10 Astonishing Reasons Deep Breathing Makes You Healthier
I love how it feels to be calm and feel vibrant. Like you can conquer the world. But did you ever stop to think about how that feeling could be connected to something as simple as deep breathing? Do you know how important deep breathing is? This generous flow of oxygen into your body, makes your 100 trillion cells become more alive! Plus, it enables the four main organs of your body- the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys- to operate and perform better.
When You Inhale More Oxygen
1. Rids Your Body of Toxins
In normal conditions, your bloodstream purifies and cleanses 70% of your body. Proper breathing carries fuel and vital oxygen to every cell in your body. The more toxic poison that you burn, the more vitality you will create!
2. Skin Firmer
With plenty of oxygen your muscles, tendons, and joints function well! Your skin becomes firmer and more resilient and your complexion clearer and more glowing. You will radiate with greater health and well-being for a longer, healthier life!
Promotes a Healthy Body
3. More Alert
When you practice deep breathing your brain will be more alert and your nervous system functions better. Many nervous diseases are due to oxygen starvation.
4. Problem Solving-Wise Decisions
Diaphragmatic deep breathing tranquilizes jangled nerves. It stimulates the brain with clear thinking and more alertness to help solve any life problems and make wise decisions.
The intentional breather enjoys more peace of mind, tranquility, and serenity. You can concentrate better by taking long, slow, deep breaths. Also, appropriate breathing stimulates brain cells and promotes new brain cell growth. Would you like to improve your logic and intelligence? I would like plenty of that!
Extends Your Life
Air is an important energizer. The more you breathe pure air, the better your chances are for extending your life. One of the most important of all physical acts is to breathe right. The rhythm and depth of your breath affect the state of your mind and body health. Deep breathing will bring in more oxygen.
Many people suffer from poor circulation in various parts of the body. This is because they don’t get enough oxygen to produce steady blood circulation into their extremities. The more oxygen you get into your body the better your circulation for your heart, hands, and feet. This helps to make your body parts warmer.
8. Sleep Better
Most adults have a sleeping problem. Over one-third, 37% are so sleepy during the day that it interferes with their daily activities. When you get more oxygen, you sleep better. Oxygen is Mother Nature’s great miracle beautifier. You will experience more deep and sound sleep. Who couldn’t use more of that?
Less Stress, Less Pain
Your body stockpiles toxic poisons. If not disposed of through the body’s avenues of elimination, they store up in the veins, arteries, joints, organs, etc. Then they accumulate and press on nerves and tissue and there is a pain. Deep breathing not only reduces toxins but also relaxes the body and releases endorphins. These are natural pain killers that create a natural high.
10. Less Stress
You will be free from tension because you can absorb the stresses and pressures in a calmer way. Your emotions will come under control. You’ll feel joyous and exuberant. People who inhale larger amounts of oxygen are happier people. Super Power Breathing also cleanses your body of psychological poisons. You will experience more joy and emotional well-being.
The breath of life means exactly what it says: To breathe is to live; not to breathe is to die. With a clean, purified body and an ample supply of oxygen, you can enjoy a more youthful, energetic healthful body for longer life. Now, close your eyes, relax, and take a few minutes to do some slow, deep breathing.
