Breath is essential to life, and most of the time, breathing is simply an automatic function. What we may not realise is that the mind, body and breath are intimately connected and can influence each other. Our breathing impacts our sleep, mood, digestion, heart, nervous system, muscles, brain, even the development of our teeth and facial structure. Learning to breathe deeply and with awareness is a powerful tool, providing immediate stress relief benefits, as well as deep lasting physiological advantages. Breathe in, breathe out, repeat!
