Breathing is your body’s motor. The body needs energy to function and it draws a large part of it from the oxygen you breathe.
When you breathe air into your lungs, your diaphragm contracts to make room for your chest, which inflates to give the air as much room as possible. When you exhale, all your muscles relax and your chest lowers.
When air reaches your lungs, the blood there is carrying large amounts of carbon dioxide that your body must eliminate. The oxygen-laden air that enters your lungs through your windpipe goes to your bronchial tubes, and then travels to your lung alveoli. This is where the exchange happens—between the oxygen-rich air you breathe in and CO2 that is then expelled from your body as you breathe out.
