Sorry it’s been a while since I posted a breathing break. Hopefully, you’ve all been breathing without me!😜
.
Let’s take a moment together now to focus on three long, deep breaths, reminding us of the importance of rib kinematics for better breathing and, consequently, better movement, posture and overall well being. Try it with me:
.
Take 3 breaths with your hands resting on your lower ribs, focused on rib movement horizontally—not vertically:

INHALE FOR A COUNT OF 5, feeling your lower ribs move ⬅️OUT➡️.
EXHALE FOR A COUNT OF 7, feeling your lower ribs move ➡️IN⬅️ .
Slight Pause.
.
Inhale through your nose to benefit from the nitroc oxide (vasodilator produced by paranasal sinuses).
Exhale out of your mouth or nose—whichever feels more comfortable for you and enables you to best control and elongate each exhalation. I generally exhale out of my nose during my breathing practice but demo it through my mouth in the videos so it is easier for you to perceive when I transition from inhale to exhale.
.
Remember, money is in the exhale💲!!
Work on getting ALL of the air out, using your core (namely obliques & TVA) to bring your ribs in, back and down. Although you’ll feel some serious activation in your core, conversely, you should feel upper traps, neck, shoulders and pecs relax. An optimally performed exhale creates the space (zone of apposition—known as the “ZOA” to my PRI friends) necessary for your diaphragm to dome and relax up inside your ribcage—priming it for the next inhale (so you don’t compensate by pulling with all those chronically overworked upper-body muscles we’re trying to inhibit).
.
Breathing is a super power💥.
Use it to your advantage to enhance every aspect of your life from your mobility, strength and endurance to your mood, rest & recovery.

Same me- different days. Something Peter and I have realized over the years is that we really need to make the most of each day. So, some days, you’re feeling like a conqueror, and the next day you’re not. So... soak up the moments when you feel well, and soak up each day, no matter what it holds, because you never know what tomorrow will be, or if there will be a tomorrow. Seriously though- that is one of the things that having a terminal illness has gifted me with-perspective and permission to live each day like it’s my last. And also to realize that life isn’t made up of all big, glorious moments. Sometimes life is quiet, and dull, and monotonous and hard. So, keep pushing through, soak up the amazing moments, and keep on choosing joy along the way. #thisisliving #thefreylife #ichoosejoy #ichoosecontentment #cysticfibrosis #breathingisablessing

It has been a challenge to get back to my normal workout routine. Rebuilding my strength and fighting against fatigue has been difficult but I'm pushing through. #bloodclotsurvivor #pulmonaryembolism #bloodclotssuck #breathingisablessing

A little thickness never killed nobody. •I’m happy with a little weight gain. •I am enjoying my new life style. •I train hard to look the way I do. •I don’t compare myself to anyone. •I’m blessed to do what I do for a living. •I’m thankful for my daily blessings.
These are the things I tell myself on the daily. Don’t take life for granted! If you’re reading this you are blessed. #StayInYourLane #BreathingIsABlessing #StopComplaining #LoveLife #humpday🐫 #booty🍑 #conditioning #staystrong #stayactive

The end result! It was fun to paint tonight! Did you know that Peter and I have an online shop? This print will be listed there (link in bio) tomorrow(actually it’s already listed :) But I want to give a few prints away tonight! So, leave a comment and answer this question... what do you imagine is inside those windows, if you were to walk up and peer in... ok, maybe that sounds a little creepy? Haha. I imagine like a sweet little cottage inside and maybe a little grandma making cookies? So now I’m imagining peering through a window and spying on a grandma... good thing we are just talking about a painting! Haha. Ready, set, GO! #thefreylife #watercolor #enjoythemoment #enjoythesimplethings #thankful #breathingisablessing

The first day back to work after #springbreak and whew, what a day! I’m exhausted after getting in late last night and my body still being on west coast time. I feel like it takes me a full week to recover from vacation lol Does anyone else feel this way? Luckily, this time I spent my 4.5 hours on the plan doing some content planning and finished up some designs so although today was crazy busy, I was able to breathe💁🏽 ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #femaleentrepreneurs #femalebusinessowners #passionista #inspiredaily #logoinspiration #logodesigner #passion #womeninbusiness #passiontoprofit #smallbusinessowner

So I've been MIA with a terrible respiratory infection. It's a long story but I may be developing asthma and hearing loss but I'm positive that the treatment I'm doing is going to work. I've been pretty good with my food but yesterday I did give in and had hot crossed buns and chocolate. I'm only human and now it's back to normal. Honestly after a cheat like yesterday what I'd like to do is a day of fasting and fasted exercise but I can't as I need to take all these meds, and can not do so on an empty stomach. Nor can I excercise until I can breath properly 😂😂😂 happy chocolate hangover day peeps 💜

The triggers for asthma are many & varied se are four common indoor offenders
Dust Mites feed off of our dead skin cells😝. They’re found in our carpet/rugs and bedding
Dust Mite droppings 💩become a part of our household dust Yikes!
************************************
Indoor Mold is everyone’s nightmare and for asthmatics could mean trips to the emergency 😷
Bathrooms, kitchens and basements are common hideouts for mold. Remember to reduce moisture w/dehumidifiers and use air purifiers to keep indoor air breathable
**************************************
Dander skin cells from animals including small pets like gerbils & birds 🐦 can bring the
Drama to those lungs. Make a point to frequently bathe pets often, yep birds and hamsters can too be wiped down😁. Reptiles, and fish are alternatives for pets without the dander Issues
**************************************
Please don’t smoke 🚭 it’s harmful to everyone but especially those with lung issues. It can even be a cause for early childhood asthma! Even smoke filled clothing can trigger an attack...
*************************************************
Take steps to better breath!

Take time everyday to be grateful for everything that you have. You can always have more, but you could also have less. " Thank you" is #powerful ❤️

Today is #WorldAsthmaDay.

Asthma causes swelling of the airways. This results in narrowing of the airways that carry air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Allergens or irritating things entering the lungs trigger asthma symptoms. Symptoms include trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly. -About 24 mil Americans have asthma (7.4% adults & 8.6% of children).
-Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children. It is also the top reason for missed school days.
-Asthma causes almost 2 mil emergency room visits, 14 mil doctor visits, & 439,000 hospital stays each year.
-Each day, ten Americans die from asthma, and and in 2014, 3,651 people died from asthma. Many of these deaths are avoidable with proper treatment and care.
The annual cost of asthma is about $56 billion.
Direct costs were nearly $50.1 billion. Hospital stays were the largest part of these costs. Indirect costs, like lost pay from illness or death, were $5.9 bil.
-In 2013, it accounted for more than 13.8 million missed school days.

Where does my sense of purpose to empower others not only to survive, but to live and thrive in mind body and spirits originate from, you might ask? I will share more on the website, but one reason is: I was very blessed to survive the Tsunami in Phuket Thailand in December 2004 whilst on the beach when the wave hit, and since then I have been more mindful than ever of the value of each second and day … Me and my 2 sisters were the only ones to survive that particular beach. This sunset picture was taken in April 2009, when I first returned to the island 4 years after the tsunami. ☀️🌙⭐️🌜🙏🙏 ☀️🌙⭐️🌜
I developed an acute awareness that everything is impermanent, that everything and everyone is precious. The "normal" life we take for granted is fragile, and thus not really normal. Even in the most breath-taking places in our beautiful planet, when one feels in heaven and safe, everything can actually happen, in the blink of an eye. 🌿🍃
Shinkoh Ishikawa, a Buddhist monk in Japan said, after the Fukushima tsunami : "I hope people understand that death is not the end of one's life, but a revolving step where lives meet again." Buddhists around the world teach that life in this moment is both infinitely valuable and the only life we have. 🌿 Thich Nhat Hanh said, when asked about the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan: "An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our lives. It helps us remember that what's most important is to love each other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have died: We can live in such a way that they can feel they are continuing to live in us, more mindfully, more profoundly, more beautifully, tasting every minute of life available to us, for them.” 🌿🍃🙏💙 Living even more fully … the promise I made to myself, after that unforgettable Boxing Day 🙏💙💚🍀 #innerpeace #Namaste #thailand #tsunami #wisdom #buddhism #mantra #meditation #grateful #live #memories #instamood #carpediem #lifelesson #phuket #activelife #style #deartomyheartforever #livelife #everysecondcounts #breathingisablessing #enjoythemoment

More than often We lose sight of what's the True meaning of life. Even though I feel like I do ok with that I'm still human so growth is always welcomed. Every second of life I AM ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR AND HONORED SO I USUALLY TELL MYSELF THAT "I AM BLESSED TO BE BREATHING!" REMEMBER THE GIFT OF LIFE IS A PRIVILEGE AND A GIFT FROM GOD. CHERISH IT WHILE YOU ARE GRANTED IT BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A PRECIOUS POSSESION!!!! THE GOAL IS SIMPLY TO LEAVE AN IMPACT THAT CAN RID ALL NEGATIVE ENERGY, IDEAS, AND CONTINUE GROWING THAT POSITIVE ENERGY.... (TEAMRC FOREVER!!!!) A FEAR OF MISSING OUT ON ALL THE BS IN THIS WORLD WILL SET YOU BACK FURTHER AWAY FROM THAT TRUE MEANING OF LIFE AND WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT!!!! #WEBUZZIN #TEAMRC #INTEGRITY #LIFEISAGIFT #THANKYOUGOD #BREATHINGISABLESSING ✌️#WORLDPEACE
