Breathing controls the state of mind.

Breathing affects:
    • manifestation of talents
    • performance of the intellect
    • memory
    • state of mind
    • meditation

    Breathing occurs in the body, but this process is very subtle and greatly affects the mind.

    During breathing, you:
    • get oxygen,
    • get rid of accumulated carbon dioxide,
    • get rid of toxins,
    • receive "prana" - vital energy.

    When there is little prana in the body, there is a dulling of emotions, a dulling of intelligence.

    You receive prana from:
    • food,
    • sunlight
    • and the maximum amount - from the air.

    With proper breathing, prana calms down and the mind calms with prana.
    What is improper breathing?

    Most often, we breathe using the upper part of the lungs, especially in the absence of physical activity. In this case, only the small upper part of the lungs is filled and there is a constant lack of oxygen.

    The consequences of improper breathing can be:
    • psychological problems,
    • emotional problems,
    • intellectual problems.

    How to breathe?

    Types of breathing:
    clavicular (collar bone) breathing - shallow breathing;
    chest breathing - requires a lot of energy;
    abdominal breathing - diaphragm breathing - deep and effective breathing;
    • complete yoga breathing involves all three levels above, so it is the most effective.
    Full yogic breathing:
    1. Start an inhalation through the diaphragm, inflate the lower parts of the lungs, then fill the chest with air and end in the clavicular region — this is a full inhalation.

    2. Exhale in the same order: diaphragm — chest — clavicles.Try to exhale as best as you can, get rid of the old stagnant air. Especially when you do asanas or meditation, try to exhale as fully as possible.

      When during the day you pay attention to how you breathe and perform several respiratory cycles of full yogic breathing, then gradually the body gets used to it. Over time, you automatically begin to breathe correctly, without focusing on it.
    1. Before each meditation, perform 4-10 cycles of deep yogic breathing (inhalation and exhalation). Feel how the body relaxes in this process, and then breathe normally.

    2. Pay attention to how you breathe throughout the day. And periodically perform two or three full deep breathing cycles.

    3. During conflicts, pay attention to breathing, do two or three deep breathing cycles, and you will find that the creative functions of the mind are activated and new solutions are found.

    4. If you have insomnia - the same thing, ventilate your lungs.

    5. Practice diligently everything that you have learned up to now.
