Energy is crucial in this sleep-deprived, overstretched, high-velocity existence. How do we reload our batteries when there’s a ceaseless drain on our resources?
In some practices of medicine, energy is known as “qi” (pronounced “chi”), and among the most crucial ways we establish qi is by breathing deeply. Tension, miserable posture, a plump waist, and habit are a few of the reasons why our breath doesn’t pull through to the bottom of our lungs. Diaphragmatic breathing, a.k.a. belly breathing is an easy way we may increase our qi vigor and better our stamina.
