Dr. Nicole Ferguson says during these chaotic times what has helped her to relax is mindfulness and deep breathing. One of her favorite breathing technics is the 4-7-8 breathing technique. She often does it when she is trying to fall asleep or when she is sitting in traffic.

Here’s what you do. You inhale to the count of 4 seconds, hold to the count of 7 seconds and exhale to the count of 8 seconds. She says she hopes you feel relaxed after this exercise and that it helps you as much as it helps her.

Dr. Nicole Ferguson say to remember to breath and be well.
