Let’s look at how we breathe first. Generally when we get stressed, we breathe faster and often through the mouth, we pant, our breath comes from the upper chest, our breathing becomes more laboured and noticeable. In other words, we breathe more. Our breathing becomes more intense. Oftentimes when I’m working with people who are stressed or who have anxiety or depression, I ask them “have you ever taken a deep breath to help with stress?”, and the vast majority say “yes, I have taken a deep breath”. When I ask them to show me the deep breath that they take, they show me this big breath, often through the mouth, taking a large breath of fresh air into the lungs. At this point I say “that’s entirely the wrong thing to do”.
The whole concept of taking a deep breath is endemic in the Western world and as such, many people are confused when I say this to them. How is it that everybody got it so wrong?
Let’s look at how human beings survive. We can survive without food for weeks; we can survive without water for days; but we can only survive without air for just a few minutes, and if the quantity and quality of food is important and the quantity and quality of water is important, surely then not only is the quality of air important, but also the quantity.
How much should we breathe?
With breathing, the rule is, less is more.
In other words, our breathing should be invisible, we shouldn’t see it, we shouldn’t hear it, it should be very light.
When we get stressed, our breathing gets faster, it becomes more noticeable, it becomes more intense, it becomes erratic and irregular; it’s like a big sigh. If you take a deep breath to try and relax when you are stressed, all you’re doing is intensifying your already stressed breathing. You’re making your breathing faster by taking a bigger breath of fresh air into the lungs. Breathing through the nose
