It all comes back to your breath
It’s amazing how integral your breath is to your wellbeing. I find it amazing how our breath is both consciously and subconsciously controlled.
If you start to feel stressed, it’s not uncommon for it to show in your breath. Before you know it, your breathing becomes shallow, and it can be hard to get in what feels like enough air.
As always, prevention is better than cure. Try to keep your stress levels as minimal as possible with things like regular exercise, healthy eating, meditation, yoga, or not taking on too much responsibility.
However, sometimes it the stress can’t be helped. In those times, sit to the side for a while, and consciously focus on getting your breath in order. That should be always be your first port of call.
I hope this helps.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
