A Balanced Approach to Wellness

Breathe

–    Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.
The rhythm of breathing.
–    Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.
The motivator of healing.

Releasing with the exhale.
Circulating with the inhale.
–    Body well.
–     Health urged.

Rhythmic breathing is natural. Inhalations and exhalations of equal length are usual when the body is at rest. When the body is in motion, the rhythm changes, but the lengths of the inhalations and exhalations remain relatively equal.

Rhythmic breathing of unequal lengths can be used for developing greater breathing capacity and healing. In general, when the exhalations are longer than the inhalations, healing is encouraged, if this rhythmic breathing is for an extended period of time. For example, inhalations to a count of six and exhalations to a count of eight, when rhythmically done for at least 15 minutes, start various balancing mechanisms.

Each person has a capacity for uneven rhythmic breathing depending on physical condition, age, breathing habits, and current sleep situation (slept enough or sleep deprived).

Daily uneven rhythmic breathing can be a tool for balance and well-being.

  1. I just finished doing 15 minutes of uneven rhythmic breathing while petting my dog who was sitting on my lap. Even more healing!
