Breathing is one of the most neglected topics in terms of health and physical performance. This is despite the fact we take a breath several times a minute. We take it for granted and don’t seem to question it in any way. But more and more people stop nasal breathing and switch to constant mouth breathing.
This provides several negative health impacts which I address in this video. We discuss how mouth breathing is bad for your overall health and physical performance. I also give several pointers on what to look for and become a nasal breather again
If you are looking for an easy breathing exercise that you can do if you feel overwhelmed or stressed, I encourage you to give box breathing a try.
