Why you should practice deep breathing everyday?


Did you know that your body is designed to release almost 70% of its toxins through breathing and if you are not breathing effectively, you are not properly ridding your body of its toxins. Due to this, other systems in your body work overtime which could eventually lead to illness.

Everytime you exhale, you release carbon dioxide that has been passed through from your bloodstream into your lungs. In fact, carbon dioxide is a natural waste of your bodys metabolism.

Now, think how your body feels when you are tense, angry, scared or stressed. It constricts. Your muscles get tight naturally and your breathing becomes too shallow. When your breathing is shallow you are not getting the amount of oxygen that your body needs. That is the reason people ask you to breathe in these situations.

Deep breathing releases tension and brings clarity and insights to you.Deep breathing also strengthens your immune system as oxygen travels through your bloodstream by attaching to hemoglobin in your red blood cells. This in turn then enriches your body to metabolise nutrients and vitamins.

It has also been found that if you practice deep breathing regularly, your lung becomes healthy and powerful and protects you from respiratory diseases. Another thing to keep in mind is to breathe in the correct manner.

In fact, proper breathing is a bigger process than you think. It involves pulling air all the way into the depths of your lungs and pushing your diaphragm down in the process. This improves the amount of blood that returns to your chest and helps detoxify the body. Reach out to our fitness trainer to learn more about breathing.
