BREATHE AND LET IT GO
Practicing deep breathing can distract your mind from worries, explains Dr. Ramlakhan. “Breathe in, hold for a few seconds, and then breathe out—do this three times. Just follow the breathing as you do it.” Breathing in this way instantly slows everything down, relaxes the mind and body, and helps channel your energy into the breathing action. The breathing will give way to the tiredness, which will overcome anxiety and help you fall asleep.
