9 Amazing Facts About Breathing

A few thought-provoking facts about something we all do thousands of times a day: breathe.

  1. The average person breathes in the equivalent of 13 pints of air every minute and takes 17,000 breaths per day.
  2. “Breathing Air” is actually not a good description of what happens when we breathe. Air is made up of almost 79% nitrogen21% oxygen, and small amounts of elements like helium, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen.
  3. Inhaled air is made up of 16% oxygen, 4% carbon dioxide, and the same 79% nitrogen. Our lungs swap around 4-5% oxygen for carbon dioxide.
  4. Our lungs exhale almost half a litre (0.42 L) of water every single day. Factor this number into your hydration requirements.
  5. Most people can hold their breath for a maximum of 1-2 minutes but in 2010 Stig Severinsen from Denmark held his breath during a free dive for 22 minutes. That’s the power of controlled breathing.
  6. The lungs are the biggest waste removal engine in the body, accounting for the removal of 70% of body wastein the form of carbon dioxide in the air we exhale.
  7. Psychologists have found that breathing practice is effective in fighting anxiety, depression, and stress. Physiological evidence has indicated that even a single breathing practice significantly reduces blood pressure.
  8. Mouth breathing can actually change your face. Researchers found differences in the facial developments of children that breath through their mouths compared to children that nose breathe.
  9. Your emotions change the way you breathe. Research has shown that our breathing pattern can influence the emotion we experience.
