Cardiovascular disease is an epidemic in our society. Poor diet, reduced physical activity, poor fat metabolism, and other factors can affect the health of our heart. But did you know that breathing can also affect the health of your heart? Our heart’s greatest expressions are of love and joy and also where we feel our deepest sorrows. To house such great spirit one needs good blood flow. One way to increase this is through deep breathing exercises, meditation, and massage. Relax your belly and your diaphragm and make a point to take several conscious deep breaths through each day this week!
