Hello beautiful Self-Care Goddesses,
How To Access Flow State With Breathwork? Breathwork allows us to tap into flow state because it oxygenates the brain, stimulating different regions so we can access the subconscious mind. For more details see my post on Instagram or Facebook.

Building daily gratitude habits and communicating more appreciation toward others are some of the simplest ways to gradually shift to a more positive mindset and experience the joys of life more deeply.

Breathing is something that we all do without usually realizing it. We breathe in and out about 22,000 times a day.
We are powered by breathing. Our lungs fuel us with oxygen, our body’s life-sustaining gas and pass the oxygen through our bloodstream, where it’s carried off to the tissues and organs that allow us to walk, talk, and move.
Our lungs also take carbon dioxide from our blood and release it into the air when we breathe out. The lungs are the biggest waste removal engine in the body, accounting for removal of 70% body waste in the form of carbon dioxide we exhale.
Our breathing and our lungs are precious. We need to protect them.

Interesting lung facts
- Your left lung is smaller than your right lung, to accommodate for your heart.
- 70% of waste is eliminated through your lungs just by breathing.
- Can you live without one lung? Yes you can, it limits your physical ability but doesn’t stop you from living a relatively normal life. Many people around the world live with just one lung.
- No matter how hard we exhale, our lungs will always retain 1 litre of air in the airways. This makes the lungs only human organs that can float on water.
- Oxygen only plays a small part in our breathing. The air we breathe contains 21% oxygen, but our bodies only use 5%, the rest is exhaled.
- Children and women are faster breathers than men because their breathing rate is higher.
- Humans exhale up to 17.5 millilitres of water per hour.

There is always an opportunity to take better care of our lungs, and understanding their function is a good start. Every part of our body needs oxygen from the air we breathe in order to survive. The delicate structure of the lungs performs the complex tasks of breathing and transferring oxygen to the rest of the body. At the same time, it helps protect the body from outside attack. Most of the time we are not even aware that our lungs are working, but they can be damaged in many ways and become less efficient at taking oxygen from the air and getting rid of waste carbon dioxide.
Every day we breathe about 22,000 times. Our breath, and our lungs, are incredibly fundamental to the functioning human body. Breathing is after all, a symbol of life.

The lungs are the centerpiece of your respiratory system. Your respiratory system also includes the trachea (windpipe), muscles of the chest wall and diaphragm, blood vessels, and other tissues. All of these parts make breathing and gas exchange possible. Your brain controls your breathing rate (how fast or slow you breathe), by sensing your body’s need to get oxygen and also get rid of carbon dioxide. Healthy lifestyle habits, such as physical activity and not smoking, can help prevent lung injury and disease.
