Twenty Three Thousand Times a Day

DSC_8331

Yes, that’s right we breath in 23,000 breathes of air every day.  I haven’t counted them personally, but I did look it up online.  Imagine how many of those take place indoors.  In your home, in your apartment, in your car, in your office or place of employment, in your school, in a mall.  Just given the way we live our lives the answer has to be “the majority”.

So Mary wanted to remind us to embrace nature. She wants us to seek out those places where the air is as clean and clear as it can be.  Look for wide open spaces.  Look for wooded areas.  Any place where there is a lot of vegetation, or close to water.  Any place that has a natural filtration system.  Fill those lungs with the purity of fresh clean air.  Your body, your heart and your mind will thank you for it!

…And this is according to Mary!

  2. In “Talking to Trees” by Kathryn Sullivan, the author states that the air in old growth forests contains chemical compounds yet to be understood by science. This will in fact make you feel better, and may have other health benefits long overlooked and treated as myths. (The “mountain air” being good for you).
