Pursed Lip Breathing Technique

When we feel drained of energy, one of the first wellness techniques we might try is to take a deep breath. While we know that breathing in healthy ways is key to our well-being, are we intentionally using a breathing technique that will help us re-energize?

The Pursed Lip Breathing technique is designed to do just that. We breathe in through the nose for two seconds and then breathe out strongly through pursed lips like we’re blowing out a candle for four seconds. 

It works by helping completely clear our lungs of carbon dioxide out so that we can fill them up with oxygen more effectively. Whether you’re climbing a mountain or are about to give a presentation, the Pursed Lip Breathing technique allows you to get ready to take on the day.
