How and why breathe ‘through’ the belly? The most optimal breathing method is certainly slow and deep breaths through the ‘abdominal’ breathing, as practiced, for example, by operatic singers. With such breathing in the body, we will supply the optimum amounts of oxygen that we need for the best performance of the body. In principle, such breathing entails a knee that drops down to the abdominal organs and thus “absorbs” the air into the deeper parts of the lung while the abdominal wall moves outwardly. For a better self-control it is good to lie on a flat surface, put the book on the belly and breathe so that every breath and breath draws up or down with the abdominal wall level.

We are aware that without oxygen we could not live for a few minutes, but have you ever wondered whether you are breathing properly. Many people have a habit of breathing superficially, so they deny it to abundant amounts of oxygen that has a very positive effect on our entire body and good mood.

Many people are breathing fully automated, so they do not even think about how they breathe and what they breathe in? However, it is a sign that many of us often have distractions in memory, reasoning, difficult thinking, and showing signs of impatience and nervousness. Such signs do not have to be a consequence of stress, but improper breathing. And breathing starts all right, right? It is much healthier and more efficient to breathe through the nose. The nasal mucosa moisturizes, heats and purifies the air we breathe, and when exhaling a part of the heat and moisture is retained in the nostrils and facilitates their role at the next breath.

With warm days usually comes a better mood, and it has not been accidentally proved by scientists who have discovered that exposure to sunlight releases a hormone of happiness – serotonin.

Additionally, by exposing the skin to sunlight, the body produces Vitamin D, responsible for calcium absorption, bone health, heart and overall good functioning of the body. Studies show that every seventh person in the world suffers from lack of vitamin D and, in addition to inadequate nutrition, is one of the major causes of vitamin D deficiency and concern for skin cancer, which is why we are less exposed to sunlight. It is good news that only 10 to 15 minutes in the sun, from 13 to 15 o’clock, is enough to initiate the process of synthesis of sun vitamin. In addition to exposure to sunlight, where vitamin D is synthesized in the body, this essential vitamin is also found in food that is a natural source of vitamin D, and can also be introduced into diet and vitamin supplements. Daily diet monitoring and dietary intake of Vitamin D rich foods is particularly important for risk groups such as pregnant women, elderly people, people wearing protective clothing, or less exposed to sunlight.
