The Importance of Breathing

Well, obviously, you say. If we didn’t breathe, we’d be dead. True, but I speak of the quality of breathing. Most people breathe from the upper chest. To go deeper and lower, from the diaphragm, slowing down the rate and focusing on the exhale has so many benefits that can literally change the frequency of the world.
I could go on at length, but I'll keep it simple.

1. Breathing deeply calms us within minutes.
2. Breathing deeply centers and balances us so we can access our inner wisdom and guidance.
3. Breathing deeply helps us focus in the moment.
4. Breathing deeply rejuvenates and cleanses us.

"Breathe and create miracles" says a bumper sticker. Our planet depends on it.
