As an entrepreneur, my mind is set on being financially free and healthy. The issue I faced recently is back pain, muscle tightness, knee pain and misalignment. The powerhouse that I am, meh, I decided to work through it. It wasn’t until recent that I really thought to myself, hmm what would happen if I were in good health? Would my productivity go up? Would I be able to produce better content?
The answer was yes. You guessed it! Yes. But wait… how? This may sound crazy strange to you but many of you entrepreneurs out there have back problems not only because you sit at a desk 10 hours a day but because you’re not breathing enough and correctly. Now I know millions of people will read this post but very few people will understand the seriousness of it, track it, try it out and actually benefit from what I have. Guys and gals, I used to have a tonne of back pain, knee pain, misalignment and as of today, I’m a new person. God dropped some mind nuggets on me and said “Paul, try breathing deep and researching other people’s experiences with this” what did I do? Well, to start I decided to breathe deeply. Real deep. All the way to my stomach deep. Slowly exhaling I noticed after 5 minutes or less, my muscles were relaxed, my back was not uncomfortable or in pain and my face and body started to tingle.
Shit, we can only go max 4 min without oxygen before we die so it must be important. Test this. We are a stressed out society. The more stressed we get, the more ancestry kicks in. When this happens you start to breath shallower breaths. Sitting at a desk also collapses your lungs forward over time so you hit with way less oxygen going through your lungs and into your cells. Try it. Do this one breathing habit consistently for one simple day. Commit to it and see where it takes you. Please, I would love to hear your comments below about your experiences.
Remember the key is to breathe deep from your stomach in from your nose as much as you can, then slow out from your nose. Feel free to put one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest. You want to be breathing in from your stomach and out from your mouth.
Excited to hear your results. Go !
