Breathwork Basics

How we breathe impacts every function of our body.

  • Most people breathe 12-15 breaths per minute, over 20,000 times a day.
  • The way we breathe directly affects our heart rate, nervous system, and heart rate variability.

Breathwork Practices Beyond Breakthrough Experiences:

While deeper breathing exercises like our Breakthrough Experiences can shift your state and lead to emotional releases or insights, it’s crucial to focus on how you breathe outside of these sessions. Improving your everyday breathing will:

  • Boost Performance: Increase your energy levels.
  • Enhance Immunity: Help your immune system function more optimally.
  • Reduce Stress: Calm your nervous system and balance your mood.

Key Practice: Breathe Through Your Nose

Why Nose Breathing?

Breathing through your nose warms, moistens, filters, and spins the air as it travels deeper into your diaphragm. It also naturally produces nitric oxide, essential for many bodily functions.

How to Breathe Through Your Nose:

  • Close your mouth!
  • Set an Alarm: Create a “Breathe” alarm on your phone to remind yourself to breathe through your nose and slow down.
  • Morning & Evening Routines: Take a few minutes in the morning and before bed to establish nose-breathing awareness.

Advanced Tip:

If you’re ready for the next step, tape your mouth shut at night to force yourself to breathe through your nose while sleeping. This simple trick can be a game changer, especially for habitual mouth breathers.

Keep practicing and let us know how it’s going in the comments.

Stay Consistent:

Maintain your morning and evening routines, and remember to focus on breathing through your nose throughout the day.

Good luck, and see you in the next module!
