HOW TO BREATHE?
With proper breathing you can influence your heartbeats and your autonomic nervous system.
If you excercise with slow abtominal breathing, you activate and strengthen your recovery nerve.
As you inhale, your heart beats faster and as you exhale, your heart slows down. It can be an advantage if the exhalation is slightly longer than the inhalation.
When we are under stress, we tend to breathe shallowly over our chest. Then, the inhaled air is not completely exhaled. The non-exhaled part quickly arrives in our blood stream and makes the blood sour. The pH value of the blood drops. Besides other effects low pH values can trigger kidney and heart diseases.
