Breathing

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, is anyone else very aware of their breathing? Like I can't just relax I am constantly trying to get a deep breath and when I cant get one I start to panic. I do deep breathing and things like that but I constantly feel like I can't get a good enough breath. If for a little while I'm distracted then I seem to breath fine, its as soon as I remember that I start feeling like I can't sad I have asthma to so I get worried that it's that or something worse. The doctor feels my asthma is fine and.checked my chest etc..anyone relate? Thank you xxx

    yes! after eating or when I'm tired, I'm often very aware of my breathing.

    I almost lost it in a movie theatre today because i was thinking about it so much.

    What have you tried to stop it?

    Yes I can relate to this leanne it's awful. I panic when I feel I can't get a deep breath,;then the more I try the worse it is. I even try yawning. But what happens is we start to over breath and then panic and it's all a vicious circle. Take care x

    When you breathe in your stomach should expand. When you exhale your stomach should flatten. Im guessing your using your chest not your stomach. Switching this breathing at first makes you feel strange but you will quickly adjust to it and its better for you.

      Thank you Lisa. I have been trying to do this kind of breathing recently as I read about it online, like you say it is strange and I tend to forget especially when I panic. I just want to go back to when it just came naturally and I didn't even think about it!! Xxxx

      Most deep breathing I have done and studied.  Is you want to place on hand on your belly when deep breathing. When you take deep inhales through your nose, you should feel your belly and hand rise! Hope this helps.

      A wish we all have love. In the interim when you find time thru the day take two minutes and practice the correct way to breathe. The strange feeling eill wear off as your body gets adjusted to more oxygen.
