Breathing is present in many oriental disciplines. Whether martial arts, yoga, practices such as Tai Chi, transcendental meditation, or ayurvedic medicine, breathing is a fundamental tool. If you can control your breathing, you can control your mind, and of course your body.
While for anyone related to Eastern culture, breathing is an essential point in the welfare agenda, in Western society we need to prove it.
Scientists in the United States conducted an experiment with patients who were about to undergo surgery.
They gave them instructions to see if their brain activity would change according to the rhythm of the breath. Indeed it changed. And a lot!
Properly applied, breathing techniques can activate certain areas of the brain, improving our emotional control.
Conscious breathing enhances the connectivity between certain parts of our brain, allowing access to internal processes that are normally inaccessible.
This would allow us, for example, to control emotions, decide to stay awake despite being tired or suppress certain thoughts.
