In today’s hectic world, it seems everywhere you turn there are people who are stressed out, burned out, and exhausted. You may be one of them. In situations like this it is important that you take time out to restore your energy or run the risk of creating both mental and physical issues.
Unless you’re one of the lucky people who begin each day not knowing what lies ahead, you’re probably held hostage by an unvarying routine. You get up at the same time, commute by the same mode of transport along the same route to the same office where you spend eight or nine hours doing the same kind of work each day. It’s hard not to get bored and frustrated by a life where each day is the same as the last. If you feel like you’re stuck in a similar rut and are yearning for a change, you can do to break the monotonous routine and rejuvenate yourself.

Feeling short of breath is one of the most common symptoms of heart failure. In the early stages of the condition many people feel breathless after exercising or when performing more strenuous activities such as mowing the lawn.
But if the condition advances, feeling breathless can become more common during everyday activities like climbing the stairs or taking a shower, and even resting. Lying flat can also suddenly bring on shortness of breath for many people, interrupting their sleep and sometimes leaving them feeling anxious and tired.
Breathlessness (also known as dyspnoea) refers to the sensation of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. It is an extremely common symptom but can be both distressing and frightening for patients and carers. Breathlessness may occur in conjunction with other symptoms such as cough, chest pain and fever. It can be caused by a variety of conditions affecting the lungs, heart and/or general circulation. In these cases, breathlessness occurs due to a fall in the levels of oxygen in the blood, increased levels of carbon dioxide or just difficulty expanding the lungs.
The way you breathe is the way you live. Breathing is absolutely essential to life, but it’s often overlooked as a necessity for good health. Full, free breathing is one of the most powerful keys to enhancing physical, emotional, and spiritual well being.
The majority cancer patients also experience some degree of shortness of breath, even if the primary cancer did not arise in the lung. You should consult your doctor if you experience shortness of breath or related symptoms as it may be the sign of a serious underlying disease.
