On one occasion, the Buddha said to the monks this:
"No other form do I know, O monks, that so persists in obsessing the mind of a man as the form of a woman. The form of a woman persists in obsessing the mind of a man.
moments in life are shared in sickness and in health, these moments can all be joyful. we offer our thoughts for those who suffer. but it is possible to offer instead our breath in those who need healing. by breathing for ourselves around those we love, they can benefit from our vital energy when they are weak. proximity doesn't matter in love or interbeing or intention. breathing strengthens our connection with the I and All.
