How the simple act of breathing can help your digestion

Deep Breathing

I struggled with managing my stress properly and chronic digestive problems for decades.

In 2015 I reached a turning point and got severely ill and finally became aware that my poor food and lifestyle choices were contributing to my painful symptoms.

In an attempt to reduce my stress I enrolled in a tai chi class which was also great for my balance, memory, and mindful movement. Tai chi centers you and helps calm your body. I learned how to relax and slow down my breathing. Both made a huge difference and lowered my stress and improved my overall health.

I also discovered a new love for yoga and pilates. I was a runner for years and never considered yoga and pilates because I thought they wouldn't benefit my body much. I was surprised when I learned how much strength it takes to master the moves and how strong yoga and pilates can make you.
