Danjeon Breathing for Depression

Danjeon breathing is one of the most effective methods to bring relief to those suffering from depression. Depression places heavy burdens on the family, individual and society and the number of cases of depression are increasing around the world. Economic uncertainty and lack of direction are some of the largest reasons for depression but solutions have been few and far between. Until now.

Danjeon breathing has been a great solution for depression for thousands of years since its discovery around the beginning days of acupuncture. In fact, it's been rare to find many cases of depression through Korean history, and danjeon breathing is one stronger reasons. But first, let's look into the origins of depression to see how danjeon breathing can help.

One theory of depression is that it comes from runaway emotions and negative thinking. At times we have a negative situation in our lives and we do not know how to respond to it, and it leaves an emotional scar or trauma. Or we have problems with our co-workers or friends or loved ones and we end up blaming or criticizing them. Unresolved trauma, months and years of criticism and blame make one tired, exhausted, dark and over time can lead to depression because of a misplaced view of a dark future. Depression often follows from this sequence.

Danjeon breathing is the way out of the darkness and the way to keep one from falling into the cave in the first place. Danjeon breathing rings in 7% more oxygen to the body; not only that, it extends one's breathing and expends the lungs. Slower breathing, deeper breaths allows more oxygen to penetrate to the brain. Longer breathing slows down one's brain waves, producing calm, clarity and happiness.

One then starts to smile naturally from the inside. One begins to have happier thoughts and to see the world with a positive outlook. "The cup is half full," you begin to say. Your understanding of others widens and you can easily put yourself in others' shoes and give them the benefit of the doubt. You think of a bright future, and even if things do not go well today, you see them as merely pebbles on the road rather than a huge barrier. Your positivity overflows and you begin to attract more positive people and prosperity into your life.

With happiness, brightness and understanding, your confidence grows and fears decrease. You step out of the cave of blame and darkness into a field of hope and beauty.

There is really no better natural aid to depression than danjeon breathing.

Marrying Yourself: Positive Songs, Positive Music And New Marriage

Chante Moore is known for love songs which are seen as positive songs by listeners all over the globe. Hits like "Chante's Got A Man" are balanced by her large repertoire of mellow songs. Some positive music, including one (and possibly more) of Chante's love songs, can be used in weddings and commitment ceremonies. Those songs are relaxing and ideal for ceremony. The type of marriage involved has typically featured a couple. Chante broke new ground when debuting on a reality show and deciding to marry herself. The act was documented on the television show; it represented the theme of a book which was released around the same time period.

Her book was marked as a source of self-love material. Positive songs about romantic love provide the perfect opportunity to describe how self-love is important. By writing this material, Chante merged the romance with wisdom and the music. While we can not all marry ourselves on a network television show, Chante's example showed that positive music and its' singers do not have to stick to the status quo. And, in fact, if they have something interesting and informative to share, they will often depart from the status quo at some point: sharing information that is seen as marginal and uncommon.

Another artist willing to break the mold, Queen Latifah, went through a similar theme in her life. In past songs, Latifah has advocated for more respect for women and more unity among people as a whole. In her past appearance on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Latifah expressed that she was currently discovering and loving herself day by day. She described the unique move while wearing a wedding ring, which she was asked about by the show's host. Latifah's comments would suggest allegiance with a similar theme in the self-love community- real love begins with self-love.

Music can be a motivating. Backing up the positive songs with action can increase the effectiveness. When you're reaching for relationship happiness, and lowering your standards, this can mean you will have to talk yourself into things- instead of being completely clear on sincerity, you have to ask questions, repeatedly play devil's advocate, to turn away from the internal pulls which signal problems.

Positive music and can help us remember how we are supposed to be treated and treat others. And unique methods, like self-love marriage, can make it that much harder for us not to follow through with the messages in the music.
