If science proved that you could get all these benefits from a single pill, you wouldn’t be so foolish as to refuse it. Right?  Surprisingly, many people do that everyday without thinking through what they’re missing.  The only difference is that it’s not a pill.  It’s Fresh Air.


As I lay here in bed at 4:30 in the morning, thinking, and praising our Creator, Jesus, for life and all His help in mine, I’m laying on my side, with my face toward a small RV window 10 “ wide about a foot and a half away.  I have it open 1/2 inch.  That small air-stream is so fresh, clean, and cool, it moves me to suck it in.  As I do, new vitality, energy, initiative, surge through my awaking body and mind.  


After a short breath or two, I try a long deep one.  What a super-charge!  a great “upper! “

Have you ever felt a bit panicky because you couldn’t get a deep breath?  You wanted it, desperately needed it, but seemed unable to get it,  never could feel satisfied.


I’ve found the secret with many others:  Exhale first.  Clear out all that old stale carbon dioxide that fills 2/3 of your lungs most the time.  Push it out by pulling your stomach muscles in, and letting the old be squeezed out.  Even bending over will help.  Now, try that deep breath.  You’ll find the old satisfaction coming back.  You’ll get that refreshment you want. 


Another way to get it is by mild muscle movements or even stretching muscles a few times.  These  cause your body to naturally desire more oxygen.  Action creates body hunger for air and deeper breathing.  And fresh air makes your body, mind, and spirit feel better.


But lack of enough continuous oxygen can cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Lethargy, Headache, Cold hands & feet, blue fingertips and lips, mental fog, and mold growth producing toxins like carbon monoxide that further rob us of oxygen.



The worst antagonists for oxygen are air pollutants in homes, vehicles, buildings, heating systems, cities, dehydration from coffee, alcohol, many food and drug chemicals, body-restricting tight clothing, windows all closed to outdoor air, and shallow breathing habits. Research has found that the air in most homes is more polluted than outdoor city air.  That’s not good for us.


How about your bedroom window?  Do you want to wake up with more energy, a clearer head, and improving health every morning?  Try leaving your bedroom window open only a 1/2 inch in these colder months of winter, spring, and fall.  And, do the same in the living room.  This will circulate a small but vital fresh air flow through your home to cleanse and re-energize you with its incredible health benefits.  That’s what God had in mind when He made it for you and me in the beginning. Let’s take full advantage of His gift.
