Breathe your way to better health

Induce your ‘Rest & Digest’

Do you take note of your emotional responses? Those physical reactions in the body when stressed… your heart beats faster, & breathing becomes more rapid & shallow. You also release more glucose into your bloodstream and may feel a knot in your stomach. This is your body moving away from its state of ‘rest-and-digest’ & getting ready for ‘fight or flight.’

Being more intentional with your posture & breathing can massively help induce a ‘rest & digest’ state

Gut brain connection…

Stress is communicated to the gut via bidirectional nerve pathways connected with the brain. This function takes place without any thought, such as the heart beating or the digestion of food.
When we are in a ‘fight-or-flight’ response, the blood moves from the gut to the larger muscles to prepare for action to avoid a threatening situation. This interferes with your digestion & therefore, your capability to receive nutrients from food. If you cannot absorb nutrients from food, this will have a detrimental effect on the way your whole body functions. It can weaken the immune system and increase inflammation in the body, causing disease.

How breathing helps reduce stress…

Do you notice how you are breathing? Chest breathing tends to be shallow. With each breath, there is a rise and fall of the shoulders, and only the chest expands. Less oxygen enters the blood, which affects digestion. There tends to be an increase in your heart rate and a tensing of muscles. It’s usually how we breathe when stressed, anxious, or in pain. Unfortunately, you will find most people have adapted their relaxed breathing to this technique without realising it.
The other type of breathing – abdominal or diaphragmatic–is how to turn off this automatic stress response. It’s one of the most effective ways to reduce muscle tension, calm the mind, and stop the fight-or-flight response in its tracks.
It has been proven that deep breathing techniques could bring about better focus, a more positive outlook, and a better ability to manage destructive impulses.
You should practice deep breathing techniques every day, even more so when stress arises, so that you are ready to handle it with calm and ease
