Learn to Breathe Better for Good Health

By Tom Herrin

One of the few things we are able to do from birth is to breathe.  It is the most natural thing we do.  From that point on, many of us have all kinds of problems relating to our breathing.  Depending upon where you live, allergies can wreak havoc on many individuals.  Respiratory issues have become increasingly difficult.  While some of this is surely due to air quality and some is due to plant growth, some of it may actually be improved by learning how to do a better job of breathing.  It may be natural, but bad habits can do more damage than  many of us realize.

There Are Real Exercises for Breathing

If you ever had voice training, you may have had some experience with practicing breathing exercises.  They may be far more involved than any of us know.  There are exercises using our lips, nostrils, diaphragm and even while making sounds.  They are intended to help us develop good practices.  With enough correct practice, they may become habits.  Forming better breathing habits may be well worthwhile.

Good Breathing May Support Better Overall Health

It is believed that good breathing can make more difference that we may be aware of.  The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide is critical to the healthy functioning of all of our organs and tissues.  Oxygen is what enables our cells to use the food we eat.  This process is pretty amazing.  There is nothing quite like it.  After using the oxygen, much like burning a fire, our cells give off carbon dioxide.  It certainly doesn't slow down, if we are healthy.  If our breathing is efficient, our bodies work better.  This may include boosting our immunity and even helping digestion.

Good Breathing May Help Us Rest

Most of us have had the experience of getting too keyed up and resorting to purposely slowing our breathing in order to get under better control.  Intentionally slowing our breathing can help us to manage the amount of oxygen we take in and check the rate at which we do it.  Anytime we run, or walk fast, our muscles will be going through the process of using oxygen and food in accordance with the rate of the work we do.  In turn, we get rid of the carbon dioxide.  When we can improve the efficiency of our respiratory system, our bodies can get into a better rest mode.
