NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF POOR BREATHING. 

  1. WE DON’T UTILISE THE OXYGEN WE BREATH IN IF WE OVER BREATH
  2. WE DON’T THINK CLEARLY (ANXIOUS)
  3. WE REACT EMOTIONALLY (poor decision making, behaviour in class, at home, on the field)
  4. OUR SLEEP IS AFFECTED ( sleep is our recovery)
  5. An athlete or student can only perform at their optimal level when the breathing is optimal.)
  6. OUR MOVEMENT IS AFFECTED as we don’t engage our diaphragm 

What is the diaphragm. (Stabilise, breathing)

Tongue placement:-  Facial and cranial development is affected when tongue placement is incorrect due to incorrect breathing. 

Dehydrated :- increase of upwards of 47% due to chronic mouth breathing ( think performance and recovery)

Nasal breathing sanitizes the air we breath, calms the nervous system, helps you think clearer, sleep better, be healthier and happier! This will make us perform better!

Simple steps to enhance breathing.

  1. 20 nasal breaths before bed time, can put book on tummy and watch rise and fall slowly.
  2. 20 belly breaths upon waking 
  3. Picture the belly and ribs expanding upon inhalation and coming back in upon exhalation
  4. Mouth taping with sleep and play activities
