Proper Breathing brings Better Health
Best Breathing exercises
American Spine Center recommends that not only that you should be pain free, we also would love for you to be stress free with the best breathing exercises that we recommend.
First off pick a comfortable room and quiet room to do your breathing exercises. Wear comfortable clothes in this exercise, now take a deep breath in, and let that breath out. You breath is an extremely powerful tool to ease your stress and makes you definitely feel less anxious. Simply, do this exercise once or twice a day.
As we all know many people take short, swallow breaths into their chest, which can make you feel anxious and zaps your energy. With the deep breathing technique American Spine Center will teach how take bigger breaths, all the way into your belly.
Get very comfortable, lie your back in your bed or on the floor with a pillow under your head and knees. Also we suggest you sit in a chair with your shoulders, head and neck supported against the back to the chair.
Next, breathe in through your nose, and let your belly fill with air. Breathe out through your nose. Place one hand on your belly, place the other on your chest. As you breathe in, feel your belly rise, as you breathe out, you can feel your belly lower. The hand that is placed on your belly should move more than the hand on your chest. Lastly take three more full, deep breaths, and then proceed to take three more full deep breaths, breathe fully into your belly as it rises and falls with your breath.
While you do the deep breathing exercises as I explained above, use a picture in your mind and word or phrase that can help you feel more relaxed, American Spine Center suggest you say the following, “ I love my myself, I love myself” or you can say “ I am thankful for what God gave me.”
To begin with this exercise, close your eyes, next take a few big deep breaths. Breathe in, while doing that imagine that air is filled with a deep sense of peace and calm, try to feel it throughout your body. Then proceed to breathe out, while you’re doing it, imagine that the air leaves with your stress and tension. Continue this exercise for the next 10-20 mins.
