Stop! Take a Breath!

It’s 2021!  And this week is a treacherous one!  So, what better time to practice breathing!  Not just normal breathing that we do without thinking: faster and shallower when we are stressed or in a hurry, or very slow when we are able to achieve deep sleep, but mindful, healing, calming, breathing that we need to learn and practice.  The documented health effects of this kind of breathing go way beyond simple relaxation or mindfulness.  The introduction to this podcast offered by Dhru Purohit says it all:

To quote Dhru: “There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing, yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with serious consequences. Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease, and even straighten scoliotic spines.”

James Nestor is a renowned journalist and in May of 2020 put forth an instant best seller called Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art.  I have studied meditation and trained in mindfulness, and learned so much in this book.  I knew breathing was extremely important, but had no idea of the multitude of health ramifications it offers!
