Breathing the right way is to physiologically optimize oxygen intake for your body. It's the way you're designed to breathe – just that you were never taught how to do it right.
The breathing techniques we are used to, most often, call for a lot of room for improvement. Some of us tend to breathe too much, while others have gotten into the practice of shallow breathing. We may have gotten used to our style of breathing but this doesn’t make it any less stressful for our bodies. Improper breathing leads to shortage of oxygen, which results in lack of energy and a lot many health disorders.
Remember, each and every one of our body processes depend on oxygen. Some of our most work-intensive organs are:
- The brain: It uses 20% of the oxygen we consume. When there is a shortage of oxygen supply, the brain works slower, which adversely affects many other functions that are regulated by the brain.
- The heart: The human heart is constantly active. It beats about 1, 00, 000 times a day. Needless to say, the heart is a huge consumer of oxygen. Shortage of oxygen supply to the heart reduces its efficiency to pump out blood. This, of course, leads to bad blood circulation, which results in cold hands and feet.
- The muscles: Oxygen shortage has a negative effect on our stamina as the muscles get stiff, tense and they tire easily.
Crucial Effects of improper breathing
Unbalanced nervous system
Breathing plays an important role in maintaining a balanced body because each intake has an immediate effect on our nervous system. Dysfunctionalities like inhaling and not exhaling - probably for a short period but a forced one - results in a tense body, which houses high levels of stress.
Tight air canal
Bad breathing techniques constraints your air canal, which makes it tough for the air to make its way to the lungs and back. When that happens, we have to work harder, or rather, breathe faster to keep up the rhythm in our body.
Constricted blood vessels
It is not just your air canal, which gets affected; bad breathing techniques can also have an impact on your blood vessels. This leads to high blood pressure, which in turn, leads to a higher pulse rate.
Owing to the unnecessary hard work put in to keep up the body functionalities, improper breathing habits make it tough for the body to deliver oxygen to the cells. Consequently, the cells develop stress as they have to prioritize on survival techniques, rather than development techniques.
