Things I’ve Learned – Nostril Breathing

How are you breathing right now? More specifically, what nostril (presuming you’re breathing with your nose) are you inhaling through? Weird question, I know. I was told a few days ago that what side of our nose we use reflects how we are feelings. If we’re breathing through our right side, then we’re feeling a bit stressed or at least active. When we switch to our left side, it means that we’re relaxed. It sounds ridiculous to me, but I can say that before my yoga class last week I was really anxious about some work things and was definitely breathing through my right nostril. By the end of class though, that had switched, so maybe there’s something to this.
