I was hiking today near Malibu and this topic came to mind: how important proper breathing is. Usually we only focus on our breath when we’re gasping for more oxygen during rigorous physical activity- like running or playing tennis, or when we’re in a mentally quiet state- for instance during meditation or when made conscious of our inhales and exhales by an instructor during a yoga class.
But proper breathing all of the time ensures us getting more oxygen in our system, which helps keep us more balanced, calm and less apt to look for external stimulation, like unnecessary food!!!
This video is my total stream of consciousness on the topic while I was hiking. I hope you enjoy our conversation! And so it is not a one-sided conversation, please share any discoveries you might have about your own breath, once you started putting your hands on your stomach or paying attention to your breath. Did you notice you were breathing more shallowly than you realized? And did you notice how much calmer and better in general you felt when you started consciously slowing down your breathing?
I’ll see you back here soon, and never forget about your post workout snack!!!
