A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for everything”-Irish Proverb
In addition to relieving stress, a good laugh deepens our breath, and that is the topic of Blog Post #3 on improving sleep schedules and quality.
Here is an exercise that can make falling asleep quicker and easier.
Tuck into bed and get comfortable
Place tip of your tongue on the back of your top teeth and exhale with your mouth open
Close your mouth and take a deep breath in through for a count of 4
Hold the breath for a count of 7
Exhale S-L-O-W-L-Y for a count of 8
Repeat 2-3 times. Then close your eyes and drift off…Sleep tight!
