Why Breathing Exercise Is Important?

  • Deal with an anxiety or panic attack: Lie down immediately, arms crossed, and take a moderate but prolonged breath. Keep breathing until the acute anxiety subsides.
  • Reduce your stress load: To really do this effectively, you need to spend about ten minutes a day just sitting and breathing. Reducing your stress load means that the power of breathing can help you not make a mental connection in any situation.
  • Increased resistance to stress: Each inhalation causes a sympathetic response, so your heart increases slightly, and each exhalation causes the opposite response, a parasympathetic response that slows your heartbeat. Clinically, it is known as heart rate variability (HRV) and is considered a good indicator of resilience in response to stress.
  • Improve your sleep: When you practice breathing through dedicated exercises, you can breathe more naturally through your nose at all times, including while you sleep.
  • Breathing exercises can improve the capacity and function of the diaphragm, your main breathing muscle, which in turn leads to easier and deeper breathing.
  • Increase the elasticity of the lungs, because when you sit and repeat guided, regulated breathing, they are actually being trained in a physical sense.
  • Regular breathing practice and proper breathing can help protect your spine. Each good breath provides movement for the discs in your back, as well as for the diaphragm from the muscles of your back and chest, both of which affect the spine and provide muscle support by massaging it with each breath.
