Breathing – it’s something we do every day without even thinking about it. But did you know that the way you breathe can have a huge impact on your life and achievements? Some time ago, an article on the 5 Tibetans + website about the Navy Seals breathing technique caught my attention, so I decided to delve into this topic. The fascinating idea of using this method prompted me to suggest to my colleague to try it together. What we saw in the video was an inspiring start for me. Since then, some time has passed, and my colleague and I regularly practice breathing in the 4:4:4 cycle, known as the Navy Seals technique, which you can see in the video above. I would like to invite you to discover the fascinating Navy Seals breathing technique that can change the way you deal with stress and focus on your goals. It’s a simple but powerful technique that you can use in any situation, whether you’re looking for a way to improve performance at work or find a way to relax after a long day. I would like to show you how easily you can start practicing this method and reap its benefits every day. Let’s start with the source of this technique. The Navy Seals breathing technique comes from years of training and experience of the elite special forces unit, the Navy Seals. These exceptional soldiers developed this method as a tool to help them survive in difficult combat conditions and increase their physical and mental performance during extreme missions. Below you can see that the Navy Seals breathing technique is based on simple but powerful principles:

  1. Sit or lie down comfortably in a quiet place. Close your eyes and relax, focusing on calm breathing for a few moments.
  2. Inhale through the Nose (4 seconds): Start with a deep inhale through the nose, trying to fill the lower parts of the lungs with air. As you inhale, there should be a slight lift of the abdomen. Count to four to maintain a steady rhythm of inhalation.
  3. Holding Air in the Lungs (4 seconds): After reaching a full inhale, pause for four seconds, holding the air in the lungs. During this hold, try to maintain calm and focus.
  4. Exhaling through the Mouth (4 seconds): Begin to slowly and controlledly exhale air through the mouth. Try to exhale evenly, counting to four in your head to maintain a steady rhythm of exhalation. Make sure the exhalation is even and controlled.
  5. Holding the Lungs Empty (4 seconds): After a complete exhalation, pause for four seconds, keeping the lungs empty. Allow yourself a moment of peace and focus on the four-second break.
  6. Continue these steps for a few minutes, focusing on calm and controlled breathing. The more you practice, the easier it will be to achieve control over your breathing in stressful situations. While performing these steps, I focus exclusively on the present, eliminating all distracting thoughts. It’s really a simple technique, but it has a huge impact on my daily life. Thanks to it, I feel more focused, calm, and ready to cope with any challenge that life brings me.

This detailed Navy Seals breathing technique is for me not only a way to improve concentration and reduce stress but also a tool to achieve better results in both personal and professional life.
