The value of Diaphragmatic breathing

“Deep breathing is a BIG part of your WELL-BEING. It is the current that carries the vitality to the cells.”   - Abraham Hicks

Stress can eat away at your wellbeing each day. We all have no shortage of stress and frustrations during our days and weeks. If we do not have something each day to manage this daily bombardment of negative forces then all our negative emotions can build up with disastrous consequences like melt downs, bad decisions, hostile behavior with our loved ones, nervous breakdowns and a general feeling of anxiety within us. 

Most people try to resolve the stress in their lives by trying to solve the issues around the stress in the hopes of getting rid of it. But there is always another stress just around the corner for us to handle in a never ending stream of frustration and aggregating situations. This kind of strategy never manages stress and keeps us in a state of constantly feeling overwhelmed by our life.

The truth about managing stress is having a daily modality that will help you feel better emotionally and physically. The easiest modality to manage stress that I know is  deep diaphragmatic breathing or deep belly breathing. This exercise performed daily for just a few mins will almost instantly reduce all stress hormones and allow you to think more clearly instantly. We feel better and because we aren’t under the yoke of our negative emotions, we can solve our problems easier and faster and we can enjoy this thing we all call life.

Diaphragmatic breathing is a healthy and stress relieving modality that anyone can do for free whenever they wish. Try it out.  

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
