Lose Weight By Breathing Properly

When I read about this – that one can actually lose weight with proper breathing exercises, I did not really see the connection.

Good that I continued reading on, now I can truly say “Oh I see! There’s the connection!”

Deep breathing regularly is very important because fat cannot burn without enough oxygen.

Here’s a short step by step guide on how to properly perform breathing exercises.

To begin, sit on a mat or the floor with your legs crossed comfortably, the  palms of your hands placed on your knees.

  • Close your eyes;
  • Breathe in through the nose, slowly to the count of 3. Exhale through the mouth, again slowly, to the count of 3;
  • Inhale through the nose slowly to the count of 5. Exhale slowly through the mouth to the count of 5;
  • Inhale through the nose slowly to the count of 10. Exhale slowly through the mouth to the count of 10;
  • Repeat the breathing process increasing the count by 3 or 5 each time until you eventually reach 20. Continue to train your lungs until you can reach 30. Never rush the counting, be patient.
  • For each session, at the longest count you can accomplish, repeat that breathing count 5 times.

Finally, as you open your eyes, take one deep breath and then release it slowly.

Rise very slowly. Be extra careful not to rise too quickly because if you do, there is a big chance you will pass out.
