BREATHE: Step Out of Your Fat Suit

Our weight depends on a complicated blend of variables – from how much we move (exercise), to what we eat, how much we eat, how we feel about ourselves, to hereditary factors.   But there is one very simple thing that we do that will boost our metabolism.

Breathe!  Healthy breathing helps us maintain the right balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our cells, which has a favorable impact on our metabolism.

Breathing can:

  1. Boost our metabolism.
  2. Make us feel better mentally, physically & emotionally.
  3. Calm us.
  4. Release endorphins, which help us to feel happy.
  5. Enhance our appearance.
  6. Make us feel instantly stronger and thinner.
  7. Revitalize and energize every cell in our bodies.
  8. Increase our energy level.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care Center, says “Every breath, actually, is a release not only of air, but all the pent-up energy in the body. Every in-breath can be restoration or revitalization, and every out-breath a letting-go of anxiety or anger or tension or irritability.”

Instead of stuffing down your feelings with food, breathe.

It’s natural. It’s free. And it’s easy.
