Integrative medicine specialist at Arizona State University Andrew Weil spoke in a material on his website about a way to help you fall asleep quickly. He noted that if you woke up at night, or even suffer from insomnia, then the breathing technique “4-7-8” will help.
It is as follows. First, you need to slowly inhale through the nose for 4 seconds, then hold your breath for 7 seconds and exhale smoothly for 8 seconds. “You should repeat this sequence until you fall asleep,” Veil noted.
This technique will help fight stress. In addition, the specialist advised not to consume caffeine or eat before going to bed, turn off all gadgets and get rid of annoying noises.
