Harvard Wellness Practitioner Reveals A Trick To Fall Asleep In Less Than 1 Minute

Having trouble sleeping? This breathing trick can help you fall asleep in less than a minute!

The method was developed by Harvard-educated, wellness practitioner Dr. Andrew Weil, who specializes in breathing, meditation, and how it can be used to counteract stress.

How does this method work?

Once you develop this breathing technique by practicing it every day, twice a day, it will be a very useful tool that you will always have with you. Use it whenever anything upsetting happens – before you react. Use it whenever you are aware of internal tension. Use it to help you fall asleep. Use it to deal with food cravings. Great for mild to moderate anxiety, this exercise cannot be recommended too highly. Everyone can benefit from it.

Just breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold it for 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. This slows down your heart rate and it also releases chemicals in your brain that soothe you. By using this breathing method, you counteract the natural effects of adrenaline.

When you first begin, you may feel a bit uncomfortable, but as you continue, you will feel very relaxed, your heart rate slow and your mind clear.

Give it a try tonight, it worked for me yesterday!

    Substitute 16 for the 7, apply the deep breathing technique: bottom, middle, top of the lungs in a rhythmic sequence timed in harmony with the heart, the marriage of the moment. Yogic Pranayama exercise.

    Powerful exercise.
