Breathe is a verb we use for the process of inhaling and exhaling.
Breath is a noun that refers to a full cycle of breathing. Breath can also refer to the air that is inhaled or exhaled.
Our Breath is one of our most powerful tools we always have access to. The key to good breathing is awareness. Conscious breathing as an active practice is hugely beneficial for stress relief, energy generation, improved focus and overall health and well-being. Here’s a couple of simple breathing exercises for you to try.
Place one hand on your lower belly and take a slow, deep breath through your mouth. Your abdomen expands as you inhale. As you exhale, blow out through your mouth again and feel your stomach contract, then release. Repeat this for three to five minutes to revitalize your body. You will feel a difference.
Integrating breath exercises into our daily lives is fairly easy and the benefits can be enormous. There are many apps available for iphone and android devices that help you relax and focus on your breathing, AND they can remind you to take time to breathe every day. Try a couple to find one you like and fits your lifestyle.
You will feel a difference!
