Breathwork can be soothing and enjoyable (once you understand its principles). An important part of breath work is letting it flow, rather than making it happen. The free flow of breath brings peace and tranquility. It prepares the mind to flow freely.
When you direct your attention to the breath, your mind may want to go elsewhere. Every time you focus on “breath,” you let go of your “mind chatter.” Concentrating on breathing enables your mind to gather its scattered energies so that you are more clear. When you focus on your breathing, you gradually enlarge the scope of your awareness.
The “breathing awareness” can help you with your day to day activities. Turning to your breath can keep you grounded. It can assist you in cutting down on unnecessary thinking that distracts you from the here and now.
