Breathing Technique: The way of breathing is very important as it is the key to better health, better presentation and an expansion of life. Many researches have proven that the cancer is aerobic and hence cannot thrive in high levels of oxygen. Hence the length of breath is very important as heart diseases mostly arise from short breath where the heart is not given the required oxygen thereby making it go to contraction. The high pressure is also directly related to poor breathing.
Exercise, yoga, meditation, walking in the mornings and at evenings help in improving the heart conditions which can lead to healthy breathing. Since heart is a muscle, regular exercise helps it to work properly, prevent any cholesterol from accumulating and slackening its way of working and thus avoid any sort of heart diseases from cropping up.
