Are You Functioning At Your Minimum Level?

Expert Tips: Health and fitness

With age, and as a testament to the current Age, we have largely lost the truth of our breath, and our bodies, minds and spirits suffer. Through stress, and sometimes injury, our bodies shift and tighten to the point that deep breathing is restricted. All that remains is the shallowest breath with the minimum oxygen intake to keep our bodies functioning at the minimal level.

To put it simply, every part of our bodies need oxygen to function properly. Every cell, every tissue, and every organ yearns for oxygen. It is the catalyst that metabolizes the nutrients used by our cells. 

When we don’t get enough oxygen, our bodies and brains are sluggish. Nothing works as well as it should, and our spirits are dampened. We move and think slower so that our bodies can make the best use of the small oxygen reserves that it is receiving. If only we took in more oxygen, our bodies would be at liberty to function at their optimum efficiency.

Luckily, our bodies are already equipped with the ability to take in much larger volumes of oxygen than we normally experience. Our lungs and diaphragm work in perfect concert to flood our bodies with the right amount of energy-infusing oxygen. All we have to do is breathe deeply.
