A group of resources to help form healthy habits
There is this happy side-effect when you read a book about health and breathing. For 300+ pages you become very conscious of your breathing patterns and end up getting very focused practice along the way. When we might find it difficult to form good habits – we can just consume more material and get on with it.
This is a growing list of resources I’m gathering to help me form some healthy habits.
This post will be updated with more resources. Submit a pull request or contact me if you want to add anything else on breathing and health.
