Be Inspired..!!

The breath is linked to our automatic nervous system. Daily breathing practices activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is associated with resting and digesting i.e. a more peaceful mind and body.

Here are some health benefits of breathing :

  • Decrease anxiety & depression.
  • Increases happiness and optimism.
  • Improve sleep.
  • Strengthen our ability to regulate emotions.
  • Improve trauma symptoms.
  • Reduce impulsivity, cravings & addictions.
  • Decrease stress & regulates our body’s level of cortisol.
  • Strengthen our immunity by altering genes responsible for stronger immunity.
  • Reduce pain and activation of pain centers on the brain.

Kabat-Zinn makes clear the powerful connection between meditation and breathing when he writes, “The breath is the current connecting body and mind…It is the current of life.” Meditative breathing is a way to connect with the here and now, which is life.
