If stress has you tossing and turning at night, or bringing you down each day, here’s a simple way to relieve it, for real. It’s quick and it’s free.
Try the “4-7-8” sleep technique from clinical professor of medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil:
• Place your tongue lightly behind your top teeth.
• Breathe in through your nose for a count of 4.
• Hold that breath for a count of 7.
• Exhale for a count of 8.
• Repeat that three times.
That technique brings more oxygen into your body and relaxes the parasympathetic nervous system – which controls our stress response.
You’ll feel better faster than you might think.
