A quick way to relax

If you’re looking for a quick way to relax, try the yoga-inspired 4-7-8 Breath technique created by Dr. Andrew Weil from Arizona in the US. 

  1. Place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth just behind your teeth, and keep it there through the entire exercise.
  2. Exhale completely and forcefully through your mouth, making a ‘whoosh’ sound.
  3. Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.
  4. Hold your breath and count to seven.
  5. Exhale completely and forcefully through your mouth, making another ‘whoosh’ sound, to a count of eight.
  6. Inhale again and repeat the cycle three more times for a total of four breaths.
