Do you wake up exhausted or often get tired in the afternoon? It’s actually quite normal to feel this way. There’s a biological cause for the “afternoon slump” many of us experience.
Missing breakfast, eating a carb-heavy lunch, daily hormonal fluctuations, and our circadian rhythm all contribute to this daily period of fatigue. So does the way we breathe.
No matter the cause, this dip in energy can cause huge challenges when you need to be productive at work, check things off of your to-do list, or look after your kids.
Most of us will try anything to get the energy boost we need, from a cup or two of coffee to slamming energy drinks.
Before you reach for another cup of coffee to get you through that afternoon slump, pause and breathe. Seriously. Certain breathing exercises can boost your energy in a flash.
Before we dive into specific breathing exercises that increase energy, it’s helpful to understand the basics behind how your respiratory system operates.
When you inhale, your diaphragm contracts to make room for the lungs to expand. The muscles between your ribs contract, pulling the ribcage up and out.
Air is sucked in through the nose or mouth, traveling down the airway and into the lungs. As this happens, the lungs expand.
After the lungs move through your bronchial tubes, they reach air sacs called alveoli. From here, oxygen moves into the bloodstream as carbon dioxide leaves the bloodstream and exits the body as you breathe out.
If you’re not breathing optimally, your body won’t operate in tip-top shape. As a result, you’ll feel fatigued, unmotivated, and may even experience increased brain fog.
Proper exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, however, causes the opposite to occur.
A recent study shows this in action. Patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) had an irregular breathing rhythm. However, breathing exercises helped them to improve their condition by correcting their oxygen levels to optimal levels.
Something as simple as exhaling for a longer duration than your inhale can take the body from fight or flight to a state of relaxation and even decrease depression.
This all ties back to the nose.
When you breathe through the mouth, you’re over-breathing and placing your body in a panicked state of fight-or-flight.
This raises stress hormones like cortisol, heart rate, and blood pressure and throws off your oxygenation rate.
Nasal breathing, however, boosts energy levels by returning the balance of carbon dioxide and oxygen to its proper state. Nasal breathing has also been shown to:

Now that you know how nasal breathing affects energy levels and overall health, let’s go over some simple, easy breathing exercises you can do from anywhere to boost your energy in a pinch.
One of the best breathing exercises for energy is “Bellows Breath,” also known as “Bhastrika.” This is traditionally used in yoga to boost your “life force” and clear the mind.
This breathing exercise is also thought to help boost your metabolism by activating the digestive system. Next time you need a jolt of energy, perform Bellows Breath. Here’s how:
Although this is a safe breathing technique, it may lead to lightheadedness or slight discomfort. Stay sitting and pause for a few minutes until the discomfort passes until you can work your way up to the full breathing exercise.
5-3-3 breathing is a fairly convenient breathing exercise for energy due to the simple nature of the technique.
Much like 5-3-3 breathing, Five Finger breathing can be used anywhere, anytime to increase energy.
Since so many senses are involved in this breathing exercise, you’ll boost energy while relieving anxiety and stress.
Box breathing is such an effective breathing exercise for energy that even Navy SEALs are known for using it. It’s also easy to remember: each step lasts for the same count.
Alternate nostril breathing is not only a wonderful breathing exercise for energy; it may also help with mild cases of congestion. This, in turn, can improve nasal breathing.
We’ve gone over the best breathing exercises to boost energy during the day, but what about when you sleep? Improper breathing during sleep causes snoring, decreased energy, brain fog, and can even lead to sleep disorders.
Mouth tape helps you nasal breathe into the night without any added effort. It keeps the lips sealed, preventing mouth breathing and encouraging nasal breathing.
As a result, you’ll wake up refreshed, renewed, and full of energy after a quality night’s sleep. Now, you’re probably wondering, “Will Scotch tape work?”
Chemicals found in most tape adhesives aren’t meant for the skin and can be irritating and damaging. Our strips, however, were created with your sensitive skin in mind.
They’re latex-free, gluten-free, and hypoallergenic. Our strips also feature a gel-like adhesive that’s so comfortable you’ll forget you’re even wearing mouth tape!
