The 5.5 Rule Will Change the Way You Breathe - Deepstash

When you breathe through your nose, you absorb more nitric oxide, which is one reason you can absorb 18 percent more oxygen than by mouth breathing.

“5.5-second inhales followed by 5.5-second exhales, which works out almost exactly to 5.5 breaths a minute. The results were profound, even when practiced for just five to ten minutes a day.”

  • Stop breathing through your mouth.
  • Breathe through your nose as much as you can — while you exercise, and especially while you sleep.
  • Apply the 5.5 rule by inhaling for 5.5-seconds followed by exhaling for 5.5-seconds.
