A few times on this site I've discussed my congenital mouth-breathing problems. For the most recent reference - click here.
Well last week Tim Ferris ran an interesting post on the importance of nasal breathing. See - The Painless Path To Endurance.
A few years ago I read how Goethe would only breath through his nose. Apparently the guy never caught a cold.
And now you've got Tim Ferriss' super-athletes also asserting the health benefits of nasal breathing...
Unfortunately I've been unable to really improve the quality of my breathing.
I just keep forgetting to breathe! Seriously.
The only time I actually remember to breath properly (through both mouth and nose) is when I'm working out.
I probably need to post sticky-note reminders at my desk, on the bathroom mirrors, on my steering wheel...
