Breathing. It is something we all do but don’t think too much about. In the award-winning book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, author James Nestor shares the knowledge he has gained from traveling the world and studying the process of breathing. He discusses, in a very readable, entertaining style, how breathing works, how it has changed over time and in various cultures and how we can improve our approach. This popular book leans into both science and self-help and may be just the boost you need to kick-start a happy and healthy 2023.
