Sometimes the driving is scary, and I have to remind myself to breathe deeply: you can do it, breathe in, hold….exhale. That is actually one of the advice’s that navy seals receive. They employed a psycholog to find out how to improve the success rate of their applicants (40%) and this simple thing was one of the few basic things that he recommended they teach. And it worked.

But I have been breathing wrongly all my life, as I found out yesterday (actually re-learned it, after 18 years). One does not breathe through nose and mouth, one must breathe through body, let your lungs expand. Next thing I have to do is figure out how to relax. Bed a use this breathing automatically brings heightened concentration. And it can be bit hard to know about every breath you take…..
