Learning how to breathe correctly can help you control stress, anxiety, tension, and more.
Did you get stumped on the word "learning?" Because, after all, who needs to learn how to breathe, right? We do it naturally, automatically. If we didn't we'd be dead. That's true. But there are, in fact, breathing techniques - that, when applied appropriately - can help you live a more peaceful, productive, life.
Knowing the difference between good and bad breathing techniques is crucial.
There are plenty of books, classes, and retreats that advocate all manner of breathing techniques, so it's difficult to know where to start. In this book, all of those issues are addressed. Rather than heading to the nearest ashram or spiritually retreating into a book where you need to learn strange, unpronounceable terms, Breathe first makes sure you understand the mechanics of breathing. From there, it's a vocal hop, skip, and a jump to the technique itself.
Relax, and trust your body. It's the key to good breathing.
It sounds easy, but we live in a world where external influences control so much of what we do, and yes, that includes our breathing. Breathe reveals that we are all born knowing the correct way to breathe, and there are ways to find our way back to that great breathing technique hidden deep inside us. It's simply a matter of learning the techniques outlined in this book that can help you let go and live and breathe deeply.
So, don't be left breathless. Read Joey Lott's Breathe, and start the journey that will take you back to being your best self.

About the Author
"The secret to happiness is to let go of everything - see through every assumption."
Beginning at a young age Joey Lott experienced intensifying anxiety. For several decades he lived with restrictive eating disorders, obsessions, compulsions, and an inescapable fear. By the time he was 30 years old he was physically sick, emotionally volatile, and mentally obsessed with keeping any and all unwanted thoughts and experiences at bay.
At this time Lott was living on a futon mattress in a tiny cabin in the woods. He was so sick that he could barely move. He was deeply depressed and hopeless. All this despite doing all the "right" things such as years of meditation, yoga, various "perfect" diets, clean air, and pure water.
Just when things were at their most dire, a crack appeared in the conceptual world that had formerly been mistaken for reality. By peering into this crack and underneath all the assumptions that had been unquestioned up to that moment, Lott began a great undoing. The revelation of this undoing is that reality is utterly simple, ever-present, seamless, and indivisible.
Lott's books provide a glimpse into the seamless, simple, and joyous nature of reality, offering a glimpse through the crack in conceptual worlds. Whether writing about the ultimate non-dual nature of reality, eating disorders, stress, disease, or any other subject, he offers the invitation to look at things differently, leaving behind the old, out-grown, painful limitations we have used to bind ourselves in suffering. And then, he welcomes you home to the effortless simplicity of yourself as you are.
