Did you know that May is the Asthma and Allergy Awareness month?
And also that
 the first Tuesday of May is the Asthma Awareness Day set by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA)! Which would be May 7th for this year.

So, let’s use this as a reminder to check up our CP value again, and spend some time to review the Buteyko reduced breathing exercises. A couple nights of mouth taping would also be perfect for the theme! Just to make sure that the bad old habit of over breathing isn’t coming back again.
