Better Breathing, Better You

Really though. Have you guys ever stopped to notice how shallow you're breathing? Barely seems like you're breathing at all.

I bring this up because this is something I notice all the time. Either I'm not really breathing while I'm working or I'm working with clients and they aren't breathing with their exercises.

The breath is so powerful. You can use it to help control your form on lifts and different exercises and you can use it to try to regulate your nervous system to get yourself out of the flight or fight mode, like me when I get really flustered and overwhelmed.

Tip (that I've been coaching myself on): Whenever I'm trying to get a lot done all at once and I find myself feeling lost, I stop and take a deep breath. Maybe 3 or 4 if need be. Then I'm settled and ready to take on the next thing, whether it's a business task or a burpee.
