If you are having a hard time getting the correct amount of sleep during night time, you’re just one of the millions of people who are going through the same thing.
You might think that you have tried everything, but what if we said, there is something that could actually help you sleep during night time.
Let’s start with how you eat in the morning.
If you want to get proper sleep at night, you should avoid or stop drinking caffeinated drinks after lunch or before you’re about to sleep.
Also, you should drink plenty of water so you will stay hydrated throughout the day.
When you’re about to sleep, you should try moon breathing.
We know it sounds strange but it has helped a lot of people.
Also called as the Chandra Bhedana in Sanskrit, Moon Breathing is a method that can ease nonsense thoughts that are keeping you away. It can also chase anxiety away.
This method is pretty easy and it doesn’t require a person doing one-legged meditation.
All you have to do is cover your right nostril and focus on breathing exclusively through the left one.
A guru who does this method claims this technique calms down the nervous system and helps humans sleep.
This method is popular amongst Indians, Chinese, Japanese, and practitioners of Yoga.
To take full benefits of this method, you have to lie on a spot where it is super comfortable, block your right nostril with a finger, and breath deeply through the left nostril for a number of minutes.
This method will not knock you out, so you will have to stop doing it when you think your body is calm.
If you are stressed and have anxiety, you should try the alternate nostril breathing technique, which is proven in helping cope up with stress and anxiety.
This technique requires you to deeply breathe through alternate nostrils.
Alternate nostril, which is also known as Nadi Shodhana, is a breathing technique that helps humans quite their mind and settle away from their emotions. Guru’s recommend this technique when a learner is stressed or anxious.
This technique will help you focus on your mind and cope up with all the things that have placed you down.
The Indian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology did a study on Yoga and Meditation and the study revealed that alternate nostril breathing can actually alter the metabolic system of a person’s body.
The study said men that did breathing through their left nostrils for 27 breathing cycles four times per day were more relaxed.
Breathing can affect the sympathetic nervous system activity, which reduces the stress levels in a body.
Note: Before you do this method, make sure you consult your doctor about this. The mentioned method above should only be done if you are healthy. If you have breathing problems and heart-related problems, we recommend you to ask your doctor about this method.
