Why use this deep breathing app?
Breathing is one of the most basic necessities of human life, so it’s easy to think we all have mastered it since birth, right? Well, yes, but not entirely. Different deep breathing techniques have all sorts of health benefits, from reducing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, increasing cardiovascular health, boosting stamina, and more! In this app, we have multiple breathing exercises for various purposes.
Here is a list of each deep breathing exercise offered, as well as an explanation of their benefits and why you might want to use the different deep breathing apps:
1. 7/11 Breathing: This is a general deep breathing exercise intended to allow oneself to regain composure and focus in nearly any situation. In this exercise, you will inhale deeply for 7 seconds, and exhale for 11.
USE THIS DEEP BREATHING TECHINQUE IF YOU WANT: focus, stress relief.
2. Pursed Lip Breathing: This will allow you to slow down and control the pace of your breathing by applying extra effort to each breath. By pursing your lips when exhaling, it slows your exhale, which can help in cases of hyperventilating and short breaths.
USE THIS DEEP BREATHING TECHINQUE IF YOU WANT: to counteract hyperventilation, steady breathing, relaxation.
3. Coherent Breathing: Coherent breathing is a tool to manage heart rate variability (HRV). If you feel your heart racing or beating irregularly, especially due to stress or anxiety, this is a good tool to get it back to normal. For this exercise, breathe in so long as the indicator says “Inhale” (for a length of 5 seconds) and breathe out when it says “Exhale” (for a length of 5 seconds).
USE THIS DEEP BREATHING TECHINQUE IF YOU WANT: to manage a pounding heartbeat, reduce your anxiety, improve your focus, improve your mood.
