World Breathing Day - February 3rd

In 2012 a Swedish health journalist, Susanne Hovenas, initiated World Breathing Day, which occurs on February 3rd every year.

In Sweden, the day is marked with a breathing conference.

"The aim is to combine current research with simple breathing exercises and tips for everyday life," Anders Olsson, a Swedish breathing educator, wrote in a 2015 newsletter article for members of the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association. "The events are targeted towards those who want to be inspired and get hands-on tips and knowledge about breathing in order to strengthen their health and well-being."
