Breathing is Living

I read this from Aromafloria’s website and would like to share this with you:

Breathing is Living

“Long breath, long life. Short breath, short life. No breath, death.”- The Tao of Breath

The history of working with the breath is universal. Taoist masters carefully observed that our emotions influence the way we breathe. When we are angry, our breathing becomes heavy. When we are sad, our breathing becomes choked. When we are happy, our breathing becomes fluid and smooth. When we are peaceful, our breaths become long and quiet.

Breathing is something common we share with every human being. It’s with us from the day we are born and it’s the very last thing that leaves us in life. Everywhere we go we breathe, unconsciously most of the time. Thus the art of breathing is one of the most accessible tools on our road to wellness, and it costs nothing.

When we find ourselves in stressful situations, our breath becomes shorter and we even forget to breathe, leaving us with an even stronger feeling of anxiousness. By acknowledging the power of breathing, we can help ease stress with a simple exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.

Power Breath: Helps relieve stress and anxiety. Stretches lungs and increases breathing capacity. Do this ritual first thing every morning or when in stressful situations.

1. Take a deep, deep breath, filling your lungs to full capacity.

2. Exhale completely, emptying your lungs of all air.

3. Repeat five times.
