Default Breathe Folks, Open Up Those Lungs

This one issue people don't think about, good deep breathing, and most just go thru life doing their shallow breathing. The lungs are a huge issue in this covid disaster and if only people worked on their own breathing, that could change things.

If one can, get outside and if one has Sun, get in the sun and do some good deep breathing and with NO MASK, which only constricts breathing.

Deep long breaths thru nose, and long deep breathing out thru mouth...Do these during the day and do them slowly. No hyperventilating.

I do the deep breathing work thru the day and was just reminded again by Dr. Victory during her weekly 1 hr program.

And of course she forever talks about Vit C, Vit D, Zinc, Quercetin and I take Grape Seed Ex for years, all for prophylactics.

Yes and for pain control too, when I was in rehabs for 4.5 months with knee mess, the PT's and OT's kept telling me deep breathing helps with pain management.

It is so easy to forget about the benefits of deep breathing...

[Health problems are one result. A prime example is high blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease. The stress response also suppresses the immune system, increasing susceptibility to colds and other illnesses. Moreover, the buildup of stress can contribute to anxiety and depression.]

[Deep breathing also goes by the names of diaphragmatic breathing, abdominal breathing, belly breathing, and paced respiration. When you breathe deeply, the air coming in through your nose fully fills your lungs, and the lower belly rises.]
