Mid Week Musings #290
Teachings in the Hindu tradition suggest that the number of breaths we have is predetermined.
On average, a person at rest takes about 16 breaths per minute.
This means we breathe about 960 breaths an hour, 23,040 breaths a day, and 8,409,600 a year.
A person who lives to 80 will take about 672,768,000 breaths in a lifetime.
It’s not the number of breaths you take during your life but the number of times life takes your breath away,
Perhaps that’s worth reflecting upon
