'20 Ways To Breathe Away Stress, Anxiety and Fatigue'
'As natural as breathing' is a phrase we often use when something appears effortless and easy. Breath is a life-giving physical function, and most of the time it is unconscious. When we get upset or worried, however, we often start breathing in the 'wrong' way, and this can actually create symptoms like dizziness, anxiety and stress.
Fortunately, we all have the ability to consciously alter our breathing patterns for the better. 'The Breath Book' describes how becoming aware of your breathing can profoundly improve your physical and psychological well-being. It teaches you to use breath as your most important weapon - one that is with you wherever you are - in the battle against stress.
Suitable for everyone, whatever you age or state of health, this illustrated book gives clear, simple instructions to show how breathing can help you to:
*cope with stressful feelings including fatigue, anger, anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain
*improve the functioning of your lungs, particularly if you suffer from asthma, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis
*prepare for and manage difficult sensations during childbirth
*promote health, healing, self-confidence and poise, and a sense of control over your life
