We all breath. We breath unconsciously during the course of the day and even in our sleep. Breathing is something that just happens, most of us don’t need to think about it. If you do the calculation, you will find that at rest, most of us breath between 17000 and 30000 times each day depending on our age. The older we are, the less breaths per day we take.
Breathing happens automatically. If you are fit and healthy you won’t even think about doing it. Automatic breathing is done unconsciously and without thinking about it. Let’s take a moment to think about conscious breathing.
Conscious breathing is when you consciously think about inhaling and exhaling. When you concentrate your mind and body on taking on the very source of life itself and getting rid of waste through exhaling.
If you already practice Yoga you may already do breathing exercises. If you have never tried conscious breathing you can begins with a 2 minute early morning exercise that will set you up for the day.
Practice Conscious Breathing
Begin by wearing something very comfortable. Sit comfortably and straight. Close your eyes.
Inhale deeply through your nostrils and at the same time lift your arms in a shoulder press motion. Then exhale forcefully through your nostrils while bringing your arms back to your body. As you bring your arms down turn your palms up. Perform the breaths 60 times. Do this in 3 sets of 20 in quick succession, with a brief break in-between each set of 20.
If you are trying conscious breathing for the first time begin with three sets of 10 and work your way up.
The object of the exercise is to leave you feeling energized for the rest of the day. Conscious breathing for the creative person is important as the day can be stressful. Set yourself up for the day by taking a few minutes to get centered and breath
