If you’re ready to prioritize your lung health in 2023, we have exciting news. Your next purchase of resB® will unlock a 1-year membership to Breathwrk, a breathing app recently selected as the Best App for Personal Growth in the Google Play 2022 Awards.
Breathwrk is so popular because it offers a comprehensive library of science-based breathing exercises for people of all levels. Moreover, they also provide guided classes and educational content. It’s a one-stop shop for all things breathing.
In this article, we’ll discuss the Breathwrk app and why it’s the perfect “habit stack” for your resB® supplement routine.
Why Breathing Exercises?
We’ve written extensively about the benefits of breathing exercises for your lung and overall health. But as a quick motivational reminder, the regular use of breathing exercises has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, improve heart health, lower inflammation, balance the nervous system, improve sleep, enhance focus, and boost energy.
Adding them into your routine benefits your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and Breathwrk makes it easy.
The Core of the Breathwrk App: Breathing Exercises
When you open the Breathwrk app, you have all the best science-backed breathing exercises at your fingertips. If you’ve heard of a breathwork exercise, there’s a good chance you’ll find it in the app.
They’ve organized the exercises into the following categories: Calming, Energizing, Nighttime, Perform, or Health. Then, the name of each breathing exercise illustrates its intended effects. For example, the “Sleep” breath—which uses the 4-7-8 breath made famous by Andrew Weil, MD—is the perfect technique to help you fall asleep faster.
Flip into the “Calming” category, and you’ll find the Auto Relaxer breath. As the name implies, its goal is to help you relax quickly. To do that, it guides you through the “ Physiological Sigh ” made popular by Stanford neuroscientist Andrew Huberman, Ph.D.
In the health category, they have specific exercises for individuals with respiratory conditions like asthma and COPD. They also have exercises to test your lung capacity, so you can track your progress towards lung health goals!
Finally for each breathing exercise, they offer an Overview, Recommended Use, and the Science that went into developing that particular breath.
It’s a simple yet comprehensive way to discover the perfect breath for your current needs.
Breathwrk Guided Classes
If you prefer more hands-on guidance, Breathwrk has you covered there, too. They offer guided classes from breathwork experts from around the world. You can learn to “Calm Your Nerves” in 15 minutes with David Jackson, a Master Instructor of the Oxygen Advantage®. Or you can “Fall Asleep Fast” (in 7 minutes, to be exact) with Terrell Carter.
If you’ve never done breathwork before, these short classes are an accessible way to get started.
Habit-Stack Your Breathwrk Practice
As you can see, Breathwrk Pro is a perfect complement to maximize your breathing benefits from resB®. They can also serve as your daily resB® reminder, as you can set up push notifications in the Breathwrk app!
To make the most of this offer, use what you learned in our previous habit stacking blog to make Breathwrk and resB® part of your daily routine.
If you want to use Breathwrk as your resB® reminder:
- Set up a morning and evening exercise schedule in the Breathwrk app
- Turn on notifications, so your phone will remind you when it’s time to breathe
- Grab a glass of water and a capsule of resB® to go with!
For those of us already taking your resB® every day, you’ll find the habit-stacking formula also works the other way around:
- Action Prompt: Taking resB®
- Desired Action: Using the Breathwrk App
- Formula: After I take my morning resB®, then I will perform 2 minutes of breathwork using my free Breathwrk subscription.
I recommend starting with the “Calm” Breath. It’s the most scientifically backed breathing technique for overall better health. Then, once you establish the habit, explore the app until you find the perfect breathwork routine for you. Work toward a goal of 10-20 minutes a day for the most benefits.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this partnership. Here’s to better lung health in 2023!
