3 ESSENTIAL TIPS
1. PEACE OF MIND
One way I see the breath, is that breath is the music that has the body move. The more conscious of the breath, the healthier we breathe. The more healthier we breathe, the more healthier we move. The more healthier we move, the more healthy the body is. The more healthier the body is, the more at ease we are. And the more at ease we are, the more we are at peace.
Simply put, stress restrains our breathing. Relaxing frees the breath. Tuning into the breath relieves stress. The key is being connected: aware of how you breathe first. Once you have a solid practice of relational breathing, advanced breathing techniques will be more effective.
2. AWARENESS OF HOW YOU BREATH IS THE FIRST STEP.
This practice is called Relational Breathing because it is your relationship to your breathing that will make the most significant difference. As with any successful relationship, it is important to be patient, observant and receptive as you listen to your breath, practicing being present to it, versus being restless and forcing the breath.
Will you make time to just listen and observe how you are breathing? Your breathing changes all the time throughout the day. Notice how you breathe when you are walking, i.e. to your car, standing in a bank line, or sitting at your desk. Notice how you are breathing when you are happy and excited, and perhaps, when you are sad or mad. When you have a cold, instead of forcing your self to breathe, just notice how you are breathing. There are many opportunities in which to observe your breath.
Being curious and conscious of the breathing brings you more and more aware of, and in harmony with your physical being and sensations, which brings more life into your body. The more attention you give to your breathing, and the sensations you experience and become aware of, the more energy and vitality you will have.
