We are all 180 seconds away from not being alive.
That’s how long you’ll last if you stop breathing.
And yet, we mostly leave that critical function to our subconscious brain, which triggers our diaphragm into action and keeps us on the right side of forever, for now.
The power of conscious breathing is clear and easy to demonstrate:
Do this now:
- Breathe in for 3 seconds, as deep as you can
- Hold for 1 second
- Breathe out for 3 seconds
- After 3 seconds, repeat
- Do this 3 times
Clarity, energy and power are 30 seconds away.
And that’s 150 seconds closer than death, so it’s not all bad news.
