Yes, this is yet another blog post about how important it is for us to breathe. Why? Because we forget. We do breathing exercises for a few days, maybe a couple of weeks, and then what happens? Life, stress, and our daily grind get in our way. So consider this your public service announcement for breathing for good health.
Now, I know you are busy, so I will get straight to the point. Doing some form of breathing exercise can help you with the following:
