Would you like to do something interesting?

Place one hand on your abdomen below your belly button and the other hand on your chest right below your collarbones.

Take a deep breath in, and let it out. Notice which hand(s) moved.

When the breathing process is working optimally, the hand on the abdomen should move a lot, expanding like a balloon.

Also, exhaling should last longer than inhaling.

Was this happening for you? If not, don’t worry, most of us aren’t walking around regularly breathing this deeply.
