The impact of breath to destress in Mougins
Breath is the movement of air into and out of the lungs.
The primary function of breath is to give oxygen to the organs and tissues.
Breath requires the movement of two cavities of the body: thoracic and abdominal.
Research into the physiological effects of deep breathing have shown significant effects on the respiratory, cardiovascular, lymphatic and autonomic nervous systems.
Additionally, the breath is connected to the mind and emotional state.
When the breath is agitated, the mind as well and the body too.
So a good breath is essential for your health and your wellbeing.
Practicing deep breathing exercises is a good way to improve your breath.
This basic but fundamental exercise is a good start.
