How breath can beat stress
He says: “At age 30 our lung capacity begins to decrease. By age 50 it can be up to half of what it was when we were younger. This has a negative effect on the body, as it means less oxygen is getting to our cells, and we experience shortness of breath, a decrease in endurance, and become more susceptible to illness associated with the lungs.”
Brulé, adds “The famous Framingham study, which followed over 5 000 people over three decades, found that lung volume is the greatest predictor for health and longevity. This isn’t surprising, as a decreased lung capacity has many negative impacts on our health.”
A decreased lung capacity can:
- Impair your metabolic function due to the lack of oxygen;
- Increase the risk of having a heart attack or stroke;
- Result in poor energy and general fatigue;
- Produce a decline in concentration and memory and lead to increased inflammation.
You can learn to see breathing as a behavior that either serves you or doesn’t serve you. You can also begin to choose to breathe in a way that serves. With practice this will become a habit or a natural reflex. So whenever you start to feel anxious, your practiced breathing pattern will kick in and you will change state. You can beat stress with breath!
