#36alive 340: Biohack With The Box Breath

Biohacking has been a huge buzzword throughout 2017, which isn’t surprising since biohacking enables us to find the quickest, most effective way to change the body and mind. In 2017, everyone’s busy, and everyone wants the quickest, easiest way to do everything.

Breathing is indeed easy for many of us, and changing how we breathe can have incredible physical and psychological effects in a short amount of time. Today, we’re sharing a tip straight from Dave Asprey; a bullet proof coffee advocate and biohacker.

Box Breathing

“Box breathing is a super low-tech hack to get you from a stress, flight-or-fight state to a more relaxed rest-and-digest state. You can practice this anytime, anywhere without looking too crazy. You simply inhale to a count of 5, hold for a count of 5, exhale to a count of 5 and hold for a count of 5. Repeat until your heart rate has slowed and you’re in a more relaxed state”.
