Daily Mail

As obesity levels continue their inexorable rise, the Government’s official weight-loss message is still focused on four words: eat less, move more. But if you are one of the estimated 20 per cent of people who are on a permanent diet, or one of the 40 per cent of men and 30 per cent of women who regularly exercise and still can’t seem to lose weight, it could be very tempting to start to wonder whether perhaps there’s something else going on.

The Telegraph

Take some time to get to know your breath better. Put one hand on your stomach and one hand on your upper chest, close your eyes and take a big inhale through your nose, and let it out. Take note of which hand moved the most – the bottom or the top. Eighty per cent of us are upper chest breathers, 20 per cent belly breathers. Discovering which you are can help you make the most out of your breath.
