Let’s regenerate by learning to breathe properly with the right awareness

Breathe well to regain energy and well-being

Breathing is a simple action that we perform automatically. The breath is always with us, from the moment of our birth and throughout our life. Inhaling and exhaling is apparently one of the simplest things in the world. Indeed, this act is not as obvious as it seems. Some physiological conditions and particular respiratory disorders (i.e. rhinitis, asthma, bronchitis, etc.) prevent us from doing it well, but it often happens that, in the daily routine, our way of breathing is much less free than we think. This happens because breathing is conditioned by our psychophysical state as well as by stress and by the environment in which we find ourselves.
The breath, gently guided, is the tool that allows access to one’s inner world, favoring the release of blocked energies. Being aware of your breathing helps you develop a different way to cope with fear, discomfort, anxiety and stress.


Mindful breathing takes us to the natural process of dissolving blocks and tensions and it helps to release the healthiest and most creative part of each individual.
By applying mindful breathing, you will achieve a deep relaxation and regain vital energy and well-being.
For example, try to observe how young children breathe, so full of energy: they inhale by inflating the belly and then the chest, using the diaphragm, and keeping the muscles of the belly, chest and shoulders relaxed, exhaling deeply and freely.
In adulthood, we tend to lose this ability and our breathing becomes disordered: breathing becomes shorter and more superficial, collecting less oxygen. But with a little technical exercise and commitment, we can correct our bad breathing habits.

In Chinese and Eastern culture

In Chinese and Eastern culture in general, the breath is identified with vital energy that is defined “vital breath” or Ki , which means “vital energy”.
Ki keeps everything in communication, guarantees contact, connection, and the movement of precious liquids in the body. The organ that manages and distributes Ki in the body is the lung.
The lung plays a fundamental role in the diffusion of the vital energy “Ki” through the breath.
Breathing is associated with emotions and can favor or limit them.

Breathing, as we have said, is an involuntary and automatic act, but it is also an act that we can endow with awareness. Awareness gives the breath the ability to connect the body and mind.

Fatigue or lack of vitality can be caused by an imbalance in the lung. A thousand years ago, the wise men of the past intuited the profound correlation between the breath and the health of the body and mind.
Today, scientific studies are supporting these wise insights, confirming that good deep breathing has a very positive effect on well-being and mitigates some of the health problems widespread in the modern world.


Find a quiet spot and sit comfortably or lie down with your hands on your stomach. Do a few inhales and exhales until the breath is more fluid.
1) count up to 4 in the inspiration phase
2) take a short break holding your breath and counting to 2
3) count up to 4 while exhaling slowly
Repeat the exercise from point 1) and do it for 10 minutes every day.

esercizio di respirazione

While performing the exercise, focus your attention on the breath: inhale through the nose, bringing the air to below the navel: you will have to feel your belly swell when you inhale and deflate when you exhale.

Performing this exercise every day or when you feel particularly confused and tired will give you the opportunity to get out of “social” time and enter a deeper dimension where you can regenerate your body and conquer your inner awareness.

This exercise calms the mind and brings peace to the heart. Happy breathing!

Happy breathing!
