Touching The Roof Of Your Mouth With Your Tongue And Taking A Breath May Help You Fall Asleep Faster

Sleeping is very important to our health and many of us fail to get enough of it.

Getting a good night’s sleep can really make all the difference in the world. If you are the type of person who finds it difficult to fall or stay asleep, then this might help.

Deep breathing is amazing and it allows your parasympathetic system, which is the system that influences our ability to relax, to take control and override our sympathetic system, which is the system that is in charge of our automatic responses.

It is called the 4-7-8 technique. You want to start by sitting up in your bed with your back straight. Next, press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth behind your front teeth. As you are holding your tongue there, inhale through your nose for 4 counts, hold it for 7 counts and then exhale with your tongue still pressed against the roof for 8 counts. As you exhale you should be hearing a whooshing sound as the air flows out from around your tongue. Keep doing that until you have completed 4 breaths with the technique and you should start to feel more relaxed.
