Do you always find yourself in stress or anxiety? Do you get hyper very often? Or are you always in a hurry to complete your tasks and always try to multi-task? If your answer to all these questions is yes, then my dear, you need to relax a bit and calm yourself down.
Our lives have become so busy that we have lost time for ourselves. It’s very important to spend some time with yourself and think about our self. We are always stuck between our responsibilities that we forget to concentrate on what our body needs. Our body and mind also need to relax. It also needs time to refresh. Deep breathing can help us relieve stress and relax our body.
Why is deep breathing important?
- It relaxes your muscles
Deep breathing helps your muscles to relax and increases the blood circulation to the muscles. It also helps to release the physical tension of the muscles.

The process of digestion requires oxygen. The oxygen the body gets the more its better.

The more you breathe the more your body relaxes and soothes the mind. Deep breathing lifts your mood and makes your body more active.

Deep breathing helps in increasing the blood flow to all the parts of the body. This makes you feel livelier.
Make sure to deep breathe daily for about 15-20 minutes. Trust me, you will feel more relaxed and fresh! Take some time out for yourself from the daily routine and let your body rejuvenate. Work and family responsibilities are the part and parcel of life but it’s up to you how you can make yourself happier by doing simple things.
