The importance of breathing properly.
When you breathe diaphramatically, that is, down into the
lower part of your lungs, a chemical change takes place .Your blood pressure
and pulse rate return to normal. It will also help to lower your cholesterol
count. This will add years to your life's expectancy .Take a deep breath,
pushing out your stomach and rib cage, rather than raising your chest. This
is diaphramatic breathing. Once you have mastered the technique of breathing
correctly, you will be well on your way to deep relaxation. Practice this
breathing as you go about your day. Five deep breaths in through the nose
and out through the mouth, then find a rhythm that is comfortable for you,
and continue breathing comfortably.
