Benefits of Deep Breathing

10 Quick Benefits of Deep Breathing:

  • Breathing Detoxifies and Releases Toxins
    • Your body is designed to release 70% of its toxins through breathing. If you are not breathing effectively, you are not properly eliminating your body of its toxins i.e. other systems in your body must work overtime which could eventually lead to illness. When you exhale air from your body you release carbon dioxide that has been passed through from your bloodstream into your lungs.
  • Breathing Releases Tension
    • Your muscles get tight and your breathing becomes shallow. When your breathing is shallow you are not getting the amount of oxygen your body needs.
  • Breathing Relaxes the Mind/Body and Brings Clarity
    • Oxygenation of the brain reduces excessive anxiety levels. As you relax your body, you may find that the breathing brings clarity and insights to you as well.
  • Breathing Relieves Emotional Problems
    • Breathing will help clear uneasy feelings out of your body.
  • Breathing Relieves Pain
    • You may not realize its connection to how you think, feel and experience life. For example, what happens to your breathing when you anticipate pain? You probably hold your breath. Yet studies show that breathing into your pain helps to ease it.
  • Breathing Increases Muscle
    • Breathing is the oxygenation process to all of the cells in your body. With the supply of oxygen to the brain this increases the muscles in your body.
  • Breathing Strengthens the Immune System
    • Oxygen travels through your bloodstream by attaching to hemoglobin in your red blood cells. This in turn then enriches your body to metabolize nutrients and vitamins.
  • Breathing Improves Posture
    •  Good breathing techniques over a sustained period of time will encourage good posture. Bad body posture will result of incorrect breathing so this is such an important process by getting your posture right from early on you will see great benefits.
  • Breathing Elevates Moods
    • Breathing increase pleasure-inducing neurochemicals in the brain to elevate moods and combat physical pain.
  • Proper Breathing Assists in Weight Control
