Why Breathing Properly Is Important.

When you breath correctly your bodies are being supplied with the right supply of oxygen. Thus replenishing your brain along with other vital organs that have essential nutrients. Without proper breathing you can feel constantly tired, weak, and lethargic because there are not enough vital nutrients being carried within the blood. Breathing is also used for yoga, meditation and stress/anxiety reduction.
