7 Benefits of Quantum Pause Breathing

Seven benefits of Quantum Pause Breathing (Box Breathing)

By James Arthur Warren

Think about this. It is possible that we breathe some of the atoms that Leonardo Da Vinci breathed every time we inhale. [1]

You all want more energy and efficiency from your everyday lives and Quantum Pause Breathing can help achieve this. Here I outline 7 benefits of Quantum Pause Breathing and if you read all the way to the end of the article there is a bonus benefit and a YouTube video you can watch to learn more.

Quantum Pause is a simple, four-stage process beginning with an in-breath of anywhere between three and six counts (depending on your lung capacity), posture, and degree of privacy. After you have gathered in your breath, breathing through your nose, you hold it (pause) for an equal count, and then exhale through your mouth, again, for the same count, and then hold (pause) for the same count. [2]

Quantum Pause breathing does not specify a length of time for each part of the breath but emphasis is put on uniformity of each stage. Box Breathing takes Quantum Pause Breathing to another level and specifies a full 100% inhale and exhale. This cycle is repeated three times in one minutes for up to 5 minutes or a total of 15 cycles.

Quantum pause breathing is a great technique to integrate the when, which, how practice and the six heart virtues [1]. It can be practised at any time in meditation, in your daily work practice and  even during your commute to work.

There are many benefits of breathing well including an awareness of the importance of breath in metabolism.

1 Increased lung capacity

The quantum pause breathing technique practiced daily, encourages a full 100% inhale and exhale which exercises the lungs and increases lung capacity. Most people in daily activitieslike  sitting at the desk use less than their full lung capacity. This means that their lungs are never fully expanded or contracted, missing out on vital oxygen. In the afternoon or evening this can equate to yawing which is an autonomic nervous response to a lack of oxygen.

2 Better oxygen transfer

Exercising the lungs increases the efficiency of respiration. Simply put, more oxygen comes into your body and more carbon dioxide leaves. The oxygen we breathe is used with water in the respiratory process for the metabolism of carbon based foods and the result is carbon dioxide that we breathe out.

3 Mental clarity and focus

Breathing well results in greater oxygenation of the brain resulting in greater mental clarity. This can also be applied before going into sport, study or work for more focus.

4 Heart-brain coherence

Your heart, like your brain, has millions of neurons and your lungs supply the oxygen for both to function well. The rhythmic nature of Quantum Pause Breathing helps to synchronize both the heart and the mind.

5 Alertness

Quantum Pause Breathing can be applied when sitting in a meeting, a class or just before reading  a book. The extra oxygen in the brain increases alertness and induces calmness.

6 Stimulate the lymphatic system and detoxify the body.

Deep breathing stimulates the lymphatic system which picks up toxins and helps to excrete them.

7 Makes you happier and reduces stress

Quantum Pause Breathing stimulates the feel good hormones, the pleasure inducing neurochemicals in the brain. It can be applied before or during a stressful situation to induce a feeling of calm.

Bonus Benefit.

Regular practice of Quantum Pause Breathing aids recovery from cigarette smoking and other respiratory illnesses.
