Many people are tired after talking or experience shortness of breath when they speak. Why does this happen and can you do anything about it?
Dr. Buteyko unearthed this mystery: he discovered that excessive breathing, especially through the mouth, leads to the loss of CO2 in the lungs, which is our vital energy. Struggling to maintain its homeostasis, the body activates various compensatory mechanisms, primarily breathing difficulties but also others. This is why teachers, actors, singers, politicians, and public speakers often suffer from asthma, COPD, fatigue, high blood pressure and even insomnia.
If your energy levels waiver during a period of time where you are talking a lot or you feel drained after a long conversation, there is a reason and it is connected to your breathing!
