THE SCIENCE OF BREATHING
Breathing correctly means supplying your body with sufficient oxygen and replenishing the brain and other vital organs with essential nutrients. Your cardiopulmonary system plays a major role in moving these nutrients around—which means it’s the road transporting all the toxins in our systems, too. Breathing, in other words, can help you control the traffic, keeping the good stuff moving while clearing the non-essential.
You take about 20,000 breaths a day. The average human respiratory rate is 30 to 60 breaths per minute at birth, decreasing to 12 to 20 breaths per minute as adults. Its significant change.
But as you get older, the way you breathe changes. Especially when you’re stressed or alarmed, your bodies operate on your more primitive (fight, flight, or freeze) instincts. You take short, fast breaths (adrenaline kicks in) to prepare for danger.
But prolonged periods of stress mean you constantly breathe like this: only ever using the top third of your lungs. It’s the bottom third of your lungs, however, that supply two-thirds of your breathing capacity. So, shallow, thoracic breaths mean you aren’t getting what your body need to function at optimal level. As a result, your cognitive abilities get sluggish, you have trouble staying alert and connecting with others, and just dull.
Breathing correctly means supplying your body with adequate oxygen and replenishing the brain and other vital organs. This way you navigate life with more vigour, vitality and verve @ WORK.
