I was recently asked by one of you, my dear followers, to make a tutorial explaining the Wim Hof Breathing Method❄️☯️
Here’s what you need to do:
1) Move to the Arctic
2) Go into a forest. Avoid hungry bears, wolves, and ferocious rodents.
3) Take your clothes off! You don’t need them. Let the cold be your teacher!
4) Jokes aside, this is how you ACTUALLY do Wim’s breathwork.
Start with 30 deep breaths. Breathe in as much air as possible, then let go. Don’t try to push the air out, leave something in your lungs. Make sure you relax as much as possible, there’s no rush. These 30 breaths will get rid of the acidic CO2 out of your system and oxygenate your body, making your inner environment much more alkaline. This will enable you to hold your breath much longer than usually, which is the next step.
After the 30 breaths, inhale and let go one last time. That’s when you stop breathing. You will be able to hold it for 1 – 3 min, so just relax, clear your mind and be present. As your oxygen levels go down, your brain will start releasing beneficial hormones into your system. Remember, you will be just fine, because your nner environment is so alkaline now.
Once you feel the slightest need to breathe again, take a deep breathe in and hold it for 10-15 seconds. Then breathe out. That was one round.
Repeat as many times as you feel comfortable with and remember never to force anything.
Remember, never try to force anything with this type of breathwork. Do not try to prove yourself anything, this is not an ego game. If you have any underlying health conditions, please consult this with your physician.
5) Go run a marathon in your shorts at – 20 degrees, like Wim himself😆
