A natural tranquilizer

November 30 download 035I recently came across a relaxation technique that I have been using nonstop called 4-7-8.  Here’s how it works, you breath in for four counts, hold for seven and breath out for eight counts.  It works wonders!  So I did a search on it and this is what I found out…

Dr. Weil says “This exercise is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. Unlike tranquilizing drugs, which are often effective when you first take them but then lose their power over time, this exercise is subtle when you first try it but gains in power with repetition and practice.”

Whaaaaaa?!

That really makes me want to try it more often to see if I can experience how it gains power.  I highly recommend giving it a try next time you are feeling overwhelmed or even after sitting at your desk for too long.

Has anyone else heard of this?  What do you think?
