Trying to Sleep
Insomnia is a problem that many of us face on a daily, or rather nightly basis. Temporary solutions like sleep masks, ear plugs, and white noise machines can help sometimes, but don't create lasting change. Dr. Andrew Weil, a Harvard trained medical doctor with a focus on holistic health, believes getting the best sleep ever is as simple as breathing in and breathing out. He has popularized the 4-7-8 breath that will help you fall a sleep in 60 seconds or less.
I used to suffer from a serious condition called BCI. (Butt-on-Couch Inertia.) It's a terrible affliction whereby the sufferer's butt is superglued to the couch in the evenings amidst the magical stillness and silence of the late-night hours. This chronic condition is exacerbated by peacefully sleeping children, netflix or a good book, and an excessively comfortable couch or recliner.
