Better Breathing Mechanics?

fallTree[1] Your life requires that you take good care of yourself.  When you feel off center, you become less aware of subtle and profound connections between muscle and nervous system, between thought and tissue, between energetic flow and stagnation.  So, you take personal care and health very seriously. 
 
Still, as dedicated to health and growth as you are, you have set backs and issues to deal with.  There is no magic bullet or theory.  Health and satisfaction comes in hundreds of little steps, choices, serendipities, and breaths. 
 
If you have any interest in finding out more about your own breathing pattern, what it means to your choices, and how to use it to help you, come to my Better Breathing workshop on Saturday, February 18, 2018, 1:00-3:00, in Fountain Square.  Here is more information.  ==> ==> ==>

How easily do you want blood cells to glide through your veins?  Do you want your sinuses to process pollen easily? Do you want to cushion your spine and brain? How easily do you want nutrient particles and waste to move into and out of your intestinal walls?   Imagine how difficult it is for your guts to move chips along a dry or mucous-filled canal?  Oy!  Moisture is needed, and it’s easiest if every day you drink the appropriate amount of healthy, clean water.

How much water to drink?  Half your body weight in ounces is an easy way to measure.  If you weigh 180; that’s 90 ounces. I drink a glass on the way to the bathroom in the morning.  Then, I fill a liter bottle and put it next to my desk.  By noon, I know I’ve drunk half of my day’s water.  I refill the bottle, and by evening, I’m drunk enough.

How do you know if you’re drinking enough?  Try the pinch test–pinch the flesh on the top of your forearm.  The skin should easily pinch and return to normal.  Three  ten-ounce glasses with your meals and a morning coffee just doesn’t cut it, unless you weigh 80 pounds. How long do you spend in the bathroom for your morning bowel movement?  A couple minutes at most should do it. Easy evacuation depends on adequate hydration.  

I often don’t drink with meals (sometimes drinking with meal helps, sometimes it doesn’t–more in a future post). Your hydration needs depend on your diet. How much pasta, bread, chips and dry foods to you eat? Think about sliding that through a dry gullet.

Be good to your guts and your fluid-filled body by drinking water.  Spring water?  City water?  That’s another article.  The best to you today!

Better Breathing Workshop

Here is an exercise from the Better Breathing Workshop for this Saturday, May 28, 2016.  Move your lower rib cage while you breathe.  Not the upper chest or the shoulders, but the lower rib cage.  Put your hands on your sides where you can feel your ribs.  Make them flare out as you inhale. They’ll float back in as you exhale. Move them as much and as often as you can before our workshop.  You’ll be surprised how mobility improves in just a few days.kiteswirl by joatklipa

This one-minute video shows what is going on with the diaphragm and ribs while you breathe.  Click here. 

Moving the lower ribcage is the first of 5 points we’ll cover for that easy, efficient, baseline breath.  You’ll come away with a 10-minute practice that will help you, and that you can develop as much as you like. (And if you’re interested in advanced breathing practices, you’ll want to get the mechanics of the baseline breath first.)  Register for the workshop  or for more information (contact @ cynthiabretheim . com).
