The time when people usually have problems with their respiratory system is when the season changes, during winter and fall. When they see their immune system is being challenged or compromised it may be too late as the flue or any complications to the respiratory organs, have already occurred.

To prevent this, we can prepare ourselves by focusing on our breathing thus increase our immune system effectiveness as well as lung potential. So doing respiratory exercises before the season changes is a great and easy way to be prepared to avoid viruses and flue.

Three different phases of breeding

Most people breathe high up from their lungs. What we want to do is start breathing from the belly, to do this you must stimulate your stomach with this exercise. Put your both arms onto your belly, on the diaphragm and press on your belly. Pushing your abdomen while breathing in and breathing our, with the pause of 1 to 2 seconds in between, promotes diaphragm breathing.

Next exercise a bit different. Put both of your hands with palms and index finger surrounding the rib cage on the left and right side of your ribs. Hook your hands and push the ribs as you bread in and bread out. The pushing should only give a little resistance to the breathing so don’t use too much force.

The moment when you feel your rib cage is bending, as you bread in and bread out, you should reduce the force that you are using in stimulating the lungs through the rib construction.

Upper stimulation

The third type of exercise is the upper stimulation directly above the chest area. When we breathe in, we can notice the upper chest area expand as well. With the same above mentioned technique use your hand to provide some resistance to the breathing expansion of your chest. This way we strengthen the muscles of our lungs. It is basically like exercising with a weight attached to your limbs. The moment your remove the weights your muscles do an extra effort to perform regular operations.These were the three basic types of exercises for the chest, lungs, and stomach.

Additional Exercises

Another great exercise is similar to the back of the head hands position. It’s similar except that palms of your joined hands are not on the back of your head but parallel to the grounds. So just rotate your wrists, so they are parallel to the horizon and expand your rib cage and make more room for your lungs to fill with air. Do this exercise as you bread in and bread out and stimulate your lungs to get more oxygen and breathe out more CO2.

Scientist and health specialists recommend these exercises in the morning as they naturally stimulate your body to function more effectively.

Do all the above-mentioned exercises three times a day. Once in the morning, once in the afternoon and once in the evening. This way you will get more oxygen in your body and your bloodstream providing a healthier life for yourself.
