    Breathing deeply can improve blood pressure, reduce stress, and help with chronic conditions.

    Breathe in. Breathe out. We do this all day, every day without a thought. Ask yourself this- when was the last time you took a deep breath? Probably not as frequently as you think. I would venture to say only a few times a day. But did you know that deep breathing is one of our easiest, most convenient and natural tools to combat issues like stress and anxiety, reduce pain, high blood pressure and even aide in digestion.

    This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body. Those things that happen when you are stressed, such as increased heart rate, fast breathing, and high blood pressure, all decrease as you breathe deeply to relax.

    When you learn to take deep, slow breaths, your body reacts in many positive ways:

    1.Decreases stress, increases calm.When you become stressed or anxious, your brain releases cortisol, the “stress hormone.” By taking deep breaths, your heart rate slows, more oxygen enters our blood stream and ultimately communicates with the brain to relax. Deep breathing also ups your endorphins, the “feel good”.

    2.Relieves pain.As stated above, deep breathing triggers the release of endorphins, which not only helps create a feeling ing, but also combats pain.

    3.Lowers blood pressure.As your muscles let go of tension, your blood vessels dilate and your blood pressure can return to a normal level.

    4.Improves immunity.When your blood is fully oxygenated, it carries and absorbs nutrients and vitamins more efficiently. Essentially, the cleaner the blood, the harder it is for illnesses to stay put in your system.

    5.Detoxification improves.Good breathing habits help the lymphatic system function properly, which encourages the release of harmful toxins. This cleanses the body and allows it to direct its energy to more productive functions.

    Anyone can benefit from deep breathing technology, and it also plays a particularly important role in the recovery from COVID-19. You can use a breathing exerciser like OPUMP for breathing exercises at home. OPUMP provides a wealth of breathing training courses to meet your various needs and help you develop good breathing habits.
