Many of us struggle to achieve quality sleep. Are you one of those people?
I was eventually diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnoea.
By learning how to change how I breathed I changed my habits. By doing so, I was able to reverse my symptoms. I began to enjoy an improved quality of sleep. I began to wake feeling refreshed – something that was denied to me for many years.
By permanently changing how you breathe you will enjoy:
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it” – Albert Einstein.
Or, in other words, if we keep doing what we have always done we’ll keep getting what we’ve always got.
If you want to improve your sleep and your health, you owe it to yourself to re-learn how to permanently breathe through your nose and with your diaphragm. This is how you instinctively breathed as a baby.
Have you ever wondered why it is impossible for you to mouth breathe when your tongue naturally rests against your upper palate behind your top front teeth?
Science tells us that nose breathing with your diaphragm ensures a far greater oxygen supply to your blood cells and tissues. The increased air resistance through nasal breathing will result in you inhaling 20% more oxygen than if you were to only breathe through your mouth. (see “How to Breathe your way to Better Memory and Sleep” New Scientist, 8 January 2020).
My promise to you is that by permanently learning how to mindfully change your breathing at rest, during exercise, while eating, while speaking and while sleeping you will improve the quality of your sleep and attain better health (excluding irreversible medical conditions).
