Breathing is something that is essential for human beings to live and function, pretty much every human breathes on a daily basis. For those whom may struggle with breathing, or do not realize the importance of breathing and a healthy respiratory system, Moodzie has some tips and info, regarding how to breath more efficiently and the true benefits of breathing healthily.

As Moodzie has stated already, breathing in a healthy manner is very important for living a healthy life, and one thing that can help people do that, is beginning to do breathing exercises. As breathing exercises have great benefits, they help you feel much more calm and relaxed, especially when you do deep breathing exercises, you all of a sudden feel much more, fresh and calm. Deep breathing itself actually is known to lower stress levels within the body, and it is mainly because when we breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. A tip by Moodzie, go on now and practice a deep breathing exercise, and see whether or not you feel relaxed all of a sudden, if you did it correctly, you will certainly be feeling relaxed and fresh.

Tips by Moodzie on how to manage high blood pressure or a fast heart rate, breathing exercises! As when you do some deep breathing, not only are you relaxed but it is great for your health as studies show, that heart rate is decreased (in the healthy way), and blood pressure becomes more stabilized. Breathing exercises are also very simple to learn, as you can really do them whenever and wherever you want to, there are no complexities regarding these exercises.

Moodzie’s favourite breathing exercise might be belly breathing, because it is so simple and easy to do, but still a great and healthy way to improve your overall breathing ability. Tips for belly breathing, simply lie flat in a comforting position, put one hand on your belly just below your ribs and another hand on your chest, take deep breathes through your nose and let your belly push your hand out, breathe out through your lips as if you were whistling, and take your time while doing this process a total of 3 to 10 times.

Belly breathing is probably, the simplest breathing exercise, more advanced breathing exercises such as Morning breathing are a tougher to do but equally has beneficial. As you begin in a standing position and bend forward with your knees slightly bent, as you inhale slowly return to a standing position lifting your head last, hold your breath for a few seconds when standing, exhale slowly as you return to the original position, and notice how you feel at the end. In overall terms, there are many more exercises, but these two are Moodzie’s favourite and also relatively easy to do, Moodzie encourages everyone to live a healthy life, and breathing right is very important for that.

Moodzie believes that breathing is essential for chilling out. Below are some great tips to assist with breathing.
