Deep breath in for a longer life
HANDS up who wants to know the secret to a long healthy life?
It’s simple: “keep breathing as long as you can”.
Breathing and the Nervous System:
There is a huge body (excuse the pun) of research that examines the strong relationship between effective breathing, vitality and longevity. That’s it; careless breathing can result in a significant shortening of the lifespan.
How? Why? Because vital capacity is the most accurate long term predictive marker of aging that we posses. And what is vital capacity? Vital capacity is the maximum amount of air a person can expel from their lungs after they have taken their biggest ever breath.
Conscious control over death:
Most ordinary folk have no intention of trying to get control over the involuntary nervous system. However this is not the case for yogis. These people spend their entire lives dedicated to mastering a conscious death.
It is believed by using Pranayama (breathing) a man can control the involuntary nervous system and stop the natural decay of the body
