Are you getting enough oxygen?
Isn’t breathing something that we all do naturally without thinking about it?
One of the reasons that I have left the art of breathing to this fairly late stage is that I assumed that most people were actually doing it – at least sufficiently enough to sit reading this book. The sad fact is though that most of us only use a small proportion of our lung capacity. Which is also a bit of a waste when you think that a few minutes spent each day completing a deep breathing exercise and learning to use the lungs to full capacity is as free as the air you breath.
It is well worth remembering that only the fittest athletes can survive for more than 6 minutes without air – we all need water within 6 days and we can live without food for 6 weeks. I know what should be on our priority list.
As we get older we find we become more and more breathless as we undertake activity but this need not be inevitable and in this chapter, I am going to provide you with the tools you need to improve this absolutely vital function. These very simple exercises are a definite weapon against ageing and health problems. #recommendedread
