In this video from motivationaldoc shared in December 2015, Dr. Alan Mandell explains that most people are not breathing correctly. Changing the way we breathe can help to strengthen the diaphragm, allowing us to breathe deeper and feel better.
Dr. Mandell explains that after the age of 35, the signal from the brain to the diaphragm lessens, making the diaphragm less efficient. Therefore, the amount of oxygen the lungs take in is reduced as we get older.
This simple belly breathing exercise aims to help us strengthen the diaphragm and lungs, allowing us to breathe deeper and take in more oxygen. The more oxygen we take in, the more oxygen can be distributed around the body and into our cells.
