Breathing, the lungs can discharge residual gas and other metabolites, inhale more oxygen to increase or improve organ function. Breathing deeply can make a person's chest and abdominal muscles can get more substantial movement, inhale more oxygen and exhale more carbon dioxide, our blood circulation can be strengthened.
Deep breathing and Decompression
Deep breathing not only promotes the body's oxygen exchange, it also slows down heart rate and reduces blood pressure. It can alter your emotional state and increase self-awareness. It can helps you regain control of your emotions and relieve anxiety.
How does your body do it?
- Sit straight with your back against the chair, feet flat, with thighs parallel to the floor.
- Inhale through your nose. As you inhale, expand the abdomen first, and then expand the chest to the greatest limit. Hold the breath for a few seconds.
- Slowly exhale through the nose. Slowly contract the chest, and then the abdomen. Exhale as much air from the lungs as possible! The duration of exhalation should be longer than inhalation.
- Do this at least 20 times a day. Keep the rhythm smooth and gentle, do not force yourself.
