If you work in an office, then you will probably spend a lot of your time sitting down, which can restrict your breathing. 

For others who have to work standing up. Their jobs can cause them to do a lot of bending and standing in, tense and painful postures for long periods of time, again this can interfere with your breathing.

People who drive for a living are stuck in traffic a lot or they have their windows shut or they have them open an they are exposed to exhaust fumes.

Even those who work outside, are often exposed to dust or exhaust fumes. 

Then at the end of the day we repeat the process. During the winter months we have all the windows shut and we have the heating turned up and we are often exposed to household dust and poor air quality.

To make matters worse. These days many people spend a lot of time sitting down on digital devices or slumping on the sofa and watching TV.

And on top of this. All the stresses, challenges and struggles of modern day living, which interferes with our natural breathing processes. 

It is no wonder why so many people are tired, exhausted and struggling with emotional issues.

Our ancestors would spend more time outside, doing manual labour jobs or working in the garden, taking in fresh air, keeping active and breathing deeply.

Many people who live into the 90's. Are still full of energy, they keep fit and active, they and they live healthy and often simple, but relatively stress free lifestyles.

Relaxation and health benefits of breathing naturally

According to the belief of many experts. A lack of oxygen in the human cell tissue has been linked to the causes of many well-being and health issues and illnesses.

Oxygen is an essential element that is used by our body and the human body requires oxygen to function.

Every cell in our body needs a regular supply of oxygen to maintain good health functioning and emotional well-being.

The most important reason to breathe properly is because it will expose you to higher levels of concentrated oxygen which is important to keep you healthy and at peace. 

When we breathe correctly and naturally are bodies are able to acquire the maximum benefits from the necessary amount of oxygen which is required for the fundamental purpose of respiration. 

But the benefits of breathing correctly do not end there, because it also helps to replenish your major organs including your brain with the vital nutrients that are needed to keep them healthy and efficient.

Oxygen is brought into the lungs each time we breathe and then it is transported via our red cells to the entire body to be used as energy and help maintain healthy tissues and skin. 

When we breathe in. We take in oxygen and we then release waste gas in the form of carbon dioxide.

Breathing is the holy grail to help keep us in a calm and peaceful state and to promote good health and functioning of the body.

A lack of oxygen or poor breathing can be bad for our health, decrease energy levels and bad for our skin.

Stress, negative emotions and poor postural habits can all interfere with our natural breathing process.

Therefore it is very important that we do not allow negative emotions or tension to interfere and disrupt out natural breathing process.

When we are calm and balanced and our bodies are poised or we are engaging in physical activity oxygen is fed to our muscle tissues.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies which can be found in our bones, muscles, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and our tendons.

Collagen accounts for 30% of our bodies protein and it is made up of nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

You could describe collagen as the substance that holds our body together. Oxygen is a major component of collagen and it helps to give our skin, ligaments and tendons elasticity. 

Water consists of oxygen and hydrogen and hydrogen helps to bind the atoms of our body together.

About, approximately 70% of our body is made up of water. 

Therefore it is important that we consume sufficient amounts of water to help maintain the elasticity of our soft tissues as well as making sure we have good poise to supply our body with oxygen.

If you want good radian and healthy looking skin then it is important to keep active, have enough healthy nutrients, drink enough water and to breathe naturally. 

Breathing is the center of our being

Although in times of stress and anxiety. It can help to take some slow deep breaths, to return you to a state of calm 

Or if you're about to face a challenging or stressful situation. Doing some deep rhythmic breathing can help to calm your nerves and help to condition your mind that the forthcoming situation is safe.

If you find yourself in a stressful or challenging situation and you notice that you're holding your breath or you're breathing is shallow and rapid.

Breathe out slowly first, as this can help to engage your natural breathing, and then take some slow deep breaths. Also try and release and tension, that you maybe holding onto.

Breathing is a process that should happen naturally and you should not have to try and control your breathing. Just allow it to happen.

So, what are the things that can interfere with your natural breathing process?

Any form of tension in your body can affect your natural breathing process as can poor postural habits, such as allowing your body to collapse, having a rounded back and hunched up shoulders.

Breathing involves the movement of both the ribs and the diaphragm. 

At times when our bodies are tense, slouched or out of balance and alignment. Or if we are sitting for prolonged periods of time.

This can tighten the muscles around our ribs, affecting the muscles around our diaphragm and restrict our breathing and prevent our lungs from filling to their maximum capacity.

The diaphragm that regulates our breathing is connected to our anterior side of our lumbar spine, can become stuck if our bodies are tense or out of balance.

This can reduce our blood flow and lead to poor circulation. It can also affect our mood and our thought processes.

Stress and anger can also disrupt your breathing patterns. 

Good poise and balance. Where we are sitting out our full natural height and expansion (Without tensing or stiffening) can help to release our diaphragm and activate better circulation.

When people are feeling stressed, angry, anxious and tense or they're trying to relax. They will sometimes, try to control their breathing.

This can give temporary relief. But, it is hard to breathe properly, if your body is still tense, you have shortened in stature or your body is out of balance and sync.

The mind and body are connected. This means your thought processes and how you feel are both linked to each other.

This means. Your mind can affect your body and your physical state can affect your mind. 

When both are out of sync, you can get stuck in a self perpetuating negative emotional, physical and mental state,.

Which will keep on repeating itself, until you restore a state of calm back to both your mind and body.

Our breathing is not a separate function and mechanism. It is linked to your posture, your internal state and your muscles.

Therefore. Trying to breath naturally, whilst have poor or tense posture and muscles. Is not going to really to help that much.

Having good poise and balance will allow you to breathe naturally, without having to try. When we free ourselves of tension and we practice good poise and balance. 

We automatically breathe well. Just like we did, when we were young children.

By learning how to relax and by eliminating poor tension and postural habits and keeping active. It will help to maintain our oxygen levels both in our body and brain.

Allowing our brains to regulate a health balance of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, which will ensure we have a healthy balance present within our body.

Sit and stand with poise and good balance

All children breathe naturally and all children have good poise and balance. 

But life can throw at us many hardships and challenges that can cause us to habitually respond to with stress and tension or the shortening or collapsing of our body.

Some people try to physically correct their posture, to what they think is good posture. But often, they just tense or over stiffen their body and end up returning back to their collapsed posture. 

All these bad tension and postural habits can interfere with our breathing. 

The video below, will show you how to sit and stand at your full natural height, with the least amount of tension. Allowing you to release any tension so you will breathe naturally and effortlessly.

Some people suck their stomach in, hold a lot tension, lift up their chest or they slouch forwards. All of these can interfere with your natural breathing process.

In order to breathe properly, your stomach should be nice and relaxed. 

To re-adjust, relax your stomach then breathe deeply and allow your stomach to push out and relax and then breathe in and repeat a few times.

Tight or restricted clothing can also affect your breathing.  



Breathing will bring you back into the present

When we are anxious it is because we have left the now and we are fearing or worrying about the future. 

When you breathe deeply it will bring you back to the peace of the present moment where all your power, creativity and inner genius talents lies leaving you feeling better emotionally, mentally and physically.

All you have to do is consciously spend a few minutes or more at varying periods of the day to consciously take full control of your breathing. 

When, you're not functioning efficiently and performing at your top levels, it's due to stress and negative emotions and you will probably find that shallow breathing is the root source of the problem

At times when you have been experiencing high levels and prolonged periods of stress and anxiety, then your body will be filled with toxins and waste, breathing will help you rid your body of all those potentially harmful toxins. 

Then, once you remove the build up of toxins and waste from the body you will begin to feel more vibrant, you will look younger and your skin will look brighter and more youthful, plus those frown lines will fade a bit.

Be more creative and intelligent

To be at your creative best, to manifest better and to improve your focus and concentrate you will need to be in the zone and the now flow state of zero resistance.

Breathing will help to center and balance you and put you in your natural state where your life force energy flows freely and as you become calmer and balanced all your mental faculties will greatly improve.

When your at peace with yourself and this world you will become connected to the universal unified mind of creative intelligence and you will have access to the information you have been searching for all your unanswered questions, challenges and problems. 

When you're calm, centered and balanced, your inner intelligence and genius will get a boost, deep relaxation is the place where you can make positive changes and it is no surprise that breathing is the relaxing introduction and the key component that is used for hypnosis and meditation.

Stopping the stressful response

At times when we feel challenged, we can forget to breath or we hold our breaths.

When you begin to feel stressed or anxious don't fight it.  Just consciously step in and take back control of your breathing, which will prevent all the other unpleasant physical symptoms from gathering momentum. 

All you have to do is on the onset of any stress or anxiety, just deliberately breathe out for longer first then breath in.

And then continue you to take slow deep breaths, making sure the outbreath is longer than the in one whilst releasing any tension at the same time.

When you do this your body has no option but to begin to switch back over to a relaxed state again.

This can prove a hard to do to begin with because you're going against the normal patterns of the fight or flight response, but it is necessary if you want to avoid all the unneeded adrenaline, stress and anxiety. 

Also, do not allow your imagination to trick you into believing that you're in danger, just ignore what's being played out in your mind and calmly continue to focus on your breathing a bit like you would if you were meditating.

So, when you start to feel anxious, fearful or stressed stop and pause for a moment and just focus on your breathing. 

Try not to become engaged or overwhelmed by your imagination or the physical feelings you're experiencing in your body because what you're aiming for is to stop the negative momentum from gathering pace.

Just focus on your breathing and begin to take some slow, deep breaths in for the count of five, hold for three then slowly breathe out for the count of seven, push all the way out and keep on repeating. 

If you carry on doing this and as long as you don't get too distracted and negatively respond to your fearful thoughts and feelings, your body will start to return back to a more relaxed state. 

The key is not to wrestle with your feelings, but just let them come and go and all you need to do is keep on breathing.

You can also do this before you enter a situation where you normally feel stressed or challenged, it's all about retraining your body so you longer respond stressfully in those old stressful situations and events.

Breathing exercises

It can pay dividends to take some time to learn how to regulate your breathing properly, the correct way to breathe should be done from your diaphragm and not your chest. 

The diaphragm is a large, muscular structure which perpetrates your chest and your abdomen.

If you want to practice breathing correctly, then lay on your back and place your left hand on your chest and your right hand on your abdomen. 

Take some slow, deep breaths, make the out breath longer than the in breath, take a deep slow breath in, hold for a few seconds and then take a slow controlled longer out breath. 

Your right which is being held on your stomach should rise up and down whilst your left hand should stay still. 

All this might seem like hard work, but breathing is proven to relax you and relaxation is the opposite too stress and anxiety so there is only one sensible choice.
