Why better breathing matters

Every system in the body, from cognition to digestion, relies on oxygen. And studies show that breathing properly can improve your life in a number of ways. Breathing better can help you sleep better, digest food more efficiently, improve your body’s immune response, and reduce stress levels.

If you’re breathing incorrectly or inefficiently, it can contribute to deteriorating lung function, and this can lead to a whole host of health issues like:
