We enter into the world with a breath and the process of breathing continues automatically. We don’t pay much attention to it unless of course something goes wrong.
But the way we breathe has an enormous impact on our health. To quote my guest directly:
“Breathing impacts every aspect of health-sleep, digestion, movement, mental well-being, disease and recovery. It’s an extraordinary resource with life-changing potential. And it’s simple, free and available to everyone.”
You are about to learn some great information and practical techniques that are key to healthy breathing and healthy living.
In today’s conversation Patrick McKeown explains the difference between functional and dysfunctional breathing, the effects of dysfunctional breathing on our health, he emphasizes the importance of nasal breathing, the roles and misconceptions about oxygen and CO2, teaches us to breath correctly to get more oxygenation to our brain and cells, for improving focus, concentration, sleep, and ease stress and anxiety, relax the nervous system, overall health and performance. and get this, it turns out breathing for women is different.
This is such a rich episode, packed not only with great information but also practical tips that you can apply right away for example how to open a blocked nose. I asked him about mask wearing: is it good, is it bad, what does it do to us, as well and learned interesting things about dry lips, double chin, ADHD and breathing and mouth taping at night for better sleep.
