Health Tip – Dec. 14 – Simple Breathing Exercises – It’s Good For You!

Filed under: Dee Dee |

Take 100 deep breaths each day. Incorporate deep breathing into your life while driving, working, eating, reading, watching TV, brushing your teeth, listening to people, and before going to bed.

Place one hand on your upper chest and one hand on your abdomen. Inhale deeply through the nose while pushing outward with the stomach so your hand can feel the abdomen rise. Try not to move your hand on your chest while inhaling-you are breathing in with your stomach muscles, not the chest. Purse your lips and exhale slowly pushing your abdomen inward and upward towards the ribs. Try counting as you breathe. You should be able to count more on your exhalation. Attempt to increase this count over time.
