Most everyone is grasping at straws to get a better night’s sleep in these crazy times, but it could be as simple as a controlled breathing exercise. Get ready for the 4-7-8 method.
- Breathe in through your nose for four seconds.
- Hold your breath for seven seconds.
- Exhale for eight seconds, making a “whoosh” sound through your pursed lips.
- Repeat up to four times.
The more consistently you do it, the better it works, and it can also help beat down your anxiety. (Inc.)
