How I Learned to Be Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

 Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Ben Aldridge.  Several years ago, I found myself in a dark place. I was struggling immensely with severe and debilitating anxiety and felt that I was losing control of my mind. I was having back-to-back panic attacks and honestly thought that I was dying. It was a truly terrifying experience and I felt overwhelmed with fear. My lack of education on mental health at the time meant that I didn’t understand what was happening to me. This made everything e...

Relearning to Breathe

As I noted in yesterday’s post about learning to breathe differently, I’m leaning into a different way of thinking about breathing and working on changing old habits to see how The Oxygen Advantage approach affects me. This morning I went for my second nose-breathing run with a similar format like I tried yesterday. I started with a 15-minute walk (all nose breathing), and then I was able to run for 3 minutes with nose breathing before dropping back to walking for a few minutes. That’s longer...

They may have tapped into some universal teenage feelings, but rarely inspired further thought along the lines of “Hmm, I wonder what—or who—inspired that.” Dutch station NPO Radio 2’s interview series Top 2000 a gogo lifts the veil. Each entry reveals the origin story of a well known song. The late Bill Withers, above, intimated that every woman he’d even been involved with thought "Ain’t N...
