Did you know mouth breathing changes your whole body for the worse? Those are the findings in James Nestor’s bestselling book Breath – The New Science of a Lost Art. The book is full of scientific reasons to make breathing correctly a priority in your life. He talks about how chronic insomnia is a breathing problem and how the lungs regulate your weight. Fascinating.
As a child, James had problems breathing through his nose, so he was a mouth breather. Eventually he taped up his mouth to force him to breathe through his nose. It worked and prompted him to explore the art and science of breathing. It’s a good book. I recommend it.
Take a long breath,
