Breathing incorrectly can have detrimental effects on your sleep, metabolism, inflammation, and even your lifespan, but what is the correct way to breathe, why is evolution working against us so we breathe worse over time, and what exercise can you use to train your body to subconsciously breathe correctly?   What to Listen For Introduction – 0:00 How did James Nestor become so focused on breathing? How is evolution working against our breathing?
