This week's article from the Ergonomics site at BellaOnline.com deals with breathing. Although breathing may not seem directly related to ergonomics, it has a symbiotic relationship with good ergonomics. Good breathing helps you heal AND good posture helps your breathing.
As children, we breathe naturally. Over time,breathing becomes affected by our emotional states, our fitness level, and our general level of tension. Mindful breathing can be meditative and also help create good patterns that can permeate and energize our lives.
