In searching for info that aired last week on studies about mental testing and developing mental practice sessions to enhance, increase and hopefully slow down sluggish or loss of memory as one ages, the article on breathing came up. It was the first article I'd seen about breathing and its affect on memory. I forwarded it to a friend who had asked if I knew of ways to improve memory, including research sources. Also, I believe that many people whose bodies are disproportionately shaped breathe incorrectly which increases the degree of lopsiddedness or excessive bellies and eventually hunched backs produced from those imbalances. If we breathe correctly as we do all physical things in our day to day lives, as well as when we exercise extra, we will stand straighter, taller and slimmer and hopefully learn to repeat those efforts and outcomes regularly.
