Asleep in 60 seconds: 4-7-8 breathing technique claims to help you nod off in just a minute:-
Method has been pioneered by Harvard-trained Dr Andrew Weill
It involves regulating your breathing to various counts of 4, 7 and 8
It lets oxygen better fill the lungs, calms the mind and relaxes muscles
You've tried a warm bath, a hot, milky drink and even counting sheep, but you're still lying wide awake wondering why you can't fall asleep.
Now, one scientist claims he has a way of getting insomniacs to slip into a slumber in just 60 seconds – and it doesn't involve prescription drugs or strange lighting.
The 4-7-8 breathing technique has been described as a 'natural tranquiliser for the nervous system' helping reduce tension and allowing the body to relax
Dubbed the 4-7-8 breathing technique, the method is described as a 'natural tranquiliser for the nervous system' helping to reduce tension in the body.
Exhale completely through your mouth while making a 'whoosh' sound.
Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.
Now hold your breath for a count of seven. 
Exhale completely through your mouth, making another whoosh sound for eight second in one large breath.
Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three times for a total of four breaths.
