The power of breath
Last year I came across this crazy sounding guy. He looks kinda rugged, a bit of a hippie, but his body is amazing.
“The Iceman” Wim Hof has not only helped advance scientific understanding, but also accomplished extraordinary feats of human endurance, including 21 Guinness World Records. Below are some of his most memorable achievements.
- Running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle, barefoot only wearing shorts
- Swimming underneath ice for 66 meters
- Hanging on one finger at an altitude of 2,000 meters
- Climbing the highest mountains in the world while wearing only shorts
- Running a full marathon in the Namib Desert without drinking
- Standing in a container while covered in ice cubes for extended periods of time
- Shown scientifically, that the autonomous nervous system related to the innate immune response, can be wilfully influenced, something that was previously unknown to science
Get ready to breathe and experience some amazing things
He’s developed a breathing program (stick with me I know this sounds crazy) that has been found to help with lots of things and all buttons that follow link to really interesting findings:-
So many times I hear people saying that they wished they could find time to practice a little self-care. The guided breathing session that I’ve linked to below on YouTube is only 11 minutes long.
