In times of great stress, falling asleep normally becomes a real problem. Someone resorts to meditation, someone to medicine. But there is a method that is used by the military, for which quality rest is a professional necessity, and comfortable conditions for sleeping are far from always.

Popular Canadian fitness blogger Justin Augustine shared it on his TikTok. According to him, the method helps to fall asleep in just 2 minutes from the moment you close your eyes. The blogger noted that, according to his data, the method was developed for military pilots who need all their concentration, which cannot be maintained without proper sleep.

To begin to plunge into sleep, you need to lie down and take the most comfortable position, and then relax every part of your body. This can be done by gradually transferring attention from muscle to muscle, starting with the forehead, cheeks, jaw, moving further down the body and ending with the toes. At the same time, you should monitor your breathing so that it is even and calm.

It is good to imagine two waves of heat in succession. One should flow from the head over the shoulders into the hands, and the other from the heart to the feet.

In this case, one of two pictures should be imagined. You are lying in a canoe in the middle of a lake with only clear blue skies above you. Or you relax in a velvet black hammock in a darkened black room.

If something starts to distract you or you start thinking about something else, for 10 seconds, mentally repeat to yourself the phrase: “Don’t think.”

To develop the habit of falling asleep in this way, Augustine says, the method must be practiced every night for six weeks. Almost all people who have mastered this method have learned to fall asleep two minutes after they close their eyes, the blogger convinces.

Earlier, GLOBAL HAPPENINGS talked about five foods that interfere with normal sleep if you eat them at night.
