Why you need to be doing Breathwork

Breathing is a natural process that most of us take for granted, but there are so many benefits to breathing that we should be doing more often. Breathwork is one method of breathing that can be done anywhere and anytime. The benefits include:


Breathwork is a powerful practice that helps you tap into the power of your breath.

Breathwork is a powerful practice that helps you tap into the power of your breath.

The power of your breath is something that we often take for granted, but it's something that we do without thinking and often without even noticing it. Breathwork can help you to bring awareness to this essential part of being human--and it has a lot of benefits!


It has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, which are involved in stress and inflammation.

When you're stressed, your body releases cortisol. This hormone is released when you're under stress or emotional distress and also during exercise. Cortisol helps to regulate blood sugar levels and can be useful in small doses as it increases energy production and provides an anti-inflammatory effect. But too much of it can cause problems for your body: over time, high levels of cortisol can lead to weight gain because they promote fat storage (especially around the belly), increase cravings for carbs and sugars, cause insulin resistance (which leads to diabetes) and suppress thyroid function, making it difficult for your body to burn fat effectively (1).

Cortisol also disrupts other hormones involved in mood control like serotonin - which means that when you're stressed out all day long from work/school/social situations etc., then it's very likely that these issues will spill over into other areas of life such as relationships with friends/family members


It reduces anxiety, which can make it easier for you to get through the day.

Breathwork can help you get in touch with your body and relax. By learning to breathe deeply and slowly, you'll feel more relaxed and calm. This can be especially useful if you have trouble sleeping or have anxiety issues that make it difficult for you to function during the day.


When we are stressed out or anxious, our breathing becomes shallow and rapid--a condition known as hyperventilation syndrome (HVS). Hyperventilation causes blood levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) to drop below normal levels because CO2 is being expelled too quickly through the lungs; this lack of CO2 affects many functions throughout our bodies including heart rate variability (HRV), brain function/awareness levels etc...


It improves sleep quality and reduces insomnia.

Breathwork can help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer. It will also make you feel more rested in the morning, because it helps to regulate your body's natural sleep rhythms.

Breathwork is an excellent way to reduce insomnia and improve the quality of your sleep overall.


It can help you lose weight or stay at a healthy weight.

Breathing can also be used to help you lose weight or stay at a healthy weight. When we're stressed, the body reacts by releasing the hormone cortisol. This hormone tells the body to store fat and burn muscle tissue instead of using it for energy. As a result, we may feel tired and run down even though we're eating right and exercising regularly--which can cause us to eat more than usual in order to compensate for this lack of energy (and thus gain weight).


However, breathwork has been shown in studies on animals as well as humans that it reduces cortisol levels by up to 50%. If you do regular breathwork sessions throughout the day when you feel stressed out about something specific (like work deadlines), then over time those sessions will add up until eventually they become part of your lifestyle: breathing becomes second nature!


It helps you de-stress, which means that it's great for people who have a stressful job or lifestyle.

One of the biggest benefits of breathwork is that it can help you feel more relaxed, calm and focused. If you have a stressful job or lifestyle, this can greatly improve your quality of life. If you're feeling stressed out because of work or other factors in your life, there are many ways to reduce those negative emotions and feel better about yourself. Breathwork is one of those methods because it works quickly to give you results that last long after the session ends!


Finally, it has been shown to improve overall mood and well-being.

Breathwork is a powerful tool for getting in touch with your emotions, resolving emotional issues and improving overall mood. Here are some of the benefits:

  • It can help you get in touch with your feelings. Breathwork allows you to focus on individual parts of your body, which helps break down barriers between your mind and body. By allowing yourself time to reflect on these areas of the body, you'll be able to identify where there is pain or discomfort so that it can be addressed. This may also lead one into an emotional state where they feel more connected with others around them; this connection helps reduce stress levels too!

  • It can make us feel more relaxed as well as helping us sleep better at night by reducing cortisol levels (which cause anxiety).

Breathing is a natural part of life that we don't often think about but should be paying attention to more than we do!

You breathe all day, every day. You might be doing it right now as you read this article. But how often do you really think about your breath?

Breathing is something we all take for granted until something goes wrong with it--maybe an asthma attack or an injury that affects our ability to breathe freely without pain. Then suddenly, our focus turns toward breathing properly again and doing whatever we can to get back into shape as quickly as possible so our lungs can function normally once more (hopefully).


In conclusion, we hope that this article has helped you understand how important it is to be mindful of your breathing. It's a natural part of life that we don't often think about but should be paying attention to more than we do! When you're feeling stressed or anxious and want an easy way out without medication, try doing some breathwork--it could make all the difference in your day.
