I have known for years that deep breathing exercises is very important for our health…and brain function. The more oxygen to the brain, the better we think and the healthier our brain and other organ systems will be. Closing our eyes and doing some slow deep breathing can also help stress.
The problem is that I don’t always take the time to pay attention to my breathing, just as long as I know that I am still doing it. But I have to try to be more conscious and make myself take deeper breaths. I wonder if that is a habit that a person can adopt...and get better at unconsciously?
