Isn't this a pretty bedroom?
I saved this photo last year, but I don't remember where I found it. I love it!
The past 2 years I have had a difficult time falling asleep. I usually count (one time to 500!) or repeat a short sentence...one of my favorites is "I am relaxed and at peace", yet I still have a hard time going to sleep.
About 3 weeks ago, Dr. Andrew Weil shared a technique on his facebook page called the 4-7-8 breathing technique. I tried it that night and was amazed how I felt like I was being drugged! It actually scared me and I didn't continue. LOL A friend shared the info today so I will try again and see how I feel. Click HERE to learn the method.
In a nutshell, you inhale for 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds and exhale for 8 seconds. It gave me a lightheaded feeling which as you read the brief instructions Dr. Weil mentions this, but I missed it. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
A day well spent brings
