A few years ago I was taking some classes at Moody’s Theological Seminary. One day a professor asked, “If something becomes the norm in one’s society or culture does it make it right?” What are your thoughts to this question?

In scripture, Genesis 2:7 says, “The Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” In his book, Just Breathe: Mastering Breathwork for Success in Life, Love, Business and Beyond, Dan Brule shares that it was this piece of scripture awakening a passion in him to become an expert in breathwork. It is Brule who goes against the cultural norms and is helping people see the importance of breathing and yawning. He states, “Yawning is a natural breathing technique that will improve your overall health and well-being. It energizes you, helps with sleep, mood and anxiety, and it discharges stress and tension.”

So, why do you believe what you believe? Have you been raised to think yawning is rude when it is actually what our bodies are meant to do to improve health? What other cultural norms are you following that may be hindering your performance or keeping you from becoming the best you can be? Check out our video below explaining a little more on why CES does the uncommon things to produce the uncommon results and wants you to become the best you can be. HOOYAH!
