"Conversation with New York Times Best-Selling Author, James Nestor, Author of "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art"
There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Snoring, sleep apnea, asthma, allergies, and even autoimmune diseases are among the most prevalent diseases in the modern world, and all of them can be caused or worsened by poor breathing.
Acclaimed author and journalist James Nestor has spent the last decade trying to figure out why humans lost the ability to breathe correctly and how we can fix it. In this eye-opening talk, he explains the science and history of breathing, why breathing is essential for our health, and how even slight adjustments to our breathing can profoundly improve everything from workplace efficiency and athletic performance to anxiety, asthma, and sleep.
