FIGHTING THE DISEASE: THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF CORRECT NASAL BREATHING

Perhaps you didn't know? Correct nasal breathing can help fight viral infections by strengthening your immune system.  

 

With correct breathing, we can get enough nitric oxide in our lungs and blood, which allows our blood flow through our body interrupted and provide our vital organs with enough oxygen and nutrients.

RUNNING AND MINDFULNESS OF THE MIND OVER THE BODY

Consciousness is usually directed to reaching a certain goal no matter the cost, rather than going faster toward the goal using conscious learning, better feeling, and consciously improved movement, as the AEQ method teaches.   If we refresh our memory: the AEQ method and breathing are about dealing with the causes of chronic pain and illnesses, which result from permanently raised muscle tone and a change in posture and movement of a person. These conditions also strongly influence breathing processes, which are especially susceptible to body influences and emotional stress. Learning is more efficient if we internalize it. Every jogger should pay attention not only to physical fitness but also on his mind's mindfulness over the body. In the AEQ method, we call this control over the body or being conscious of oneself. It's important to detect movement changes, which makes pinning the cause of pain or preventing even minor injuries easier.   We consciously check both posture and the way we sit, as well as walking and running. Some movements that we constantly perform unconsciously and automatically should also be observed and corrected. Then again, other moves are done actively – during sports and exercise or doing manual labor (behind a manufacturing belt or long hours behind an office computer, …).

AWARENESS OF ONE’S OWN BODY OR CONTACT WITH REALITY

We feel our inner and outer world through our bodies, through which we also respond to it. By learning with the AEQ method, we change these relationships and create a stronger and clearer connection with the body's reality. 

 

Based on the reality of bodily sensations, our identity has content and structure.

 

For each of us, the basic reality is our body. The loss of the influence of bodily sensations on the functioning of the mind and balance changes lives and creates chronic constriction and malfunction of the sensory-motor feedback loop. For a person in this state its common that:

 

(1) He tries to achieve the impossible or is holding onto an illusion.

 

(2) Isn't grounded and has a strong feeling of weakness

 

(3) He lost hope and faith

OBSERVE THE WAY YOU BREATHE AND YOU’LL FIND OUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE

Nasal breathing moisturizes and heats the air, prevents the drying of the mucous membrane, removes many pathogens, and raises nitric oxide in one's blood.  

 

Competition is not a time for an athlete to focus on how well he breathes, but he should be completely focused on the competition.

 

After training and less difficult exercises or other regular activities, you should breathe through your nose.

IF I WERE A CHILD AGAIN, I WOULD…

Reading for stronger nerves: how does self-destruction work with the best of intentions? The resemblance to self-destruction in sports is no accident.

 

Even in early childhood, a toddler has unmonitored access to the Internet and more and more often, their own smartphone. He is often more supportive of adults than adults are of him.

 

Health is the basic need of life. Healthy should be our normal condition, while illness should be the exception. Illnesses begin when the complexity of the whole operation is lower than the demands of the surroundings, from which follows, that disease cannot be a basic state of life, for then life could not develop at all..

 

In my work line, I realized that most of my client's condition is the exact opposite of what it was supposed to be and that most illnesses appeared because of their self-destructive behavior with good intentions. The foundation for that behavior was already developed in early childhood. .

SIGNS THAT OUR EXERCISE ISN’T HEALTHY

Our consciousness often uses an exaggeration in the movement to redirect emotional energy towards movement, with which we do not fix the relationships that burden us. Artificial pleasure is born, which brings us to the emergency lane.

 

 As beings with free will, we almost always have the choice to slow down, fix ourselves up, and raise our "soma" though better cooperation, understanding, and respect between the body and consciousness.

 

Due to lack of time and a too-large focus on technology and being addicted to it, we are getting worse in understanding ourselves. We are becoming more and more dependent on professionals or applications from which we expect to tell us what is wrong with us.

 

Sadly, such a program or device that could measure or show what and how we feel ourselves in our own body doesn't exist.

 

Consequently, the possibility that sports are making our lives worse in the long term is far greater than we could ever imagine. Thus, it is not an unexpected result of a study in which they followed 60 runners for a year - they found that 39 of them developed 55 injuries.

FIGHTING AGAINST PAIN ONLY MAKES IT WORSE

Only persistent, conscious, attentive, and curious exploration and an easier way to perform the movement and effectively express emotions eliminates pain and changes thinking. 

 

Sensory-motor amnesia and a lack of time force people to divert their attention to the future or past.

 

Only persistent, conscious, attentive, and curious exploration and an easier way to perform the movement and effectively express emotions eliminates pain and changes thinking. Our conscious control and efficiency increases; we use our time and energy better.

 

The changes in lifestyle that came with the modern age were mainly due to the steam engine's invention and later related inventions. With the Industrial Revolution, the developed part of the planet easily converted the energy of wood and fossil fuels into motion. It was thus less dependent on the energy it drew from food to do the work.

WHAT IS MY TRUE SPORTS GOAL?

How to find out - with a quality connection within ourselves and accept feelings and insights even when they are inconsistent with our plans and desires.

 

To become better, we need to exit our comfort zone and go beyond our current abilities, but not always and not at any cost.

 

The fact is that athletes find it increasingly difficult to progress and remain unharmed due to their reduced ability to concentrate, as today's workouts take place too much by force. What's missing is paying attention to motor intelligence. An athlete should train accordingly for a natural increase in strength and speed, without unwanted side effects and understanding of the equal importance of emotional stability and intelligence for healthy progression towards a set goal.

There are multiple reasons for the state of disconnect between the mind and body. Man's upright posture raised the head above everything else. The human brain is extraordinary, and the most complex thing known to man created by nature. A human's ability to understand and thing surprises and inspires us.

CONTROLLING THE EGO

Who is the ego? Ego allows us to change our surroundings to fulfill our needs and wishes or changes us to suit the environment. 

 

Life has been long and increasingly alienated from the body and the natural laws and rules by which the body must function. That's why we constantly face more and more obstacles in a shorter period, which creates a larger need for the ego to intervene – that's how the ego takes the main role in the body-subconscious-conscious system.

 

Ego is the state of our consciousness that occurs when an obstacle is in our way, and it allows us to defeat or avoid it. Then we direct consciousness to a constricted state and change the mind's functioning to direct the body's functioning and create the appropriate pressure and movement needed to regulate the imbalance and increase homeostasis - thus perceiving a sense of satisfaction and state that we are okay.

 

The ego itself is neither good nor bad. It is necessary to regulate the environment's attitude and provide the necessary conditions for life, satisfying needs, solving problems, and fulfilling desires.

THINKING PATTERNS DURING EXERCISE

The point of the story is that no matter how strong the effort put in the wrong direction is, it will not bring the desired or planned results.

 

With too many unwanted results, injuries, rapid mood swings, chronic fatigue, and an emotional inability to deal with disordered interpersonal relationships, we need to honestly ask and look for answers to why we exercise or train this way.

 

A well-known tale talks about a master, who, during a talk with a student, picks up a brick and starts polishing it. When the student asks him what he is doing, the master replies, "I am making myself a mirror."

The point of the story is that no matter how strong the effort put in the wrong direction is,it will not bring the desired or planned results.

 

Determining the correct path of our exercise

 

Exercise is directing time and effort to change the current state and solve a problem, fulfill a need or a wish to, for example, feel better, be better or gain more abilities that we will need to reach a certain goal. So, it is important to use the limited energy we have for exercise as efficiently as possible. Otherwise, we are losing both time and energy, which increases our lives' inefficiency.
