breathing

i found something out about breathing
its not just inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbondioxide

its so much concerned with pain and stress

try holding the breath for about 30
secsand notice the points on the body which feel stressed...
points where pain can be felt

now breathing normally

i felt some stress/pain in
my back (because of my posture)
my hand that holds the mouse
the back of my neck
my butt (though i'm sitting on a cushioned chair)
and even my chest because of the tensed muscles due to lack of breath

now.......breathing normally......
and i found that the magnitude of pain
diminishes (if not completely zeroed)

so to refrain ourselves from experiencing pain is
one of the major reasons for breathing

**and no one can commit suicide by holding his/her own breath**
