STOP smoking with NATURA

Want STOP smoking? Learn how to breathe. Ok, so you already know how to breathe or you wouldn't be alive. But breathing can be much more than just an essential survival component in your life. Using some simple breathing techniques can be a valuable relaxation tool, as well as enhance your health in general.Do you know why you should breathe through your nose? Taking in air through your nasal passages tells your body to be in a “rest and restore” mode. Breathing through your mouth communicates “fight or flight”. Which state do you think is more relaxing? (Yeah, I’d go with the nose, too!) Breathing through your nose actually lets you take in more oxygen. Also, your nasal passages are much, much better at filtering the air you breathe than your mouth and throat are.While at first it may seem silly to “practice” breathing, it’s really about learning to enhance your respiration. It’s no coincidence that meditation and yoga, known for their stress-relieving benefits, focus so much on breathing. There are even specific breath techniques such as “Breath of Fire” in Kundalini Yoga, with the goal of releasing anxiety, eliminating toxins, and reducing cravings. Sit back, breathe, and relax and forget smoking
