Publisher's Summary

When you get the right balance in life, you can do amazing things: create, perform, lead a team, build a great company, raise a family. But so often the scales tip, and we feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Michael Townsend Williams, an adman turned yoga teacher and mindfulness coach, is an advocate of 'welldoing' - leading a busy and productive life but not at the expense of our health and well-being. And key to this? Our breath.

The crucial link between mind and body, our breath reflects what we're dealing with at any given moment. It tells us when we're out of our depth.

With simple breathing exercises and elements from yoga, meditation and mindfulness, Do Breathe will help you to:

  • Reduce stress and increase productivity
  • Improve focus and workflow
  • Cultivate new good habits and drop the bad
  • Build courage and resilience.

Why not breathe yourself better?

What the critics say

"Great little book about something we do 600 million times in our life but rarely think about." (Michael Acton Smith)
"Perfect for anyone looking to learn how to breathe better, find peace and understand the basics of mindfulness. I, for one, could read this book on a monthly basis." (Lynchpin Media)

Not so much about breathing

I picked up this book because I wanted to know more about proper breathing and the science that backs it up. It quite literally talks about breathing basics at the beginning of book, then starts telling you how you should be organized, eats well, rest, takes breaks. There isn't much about breathing in the book. disappointed.

Here are the basics of breathing:

1. Breathe in and out through the nose
2. abdominal breathing instead of chest breathing
3. shorter inhale, longer exhale.

You don't need this book.

OUTSTANDING. VERY USEFUL!!! 10 STARS***

I AM IN MY LATE 60s and still work more than full time as a CPA and CFP for my practices in Phoenix. I am very critical of most programs but this one is a MUST!! I have been successful by working at it. So DON'T dislike this program because it is not an instant fix....you have to apply the exercises... You must commit yourself!!

NOT a book on breathing!

I listened to the sample which was about breathing but after purchasing the book not much more was mentioned on it. Instead the author throws out lists and lists of things to do—I ended up feeling overwhelmed and anxious which was the opposite of what I was looking for.
