Being someone who helps people learn the many ways of living and breathing, I often wonder how can we forget about something this vital, a thing that is the only companion we have had from the very moment of our inception until the moment we leave this world.
Training yourself to keep your attention on your breath has become a -To do list- task when It should be the very first thing that we should think of.
A friend of mine sent me a motivational video about a speaker talking about his realization of the most important thing in the world- breathing.
And yes, this friend of mine motivated me to write about it here and I am so grateful to Shrimanth, my friend who always encourages me to write, he tells me “ I love what you write and how you write as I was never a reader before.”
So here I am, Just thinking loud what I feel and think about it.
I know it’s too much of Gyaan and this friend of mine by the name of Aditya might have told me that- “Hey stop talking about it like people have no awareness about their breath and now you will teach them all about the same, Bla blah blah.” Hahhahaha!
Selfish me!!!! Well yes, I always think about myself. I do what makes me content and happy most of the times- and that being almost 99 percent of the times.
Yes, I am a big fan of his teachings.
Now let’s see this –
When you are happy- what changes is your breath.
When you are sad-what changes is your breath.
When you cry- what changes is your breath.
When you talk – what changes is your breath.
And even when you sleep- what changes is your breath, yet again.
So who is the ultimate companion??? What should you be taking care of?
Everybody nowadays breathes wrongly, that’s how we are conditioned. For example, when someone cries, people near them asks them not to cry. What should they do? They want to cry, but everyone asks them not to cry hence, they end up controlling their breath – because that is the only way to stop it. Then with time, it becomes a fixed thing A never-ending list of dos and don’ts.
So that person learns that if he/she breathes shallowly then, they remain in control. If they breathe perfectly and purely just like when they were born breathing, then they will become wild. It cripples them.
And as an outcome, the change in our habit of breathing changes in everything.
But why don’t we rather learn to understand our breathing pattern? Breathe properly!
Let’s breathe deep and full, let us live and experience the deepest of our emotions.
Breathe through your belly & your lungs. Take beautiful deep breaths and let your body feed on it and it’s positives. Shallow breathing is of no good. It doesn’t even fill your lungs, let alone your whole body!
Tips and Tricks for one’s lungs and body:

So all those out there, let’s start it.
If you are able to change and navigate your breath- you will be able to change most of the situations in your life. Trust me- you will see the magic happening.
This is why we, in Yoga, Pilates, Meditations etc talk about feeling your breath.
I Love you all and you encourage me to write, travel, talk, feel and in short, to be who I am and the way that I am.
