Following a tried and tested format, our program works as follows:
SESSIONS Week 1: BECOME AWARE OF YOUR BREATHING
The first week’s sessions are designed to help you change how you think about how you breathe in a practical, pro-active way. When you struggle with snoring or sleep apnoea, it means you are probably not aware of your body during the day and how this affects you at night. Your body has become used to the poor sleep quality and you many profess that you get a great sleep even though those around you cannot and notice the side effects on you. And even though you believe this is a well-kept secret, it is still having an effect on your life and relationships with other people.
SESSIONS Week 2: PUTTING AWARENESS INTO PRACTICE
The second week’s sessions reinforce what you have learned last week. You are beginning to catch yourself coughing, sighing and generally mouth breathing during the day. Before it was normal, now you are trying to prevent it or If it does happen, respond to it with a simple breath-hold and realise you have been breathing too much before that cough/ sigh/ mouth breath.
SESSIONS Week 3: REPETITION FORMING INTO A NEW HABIT
The third week’s sessions add a new layer to the first two weeks sessions. You are well on your way to changing how you breathe during the day now, so this reduces how much you breathe at night. This means you are making a lot less noise! You may have found your way back into your own bed by now, if not, keep practicing!
SESSIONS Week 4: NEW HABIT BREATHING LESS ESTABLISHED
The fourth week’s sessions are continuing on from the first three, gives you tips on how to maintain it, how to address your breath if you should slip back after initial great success. By the end of your 4 weeks you will be aware of how to control your breath 24/7, and have a template for yourself on how to change it again in the future should the need arise.
