4-7-8

It's called the "4-7-8" method and people who have been using it say it really does work. It's a breathing trick that you really should try for yourself...

How It Works...

Apparently, the chemical-like reaction this breathing pattern has on our brains causes our heart rates to slow to that of someone who is about to drift off to sleep. Normally, when you're anxious or stressed, you're breathing is shallower and so you don't take in enough oxygen to give you that sleepy feeling. So, by forcing your body to breath slower, you're giving it that chance.

Sweet dreams.
