I'm a breathing expert – how clenching your teeth can help you cool down in seconds during the summer heatwave | The Sun

WITH temperatures soaring to a staggering 40 degrees across the UK today, it's likely people will be affected by the heat in different ways.

While some indulge in a crisp glass of rosé or refreshing cider, for others, heat can be the trigger to an onset of unwanted symptoms – including dull, thumping headaches.


But according to one breathwork expert, there's no need to splash out on a top-of-the-range fan or pricey paddling pool to battle the scorching temperatures.

Instead, Stuart Sandeman has come up with the perfect solution to help reduce some of the tension headaches caused by hot weather in five easy steps.

In his debut book Breathe In, Breathe Out, which is out today, the peak performance coach details the inner workings of breathing and the powerful secrets hidden within this natural process.

Among them includes the "beat the heat" breath method which he claims is "perfect to help cool and soothe the mind" when used in conjunction with rehydration.
