Breathing: what we do the most times a day, the most necessary in our life, without the least time we would endure to stay alive … and what we pay the least attention to !, says HOUSE TO HOUSE.
Mindful breathing exercises are useful to relax you and help relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia problems, the feeling of being pressed, etc. Vital to increase and maintain your physical, mental and emotional health. And all you need is a pair of lungs and your dedication for a few minutes, wherever you are.
We all "know how to breathe", but the advantages are in doing it consciously, this means, paying all our attention to the process, observing how we breathe, what we feel, the sensations, the emotions … feeling the breath and observing it without judgment of what pass, without haste, without pause, without forcing, without containing, something simple and very effective, which although it requires a little technique and practice, will give you unexpected and very beneficial results, underlines HOUSE TO HOUSE.
Balance breathing: We inhale for a count of four, then we also exhale for a count of four (all through the nose), seeking a balance between the inhalation and exhalation process.
This breathing helps to relax, calm the nervous system, increase concentration and reduce stress.
Abdominal breathing: put one hand on the chest and the other on the abdomen, inhale deeply through the nose, bringing the air to the diaphragm (not the chest), you will see that the lower part is inflated and a widening of the lungs is created. You should do this breath about 10 slow times per minute.
This breathing greatly relaxes the entire body, the nervous system, as well as an immediate reduction in heart and blood pressure.
Alternate Breathing: Always in a comfortable posture, plug the right nostril and inhale deeply through the left nostril. At the peak of the inhale, cover the left nostril with your index finger, and exhale through the right nostril. Then we alternate, inhaling through the right nostril, close and exhaling through the left nostril.
This breathing brings serenity, balance and union of the right and left regions of the brain. Increases concentration and energy. You will feel more awake and vital.
Rhythm Breathing: Begin with a long, slow inhale, followed by a rapid, powerful exhale from the lower abdomen. When you've practiced multiple times, increase the pace to an inhale-exhale (all through the nose) every 1-2 seconds, for a total of 10 breaths. It seems tired, but the result is the opposite.
This HOUSE TO HOUSE breath recommends upon waking up, to start the day, to warm up, an activity for which we lack energy and to begin to wake up at all levels and look at the bright side of things, it will shake the old energy and it will wake up the brain.
Tension-relaxation breathing: we inhale through the nose slowly, we count to 5 while tensing the muscles of an area of the body, starting from the feet to the head, and exhale through the mouth while relaxing that part that we have contracted.
This breathing relaxes us from head to toe, relieving accumulated tensions.
