Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, was published in May 2020 and quickly became a New York Times bestseller. It already has over 7,000 reviews on Amazon. Chapter one is entitled ‘The Worst Breathers in the Animal Kingdom.’ That’s us. The author, James Nestor, argues that poor breathing is harming us. He therefore teaches us to breathe better to be better.
The author of Psalm 39 also wants us to breathe better to be better. He teaches us a simple breathing exercise that will not only help us be better but die better. Breathe better to be better and die better.
