Ali Gonzalez told us her story about how she found out this beautiful method:
“It all started a week before the wedding of my best friend. At that time my fatigue and anxiety reached a critical point. I could not sleep. All because I had to think of a speech. My shyness and nervousness would not let me sleep. After three days of insomnia and care for the wedding upcoming, I searched for advice from the mother of the bride. She recommended a method that should be a good one and I believed her, because this woman keeps long hours in meditation and has a license for medical practice. What to say, except that her advice changed my life! “
It is best to remember this technique as “4-7-8”. Here’s what you should do…
Method for quick sleep 4-7-8
Lay down in the flat position, make sure you are comfortable and warm.
- Close your eyes and inhale deeply through your nose. Deep inhaling should last 4 seconds.
- After this, hold the air in the chest for 7 seconds.
- Finally, start to slowly drop the air through the mouth for 8 seconds.
- Then, repeat the whole procedure 4-7-8.
While you do this, you can count the seconds in yourself and thus follow the procedure of breathing.
It’s that simple. This breathing exercise reduces the heart rate and calms. In addition, it acts fast – in just a few repetitions. Although it looks like nonsense, it really works.
How does it work?
“I could not wait to try this ‘joke’ in practice. I was surprised when I woke up the next morning. I didn’t even realized that I have not counted those 8 seconds to exhale after the second repetition. Here’s what I found out about this effect:
When you feel stress, worry or anxiety, the amount of adrenaline in the blood rise, and breathing becomes light and fast. The method that this woman told me acts as a sedative. Holding a breath with particularly slow exhalation it slows the heart rate. It is physiology.
.Also, this method calms your mind. Just because you constantly have to count in yourself and be concentrated on breathing. At that point you do not realize it, but your nervous system will slowly calm and feelings of concern will disappear. Every neurologist will tell you this. As a result of that, your whole body will relax. The speed and strength of this method is similar to the anesthesia. ”
Andrew Weil, a doctor of medical science at Harvard was studying this technique.He found that the method “4-7-8” for several centuries was known by Indian yoga teachers. They used this technique in meditation to achieve complete relaxation. So we can conclude that it is completely safe.

Dr. Weil recommends practicing this method twice every day, to learn and to be able to use it every time you need it.
