by Steven Cash Nickerson, an excerpt from the new book BOOMERangs. Engaging the Aging Workforce in America, available on Amazon.
“Even though you’re 60, you can still be a lean, mean, working machine! Pay attention to how you breathe and practice breathing when you exercise. I study Systema, the Russian Martial Art that teaches breathing. Practice your breathing when you walk. Breathe in when you take a step and breathe out on the next. I can tell someone’s age by how they breathe and we all are aware of breathing – it is a subconscious “tell”. I highly recommend the book Let Every Breath… Secrets of the Russian Breath Masters, by Vladimir Vasiliev. I read it every few months and practice these exercises each day. People think I am 10 years younger and breathing is a key part of it.”
