Are you having trouble falling asleep? Counting sheep won’t do the trick?
Mr. Bean came up with that technique and I don’t know if someone still uses it.
Everything goes through a person’s mind when he is about to sleep. Sometimes you want to blow your head off.
It happens to me sometimes. The day has been perfect and when I’m just about to fall asleep, there are these thoughts that are not letting me float away in my dreams.
This is rare, though.
Some of you or your friends, often complain about problems like these. They can’t sleep, they can’t eat, and they don’t feel like doing anything.
If you ask me, I will tell you that physical activity will cure all this. When you are “wasted” you will sleep tight like a baby.
I even give advice to some people to a 30-minutes workout routine right before they go to sleep.
This is how you get your body working when it doesn’t feel like doing anything. You getting tired from the workout is the goal.
In fact, it will burn calories, get you fit, and a nice bath after that will relax and prepare you for a good night sleep.
That’s one side of the story.
Dr. Andrew Weil has revealed that everything is in calming yourself through breathing.
He specializes in breathing and he knows how you can benefit from it.
He came up with a special method for falling asleep in a minute.
By making this method a habit of yours, you will counterattack the natural effects of adrenaline rushing through your veins and mind when you are about to sleep.
It slows your heart rate and releases chemicals in your brain. Those chemicals are the reason for you not being able to fall asleep.
What’s the method?
The method is really simple. It will take few nights to master it.
- Breath through your nose for 4 seconds
- Hold your breath for 7 seconds
- Exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds
That’s it. Simple as one-two-punch.
When you first begin this method, you will feel like you are dying.
By continuing to do this every night, you will feel more and more relaxed every night.
Give it a try. Test it for a week or two. Come back in the comments section below and tell us if it works.
Everything is in the art of breathing.
This reminds me when I was taking swimming lessons. The trainer was telling me I need to master my breathing first.
The first month I never touched the pool. I didn’t even want to see it. I needed to calm down, learn how to breathe and then go in the water.
Luckily, I’m a fast learner.
As you can see, the art of breathing is all around us. Will you learn this routine?
It could be really helpful for those nights when you can’t fell asleep. Tell your friends about this.
