3 Breaths per minute. Meditate with Nate – Episode 4

3 Breaths per minute. Meditate with Nate – Episode 4 1280 800 Nate Guadagni
Meditate with Nate Episode 4 – Trapezoid Breath


“Meditation is simply training our state of being so that our mind and body can be synchronized. Through the practice of meditation, we can learn to be without deception, to be fully genuine and alive.”
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

In the trapezoid breath you will breath with the pattern: 6 – 4 – 8 – 2
6: Inhale
4: Retain inhale
8: Exhale
2: Retain exhale

If you count each number as one second, it will take you 20 seconds to make each breath.
This is 3 breaths per minute, much slower than the average or 15 breaths per minute.

If you feel dizzy, lightheaded or in any way uncomfortable, simply return to a normal breathing pattern until you feel better.

It may take a while for your nervous system and body to adapt to this slow type of breathing.
Don’t force it!

The Benefits of Controlled Breathing

By LESLEY ALDERMAN NOV. 9, 2016 New York Times

“Controlled breathing may also affect the immune system. Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina divided a group of 20 healthy adults into two groups. One group was instructed to do two sets of 10-minute breathing exercises, while the other group was told to read a text of their choice for 20 minutes. The subjects’ saliva was tested at various intervals during the exercise. The researchers found that the breathing exercise group’s saliva had significantly lower levels of three cytokines that are associated with inflammation and stress. The findings were published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine in August.”

Mindful Relationships: Seven Skills for Success Integrating the science of mind, body and brain.

By: Dr. B. Grace Bullock http://www.bgracebullock.com

Buy the book here: http://a.co/5Rz6D3r

Quotes from the book:

1. “During the past several decades, contemplative neuroscientists have explored how mindfulness practices like meditation may alter brain structure and connectivity and enhance mental function.”

2. The more often we perform a task, the stronger the connections between neurons become. It’s sort of like exercising your bicep. The muscle grows bigger and stronger with repeated use. Unlike your muscles, however, networks in the brain are capable not only of increasing in size, but also of changing function depending on how they’re used. You’ve probably heard the expression, “Neurons that fire together wire together” (Shatz 1992)

3. Regular meditation practice is linked to improved learning, memory, and increased self-awareness. A study of 16 adults following an eight-week mindfulness-based stress reduction (MSBR) course demonstrated increases in grey matter in the brain regions associated with perspective-taking, emotion regulation, learning, memory, and self-referential processing. Participants also reported feeling less stress.
