In this video, I bust two myths about deep breathing that get in the way of what should be a natural, organic process: 1. A deep breath is a big breath and 2. To breathe deeply, you have to slow down or control your breathing in some way.
Deep breathing is so important for our physical, mental and vocal health. It should be easy and natural but for a lot of us it isn’t— you might feel like your breath feels habitually tight, restricted, shallow. Tight or held breathing can make it hard to feel physically comfortable, emotionally at ease and vocally strong. And these myths contribute to why it can feel difficult to breathe deeply all the time.
