For a Flashback Friday post, I want to share the song called Barely Breathing by Duncan Sheik. When Christie shared the Indigo Girls song the other day, it reminded me of the 1990’s – and KBCO Studio C – (HERE) which was a local studio that had different music artists come in and record line (often unplugged).
And for some Friday fun -let’s flashback with some old skool Jim Gaffigan, where he talks about bottled water (and side note, please stop buying and drinking bottled water – it adds to the landfill and it could have gunk in it from the cheap plastic).
This cool image was over at The Write Might blog this week – and not only does it offer some inspiration (to stop measuring success only by output) – but this can serve as another reminder to make sure we are breathing properly!
You see – most of us are breathing too shallow – and it is robbing the body of oxygen, which could impair nervous and lymph function.
And without realizing it – we are “barely breathing” for health!
I know many of us have heard this before – but we need to be reminded of it again – because sloppy breathing pulls from wellness!
So this weekend – make it your goal to work at making sure you are breathing properly – deeply – through the nose – and with some relaxin’ –
Breathe through the nose, make sure it goes down to your belly (70 to 80% of the breath should be done by the diaphragm – more here) and as you breathe — relax – find a rhythm – and focus (pray, meditate, or think about some things you are grateful for – like maybe that you are still here to take a breathe 🙂 )
Have a nice Friday – 🙂
