Free medicine

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day
is the rest we take between two deep breaths.
-Etty Hillesum

Living in Osaka is like never turning off the tv. Total stimuli 24-7. 3,5 million people wandering around in daytime and 2 millions outside work hours. Everybody gets affected physically, emotionally and behaviourally.

But we can choose to not let all the people, traffic and densely built up area (skyscrapers, high rising buildings and owner occupied houses) affect us. We can take the best medicine ever.

Inhale new fresh energy.
Exhale out tension, anger, pain, anxiety...

If we follow the high speed rate from Monday to Sunday and don´t manage to relax properly we may get problems like depression, headaches, under- and overeating, insomnia...

When we allow our body to relax we release everything what has been built up by stress. We let the immune system recover. Relaxation increases the right brain activity. The mind gets calmer and clearer. The best of all. We are our own pharmacy. Always open and no prescription needed. And its free.

Deep inhale 1-2-3-4
Slow exhale 4-3-2-1


  1. Så rätt! Andningen är allt.

  2. The first important step towards a healthy life.
