Fall- Asleep- in-1-Minute

I found out how to fall asleep in 1 minute and I’m so excited!! It’s a big deal to me because for the last month or so,  my love affair with sleep has been almost non existent if not inconsistent.  I would get maybe three to four hours of sleep a night if that and no matter what,  always had the hardest time falling asleep.  It was like my mind would decide to wake up and open tabs as soon as it knew i was expecting sleep to pay me a visit.  That made anxious,  and so this snowball effect would begin night after night.  I became so frustrated that I started to research ways to fall asleep fast or ways to fall asleep naturally,  but found little results,  so you can imagine how fast I clicked the link when I find this article where she said she had a technique to fall asleep in 1 minute!? Yessss!! My sleep deprived ass needed ALL of that! So I clicked the link and,  Omg,  heaven! (Insert Angelic harmony here!)

What It is?

Okay so you’re probably wondering, what is this amazing technique that allows you to fall asleep in 1 minute? Well it’s an awesome breathing technique called “4-7-8” breathing trick.

What you do?:

So here’s what you do to make the the 4-7-8 breathing method work to help you fall asleep in 1 minute is, lay down in bed (or couch, or floor, wherever you sleep)  breathe through your nose for 4 seconds, then, you hold your breath for 7 seconds, and finally you exhale out of your mouth for 8 seconds. That’s it, that’s all!  and it worked like a charm. I couldn’t believe that breathing like that, helped me to fall asleep at all, not to mention in 1 minute. So crazy!

Why it works?

I couldn’t understand though, why would breathing help me to fall asleep in 1 minute? I mean I had been breathing and had been having issues falling asleep forever, so what was different about the 4-7-8 method? Well the reason why it works is because breathing at such a calculated pace, and focusing on the direction of your breathing while concentrating, starts to cause your heart to slow down, and when you’re anxious, or stressed, like I have been, technically you’re under-breathing because you’re breathing more shallowly.

“By extending your inhale to a count of four, you are forcing yourself to take in more oxygen, allowing the oxygen to affect your bloodstream by holding your breath for seven seconds, and then emitting carbon dioxide from your lungs by exhaling steadily for eight seconds. The technique will effectively slow your heart rate and increase oxygen in your bloodstream, and may even make you feel slightly lightheaded which contributes to the mild sedative-like effect. It will instantly relax your heart, mind, and overall central nervous system because you are controlling the breath versus continuing to breathe short, shallow gasps of air.” {via}

When To use it:

So you should only be using the 4-7-8 method when you’re ready to actually fall asleep in 1 minute, because it really works that fast. The coolest thing about this trick, is that you can use it anytime you need to get rest, and fall asleep in 1 minute to get it because it’s so important for your overall health to be getting proper amounts of sleep. This breathing technique, can be taken with you when you travel, when you’re all hyped up after work or a long day, and my favorite, because I do this a lot, when you wake up in the middle of the night and cant get back to sleep. Just start to use the 4-7-8 method, and you’ll be sure to fall asleep in 1 minute just like it’s nothing! it’s THAT awesome!

When I first tried it, I think I was so worried about what it was going to do, if I was doing it correctly, how long had it been since I’d started, would it really help me to fall asleep in 1 minute or was it just false, so I took a shower to relax, slapped on some coconut and lavender oils on my hair and skin, turned off all of my electronics (they’re part of the insomnia cause), and just laid down and started to breathe through my nose for 4 seconds. Needless to say, I guess I did fall asleep in 1 minute because I don’t think I remember much after that because the next thing I knew I was waking up! I use it often. Like to catch up on my beauty sleep, when I’m traveling, and especially when I’m feeling stressed.
