Shut your mouth and irrigate!

What would your bumper sticker say? 
Today I decided mine would be 'Shut your mouth and irrigate'.  The first part is easy.  I hate extra noise.  Coming from a family of 8 and now with 3 children and 2 dogs of my own I need my quiet.  "Shut your mouth".  That's harsh.  In contention would be:
  • Shut your hole.  (for pervs)
  • Shut up.  (for mainstream meanies)
  • Zip it.  (for nerds)
"Shut your mouth" was a favorite of my Dad's.  It came out like schutttyerrmowwwth and he meant business.  With 6 children he needed his quiet too.  Like a lot of things to me, it is now funny and endearing.  For the record, I'd give anything to hear him say it again.

Okay.  Now, the irrigate part.

In Yoga the focus is always on the breath.  I now know through Bikram Yoga, Dr. Oz and Mary Jarvis that your breath is the best super-food on the planet.  In Jivamukti Yoga, which means "soul liberation," there is a whole section on cleansing your entrances and exits which includes nasal irrigation.  Jivamukti guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health and self-realization. No matter what style of yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen your practice and guide you further on the path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. Includes clear, dramatic black and white photographs.

I've owned this book for years. 
Don't tell anybody. 
Except for the photos with Goth Make-up and extra-long finger nails, I highly recommend it.

I'm going to shut my mouth and irrigate now.  I'll let you know how it goes. 
(I think I  have to open my mouth and do this.  But I promise to be real quiet.)
