It all started when I reached office late on an important day. For the past few days, it was getting difficult for me to sleep. Well, it is not rare in our generation. Sleepless nights are a problem almost with everyone. But, a miracle happened when my friend told me her secret technique to sleep in just one minute.
Before trying the technique, was not more than a prank to me. But I realized this the next morning: I didn’t even count till 8 and fell asleep.
Adrenaline in the blood increases when you are stressed or anxious. Your breathing gets faster and lighter. This breathing exercise acts as a kind of sedative. Deliberately slowing down your breathing in this way forces the rhythm of your heart to slow down, making you calm very quickly; it’s simple physiology!
This exercise makes you concentrate only on your breathing and calms your mind. Your central nervous system starts reducing its activity. The exercise works as an anaesthesia in your body.
Even if you don’t want to sleep, this exercise will help you to relax your body when you feel nervous.
