I read this book after reading James Nestor’s great book, .
James mentions Anders Olsson a number of times in that book. In fact, they actually do a crazy experiment together in which they had a doctor at Stanford surgically plug up their noses so they HAD to breathe through their mouths exclusively for 10 days.
The results? Not good. At all.
As James puts it: “The major takeaway we already knew: mouthbreathing is terrible… The nagging fatigue, irritation, testiness, and anxiety. The horrid breath and constant bathroom breaks. The spaciness, stares, and stomachache. It was awful.”
YET… Most of us breathe through our mouths most of the time.
Anders Olsson is one of the world’s leading teachers on the science of optimal breathing. This book is packed (!) with Big Ideas and practical tips on how to Optimize our most fundamental fundie. Get a copy of the book here.
I’m excited to share a few of my favorite Ideas we can apply to our lives TODAY so let’s close our lips, take a nice, deep breath in through our nose, gently into our bellies, with a nice, long exhale as we jump straight in!
