Deep Breathing

We get more oxygen by breathing through our stomachs; which in turn reduce stress levels. Breathing through your stomach is an effective way to oxygenate blood and activate the lymph system. Breathe deeply by letting your stomach out when you breathe in, and pulling it in when you breathe out. Your mouth should be closed when you breathe in, and slightly open when you breathe out. When we breathe correctly our lungs are filled from the bottom up and this is essential for our health. Begin every day by breathing deeply 10 times, because these will kick-start your whole body. Make it a habit to take 10 deep breaths before breakfast, lunch, in the afternoon and before dinner. It only takes a couple of minutes each time, and the reward is amazing because it reduces our stress levels, make us more focused and improve our sleep. //Marianne
