GOING TO SLEEP FAST
You are tired and want to sleep but you can’t. What do you do? Do you know how to use some strategies to go to sleep fast?
Here are some tips to help you out.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Take a few seconds and relax your mind and body.
Step 2: Let all your air out of your lungs through your mouth.
Step 3: Now close your mouth and breathe in quietly through your nose to the count of 4.
Step 4: Hold your breath for a count of 7.
Step 5: Finally blow the air out forcefully through your mouth to the count of 8.
You can do the counting in your mind at a regular pace.
Repeat this breathing cycle 4 times which will take you around 1 minute to complete.
If you find it difficult to remember the counts or you get it mixed up, that’s perfectly fine. As long as you are breathing in, holding and then blowing the air out, you are good to go. With practice, you will gain more control over the technique so you can do it with ease.
This technique is not only great in aiding the body to get into sleep mode, it can also be used as a relaxation exercise whenever you are feeling stressed out or feel anxiety. You can also use this technique to settle down the mind before a meditation session.
There are other things that you can do to go to sleep beside this breathing technique such as having an early meal or dinner, eating light dinner, meditate before going to bed, use fresh air, listen to soft music or anything that soothes your mind.
Having a good night sleep is essential to start a fresh and nice day.
