Due to some factors, such as stress, mobile devices and bringing work to home, a lot of people are experiencing insomnia. Besides causing inadequate sleep, obesity, cardiac diseases and diabetes, it is one of the factors that shorten the lifespan.
According to Dr. Andrew Weil, a simple yoga breathing technique can help with sleeping. After putting your tongue on your upper teeth, take a small breath from your nose for 4 seconds, then give a strong breath from your mouth. Take and give a deep breath at the 8th second. Repeat this 3-4 times.
You can’t be successful at the first try but practice will do the job. This method will fill your lungs completely with air and provide your body with more oxygen. This will relax you and make it easier for you to go to sleep.
