Focusing on your breath can be a significant part of meditation. But why? What does it matter, and w
Everyone else is saying this but I just subbed because this message needs
to be more popular and you do a good job representing it :)
I’m going to plug your page on reddit.
I would’ve liked links that backup your claims about the physiological
mechanisms that make deep breath calming.
Hi. I’ve just discovered your channel and am finding it really helpful and
I enjoy the lighthearted approach. However, I much prefer your videos when
you are not constantly moving between cuts so that we can see your lovely
eyes the whole time 😉 jk jk but it is really distracting sometimes and
hard to focus when you are moving constantly! Keep up the good work
This is the second time I just happened to stumble over one of your really
great videos in a few days. You’re awesome, thank you for the clear and
holy crap, how do you have so few subscribers with such good content???
Good points. I’ve been meditating for two months now; to do my meditating,
I’ve been focused on my breathing (or, at least, doing my best). This has
been helping me by NOT letting my mind wander off on depressive or
anxiety-causing tangents. (Mindfulness is also on my list of techniques to
practice to help eliminate depression /anxiety… after all, how can I be
depressed if I’m focused on what I’m doing?)
Now, though, I’m looking into the benefits of different ways to meditate
and what can be accompanied. I’ll take a look through your videos (and
subscribe) to possibly achieve my goal. I’d like a meditation style that
boosts my energy level or helps with socialability.
I feel like I’m asking for some kind of pill, but, I’ve been thinking that
meditation is only one letter off from medication, for good reason.
I came here via a Reddit post. I just wanted to say that your video was
clear and to the point and exactly the answer people look for when asking
this question. I’ve heard many different answers but this has been
probably the clearest.
wow, nice. Subscribed.
For those (like Cedric) looking for more information on the effects of deep
breathing on vagus nerve stimulation and stress reduction, here are a few
articles that may help:
ACADEMIC JOURNAL: “Sudarshan Kriya Yogic Breathing in the Treatment of
Stress, Anxiety, and Depression: Part I—Neurophysiologic Model”:
ACADEMIC JOURNAL: “Respiratory Effects on Experimental Heat Pain and
NEWS ARTICLE: “Wall Street Journal – Breathing for Your Better Health”:
NEWS ARTICLE: “Simple Trick to Relieve Stress: Vagus Nerve Stimulation”:
I know not everyone can buy academic journals or is as familiar with
assessing research so I also included periodicals and website options,
though the academic research is consistent.
I really enjoyed to hear only the topic-related information, not the
gallons of water as it usually happens 😀 Short and concrete. Thanks.
However, could you please make subtitles for your videos? As English is not
my native language, it’s pretty difficult to hear everything clearly ;(
Subscribed, good stuff. Looking forward to more videos.
I’ve been meditating for 5 years, and I teach English in a foreign
country… is that enough to get your number?
Could you create a video on dealing with numbness in legs while meditating
or other painful sensations? Another great video, btw.
