Breathing correctly is important for living longer, keeping a good mood, relaxing, de-stressing and performing at your optimal best. Even in Greek and Roman times, there are documents of doctors recommending deep breathing and voluntary holding of air within the lungs to improve relaxation and de-stress. It began with the belief that this exercise cleansed the system of impurities and gave strength. This is certainly of great value to everyone in our stressful, work filled, non-stop world. So, what are some of the health benefits and why should you make breathing exercises part of your everyday living?
