You can fall asleep in just one minute – all you have to do is change the way you breathe.
Many of us know how frustrating it is to spend the night tossing and turning, unable to drift off.
And sometimes not even counting sheep, listening to the sound of rain or dousing our pillow in lavender spray helps.
The 4-7-8 method, also known as “relaxing breath”, can help people get to sleep in just one minute.
Rhythmic breathing is a core practice derived from Indian yogis who use it during meditation – and there’s a number of benefits.
Although the method is best known to help insomniacs, it can also help to calm over-stressed minds, manage anxiety as well as cravings and control anger responses by forcing your heartbeat to slow down.
The technique involves inhaling through your nose for four seconds, holding that breath for seven seconds and exhaling slowly for another eight seconds.
Then repeat until you drift off.
