Step One is Air
Without food, a person will die in weeks. Without water, a person will die in days. Without air, a person will die in minutes.
There is an innate need not only to breathe but to breathe in clean air. This is an important step which sustains life. One must ask, "How do I breath? Is my breathing just routine, preformed unconsciously and usually shallow?" Most of us have never given any thought to the answers to these question because it has never been explained to us the reasons why we should breathe differently.
Yes, with a little concentration, discipline and lots of practice, breathing deeply and rhythmically will come to be a regular occurrence in our life. Then, we will develop our breathing capacity and find that regular deep breathing will regenerate our body, help cure diseases, and provide vitality.
Sometimes you just need to take a break, step outside for a breath of fresh air and while you are breathing in deeply, consider where you are on your path of life. Too, think about the future and the wonderful promised paradise God has in store for all of his faithful servants.
Air is the most essential element needed to sustain life. Overall health of your body and mind in a great degree depends upon the amount of pure, fresh air breathed.
For all the cells of our body to function properly, they need four things: oxygen, water, nutrition and cleansing. Even though you body cells can exist on decreased levels of water, nutrition and cleansing, without oxygen a cell will die in three minutes.
Fresh Air, Where?
In this busy world, most tend to spend all of their time inside and rarely gain the health benefits of spending time outdoors.
The main problem today, is finding genuine fresh air to breathe into your body so that you can feel healthy and revitalized. Fresh air is that which is free from common pollutants found in most cities in the outdoor air.
Staying inside where the air is recirculated over and over by the air conditioning or heater, a person often forces his body to breath in stale air.
Even though you may think that just heading outside of your home is giving you access to fresh air, this often is not the case.
Most air pollution is man-made and usually comes from the combustions of fuels, found outdoors in large quantities in urban areas due to the increased populations living in such areas.
To acquire the benefits of real fresh air and breathe in pollutant free air, you must leave the city and travel to an area where there is a large population of trees. However, if you can not get out of town, try to visit a large park or open space nearby. These spots often provide the fresh clean air that you need to receive the benefits fresh air provides.
Also, it is important to recognize that indoor air pollution can be just as much a problem for our health. Indoor air pollution can be cause by inefficient fuel combustion from things like cooking, heating, lighting, pollutants from building materials, cleaning products and many other things.
