How is breathing important

Breathing exercise for more vitality

With the following exercises you can consciously direct the life force into the body, which can have a very beneficial effect on weak connective tissue or weakened physical organs.

To relieve pain in the arm or leg, to strengthen limbs, or to strengthen slack muscles, do the following on that part of the body:

  1. Contract the muscle (or muscles) gently and with deep concentration as you exhale, counting to 20.
  2. Relax your muscles and breathe in.

Repeat this exercise six times in the morning or at any other time of the day. Weak calves and thighs can be strengthened by practicing this technique.

Breathing exercise for headache

  1. Press one palm against the back of your head and the other lightly against your forehead.
  2. Inhale and hold your breath as, with deep attention, gently contract the muscles at the top of your head as if to frown.
  3. Exhale as you relax your muscles.

Repeat this four to six times.

Breathing exercise to clear your head

  1. Exhale without inhaling again.
  2. Slightly tense the muscles of the head. Raise your eyebrows, frown, wrinkle your nose, bite your teeth and let your mouth grow wide by pulling the corners of your mouth to one side. At full concentration, keep muscles tense as you count to 15.
  3. Now breathe in again and relax the muscles.

Repeat this six times.

Breathing exercise for nerves like wire ropes

  1. Inhale and hold your breath.
  2. Tense the whole body, i.e. all muscles at the same time.
  3. Hold the tension as you count to 20 and focus deeply on your whole body.
  4. Exhale and relax.

Repeat this three times. Do the exercise anytime you feel weak or nervous.

Breathing exercise for sharp eyes

  2. Close your eyes and pull the eyelids and brows together slightly.
  3. Hold your eyes in this tension while you focus deeply, counting to 20 as you go.
