What is “breathing properly”?
The “correct breathing” mentioned here does not refer to the extensive and profound “breathing method” of yoga (see below), but refers to the correct breathing method in general.
Have you noticed that many people flex their shoulders up and down when breathing?
The reason is that they only breathe with their chests.
This method of breathing will limit the amount of oxygen inhaled and the carbon dioxide emitted by the lungs, and at the same time make shortness of breath, easily lead to nervousness and fatigue (if you bend your back at the same time, the situation may be more serious).
Conversely, when we breathe slowly and slowly, the upper abdomen will first push forward, and then the diaphragm in the lower part of the chest will expand to the left and right (see Figure 1), and finally the air will fill the entire lung; when exhaling, the chest will relax first and finally contractAbdominal muscles, allowing all exhaust to exhale (see Figure 2).
What yoga attaches importance to is the correct breathing method that makes the body healthy.
It can greatly increase the amount of oxygen inhaled by the lungs, and also cause the lungs to emit more carbon dioxide, which makes people tremble, relax their nerves, and even help improve blood circulation and respiratory problems.
