Breath of Life

We've all heard about different methods for stress reduction such as yoga or meditation.  Why is it that these practices reduce stress and increase vitality?

Life requires breath.  When we're stressed we tend to hold our breath or breathe very quickly and shallowly.  This increases our stress and causes 'mental chaos' so to speak.

If you feel yourself becoming stressed, try taking a few deep and slow breaths that expand the ribcage and move your belly too.  This will help calm you down, increase your mental clarity and help you maintain a healthier and happier life.
