Deep breathing from the diaphragm (not the chest) is a powerful way to calm anxiety. It also feeds the cells and helps the body to be healthy. Most people access less than 30% of their full breathing capacity, leaving their cells starved for oxygen. This can cause or worsen illness. Learning how to enhance your breathing can help with various health challenges and medical conditions.
Alternate Nostril Breathing is a technique that both calms the mind and also activates both sides of the brain to stimulate brain function. Gently press your thumb to close the right nostril, inhale with the left; then change sides closing the left and exhale through the right. Keep in the same position and inhale with the right, then change sides closing the right and exhale through the left. Repeat.
