This is breathing as described for the purpose of meditation & relaxation, not general breathing.



They're one and the same.

Is there even such thing as proper breathing? Sure anatomically speaking there is but the main thing is just to get some air into your lungs. Everyone knows how to do that luckily. Try imagine teaching a kid to breathe when it just have been born

I breathe the way I do and even happens to forget it when relaxing to much. Air in - Air out. Repeat the process.

I don't breathe properly but according to a good friend of mine with CF I have a higher than average lung-function? I try and breathe with my full lung capacity when I can remember to, but when I'm raging at my supervisor I rarely remember :P.
I usually spend a few minutes breathing properly before sleep...seems to calm me which is nice. Still sleep badly though as my bed is more like a concrete slab!

You only breathe enough to keep your current functionality working. For example: You only need small amount of oxygen for an activity such as sitting or laying down. Even less when you are sleeping. When you are moving, however, you need to inhale a lot more in order to circulate oxygen properly throughout your entire body. Your brain naturally does this without any thought.

Inhalation
1. The least understood part of breathing is inhalation. Most people take only very shallow breaths that only use the top half of their lungs, leaving stale air in the lower half that does not provide essential oxygen to the body or excrete harmful waste-products. These shallow breaths usually originate in the sinuses; they cause the abdomen to move inward and the shoulders to lift. But correct, natural breathing is precisely the opposite. Inhalation is properly the function of the diaphragm, a band of muscle beneath the lungs. When the diaphragm moves downward, the air pressure in the lungs decreases, which causes air to rush in. The ribs expand outward, but the chest remains passive.

Exhalation
2. There should also be no strain in proper exhalation. It is, after all, as simple as just relaxing. Allowing the weight of the collar bone and ribs to reduce the size of the lungs will cause the air to naturally move outward to the lower pressure outside. The diaphragm also moves upward into its original position during exhalation, further decreasing the size of the lung cavity and increasing the air pressure inside the lungs. Complete exhalation is an important part of proper breathing, but it should not be necessary to force air out to achieve this.

Learning to Breathe
3. One of the reasons why breathing and meditation are so closely associated is because learning how to breathe property requires focused attention and awareness. One of the best ways to become aware of your breathing is to lie flat on your back with your arms down at your side and your feet relaxed. Gradually become aware of the rate of your breath and the movements of your abdomen. There should be a gentle rise in your belly as you inhale, and your chest cavity should expand outward. During exhalation, the stomach should move back lower, and the ribs should contract. If necessary, put a book on your navel to help you see the motion. When practicing, breathe as deeply and slowly as possible without straining. Proper breathing should be easy.

If you observe properly, kids do not need to be taught how to breath, as they breath the right way.
As we grow older, we take shallower breaths for various reasons.

Also, the trolls here are blatantly generic and redundant.

If i find myself not having any sports in few days i usually memorize myself to breath long inhale and hold it for few seconds and slowly exhale. Repeat it at least 3 times it really makes your bloof flow better. Only people that are aware their own body system feels the results later on.

Huh? That's also what I wrote. I'm not sure what you mean dude. I wrote in context that kids (When born) know instinctly how to breathe. It was meant as joke if you've have to teach it to them...

And for the troll part. Maybe I'm the idiot but I don't get that either. Remember I'm a stupid idiot and needs to get most of it explained
