Breathing & Exercise

The way we breathe affects the way we think and feel and how we function in our daily lives. We all normally breathe 15-20 times a minute and the second we begin to think about how we are breathing, our breathing slows down …….try it for a minute ………. you are now in the realm of conscious breathing…….after 5 minutes of conscious breathing, your vagus nerve (the happy nerve) will have begun to increase the levels of serotonin in your blood and this will lead to a calmer you – its that quick and simple.


Exercise is a basic bodily need.  The human body is built for use, and without regular exercise, it will deteriorate.

By denying yourself regular exercise you are functioning below your possible best.

An unfit body is only about 27% efficient in its exploitation of the energy available for use, but this low rate of efficiency can be raised to over 65% with regular exercise.

Your work and your leisure will become less tiring and more enjoyable as your capacity for activity increases. When your body is working at peak efficiency, your energy levels soar and everyday things become much easier to do.
