Take a breath. Like, right now. Did you use your nose or your mouth? Turns out, that matters.
Journalist and author James Nestor is our guest this week. His book is Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art and he wants to help you breathe better. Specifically, he wants you to breathe through your nose more. Sleep apnea, fatigue, clogged sinuses — many times, these issues arise because too often, you’re breathing through your mouth. And get this: our ancestors? They didn’t have these problems. They used their noses to breath. By the end of the hour, you’ll be hunting for surgical tape to keep your mouth closed when you go to bed. Really.
