Relaxing With Deep Breathing

Deep Breathing Exercises and Why They Work


Deep breathing techniques are often cited as an important tool that can help you alleviate stress, anxiety, frustration, and anger. However, many people have difficulty practicing deep breathing exercises because they either don’t believe that it’ll help or they try once and then don’t try again. Or it just plainly sounds to good to be true.

The more you get into a routine of practicing breathing exercises, the better you’ll become at doing so, which will give you the ability to reduce stress, anger, and frustration easier than before. Keep in mind things we are will to practice, we get better at doing. Can you imagine how much Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Serena Williams, Beethoven, or Black Violin practiced to perfect themselves.

Why do breathing exercises work to relax our bodies and minds?

The body has two systems within the nervous system: the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous system. Both of these systems contribute to the reasons why deep breathing exercises can calm us down.
