4, 7, 8 Breathing

March 15, 2018

 

Called the ‘4-7-8’ method, it has been pioneered by the US sleep expert Dr Andrew Weil who claims that the technique works by calming the mind and relaxing the muscles.

 

Start the ‘4-7-8’ method with these steps:

 

1. Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound.

 

2. Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count

of four.

 

3. Hold your breath for a count of seven.

 

4. Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of eight.

 

5. This is one breath. Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three more times for a total of four breaths

 

This can help you get to sleep at nights, it can help with headaches if practised. I find it is best to use this first thing in the morning and jsut before bed to help slow the mind and processes down.
