Importance of Breathing Exercise as a person living with disabilities

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Today I'll like to share my knowledge and experiences as a disable person with regards to breathing exercises.

Tip: make sure yo do ties exercise with your windows open to so that you can breathe in fresh air. I never knew how helpful and beneficial breathing exercises are. Until, one day, a years ago when I initially became paraplegic I was having severe panic attacks no one knew at the time that it was panic attacks they performed all sorts of examinations to find out what exactly was happening to me. Then one day while the doctor was making his ward rounds there was an American intern with him who observed what was happening to me and ask the nurse to get him a paper bag. Everyone on the ward was surprised when he give the paper bag to me and asked me to place my mouth to the bag a breathe into it. I could feel my heart rate settling down, it worked. Another thing I've observed as a person living with limited movements is that blood circulation becomes poor especially if you're sat or laying in bed for a great period, you need to encourage proper blood circulation to prevent bedsores, blood clots etc.. And breathing exercises has a great deal of benefits to help improve your health. I recommend it to people like myself and anyone living with any kind of disabilities. Breathing exercise helps blood circulation, constipation, oxygen flow, expansion of the lungs and it generally makes you feel good physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If there's anything else you guys would like to me to show you, if you have any questions regarding this article or questions pertaining to living with disabilities feel free to message me I'll love to hear your thoughts and views.
