Breathing tip from our reader Jose Alejandro

Got a helpful fact for you from our reader and supporter, Jose Alejandro Jr., He says, whenever you are working out or are out of breath it is important to breath with your stomach i.e diaphragm. Most people including myself usually just suck in air in a panic hoping to steady their heart rate. 
When you do that you are only using half of your lung capacity because you are actually squeezing your lungs restricting you air intake. Most times you are breathing with your chest minimizing effective air exchange.

Take ownership of your health!


Ladies and gentlemen, yes you guys too!! make sure you do a breast self exam every month!! The biggest misconception is that Breast Cancer is a "women's" disease. Breast Cancer is an equal opportunity stalker!
If you find ANYTHING that seems off, make an appointment to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible and insist on a mammogram! 
As the saying goes, it is better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.
Breast Cancer can spread quickly but, has a greater chance of being curable if it is diagnosed in the early stages.
