With everything going on in our country today, stress seems to be skyrocketing. I thought it would be a good time to share one of my favorite & super fast techniques to relax.
You can do this pretty much anywhere, whenever you need to relax quickly. And it’s also great to use at night when you’re falling (or trying to fall) asleep.
So here’s how it works:
1. Breathe in for a count of 4
2. Hold that breath for a count of 7
3. Exhale slowly for a count of 8
4. Repeat 3 more times (4 total)
Of course, you can can repeat more, but 4 is the minimum to maximize the effects of this simple technique.
