It’s insane how quickly our lives fall into a pattern of being constantly busy and stressed out all the time but fear not, we’ve got 4 excellent ways to decompress even the worst nail-biters and coffee-lovers.
Okay so it may sound as simple as a taking few deep breathes but literally that’s what it is! If you can’t go to yoga class, that’s alright – here’s how you can ‘nama’-stay in bed. A genius form of breathing that wellness experts and yoga gurus swear by – the 4-7-8 breathing technique. If you do this right before bed – there’s a very high-chance instead of taking an hour to fall asleep you’ll be dozing off in mere minutes! Here’s how it works, you breathe in through your nose for four seconds, hold your breather for another seven seconds and finally you exhale for eight seconds – this has some sort of effect on the brain and slows down the heart rate which in turn puts you right to sleep!

Sound of Music
Music seems to put anyone in a good mood, and studies have show that this correlates with reducing stress too. However, instead of listening to top 40 charts, delve into relaxing genres of music to ease your mind. Listening to deep house is one way to go about it, but some people prefer listening to guided meditation to try and fall asleep, YouTube is definitely got some fab ones! Or better yet invest in some ambient sound podcasts to help de-stress. You’d be surprised how the background music helps you relax and better yet fall asleep within a blink of an eye, literally!
