Your Breath Is Your Superpower!!

It really IS!!!

Your breath can alter mood, help you sleep better, lower heart rate and blood pressure as well as open up the lungs and push all those totally delicious happy hormones and coping chemicals up from the gut!

And it is free!! As well as being a handy tool to keep in your self-regulation / anxiety boxes. When our diaphragms are open, we breathe much deeper, this preventing panic or anxiety attacks. It also means we are much less likely to reverse breathe which is what people who are under long term trauma or stress can do. By adjusting the breath, we can boost mood, productivity, drive and focus as well as empowering ourselves as we push that utterly gorgeous and all-important serotonin and dopamine up from the gut. Blood and oxygen also zoom up to the brain, bringing clarity and concentration.

We can also use our breath to lower our energy, ground ourselves, prepare for sleep and to calm down our busy bodies and brains! You can have great fun with younger kids or with those who find it difficult to concentrate for long periods of time by putting the different breaths into stories, games, treasure hunts or lucky dips.

Have a wonderful week everyone, take care of each other, Love Giuliana xx
