If you’re looking for an exercise you can resist, Resistance Breathing is just the thing.
Resistance Breathing can offer a bounty of benefits:
2. It increases energy.
3. It enhances mental focus.
4. It can help reduce stress.
5. It is an integral part of the things you want to try—be it yoga, tai chi, karate, running, rowing, cycling, and especially swimming since it will help you hold your breath for a longer period of time.
Only after you check with your physician to see if Resistance Breathing is right for you, will you be ready to begin this empowering breathing technique.
Purse the lips; place the tip of the tongue against the inside of the upper teeth; hiss through clenched teeth; and tighten the throat muscles. While it’s important to see how quickly you can inhale and exhale fully, it’s even more important that you don’t hyperventilate. Also, don’t just raise your shoulders and chest, let your abdomen fully expand as you breathe in.
If you’re having trouble visualizing or mastering Resistance Breathing, you may want to try a respiratory trainer. Breathslim® is a health and wellness tool that employs the concept of resistance breathing via metered aero-dynamic resistance during 20-minute exercises that should be done everyday—or better yet, every night to ensure a sound sleep and a sound lifestyle.
