There are so many good reasons to breathe.
Here are the key points that I learnt so far.
The first is: If we don’t breathe, we die. Fact.
There are also many other health benefits.
- Our stress levels go down. Our mind is clearer.
- We make better decisions.
- We improve our immune system.
However, it is important to remember that we need to breathe correctly. Here, ‘correctly’ means DEEPLY. So breathing all the way in….. and all the way out….
I have come up with a very easy 3-step plan on how to do this:
1. Breathe in. Breathe out.
2. Breathe in. Breathe out.
3. Breathe in. Breathe out.
SLOWLY. So, breathe in for four seconds and breathe out for 6. A long out-breath is important, because it makes you feel more relaxed.
Why is this important for my confidence, Victoria?
Because if you are more relaxed, you calm down.
When you are calm, you can think clearly.
When you think clearly, you are happier, more peaceful and MORE CONFIDENT.
So be kind to yourself today and breathe in. And breathe out.
