If you’re wondering what breathing has to do with standing up for yourself, living in harmony, improving your relationships, and increasing your overall happiness and confidence, you’re not alone. Many people have no idea how something as simple as breathing can affect every single aspect of their lives. I used to be one of those people until I discovered the power inherent in my breath, and now I can testify that breathing has everything to do with feeling healthy, happy and whole. My purpose in writing this book is to help you see how your life also can be made better just by the simple act of changing how you breathe.”

~ Anders Olsson from The Power of Your Breath

I read this book after reading James Nestor’s great book, Breath.

James mentions Anders Olsson a number of times in that book. In fact, they actually do a crazy experiment together in which they had a doctor at Stanford surgically plug up their noses so they HAD to breathe through their mouths exclusively for 10 days.

The results? Not good. At all.

As James puts it: “The major takeaway we already knew: mouthbreathing is terrible… The nagging fatigue, irritation, testiness, and anxiety. The horrid breath and constant bathroom breaks. The spaciness, stares, and stomachache. It was awful.”

YET… Most of us breathe through our mouths most of the time.
