How to Relax The Mind in 1 Min (Easy Breathing Exercise)

Woman with peace of mind This simple and natural breathing exercise, "How to Relax Your Mind", was developed and used by over 150 Soviet and Russian doctors on thousands of patients, with striking success, even in cases of chronic anxiety, depression, addictions and schizophrenia. For most people, this exercise relaxes their mind in about 1-2 minutes. Slower and lighter breathing provides more O2 for the brain cells, producing a positive effect on function of nerve cells.

Effects of overbreathing on brain oxygen levels If you cannot relax your mind, this means that you have less than 25 seconds for the body oxygen test, while the norm is about 40 seconds.

How to relax and clear the mind (breathing exercise instructions)

Relax all your muscles. Focus on your breathing pattern. Instead of taking your usual big inhalation, take a slightly smaller inhalation (only about 5-10% less than you had before) using the diaphragm. Then immediately relax all body muscles. Take another (smaller) inhalation and again completely relax.

With each breath, you need to take a smaller or reduced inhalation (in comparison with your usual breathing pattern) and then completely relax. You will soon experience a slight shortage of air. Your goal is to preserve a mild level of air hunger, while relaxing all muscles. This chart shows the changes from your previous (the black line) to your new breathing pattern (the blue line):

How to relax and clear the mind

If you are in poor health, your breathing will be frequent during this reduced breathing exercise and this is ok. This exercise will still help you to relax and even clear your mind. If you do this exercise correctly, you will experience these signs:
- Your hands and feet will get warmer quickly (in about 1-2 minutes)
- Your nasal passages will become moister and the nose little colder in about 1 min.

How to have a relaxed mind all the time

If you want to learn how to have relaxed and clear mind all the time, you should improve your brain-O2 content by slowing down your automatic breathing. All you need is to achieve normal breathing (to breathe within the medical norms or to have normal arterial CO2 levels all the time) with about 40 s for the body oxygen test. Note that there are many lifestyle changes that increase brain-O2 content and calm/relax your mind.

Why modern people cannot have a peace of mind

The key physiological causes of anxious minds are in abnormal automatic breathing patterns that reduce brain O2 and CO2 content.

Breathing changes during last 80 years

The norm for breathing at rest is 6 L/min, while modern people breathe 2 times more air. Therefore, they suffer from chronic anxiety due to low O2 and CO2 content in the brain. Carbon dioxide, as dozens of studies proved, is a potent sedative and tranquilizer of the nerve cells (see links below). In fact, CO2 is more important than O2 to relax and clear your mind.

Lifestyle factor: Body oxygen < 30 s Body oxygen > 50 s
Energy level Medium, low, or very low High
Desire to exercise Not strong, but possible Craving and joy of exercise
Intensive exercise with nose breathing Hard or impossible Easy and effortless
Typical mind states Confusion, anxiety, depression Focus, concentration, clarity
Craving for coffee, sugar and junk foods Present Absent
Addictions to smoking, alcohol, and drugs Possible Absent
Desire to eat raw foods Weak and rare Very common and natural
Correct posture Rare and requires efforts Natural and automatic
Sleep Often of poor quality; > 7 hours Excellent quality; < 5 hours naturally
