Take a deep breath, and count to 10. Works a treat to calm you during a row, doesn’t it? Not to mention preventing an outburst. But what if changing the way you breathed for good could improve your health, fight depression, make you look younger and even help you lose weight?
Breathing is one of the most natural things in the world – we do it while running for the bus, while deep in thought, even while asleep – so isn’t “learning to breathe” a little like learning to grow your hair? Well, not quite – it seems that we have had a whole lifetime to pick up bad breathing habits, which we need to unlearn.
