    Most of us are in the habit of shallow breathing from the upper lungs which increases levels of stress hormones and increases pain.

While deep breathing we are helping every cell in our bodies to function properly.

Here's how you do the deep breathing:

Sit comfortably in a chair, both feet flat on the floor. Close your mouth and inhale deeply through your nose. Feel your stomach and chest rise as you inhale.

Hold your breath for as long as you comfortably can. Then exhale and blow out all the air you can, pulling in your stomach, and hold that as long as is comfortable.

Repeat this deep breathing for at least 15 minutes a day.

You can do this while watching tv or even driving. You can also incorporate it with your meditation.

Deep breathing will lessen your pain for several hours afterwards. It helps you to relax and fall asleep at night too.
