Why should we breathe through the nose rather than through the mouth?
There are little hairs in the nose designed to filter out air born particles, which are the trapped in the mucus and removed when you blow your nose for one.
But the main reason I breath through the nose is because it's easier to breath into your 'belly' that way.
And by belly I mean the deeper more meditative type of breathing referred to as Belly Breathing which feels like you are breathing into the lower belly region of your body.
I wrote this hub on the subject infact: http://digitskyes.hubpages.com/hub/Do-Y … -to-Breath
Most of the recommended meditation breathing seems to be, breathing in through the nose and then out through the mouth...but I often just use the nose for both in and out.
The tiny hairs in your nose filter out the dust and other particles that would be bad for your lungs.
Because breathing through your mouth just makes you look stupid.
Because the nose is lined with tiny hairs which act as a strainer and prevent dust entering the lungs, though they do not hinder air.
Besides purifying the air, the nose also warms it.
It is better to breathe through the nose than through the mouth.
The nose performs two very important functions when you breathe in. It warms the air and cleans it. The air is warmed by passing over the many small blood vessels that lie close to the surface within the nose. It is cleaned by passing through tiny hairs and over slimy mucus that is produced by special glands. This mucus also helps to kill germs. The mouth should act as an air-intake only in emergencies, when the nose is blocked or when large amounts of oxygen are needed.
