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).
stop measuring success only by output
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 – 🙂
