Dr. Andrew Weil has probably found a way how to fall asleep easily and end countless sleepless nights. Many have this problem, so if you are one of them go on and try the trick that Dr. Andrew discovered.
Yoga is what inspired Dr. Andrew to make “The 4-7-8 Breathing Exercise”. This exercise is very simple and easy and can be done where ever you want. No equipment is needed and won’t take long to be done.
“The 4-7-8 Breathing Exercise” Instructions:
1) Breathe out entirely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound.
2) Close your mouth and inhale gently through your nose to a count of four.
3) Hold your breath for a count of seven.
4) Exhale totally through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of eight.
5) This is one breath. Do the same for three more times for a total of four breaths.
What actually this practice does it lowers the heart rate and calms the mind. Dr. Andrew advises concentrating on keeping the ratio exact and inhaling/exhaling deeply every time.
Although it sounds very easy to be sure not to criticize it before trying it.
