For example, an inverted breathing pattern locks up your abdominal wall, which pulls your rib cage down and puts extra tension on the scalene muscles in your neck. That affects your posture and restricts the amount of oxygen your body receives.
And if you’re not getting enough oxygen, you’re probably reaching for coffee, sugary foods or anything that can give you a quick pick-me-up.
In this video, I’ll discuss more health problems that poor breathing habits create and show you a very simple way to correct them with the help of a piece of string and some tape.
Watch my video to learn why proper breathing can be so easy to get wrong yet be so simple to fix.
