Learning to Breathe Right!

There isn’t much stress put on how important it is to breathe right. We are so busy during our daily activities that we obviously don’t have time to pay attention to this. However, you’ll find that over time, if you just concentrate more on your breathing, you will find you are much more relaxed and stress free. When my nutritionist checked my breathing he gave me a little exercise to follow, keep your hand on your stomach and as you inhale make sure your hand rises with your stomach. Do not inhale with your chest. Make sure you inhale and exhale through your diaphragm, this is how you will reach utmost relaxation. A bit of meditation in our fast paced lives isn't such a bad idea.
