"BREATHING EXERCISES"

Ever wanted a stress reliever that is simple enough yet holds so many benefits for your body? Then go for breathing exercises. Proper breathing clears your mind, improves your immune systems, regulates the blood pressure and even improves posture. Some breathing techniques are even know to help improve your respiratory system and send renewed energy to your body. Its the perfect therapy for relaxation, especially if you have been sitting the whole day and you feel very stagnant. And because its so easy breathing exercises can be done in between chores or during that 10 min break in the office try these easy step:

1. When doing any breathing exercise, it is always better to keep your eyes closed to avoid any distraction. Try moving to a quiet place and play some soothing music to further maximize the benefits of breathing.

2. Make sure to keep a proper posture while sitting or standing comfortably in hale deeply through your nose and visualize pure clean air entering your body. Hold your breath for a few seconds.

3. Next, imagine a straw in your mount exhale a short burst forcefully through the "staw's" small opening. Every time you puff out, imagine all the pollutants germs and other negative elements.

4. Do this repeatedly until you have completely cleansed your lungs with these short strong puffs. With each breath, you'll feel more soothed and relaxed...
