I received a free copy of Breathe for my honest opinion.
What is something that humans cannot live without. Most people would automatically say food and water, but even more important than those is air. It is often overlooked as we take it for granted, we have no lack of oxygen whereas food and water supplies vary over time. You can live for a few days or even weeks without food or water (although it is not recommended), but how long can you live without air?
Is it possible to breathe wrong? Yes! I have been breathing wrong for such a long time and I knew it, but I never knew (or really wanted) to change it. I am what is called a paradoxical breather, so when I breath in, I tighten my stomach and when I breath out it relaxes; this is the complete opposite of how our body is designed to function!
Having only tried these techniques for a few days, I am already noticing a difference not just in my breathing, but how generally I am feeling. I am more relaxed and focused while still enjoying the full on life that I live. Being a sportsperson, these breathing techniques will only help me get a competitive edge over everyone else and help me be at my most efficient.
I would totally recommend Breathe to anyone regardless of how they think that they breathe. Like your muscles, it is something that needs to be continually worked on to be efficient.
