Holistic Health Tips #9
Breathe mindfully - The process of mindful breathing is a form of meditation; and also a great way to get more oxygen into your blood and tissues. If you start right now and pay attention to how you are breathing, it is more than likely that you will find yourself breathing quite shallowly. This is not a healthy breathing pattern.
Try this: start by inhaling completely and slowly exhaling completely. If you take one minute to just do this focused breathing each day, you will find that you feel better during that minute. If you feel better in one minute why not focus on your breathing for longer periods? Pay attention to your breathing several times throughout the day and watch your stress and tiredness melt away.
So, not only will this type of breathing keep you healthy by releasing the toxins that tend to build up within your body, it will also help to manage and reduce your stress. Try some mindful breathing today!
