    Stay Fit with Deep Breathing Exercises

    Exercise does not necessarily always have to be about you being physically active.  There are several different forms of effortless exercise that you can use on a daily basis which will help you to get physically fit, lose some weight and feel better from the inside out.  A good example of this is deep breathing exercises, something that many of us never take advantage of.  The fact of the matter is, breath is life and if we take advantage of these effortless exercises, we can help to enhance our life in a number of different ways.  Not only will our breathing improve on a regular basis, we may find that it helps our mind to relax as well.

    Whenever we breathe, the air from the outside is pulled into our lungs.  It is then distributed throughout our body by our bloodstream.  You might be surprised to learn that the air is taken directly into the bloodstream and then through the heart before it is dispersed into the rest of the body.  It is that important for us to make sure that we have a constant supply of oxygen because without the oxygen, our life would cease to exist.  Although we all breathe on a regular basis, making sure that we breathe properly can go a long way in improving our health.

    How can you tell if your breathing properly?  Whenever we breathe, our lungs are filled with air but something else takes place if we are breathing in the right way.  Our diaphragm moves up and down as a result of our lungs being filled up with their and in order to increase the capacity whenever we are breathing in.  This diaphragm also makes our stomach go in and out and if you do not see this happening, you are not breathing deep enough.  By doing deep breathing exercises on a daily basis, you will be reprogramming yourself to breathe properly.

    There are several different deep breathing exercise routines that you can do.  Your best choice is to buy a DVD so that you can breathe along with the individual while you are sitting in front of your television set.  Eventually, you will be able to practice these exercises no matter where you are but it certainly helps to be able to do so at first in the privacy of your own home.  Try this form of effortless exercise for yourself for a month, you would be surprised with where it will take you.

      You make an excellent point that exercise doesn't have to be fast paced.  A good reminder.  Thanks.

    You know, you could make a hub out of this post instead.

    Anyways, I agree that exercise doesn't need to be exerting yourself until you feel like passing out.

    Tai Chi is an excellent example of deep breathing exercising! Yoga too!

    Your post motivated me to finish up a very complicated but critical Hub I was writing on one of my favorite subjects - diaphragmatic breathing. … -is-a-Must
