What is the one thing we can consciously affect to our metabolism? Breathing.

What is the one thing few people actually learn properly? Breathing.

Breathing is something at the very core of our lives, mostly it happens unconsciously. However, we can control it consciously as well. Wise people do. Breathing has long traditions in Yogic and Buddhist meditation. Probably also many others that I am not aware of.

Breathing is so important that its so easy to overlook.

For many years, I thought I had figured out the importance of breathing. I had practiced for long, yet somehow the importance of the idea faded. Now it has suddenly become to the center of my awareness once again, thanks to the miracle of sound breathing called speech. Jari Sarasvuo gave two days ago excellent coaching session, which I’ve been referring in the two previous posts as well. However about breathing he made a point that I already knew, yet I had forgotten: breathing is at the very core of biological ’winning’. Everything starts with breathing.

Through breathing its possible to alter moods. Its’ quite a superpower for those who actually have learned about its secrets. Would it be about time to learn?
