We all breathe and our bodies do it automatically. This doesn’t mean that we can’t breathe better.
Use your nose and belly. Breathing through your nose slows your breathing and makes it more efficient, while helping to filter toxins. Using your belly is also efficient, as it pulls the lungs downward.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also help you breathe better. Regular exercise, avoiding large meals, keeping your weight down and quitting smoking can all help you improve your breathing.
If you have a respiratory condition, there are things you can do to help maintain healthy breathing. Staying hydrated, wearing protective equipment and performing relaxation exercises can all help.
In the end, though, don’t overthink things. Your body knows what it’s doing.
