I cant remember when I first read about this technique but I think it was no doubt on reddit. It was being discussed as a sleeping aid and I was curious so I tried it.

I fell asleep in minutes!

I was really surprised. I went in thinking "nah this will never work" - which isn't a great attitude in itself. But I started, got two or three rounds in and woke up in the morning. It was weird! I'm not saying this will work for everyone but I have seen other testimonials like this so I encourage everyone to practise through the day and then give it a try when they get into bed.

Even if it doesn't send you straight to sleep it is a great way to relax and de stress quickly. It doesn't take long and requires no equipment so you can do it everywhere and anywhere!

A reddit user I spoke to made a great web tool visulizing the technique which is well worth checking out! You can find it at is beatifully simple. You simply sync your breathing to the expanding and shrinking circle. Lovely.
