Counting the Breath
Hypnotherapist, Yoga/Meditation Teacher
Counting the breath is a wonderful way to shift the mind to quiet down and calm the nervous system, especially when the exhale is longer than the inhale. This is a short practice on counting the breath with the rhythm of 4 (inhale) and 5 (exhale). However, even though this is not a long practice just by focusing on the breath in/out of the nose, then the rise and fall of the breath in the belly, and then this specific count of breath you will be instantly ready for bedtime and a peaceful night's sleep.
