IF Insider No. 61 - practice this simple exercise via Dr. Ellen Britt and Denise Wakeman
I find great benefit in reading your articles: I suffer from sleep apnoea (UK spelling!), greatly aggravated due to being overweight (5ft 1" and 144lbs). It's improved massively as I have lost about 20lbs in the last 10 months, but I still have at least 20lbs more to go. I've read much of what you've written about before, but what I find so engaging and useful about your writings is the practical advice which spreads out into a real wellness practice. Your 4-7-8 breathing exercise is a perfect example of this: all the physiological benefits which you describe, while also making me feel that I'm valuing myself by taking a minute or two to look after myself. I'm writing a bedside note to remind me to do this at bedtime, and upon waking, too.
Many thanks for the time and effort which you both put into educating and supporting your readers. I'm spreading the word here in London!
