We all know how good is the feeling after taking a deep breath,but why is it so easy to forget to breathe properly except when we exercise?
Most people breathe in a completely wrong way without even knowing it, and they end up using only one third of the total lung capacity.
Here are 5 sings that will show you that you are not breathing properly
1.You are taking more breaths in a short period of time – the body instinctively tries to compensate the lack of oxygen
2.You often yawn – it indicates that you are taking shallow breathes and have a lack of oxygen in the body.
3.While sleeping you rub your teeth- this means you are suffering from chronic stress and irregular breathing.
4.Tension in the neck and shoulders – shallow breathing is the main problem for the pain in the neck and the shoulders.
5.You are always tired – if the body lacks oxygen, there is a lack of energy and chronic fatigue.
