Since doing a bunch of reading about breathing a while ago, I’ve found myself doing extra-deep breaths from time to time (for eg when I get up to go to pee). And maybe it’s a placebo or something but I do feel more alert or less lethargic. Too early to be anything meaningful
So I’ve done some casual reading but haven’t gone super in-depth, and here is a totally kooky amateur thought that’s probably completely wrong:

It’s possible to breathe more than not, right?

A day of deep breathing is a day of literally *more* breathing than a day of shallow...
We know that the body naturally falls into homeostasis, and severe hyperventilation and hypoventilation are both bad

But what happens when it’s mild? What does a 3-5% hyperventilated state do, when your normie homeostasis... state is sedentary...? I have no idea what I’m saying
One thing I do remember from past reading - the symptoms of cigarette withdrawal, ie cigarette cravings, in relation to blood sugar (?) are remarkably similar to altitude sickness - ie there might be something to the smoker’s joke of “I’m going out to get some air”
Found some old notes! Love it when Past Visa wrote stuff down

Everything here is probably wrong to varying degrees of wrongness
Better explanation of how smokers use cigarettes to self-regulate blood sugar levels

If low blood sugar feels like not enough oxygen... can excess oxygen... diminish feelings of low blood sugar...? I’m guessing probably not,,, but, whyquit.com/joel/Joel_03_2…
Cute thought: fuel and air... your brain is like a furnace! You need the right amount of fuel and the right amount of air, too much or too little of either and you’re gonna have a bad time
