Bhramari Pranayama for sleep ( how does it work)?
When we do Bhramari Pranayama, at that time we fill our breath inside the body and then slowly exhale that breath by making a sound like a bee from the larynx (throat).
And due to which our mind becomes calm and the activities going on in our brain start decreasing and this also gives coolness to our mind.

How can you get rid of sleeping problems due to all these reasons?
The problem of sleeping is mainly due to stress, anxiety and depression, but many people have sleep problems due to some other reasons, as we told you above, because of all those reasons how you can get rid of insomnia now we will discuss this.
1. Due to bad eating habits:- Many people eat food late at night, they consume food immediately before sleeping, whereas we should not do this if your bedtime is at 10:00 in the night then you should take a meal at least 2 hours before your bedtime.
Along with this, we also make another mistake in eating. In today’s time, many people show more interest in outside food, they find spicy food outside more delicious, due to which they regularly become accustomed (addict).
Due to this, there is a problem with our digestion and we also have to face problems like acidity at night, due to which our sleep is often broken.
2. Due to using smartphones before sleep:- In today’s modern times almost every person has internet and mobile. Due to which about 70% of people use mobile before sleeping at night, while we should not do so at all, because our smartphones emit electromagnetic radiation and blue light which affect our brain and eyes.
You must have also experienced at some point in time that you do not have any problem in waking up the next day of the night you do not use the smartphone, and you feel that you complete your sleep.
This is because when we use smartphones, at that time blue light emits from the screen of our smartphone and they directly affect our eyes, due to which our eyes feel tired.
3. Due to poor sleep routine:- Many people make this mistake that they go to sleep at 10:00 at 9:00 and at 11:00 on some days we should not do this at all, you should make a routine and sleep. If you are sleeping at 10:00, then you should sleep only at 10:00 every day, this will complete your sleep and your sleep will not be broken again and again.
4. Due to several problems (asthma and diabetes):- If you have serious problems like asthma or diabetes, then these problems can also cause you insomnia. In asthma, we are not able to breathe properly or if we say that in the state of asthma, our breath keeps getting suffocated due to which we are not able to sleep properly and due to diabetes we also have problems related to sleep one can practice Anulom vilom Pranayama to cure Asthma.
5. Due to disturbed mental health:- Many people have this problem that they think too much even on small things, if anyone tells them anything, they keep thinking about it and they can not sleep well.
6. Due to Medications:- Many times, in some diseases, doctors give us sleeping pills or injections, they do this because we get some rest, but when we are cured, we do not sleep even after that because we have become accustomed (addict) to that medicine or injection.
So in this situation, do not take any kind of sleeping medicine, if you are still not able to sleep, then practice Bhramari Pranayama steps regularly for a few days, you will definitely get beneficial results.
7. Due to caffeinated and alcoholic drinks:- We all know this thing that if we get addicted to something, then we are not able to quit it quickly and if we do not get that addiction then our attention remains towards it.
- So these were the reasons for not sleeping and how you can solve these problems, Bhramari Pranayama can work in all these problems also but not that much, it works indirectly in all these problems.
