These days Americans are a bit more stressed than usual. There's a lot going on in the world right now. Many of us are stressing over politics, over the coronavirus and everything in between. It's no secret that the troubling times are causing a lot of us to lose sleep. Last night, I couldn't fall asleep. I tried my sleep app and it took me over 2 hours to be able to fall asleep last night. I blame the time change. Insomniacs swear by the 4-7-8 Method, some folks promise it'll have you catching z's in under 3 minutes.

It's called the 4-7-8 Method and comes from celebrity doctor Andrew Weil, who called it the "single best method that I've found for dealing with getting back to sleep". All you do is inhale through your nose for four seconds, hold that breath for seven seconds, and slowly exhale it out for eight seconds. Keep doing that and before long you'll be asleep.
