We are fans of Abraham Hicks, here is an excerpt from her: “There are two things that we were encourage you to do, in terms of action. Sit every day for 15 minutes with the intention of filling your body full of air. Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe. Breathe. Just breathe. That’s your assignment, 15 minutes of breathing, 15 minutes of in and out, in and out, and appreciation for this delicious oxygen…if you would just do that your chaotic world would smooth right out.”
The NY Times best selling book, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly.
