From the moment we are born our brain reminds our lungs to breathe oxygen. We all know that oxygen is critical to life in humans.
Do you forget to breathe in times of stress or high-impact situations...I know I do!
Fortunately for us the body's inner wisdom has ways to protect us from ourselves!
As recently discussed in doTERRA's blog doTERRA Breathe® and the Science of Sighing, "Physiologically speaking, distinct and deep breaths are more commonly referred to as sighs. Researchers in Belgium...suggest that sighing serves as a psychophysiological "resetter" and restores homeostasis as negative emotions and experiences can compromise homeostatic balance."
I sigh. You sigh. We all sigh.
The article goes on to say, "Because sighs (which bring in twice the volume of a normal breath) can facilitate relief in times of distress, facilitate relief in times of distress, our brains strategically increase sighing while negative events or emotions are taking place.
So what could we do to increase the benefit of a breath or sigh?
Breathe in. Breathe out.
doTERRA Breathe® can help promote feelings of clear airways and easy breathing.
