Most of us do not pay attention to the way we breathe unless we are ill. Research has proved that the way we breathe has a direct impact on the way we feel at any particular time and also on our overall health. Today, there are devices available in the market that can help you track your breathing whether you are exercising or lying down to take a nap. If you don’t have one of these devices yet you may want to go shopping – although it is a simple device it can warn you ahead of time of impending health problems.
As you look around you will that there are many brands of breathing rate monitors available in the market and you may wonder which one would be most suitable. The most rudimentary only measure your breathing rate but there are many other that can help you monitor vitals such as heart rate, perspiration rate and even the amount of calories that you lose when you are working out. Monitoring additional vitals helps you get a more complete picture of your health and your doctor can use this information to advice you on changes that you should make to your lifestyle.
As you shop you should also consider where the device is supposed to be worn – many people buy breathing and heart rate monitors only to abandon them because they are too uncomfortable to keep on especially when exercising. There are brads that are designed to be worn in unobtrusive places such as on the wrist, the ankle or even on a visor. Make sure that you buy a device that can sync to your laptop – this way you can download your data and hold on to it for some time.
