Breathing brings energy
To stay fluid we need breathing, we need oxygen. H2O=water. Without that oxygen, we don’t stay fluid. It is so easy to forget and limit the oxygen to the brain, especially if you do a lot of sitting.Without oxygen, the emotional body will be compromised. You might feel cranky and irritable.
If you haven’t found that workout yet today, be sure to get your energy. Meanwhile, you can view this youtube and put it on in the background to guide you through a breathing practice.

How to Activate the Vagus Nerve on Your Own
- Breathe more slowly.
- Breathe more deeply, from the belly.
- Exhale longer than you inhale.
You can proceed as follows: take a breath into your belly (i.e. expanding your diaphragm) to the count of five, pause for a second, then breathe out slowly through a small hole in your mouth. While at rest most people take about 10 to 14 breaths per minute. Ideally, reduce your breathing to 5 to 7 times per minute. Exhaling through your mouth instead of nose makes your breathing a conscious process, not a subconscious one.
