Take control of your breath and keep your mind in control

Take control of your breath and keep your mind in control

A new study has found evidence to show that there is actually a direct link between nasal breathing and our cognitive functions.Breathing is managed in the unconscious, but at any moment we can grab the controls and consciously change how we breathe. With mastery over your breathing you can help to improve your cardiovascular health, respiratory muscle function, physical strength, mental control, emotional stability, levels of hunger, your ability to digest food, your energy levels, your reproductive health and well as your ability to regenerate body tissues at a cellular level. Controlled breathing not only keeps the mind and body functioning at their best, it can also lower blood pressure, promote feelings of calm and relaxation and help us to remove stress.
1) Control your mind
Breathing affects the brain regions responsible for memory and emotional processing, additionally, that the act of breathing itself, even in the absence of smells, can influence our emotions and memory.

2) Deep breath helps to better digestion
Those of you suffering from poor digestion, bloating, or constipation will benefit from learning how to put your body into “rest and heal” state and activate parasympathetic nervous system. This is the only state when your body can digest food efficiently.

3) Warming you up!
This is another great exercise for waking up, warming up, or changing your outlook from negative to positive! It will get your body warmed up and ready for exercise, slough off your stale energy, and get your brain alert.

The way you breathe is the way you live. Breathing is absolutely essential to life, but it’s often overlooked as a necessity for good health. Full, free breathing is one of the most powerful keys to enhancing physical, emotional, and spiritual well being.

To master our breath is to be in control of our bodies and minds.
