A wellbeing guide to the art of conscious breathing techniques: boost energy, combat stress and improve heart health.
Breathing is something we all know how to do. And yet, the majority of teenagers and adults let go of their natural ability to breathe fully. We are conditioned from an early age to control our feelings and emotions, and as a result our muscles tighten and our breathing patterns become restricted. The impact on our mental and physical wellbeing is huge.
By learning how to consciously connect to our breath and encourage its natural rhythms, we can harmonise the body and mind, live life fully, find emotional freedom and feel empowered. AND BREATHE teaches readers how to harness the power of conscious, connected breathing, a technique which helps to eliminate stress, fatigue and negative emotions such as anger, frustration and depression, leaving readers feel calm yet energised, focused yet relaxed. It is a practical guide to letting go of the unwanted patterns of emotions, blockages and tension which hold us back and includes simple to follow exercises, tips, case studies, interviews and testimonials.
