  34. 34. Pranayama and its benefits<br />Physically, Pranayama appears to be a systematic exercise of respiration, which makes the lungs stronger, improves blood circulation, makes the man healthier and bestows upon him the boon of a long life. <br />Pranayama does not mean just breathing in, keeping the breathed air in and exhaling it. It also means establishing control on the entire breathing process, and maintaining mental equilibrium, and concentration of mind.<br />Most of the people do not have the habit of breathing deeply with the result that only one-fourth part of the lungs is brought into action and 75 percent remains idle.<br />The inefficient functioning of the lungs affects the process of blood purification. It is for this reason that the importance of Pranayama has come to be recognised, for a healthy long life.<br />Several diseases can be averted by regular practice of Pranayama. Mental disturbances like excitement, anxiety, fear, anger, and disappointment can be calmed down by regular practice of Pranayama.<br />Another benefit of Pranayama is that by its regular practice, habit of deep breathing is developed which results in several health benefits. <br />

DEEP BREATHING FOR STRESS RELIEF<br />Sit comfortably with your back straight.Put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach.<br />Breathe in through nose. the hand on your stomach should rise .the hand on your chest should move very little.<br />Continue to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try to inhale enough so that your lower abdomen rises and falls.Count slowly as you exhale. <br />
