Our Breath is a Two-Way Street

Happy Self-Care Sunday! What are your self-care plans for this Sunday? I’m enjoying some tasty cacao drink from Guatemala. I made my own chocolate bar, check it out on my Instagram or Facebook

Sharing gratitude can improve social bonds. People have reported feeling more loved and more connected to others in their lives when they routinely practice gratitude or those around them practice gratitude.

What tools do we need to practice a healthy way of life?

The environmental pollution, increased pace of life, psychosocial disturbances, eating habits, and sedentary lifestyle have increased stress levels and their related disorders.

Breathing techniques are regularly recommended for relaxation, stress management, control of psychophysiological states, and to improve organ function. Yogic breathing practice involves several types of cyclical breathing patterns, ranging from slow and calming to rapid and stimulating. 

The beauty of breathing techniques is that it unifies everything in our body and we perform better in harmony.

We can maneuver the breath and utilize the breath in certain ways to impact our emotions. The regulation of our emotions helps to better manage our mind. The breath is the tangible part of our autonomic nervous system which happens automatically.

Here Are Some Popular Breathing Techniques from The Art of Living Foundation that you may like to try. You can practice these breathing techniques at any time of the day whenever your stomach is empty.

  1. Is your mind buzzing with activity? Can’t stop thinking about what someone said about you? Find a quiet corner and try the Bee breath (Bhramari pranayama) to apply brakes in the buzzing mind. This breathing technique is a boon for those with hypertension.
  2. Among the breathing techniques, Kapal Bhati (Skull Shining breath) is considered the most important and effective for detoxifying the body and clearing the energy channels.
