3 breathing techniques to feel better and avoid nervous disasters
Proper breathing helps to relax, calm down, relieve stress and get rid of stupid and negative thoughts in the head. Intelligent people advise instead of responding rudely to rudeness or stupidity for stupidity (or shouting at a disobedient child), it's better to stop, take a deep breath, count to 10 and ... keep silent with neutral emotions.
How to perform? Sit in a comfortable position, the back should be straight. Begin to inhale up to 4 counts and exhale, then to 4 count. Breathing is done through the nose - this increases the natural resistance to breathing. More advanced users can perform this technique on 6-8 counts. This increases attention, calms the nervous system and reduces stress.
When is it best to perform it? Practicing can be done anywhere and anytime, but it's best to do this before bed. This is something like a kind of counting lambs before going to bed, since Vritti's Self helps to get rid of thoughts about work or problems that have not bothered you during the day.
"Abdominal breathing technique"
How to perform? Take a deep breath through the nose, expanding the diaphragm (not the chest) gives the necessary air pressure to stretch the lungs. If you want to feel a noticeable drop in blood pressure and a reduction in heart rate, you should perform 6 to 10 deep breaths for 10 minutes every day. Hold out for at least 6 weeks, and you will feel the positive effects of this respiratory equipment for a long time.
When is it best to perform it? This technique is better to use before any stressful situation. The only "but" - in stressful situations a person controls his breathing very badly, so you have to practice a little.
"Alternative Breathing through the Nostrils"
How to perform? This breathing technique gives a sense of balance and tranquility, and also unites the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Sit in a meditative posture convenient for you, with your right thumb, press the right nostril and take a deep breath through the left one. At the peak of the inspiration, close the left nostril with a ring finger and exhale through the right nostril. Then, do the same with an inhalation through the right nostril and inhale through the left.
When is it best to perform it?
It is best to do this when there is little time or you need to quickly concentrate. Just do not try to do this before going to sleep, as this technique "cleans channels" and works just like a cup of coffee.
