How to fall asleep quickly
Good night little birds

Having trouble falling asleep? An important meeting? We did our little research and we offer you 2 methods that would make you fall asleep in no time. The first was developed by a scientist and the second was used by the military to be able to fall asleep even on a battlefield in under 2 minutes.

The 4-7-8 method:

It was Professor Andrew Weil (Harvard) who developed this technique based on yoga.

How to do ? Calm down. Touch your puck with the tip of your tongue. Inhale 4 seconds. Hold your breath for 7 seconds. Exhale 8 seconds. Repeat as many times as necessary (the method recommends 4 cycles minimum). This helps to slow down your heart rate, calm you down and put you to sleep.

This method is supposed to work in most positions. If you are sitting, keep your back straight, legs parallel and feet on the ground (on public transport for example, if this is the case check that there are still a few stations left and hide your wallet).

The Relax and Win method:

If you are still there after trying the first method, we may still have a solution for you which should last this time max 120 seconds. Revealed in 1981 in Relax and Win: Championship Performance, this technique has been used by the military to help soldiers fall asleep quickly (even in the combat zone, much like you maybe do with babies). After 6 weeks of training, 96% of pilots manage to fall asleep in less than 2 minutes.

How to do ?

First step (physical relaxation):

Lie down. Relax all the muscles of your face (including your tongue unlike the first method). Relax the shoulders by lowering them as much as possible. Also relax the rest of the body (arms from bottom to top, then legs). Breathe in slowly and breathe out slowly. Release the pressure on the chest. Once everything is relaxed, we stay 10 seconds.

Second stage (mental relaxation):

The goal is to clear your mind. For this the method recommends the following 3 things (choose according to what you like the most):

If it still doesn't work after several weeks of training, you may want to consider seeing a specialist and / or reducing stress in your daily life.

Here. Good night.
