SELF LOVE: 2 Breathing excercises

➡️ Lion’s breath (Lion’s Pose or simhasana in Sanskrit)
Lion’s breath is an energizing yoga breathing practice that is said to relieve tension in your chest and face.
:::
To do this:
🔸️Come into a comfortable seated position
🔸️Press your palms against your knees with your fingers spread wide
🔸️Inhale deeply through your nose and open your eyes wide
🔸️At the same time, open your mouth wide and stick out your tongue, bringing the tip down toward your chin
🔸️Contract the muscles at the front of your throat as you exhale out through your mouth by making a long “ha” sound
🔸️You can turn your gaze to look at the space between your eyebrows or the tip of your nose
🔸️Do this breath 2 to 3 times
:::
➡️ Humming bee breath (bhramari)
The unique sensation of this yoga breathing practice helps to create instant calm and is especially soothing around your forehead. Some people use humming bee breath to relieve frustration, anxiety, and anger. Of course, you’ll want to practice it in a place where you are free to make a humming sound.

To do this:
🔸️ Choose a comfortable seated position
🔸️ Close your eyes and relax your face
🔸️ Place your first fingers on the tragus cartilage that partially covers your ear canal
🔸️ Inhale, and as you exhale gently press your fingers into the cartilage
🔸️ Keeping your mouth closed, make a loud humming sound

Continue for as long as is comfortable.

Plenty celebrities or people of business who’ve reached their goals revealed their secrets that they wake up very early (some of them at 4-5 a.m.) and they always start their day in the same way 😊 – they meditate 🧘🏼‍♀️, they write in their journals ✒, they eat something healthy 🥑, set their affirmations etc. 🤗

Endorphins

What do you know about endophin, famous hormone of happiness?
😊😊😊
Endorphins are chemicals produced naturally by the nervous system to cope with pain or stress. They are often called “feel-good” chemicals because they can act as a pain reliever and happiness booster.
The well-known “runner’s high” that is felt after lengthy, vigorous exercise is due to an increase in endorphin levels.
The level of endorphins in the human body varies from person to person. People who have lower levels may be more likely to have depression or fibromyalgia, but more research is needed in this area.
😊😊😊
How to get your body to produce more endorphins?
Here are couple ways to boost the production:
🔸️Regular exercise 💪
🔸️Giving (Volunteering, donating, and helping others may also make a person feel good) 🤝
🔸️Yoga and meditation 🧘🏼‍♀️
🔸️Spicy foods 🌶
🔸️Dark chocolate 🍫
🔸️Laughing 😂
