Because Less Stress Slims The Waist
I learned this de-stressing technique not long ago and couldn’t wait to share it with you! It’s super fast, easy and effective, and, believe me, you need it! We live in a fast-paced world, trying to accomplish 10 things at once. Whether we succeed or not (and whether it’s worthy or not) won’t be my focus today, but the stress we lay on ourselves without even realizing it.
Diaphragmatic breathing is a technique that will help you fix your “overactive” mind and relax your body. It’s also super efficient for fighting anxiety and reducing heart rate.
People are tensed and anxious, especially we women.
Stress weakens our mind and physical health and negatively impacts our endocrine, metabolic and immune systems.
What Should You Do?
Start breathing deeply in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. Do it slowly both directions (in and out). You can also close your eyes, if it helps you relax more, but it’s not something crucial for the result.
What’s essential is that you think about your breathing and try to make it rhythmatic. Focus on clearing your lungs while simultaneously releasing all dirt (both physical and mental).
As you inhale, fill your stomach with air and push it out. Then as you exhale, you press your stomach back in while expanding your chest.
Repeat for 3-5 minutes.
You have to alternate stomach chest expanding and combine it with nose-mouth breathing. the more you practice it the more natural it will become and you won’t put that much thought into it.
If you have already learned the technique, try to boost the effect by doing the following:
Breathe in as long as possible and hold your breath for 2-3 seconds then try to exhale as slow as possible.
This de-stressing technique will help you feel in self-control and calm by balancing your parasympathetic and sympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous systems and improving your cardiovascular efficiency.
