There’s a simple exercise being promoted by Harvard educated Dr. Andrew Weil which is believed to help you get sleep fast.

Below is an excerpt of an article that tackles more about the simple exercise you need to do:

4-7-8 Breathing Exercise – How to Perform It

  • Do the exercise in a position that is comfortable for you: sitting, standing, lying. If you’re sitting, keep your back straight.
  • Put the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth and keep it there for the duration of the exercise.
  • Breathe out completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound.
  • Breathe in through your nose silently to a count of 4.
  • Hold your breath and count to 7.
  • Breathe out through your mouth, making a whoosh sound and count to 8.
  • This is one cycle.
  • Repeat the cycle 4 times. You might fall asleep before you finish the final repetition.

 

Note: Exhalation is twice as long as inhalation. It’s important that you maintain the ratio of 4-7-8 throughout the practice. Adjust the counting to your breathing. You might need to start by counting faster, and then progress to a slower rhythm as you get used to the routine. The speed is not important; it’s the ratio that brings the positive effects.

 

The said exercise does not only help you fall asleep fast but can also relieve your stress. So, do this exercise and enjoy a sound sleep.
