Why Deep Breathing is Good For You Breath – life force

  • You have a built-in source of power that you are likely not using to it’s full – by a long shot
  • That source of power is your breath
  • Your breath is quite literally your life force – it:
    • Feeds every part of your body with energy
    • Helps your body remove waste/toxins
    • Boosts your immune systems
    • Makes your heart stronger
    • Improves your skin, digestion, and sleep
  • If you’re constantly low on energy and you have trouble thinking clearly, there’s a good chance you’re breathing could use a tune-up

The challenge with breathing

  • Your lungs are an organ of volume – that have a capacity – which means that it’s possible to get into the habit of using only a portion of their total capacity
  • Today’s lifestyle in modern society contributes to poor breathing habits, including:
    • Bad posture
    • Lack of exercise
    • Work that requires a lot of sitting
  • Since your lungs supply oxygen – or life force – if you only use 70% of your lungs’ capacity, this means you miss out on 30% of that life force
  • Imagine how your life would improve with 30% more energy and clearer thinking!
  • Unless you do something to maintain or improve your breathing capacity, it will decline, and with it, your general health, and life expectancy
