Deep Belly (Diaphragmatic) Breathing

Many of us can get into the habit of breathing only with our chest. This is far less efficient than diaphragmatic (belly) breathing.

Diaphragmatic breathing has loads more benefits as well:

  • Helps you relax and lower stress levels

  • Slows your rate of breathing

  • Can help to lower your heart rate and blood pressure

  • Helps improve improves your core muscle stability

How to Belly Breath:

  • Sit or lie flat in a comfortable position

  • Put one hand on your belly (just below your ribs) and the other hand on your chest

  • Take a deep breath in through your nose, and let your belly push your hand out

  • Breathe out through pursed lips as if you are whistling

  • Do this breathing 3 to 10 times

I hope you start to notice the benefits - it does take practice!
