Breathing Trivia

🧘🏻‍♀️We breathe 12-16 times per minute—that's about 20,000 breaths per day! 🧘🏻‍♀️The average person breathes in the equivalent of 1.625 gallons of air every minute. That is about 2340 gallons per day. But most of us use only two-thirds of our optimal lung capacity. 🧘🏻‍♀️70% of toxins are eliminated through your lungs simply by breathing. 🧘🏻‍♀️Breathing is the only autonomous system of the body that we can also control. This means that the body governs it, but we can change how we breathe through conscious breathing exercises. Learning to breathe deeply can help us to use our full lung capacity. Learn and practice breathwork to improve physical, mental, emotional, social, professional, and spiritual well-being.
