4-7-8 Breathing Technique - Aids Sleep

1.  Allow your lips to gently part.

2.  Exhale completely, making a breathy whoosh sound as you do.

3.  Press your lips together as you silently inhale through the nose           for a count of 4 seconds.

4.  Hold your breath for a count of  7.

5.  Exhale again for a full 8 seconds, making a whooshing sound             throughout.

6.  Repeat 4 times when you first start. Eventually work up to 8                 repetitions                     

 

Dr. Andrew Weil developed this technique as a variation of pranayama, an ancient yogic technique that helps people relax as it replenishes oxygen in the body.

Diaphragmatic Breathing Exercise

1.  Lie on your back and either bend your knees over a pillow or         sit in a chair.

2.  Place one hand flat against your chest and the other on your         stomach.

3.  Take slow, deep breaths through your nose, keeping the hand          on  your chest still as the hand on your stomach rises and              falls with your breaths.

4.  Next, breath slowly through pursed lips.

 

Eventually, you want to be able to breath in and out without your chest moving.  This technique slows your breathing and decreases your oxygen needs as it strengthens your diaphragm.

Alternate Nasal Breathing Exercise - Stress Relief
(Nadi Shodhana Pranayama)

2.  Place your left hand on your knee and your right thumb against             your nose.

3.  Exhale fully and then close the right nostril.

4.  Inhale through your left nostril.

5.  Open your right nostril and exhale through it, while closing the left.

6.  Continue this rotation for 5 minutes, finishing by exhaling through          your left nostril.

Box Breathing

During box breathing, you want to focus intently on the oxygen you’re bringing in and pushing out:

1.  Sit with your back straight, breathe in, and then try to push all the           air out of your lungs as you exhale.

2.  Inhale slowly through your nose and count to 4 in your head, filling         your lungs with more air with each number.

3.  Hold your breath and count to 4 in your head.

4.  Slowly exhale through your mouth, focusing on getting all the                 oxygen out of your lungs.
