Here’s a weird trick on how to make yourself go to sleep fast.
Sleep…sleep, sleep, sleep. I can’t fall asleep at night. When I’m tired. When I’m not tired. Doesn’t matter, I can’t fall asleep.
So you lay there, look at the clock, get upset because you have to get up in a few hours, you drink this, you read that, you flip around so your head is where your feet normally are and so on. And…nothing works.
But this will.
I’m going to show you a special breathing exercise that you can do, in bed, it’s quiet, you won’t wake anyone up, no one will even know you’re doing it and you’ll forget you’re doing it because you’ll fall asleep.
Here’s how it goes.
When you breath in, you’re going to make a sound in your head. When you breath out, you’re going to make a different sound in your head. Whether you breath from your nose or mouth or both makes no difference.
And the sounds you’re going to make…in your head, not out loud…will be SAAAAA and Ooooom. Uh-oh, is this some mystical stuff that’s way out there? Nope.
The sounds are actually white noise…which is a constant noise that naturally relaxes human beings. And it just so happens, that in the English language, vowels create white noise. A…E…I…O…U.
So you can really use any vowel or any words or letters that drag out with a vowel at the end. But we’re going to use SAAAAA and Ooooom in this video.
To start, we’re going to use 3 focus breaths. These are 3 breaths that are deeper than normal breaths, but not as deep as a deep breath.
Then we’re going to start a rhythm, when we breath in, in our mind, we’ll say SAAAAA. And when we breath out, in our mind, we’re going to say OOOOOOmmm. What’s important here is the rhythm…that it’s consistent.
Should you do this for a certain length of time or should you do this X number of times? Nope. In fact, if you try to count while doing this, you’re going to lose track of the number pretty quickly.
You’re simply going to keep doing this until you screw up, which means you’re about to fall asleep because you’re not really conscious anymore…or you’ll fall asleep and won’t even remember you were doing this.
Sorry if you were expecting someting more complex, but simple always works best. Have a question? Let us know if the comments below!
