Correct Breathing 4 Stress Management
The common advice when stressed is to take a deep breath, providing one of the greatest stress management tools we have - supplying the brain with more oxygen.
A lack of oxygen means a lack of mental balance, concentration, and ability to control emotions. Brain cells have a high rate of metabolism, so the brain requires much more oxygen, relatively than any other organ of the body.
Having taught & coached hundreds of clients over the last 15yrs, the majority I meet haven't been breathing correctly. And why should they? It's not something we were ever taught at school.
Yet, knowing how to breathe correctly could just save your life!.
100% for sure it will improve the quality of your life so take the time to educate yourself, practice daily & build your correct breathing muscles.
It's worth gold to your life, health & relationships.

Are you breathing correctly? Try this check-in exercise:
Place your left hand over your navel and your right hand over your chest. Breathe normally (however you usually breathe without thinking about it) Which hand(s) is moving? Left, right, or both?
If the hand over your chest is moving, you probably have a shallow breath. That is, you’re drawing insufficient oxygen when you breathe. This leads to fatigue and increases the chances of feeling anxiety.
If the hand over your navel is moving, you’re probably breathing properly. This is called diaphragmatic breathing.
To breathe from your belly, you need to expand and contract your diaphragm, which provides more oxygen to your lungs. If both hands are moving while you breathe, you probably have a combination of the two.
Another belly breathing exercise for you:
- Begin lying on your back on a flat surface, head supported by a pillow. Bend your knees (you can place another pillow under your knees for support) and place one hand on your belly and another on your chest to feel your diaphragm as you breathe.
- Now breath in slowly through your nose, feeling your stomach push against your hand as air fills the deepest point in your lungs. Note that your chest should remain as still as possible.
- Exhale through your lips while tightening your stomach muscles, letting them fall inward.
- Repeat for a total of 5mins twice a day.
And as you’ll be breathing anyway, it’s not ‘something else’ to add to your to-do list - you can get started right now!
