The simple breathing technique which may be the key to a good night sleep
Looking to get a good night's rest?
We’ve all heard that we’re meant to get at least eight hours of sleep a night - but even on a good day, that could be incredibly tricky.
With the stresses and strains of modern day-to-day life, even managing to fall asleep easily can be difficult.
But there's a new trick doing the rounds that promises to make it easier than ever to nod off. The only thing is, it's a bit...out there.
Anandi, who is also known as The Sleep Guru, suggests humming like a bumblebee if you're unable to get to sleep.
According to You Magazine, she explained:
"The last thing you do before you settle down to go to sleep… hum like a bumblebee for 10 minutes!
"Bear with me here! The bumblebee breath is incredible for insomnia.
"It calms the mind, gets rid of negative emotions and stimulates serotonin."
If you're convinced enough to embrace the way of the bumblebee, here's what you need to do:
"Turn the lights out, lay comfortably on your back and make the bumblebee sound.
"Just inhale and hum on the exhale, and thats it. You'll soon be putting in the zzzz's instead of the mmm's."
