Take a Better Breath for Good Health

By Tom Herrin

A lot of the time, when we say to just take a deep breath, we use it as a common saying.  In reality, taking a deep breath may have much more meaning.  Breathing is the most basic of functions that we do.  It is necessary in order for us to take in the oxygen our bodies use to burn calories and release energy.  We usually think of it in simpler terms.  In our minds, we know there is a major connection, but we don't always think of how it works.  Improving our breathing may be a great way to improve our health in general.  With the amount of people who have respiratory issues today, taking some positive steps to do so may help in the long run.

Practice Works for Most Things

If we want to be better at a sport, we practice.  Working to improve technique is a great way to get better at anything.  As we are able to break down the parts of any skill, we may be able to form better habits.  The same is true of breathing.  For years, many people who use their voices for their livelihood have done breathing exercises.  It apparently has been successful.  Many people now advocate different kinds of exercises for breathing.  One of the primary goals is often to help develop greater lung capacity.  For those with respiratory problems, this may help them down the road.

Better Breathing May Get Rid of Bad Things

When we take in oxygen, we exhale other things in exchange.  This can help serve to purge the body of some bacteria and other impurities.  Too much carbon dioxide can be a serious problem.  On the other hand, loss of too much carbon dioxide can be troublesome as well.  Developing good breathing habits can be helpful.  Anyone who has ever participated in any kind of running event is well aware of this.

Breathe Well to Relax

Everyone will do well to have a way to relax.  Working to be able to slow down our breathing and relax can help us to focus.  It may help to sleep better at night.  Many people are into meditation or some related activities.  Pretty much all of them use some kind of controlled breathing as a part of their routine.  It certainly makes sense.
