One of the problems that many people experience today is insomnia. Most of the time, we see people turning around in their beds and saying they’re not sleeping, even though they’re sleepy. Or we’re in this situation. In fact, there are some ways to relax the body scientifically and make it fall asleep. With these methods, the body can go to sleep. Moreover, in 2 minutes or less.
The 10 seconds method for American soldiers will attract your attention. Sleep for the armies was always a vital issue. During World War II, when the soldiers were able to shoot themselves from lack of sleep, a serious work was started on this subject. Soldiers should be able to sleep at night and day. For this reason, the training unit developed a special technique in 2 minutes in the soldiers to fall asleep taught. At the end of the six-week study, 96% of the soldiers were successfully falling asleep.
The technique is pretty easy. You can try it in any environment. The only thing needed is a position where the body can be completely released. The process starts briefly as follows. You need to relax your face first. Don’t stretch your eyebrows or tighten your lips. Keep breathing slowly until you release all the muscles in your face. Then we move on to the shoulders. Release your shoulders as far as possible. Then get in the arms. You need to put your arms in your lap. You have to let go of your arms. As for the legs, do the same for this place. Try to release legs from groin to her fingertips. Definitely not the contractions. Do it until you don’t feel your legs. Now it’s time to release the head. We’re not talking about head muscles, we’re talking about thoughts. You might have had a rough day. Thoughts may be attacking your head. All you have to do is think of a flat floor. Turn around quickly and slow down and stop the images. If you can’t, say don’t think inside for at least 10 seconds. This will help. If you do all this successfully and you can stay 10 seconds in this way, you’ll probably fall asleep. It’s important that you don’t make a big deal out of it and get as free as possible. The rest is coming.
There may be some things you need to do before you fall asleep. Especially for those who can’t sleep. It’s not just superstition. Research shows that a hot shower before going to sleep makes it easier to fall asleep. The reason for this is that the brain begins to fall asleep when there is a slight decrease in the body temperature. You can also increase your chances for good sleep with a few small servings of snacks, such as a slice of bread or a banana, under 200 calories. Because you can suppress the hunger hormone that reduces sleep by eating them.
Counting sheep may not be so silly. According to a study, insomnia patients sleep faster while trying to solve the average difficulty math problems. If you are not good with numbers, you can also apply to mind games such as finding a city or country that begins with each letter of the alphabet. According to a study conducted at the University of California, insomnia patients sleep more easily when they are given good thoughts. In the experiment, insomnia patients were divided into three groups. They were asked from the first group to dream in an environment that gives them pleasure,and from the second group to forget their concerns. No routing was made to the third group. The third group fell asleep in more than 1 hour, 40 minutes for those who want to forget their concerns and 20 minutes for those who think of pleasant things. Are you still awake? Don’t worry. Even if you can’t fall asleep, it’s only good for your body to relax.
Do simple relaxation exercises instead of thinking about whether you’re sleeping or not. One of the most effective exercises is to stretch your toes for 10 seconds. Do the same with the leg,arm,hand,chest,shoulder and head. You may have fallen asleep before your turn. At least you can rest your body. Have a good sleep already.
