Difficulty sleeping is becoming more and more common here lately. We are being deprived of sleep can leave us unhealthy and cranky, luckily there is an easy fix for most cases.
We need at least six to eight hours of sleep a night usually, and if we do not get this we do not have the energy needed to function properly. Sleep loss can cause many different health issues including things like HBP (high blood pressure), heart failure, stroke, heart disease, and more. If you want to prevent these issues and get more sleep in the process I highly suggest you follow the instructions below.
Dr. Andrew Weil came up with this method and it is known as the “4-7-8” breathing technique. Using this technique you should be asleep within one whole minute! Enjoy!
- Breathe through the nose for 4 seconds
- Hold your breath for 7 seconds
- Release the air for 8 seconds
- Do this 3 times
This method is said to relax the body and calm your heart rate allowing you to sleep. Give it a try, you’ve got nothing to lose. For more on this watch the video below.
