In today’s episode we have back for the second time Patrick McKeown after the tremendous feedback we received from the first show when we discussed the ‘Oxygen Advantage’.
So many people contacted me about how Patrick had opened up their eyes to the importance of nose breathing and how so many answers fell into place as a result of the clear understanding about how detrimental mouth breathing can be to your overall health, well being and performance. Patrick lectures all over the world on this subject and it is well worth checking him out at www.oxygenadvantage.com
Today though we drill down even deeper into this concept but more importantly from a Brain Booster perspective how important the breath can be as a point of ATTENTION.
How the simple act of deciding to put your attention on your breath at various points during the day can have such a wonderful effect in so many areas of your life.
We have talked so much on this show about the need to TRAIN your attention for your sport and your business.
Patrick will today give you some simple but practical tools to work on straight away that I guarantee will help you going forward.
When you look into Patrick’s work you begin to realise that the breath may well be the great untapped frontier in human performance.
We focus on how we train, we focus on what we eat and drink but we almost never look at the quality of your breathing.
We can do without food for a number of days, we can survive without water for a time but how long can we go without air?
It may seem so obvious but when you listen to Patrick your realise that this is ‘the elusive obvious’
If you are suffering from worry or anxiety then this is a show well worth listening right to the end as you will sense a path forwards away from some of the issues you may have been suffering from as a result of a mind that is too active and a body that is carrying too much tension.
In this session you will learn
How and why we are so distracted
How our attention span has been reduced enormously in only the last 10 to 15 years
If we can’t hold our attention we cannot learn and if we cannot learn we cannot perform
How attention training can be done anywhere IF the breath is the focus
How many people are in a constant state of sympathetic nervous system arousal and what to do about it
How focusing on your breath can make you become more mindful instead of mindless
How this leads to a much greater experience of life as we get out of your mind and into our experience
The long term effect of poor attention control
How your fitness can be improved by nose breathing
If you want an all round simple boost to your performance then this is a MUST listen. I personally find Patrick fascinating to listen to and his message is so fresh and new. The best bit as Patrick says is that you can work on all of this for FREE.
