Night time breathing for insomnia
Nearly everyone that I see in the Sleep Wales clinic describes feeling agitated at night or having lots of racing thoughts.
If there is one way of staying calm at night, that is to breath!
It sounds like such a cliche doesn't it? We have all heard about how slowing down our breathing can help us to calm down but how exactly does it work? How exactly do we do it?
Breathing is important for several reasons. If we start to feel agitated or tense, our breathing can speed up.
