Learn the basics of healthy breathing
Poor breathing contributes to all of these.
Often overlooked, poor breathing habits can contribute to poor health.
Can the way we breathe negatively affect health?
If we talk a lot, breathe through the mouth, or breathe more quickly for long periods of time due to stress, we may develop the habit of over-breathing. This alters the levels of carbon dioxide in the body, causes constriction of smooth muscle surrounding blood vessels, airways and organs, and reduces oxygen delivery to the brain and tissues.
Noisy or fast breathing, habitual yawning, sighing, throat clearing, gasping, irritable coughing, snoring and breath holding are signs of poor breathing.
But breathing is automatic, right?
Yes, AND we can breathe under voluntary control. Though breathing exercises, awareness of habits, and willingness to change them, you can develop healthier breathing patterns and improve your health.
Taking a big deep breath may be your natural instinct when you read this, but what if those big breaths are contributing to our health challenges?
