Did you remember to breathe?

Posted on February 11, 2021 by Sheryl Rapée-Adams

Imagine having to remind yourself to breathe.

Used with permission.

No worries. Breathing continues, moment after moment, year after year, throughout the lifetime. Thank goodness!

Breathing enough to stay alive is, of course, the most important thing. But will any kind of breathing do more than ensure you wake up each morning and survive the day? Whether our breathing is functional or dysfunctional affects every aspect of our lives, our mental and physical health.

Disordered breathing has a range of causes—children imitating what they see others doing, illness, injury, lifestyle, posture, habit. The good news is that if you’re awake and alive, you have the ability to improve your breathing. Unlike, say, cardiac or endocrine activity, which each of us can affect only indirectly, you can directly influence your breathing and retrain it to support your health and mental and physical well-being.
