To do the 4-7-8 breathing technique, you first need to exhale completely through your mouth while making a ‘whoosh’ sound.
Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.Now hold your breath for a count of seven.

Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three times for a total of four breaths.
