In today's episode of The Mind Your Health Podcast, I am getting into a topic that affects us every second of every day: breathing. We breathe in; we breathe out. But... have you ever stopped to consider the physiological effects that breathing has on our bodies, especially when it comes to stress?
Breath is power. It's not just the process of taking in oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. Breathing can get us both in and out of fight or flight mode. Deep, conscious breathing can stimulate a calming domino effect in our bodies, helping to counterbalance stress and evoke calmness.
When we breathe deeper, more oxygen in our blood translates to improved cell function, enhanced thinking and focus, and better energy metabolism. By optimizing oxygen levels, we equip our bodies to better combat the wear and tear of daily stressors.
I hope this episode WAKES YOU UP and helps you realize the power of breath. In the next 15 minutes, you'll discover...
