Proper breathing is essential for men's wellness and is our most foundational, basic activity that we practice on a day to day basis. Think about it, when we came into this world it was the first thing we did and the last thing we do when we leave. On average we take 25,000 breaths a day. Most people have very poor breathing habits and are only utilizing 50% of the efficiency of their lungs which causes physical and emotional challenges.
A Basic Breathing Practice to Reduce Stress
Shallow, upper chest breathing accesses the upper lungs only. This method of breathing creates a stress response in the body by stimulating the sympathetic nervous system, which is that fight or flight response. This simple but effective breathing practice normalizes the breath and allows the body to relax.
