A nice deep breath and everything passes, the mind calms down, the heartbeat becomes regular and we can start smiling at life again. Deep breathing is a perfect antidote for when you feel stressed, agitated and under pressure, but with the desire to find some tranquility.



Breathing happens automatically and without breathing we cannot live. In short, we breathe without realizing it. What if we try to notice how we breathe and take a few deep breaths, maybe right now?

To practice the deep breathing you can sit comfortably and simply inhale and exhale slowly to full lungs for a few minutes, or you can experience full yogic breathing while sitting or lying down.

Deep breathing helps calm the mind. We know how much daily worries can haunt us but we also know that in life it is necessary to have priorities. A moment of concentration and a few minutes of deep breathing help the mind to focus and regain peace and balance.

Cleanse the body

When we exhale we allow our body to expel toxins that we have accumulated with inspiration and with our lifestyle. Carbon dioxide is a waste product that comes from the body's metabolic processes. If we breathe deeply we help this process and intensify the detox action.

Relieve pain

When we feel pain we have an instinctive reaction: contract your body and hold your breath. Instead we should try to breathe deeply to help our body relieve pain. We can imagine taking our breath to the part of the body that is causing us problems. The deep breath frees the endorphins, real natural painkillers that our body has available.



Find the smile again

Maybe we are in a moment of anger or sadness but we still have to go through our day and we can't stop ourselves. We can, however, try to stop for a few moments and take a few deep breaths. It is a small solution but it really helps a lot since breaks are often a real cure-all to feel better immediately.
