Sleep Experiment Trial 3
Last night’s option for the Sleep Experiment did not work at all. I had to follow the following breathing exercise;
- Breath in deeply for 4 counts
- Hold breath for 2 counts
- Exhale for 4 counts, gently forcing the last bit of air out at the end
- Repeat and focus on breathing, clearing your mind of all else.
I found myself focusing on how tired it was making me and trying to become aware of when I was falling asleep so I was hideously distracted. I eventually gave up and just there waiting for sleep to come. It took a while. When I finally got to sleep I slept pretty soundly but the whole process of getting to sleep was not improved via this method, for me at aleast.
Rating for the breathing execises; 3/10.
I’m going to give the yoga a try tonight! Fingers crossed!
