Breathing is one of the few bodily functions which can be controlled both consciously and unconsciously.

The respiratory system eliminates 70% of your metabolic waste.

Perspiration accounts for 19%.

'Bathroom activities' contribute a surprisingly meagre 10%.

Most people breathe high in the chest, and in a shallow, irregular manner, which leads to reduced brain function, and in some people, anxiety attacks.

The internet is full of sites with masses of data and exercises. Just Google 'breathing properly' and take your pick!

The bottom line is to take time to fill your lungs with air.
