We live in a time vacuum where breathing could be considered as a hobby. If so – one may consider to improve the skills to live seriously.
“The Iceman” Wim Hof is a Dutch athlete and multiple Guiness World Record holder known for his ability to withstand extreme cold and his extraordinary achievements. Wim believes that EVERYONE is capable of doing the same exceptional things his body allows him to do. That’s why he developed the Wim Hof Method – a combination of breathing exercises, cold therapy and commitment – to give YOU the tools to take control over your body. He’s on a mission to share the potential health benefits of his method, working with scientists around the world to prove that his techniques work (text from the respective video).
We live in neutral ZONE
Here I cannot skip for not to cite a few thoughts by Wim Hof:
We are meant to be able to tap in any time into our system to make us happy, strong, healthy.
What does a mother want for her child? And the mother is the one who gives the birth to our existence. She wants it to be happy, strong and healthy. And if there is a lack you compensate with possession, with money, security…because you cannot guarantee health, happiness and strength.
Breathing brings about…it changes the chemistry toward the nature has meant us to be.
We are really down because we think we are superior to nature. We dress up all the time. we actually disconnect ourselves from nature because there is no stimulation. It’s a neutral zone. So the body gets weakened. The brain body connection gets weakened. Oxygen is less because there is no stimulation.
Nature did a perfect job, until we began to screw it up. Sometimes you gotta go back to the way nature has meant us to be.What if You Stopped Thinking All the Time? – Wim Hof, The Iceman
