As You Breathe, So You Live


Pranayama, breathing near the water, breath is life

Breathing is the basis of life, the way you breathe reflects the way you live your life.

There is a direct relationship between the way you breathe and the way you live, think, feel.


It happens automatically without paying too much attention to it, and so it goes.


Many people regularly take short, shallow, rapid breaths, i.e. a “normalized hyperventilation”.


This way of breathing causes countless undesirable side effects:

  • Permanent tension, both muscular, mental and of course emotional.

  • Alertness as a way of life.

  • Cortisol levels above healthy levels.

  • Hyper-reactivity and hypersensitivity to any stimulus.


Getting out of it is possible and even if it comes at a price, in the form of effort and perseverance to develop new habits, it will always be more affordable in the long run than any other price you have to pay because “of being comfortable” you have done nothing to change your habits.


The comfort of the familiar kills slowly, at least in this case, and if you do nothing, this will be a degenerative process to which more and more symptoms will be added, which you can always blame on any circumstance, and yet without any doubt, if you had “paid the price for the effort”, you would most likely have been spared by them, or at least you would certainly have delayed them long enough so that they would not have been a problem to carry with you.


What do you say?
