  1. I was lying in bed having read the above, trying to remember a “sleep breathing” exercise. I think it is breathe in to the count of 4 and out to the count of 8………well it must be because I fell asleep trying it out. The lovely therapist I saw a few years back taught me this. He used to fall asleep too! Not a bad way to earn a living. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  2. Declan, you’re right – breath out longer than you breathe in and feel yourself sinking into the mattress – works every time! works better, too, if you breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, for some reason 😉
    Rachel, when I was an OT used to teach breathing and relaxation techniques for people who were having difficulty sleeping; if you want any other suggestions, let me know x
