Staten Island, N.Y. – The Villas of Manalapan suggests you take some time every day to focus on beneficial breathing techniques.
Here’s why: Most people, due to normal stress, typically breathe very shallowly, taking short and quick inhales and exhales. If you are feeling particularly stressed, your breath will be even further affected.
However, there is some very good news: The more an individual can slow down and deepen breathing, the better it is for health and well-being, posit health and wellness experts at the luxurious, near-to-Staten Island, healthy-living apartment community for seniors.
Deep breathing can reduce stress, improve energy, induce feelings of relaxation and calm, and improve your mood, so it’s wise to take a few moments each day to turn your attention to your breath and practice breathing exercises.
There are many different types of breathing exercises. Abdominal breathing, or “belly breathing,” for example, improves blood flow to the brain and activates relaxation signals. You can practice this breathwork in only five minutes, as it fits nicely into a morning routine, a midday break, and in the evening before bed.
You may also find moments in your day to incorporate it in a positive, habit-forming way, as when first getting into your car, or prior to exiting; stopping at a red light, or relaxing during a break at work.
To help guide you toward an effective breathing exercise, health and wellness experts at The Villas are sharing the following steps:
