Breath by James Nestor

Breath is, quite literally, a breath of fresh air! Nestor takes you on the personal, scientific and historical journey which notes the importance of breathing and how to do it well. Stay with me…if we don’t breathe correctly, despite mindset, diet and exercise, then none of that really matters. A fascinating journalistic lens is applied to uncover how and why we stopped breathing effectively and useful, purposeful tips are given to bolster your own work in breathing well. Overall, some mind blowing stats, interesting anthropology and most definitely, a better night’s sleep. Get onto this one! “Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is”.
