As soon as we are born, we breathe in air. No matter how naturally it came to us, we never realized that just because we do something well doesn’t mean it cant be improved. Any woman has gone through labor can tell you there is a right and wrong way to breathe. Especially if your anything like me- the dreaded holding of the breathe when things are painful.
If I have learned anything during my yogi journey, it is that learning to breathe correctly is really half the battle. If I’m honest I still struggle with it sometimes. Now that I have learned it though I know many other moms would not only benefit from it, but they would realize that breathing correctly is a form a self care. Something every mother I know needs to do more of. Self care is as diverse as women in general but breathing is really part of the basics.
Our quality of breathing is being constricted by face masks. If you knew how to breathe before, like me you’re struggling now.
Our quality of breathing is not only being constricted, but changing by the deadly face masks. People were in all sorts of hurry before to get into the store and out but nothing compared to now. We have all seen those Facebook posts about taking off a mask is the new taking off a bra. Truer words haven’t been spoken. Now more than ever is learning how to re-breathe been more important. We need the relaxation but more importantly the benefits.
I understand yoga may not be your thing. I understand meditiation may not be your thing. But ask yourself is breathing?
And if so shouldn’t you pay it a decent amount of love and attention?
