On the new breathing exercise: since this is supposed to slow the heart rate and put the body into parasympathetic mode, I tried this on a night I couldn’t get to sleep. It was difficult to regulate my breathing so that I didn’t run out of air during the 8-count exhalation, which put a lot of pressure on the 4-count inhalation, making the entire exercise very stressful. I don’t have the best lungs either, which was probably a detriment to my practice.
