Mine de rien, la respiration à un effet majeur sur notre état interne, et par le fait même sur la nature de notre communication.
Prendre de longues et profondes respirations avant et pendant une discussion ou présentation vous permet de mieux contrôler et stabiliser votre état interne et vous aide à demeurer objectif et lucide.
"Breath is the bridge, which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Learn to practice breathing in order to regain composure of body and mind, to practice mindfulness, and to develop concentration and understanding."
-- Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Nobel Prize nominee, 1967
"The breath is a powerful tool...it creates a bridge between the subconscious and conscious mind, and connects the mind and the body. When you sit and breathe deeply, your physiology will change, and both your mind and your body will relax and become open. Breathing helps clear your head of the thoughts of the emotions and ego, and it allows you to get closer to your true self."
-- Carmen Harra, author
"Breathing is the FIRST place not the LAST place one should investigate when any disordered energy presents itself."
-- Sheldon Saul Hendler, MD Ph.D., Author, The Oxygen Breakthrough
"Nothing is more effective than a deep, slow inhale and release for surrendering what you can't control,"
-- Oprah Winfrey, television personality
"One way to break up any kind of tension is good deep breathing."
-- Byron Nelson, Golf Professional
"Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand."
-- Nancy Zi, author, classical singer, voice teacher
