Learn How to Breathe Correctly
"If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly."
- Andrew Weil, M.D., 1999
"Our breathing patterns are the key to managing our attention, to our feeling of well-being, and more importantly, to nourishing our body with great lymph and blood circulation and with oxygen. Breath holding contributes to a state of fight or flight, to impulsive behavior, to a flood of stress hormones, and to compromised digestion and elimination. Teaching optimal breathing patterns, particularly in the early years, is as crucial as exercise and proper nutrition."
- Mark Hyman, M.D., The Blood Sugar Solution, 2012, p. 236
