Taking the healthiest breath possible

Download MP3
The average human takes over 9 million breaths a year.  That’s a lot of breathing!! 

And science is showing that we could be doing it better! 

Modern day life and the aging process turn many of us into dysfunctional breathers. By some estimates, 95% of humans have some dysfunctional pattern in how we breathe. 

As with most things with the body, we get what we train our bodies for. In essence, our lives are training our bodies to breathe shallow breaths through the mouth. As a result, our breath becomes less than what it has the potential to be. And our health, wellness, and fitness become less than what they could be. 

In this episode of The Longevity Gym, Pam Strand dives into the topic of breathing and discusses:

  • The better, healthier way to breathe.
  • The amazing list of health benefits derived from improving your breath.
  • The mechanics of breathing.
  • How to help your body breathe better.

There are many resources available to help you. Breath coaches and teachers, such as Pam, can help you improve your breath as well as many books with detailed guidance on how to assess your breath and breathe better. 

Learn how to improve your health and well-being one breath at a time!
