It is important to be able to recover from breathlessness not only for those involved in sports. In ordinary life, situations often occur when breathing is disturbed, and it is very difficult to cope with this without preliminary preparation. If you want to learn how to restore calm breathing and develop the habit of breathing evenly in any situation, you need to remember a few simple rules.
If breathing failure is caused by severe stress, it can be very difficult for a person to come to their senses and just realize what exactly is happening to him. You may feel extreme discomfort, but not understand its causes. Strong emotions cause spasmolytic vasoconstriction, which impairs blood circulation in the lungs and makes breathing difficult. In addition, a spasm of the diaphragm and chest may occur, leading to a mild attack of suffocation. Try to calm down first. Concentrate on your breathing, making it deep and even. Control your breaths by making them lighter. Exhales, however, try to carry out powerful and strong.
Master belly breathing. This type of breathing is used in modern fitness and yoga. As you inhale, inflate your stomach as wide as possible, and as you exhale, pull it in strongly. Such breathing contributes not only to the restoration of the correct functioning of the lungs and diaphragm, but also stabilizes the pressure and even helps to cope with excess weight. As soon as you feel the slightest stress, start breathing through your belly and diaphragm. You will immediately feel that the tension is going away.
There is one simple trick - breathing into folded palms. You've probably seen how characters in foreign films breathe into a paper bag - this also helps. Of course, in our country such a package is not very easy to find, so try to master breathing in the palm of your hand. Place the palms of your hands together and exhale deeply into them. Such an exercise, despite its simplicity, helps to restore breathing very quickly under stress.
