Ready for a biology lesson? Okay, we promise to keep it quick. Your digestive system (all nine meters of it) breaks food down into nutrients which we then use for energy, growth and cell repair. As you can imagine, it’s important we take good care of it - so that it can take good care of us.

Here’s a quick guide to keeping your gut in tip top condition.

Start to lengthen and deepen your inhales and exhales as you go, leaving a little pause at the top and bottom of each inhale and exhale. Make this a daily exercise to cement the habit, and enjoy the benefits!
