I believe breathing is a very simple way of grounding us, keeping us centered and bringing us back to – or keeping us in homeostasis (our optimum functioning state). In particular nasal breathing. There are a number of benefits to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth. It can be a challenge to do, especially when you are sleeping or when exercising, however I think the overall benefits are well worth it.
Proper breathing is also very important. A deep steady breath in through the nose, filling your lungs from the bottom – as you will see your belly expand as well as the bottom ribs – until your lungs are full and then releasing the air – through the nose as well – exhaling twice as long as it took you to breathe in.
Try that 3 times in a row throughout your day. You will feel relaxed, revived and grounded all at the same time.
