Ever have issues falling asleep? The 4-7-8 method is a deep-breathing trick that can make insomniacs drop off to sleep in less than a minute. It also combats stress/anxiety, acting as a natural tranquillizer for your nervous system. It takes just over a minute and can be done anywhere.
The exercise can be done in any comfortable position. It may feel awkward, to begin with, but for the entire exercise place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth, just behind your front teeth.
Before you start, breathe out completely through your mouth.
1. Tap "start" to start the counter.
2. Breathe in quietly through your nose for 4 seconds.
3. Hold your breath for 7 seconds.
4. Making a whoosh sound, breathe out through your mouth for 8 seconds.
5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for four "cycles".
Practice at least twice a day. Set reminders to get into a routine. To help fall asleep, practice when you get in bed or if you wake in the night. If you're feeling stressed or feel like you need to settle your nerves, practice to get a "hit" of calm.
You may feel a little light headed when you begin. It will pass as you practice. After a month you may want to extend to 8 cycles.
Effects are subtle to begin but increase with repetition. It takes about 2 months of practice to get the best results.

This is a lovely, simple app that doesn’t cost the earth. Easy to use. Effective. I appreciate not feeling like the app is designed only to drag money out of me. I absolutely recommend it.
This app will not let you restore your full purchases even though you’ve paid. It wants you to pay again!!!
Happy with this app. It has been very helpful during the day with stress and anxiety.
Very simple and easy to use, love that it keeps with the mindfulness tradition of less being more
It's simple but effective. Helps me to stop and slow down.
Was great at first. So good that I paid to unlock all the features ($5.99). However, after having to reinstall the app after needing a factory reset in my phone, only a couple of my paid features came back (and none of the ones I really want/need). I've contact customer support several times over the last few weeks and I get NO RESPONSE. Very poor service to take $$'s and not respond to support requests. If it wasn't for the bad customer service and this issue I would give 5 stars but I recommend you don't make any in app purchase on this app.
I have been teaching this strategy to my clients in therapy for a long time and now I recommend this app for them to walk them through as they're learning! It's simple and effective! Brilliant!
I am very surprised but this worked brilliantly !!
Awesome app! I like it! So quick and easy to use!
Went to sleep fast... and seemed to sleep deeper too!!
So easy to use! Helps me calm down, relax and get to sleep.
