A lot of people have trouble falling asleep - including me. Especially if there is a lot going on in my head! That's why I was amazed to find this article: supposedly a foolproof way to get to sleep fast. It's called the 4-7-8 method: breathe in through your nose for four seconds, hold the breath for seven seconds, then breathe out through your mouth for eight seconds. Apparently this magic combination lulls the brain and slows the heart. You can read all about the theory and the science behind the method, and the author's experiences, by clicking here.
I'm trying it - I'd love to know how you find it!
