The Power of Breathing, Part 2: What is Theoretically Optimal, And The Nervous System/Brain-Stress Connection

Part 2 of a now 4-part series  (Due to the breadth of this topic, this has been made into a 4 part series instead of 3)
In the first article of this series, we discussed some of the philosophical realities of why optimal breathing might be a “magic” potion when dealing with stressors. Today, I’m going to dig way deeper into the specifics of this philosophy by exploring the nervous system/brain-stress connection. First though, I’d like to make a comment or two on the idea of “optimality,” a qualification towards human anatomical commonalities and differences.

What You Need to Know about Getting Better…Together

I was deep into a discussion with a friend recently on growth, getting better, learning styles and the like (read nerds) when he brought up the Tower of Babel, using the building of this structure as a metaphor. In this biblical story, the people sought to build a tower that would reach all the way to heaven in order to make a name for themselves. All speaking the same language, they came together to begin construction. God recognized that as one unified group, nothing was out of their reach. So God, attempting to stifle their arrogance, separated them and confused their language. Unable to find a way to communicate with each other, they were forced to abandon the tower, which was burned, and the bottom swallowed by the earth.
