A Simple Exercise To Use To Fall Asleep Quickly


There’s nothing worse than laying bed, staring at the ceiling, desperately willing yourself to get to sleep but the more you try – the more awake you are.

Step in this simple and easy trick – which I’ve used for about a year now and find it easy to get you to sleep in a quickly.

The “4-7-8” breathing trick, also known as the “relaxing breath” is said to have a chemical-like effect on our brains, slowing your heartrate and soothing you right to sleep.

How do you do it? Simple

Breathe in through your nose for four seconds.

Hold your breath for seven seconds.

The breathe out for eight seconds.

Simply repeat the pattern until you’re asleep – like myself, most people report it doesn’t take long.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a try! And let me how you go & I’ll post the results on this site.

Remember to be as kind to yourself as possible, thanks for staying open enough to try it.
