  • Is breathing and meditation the same thing?
    No, they are not the same thing. Breathing is a stepping stone to meditation that has some similar positive outcomes and side effects. If you have a hard time meditating – start with breathwork! Breathing techniques work faster. Some people find it easier to shift from a negative dull state using breathing exercises than with meditation. Breathing techniques bring you back from an anxious state to calm in a shorter time than purely meditation.
