Each of us needs a good and sound sleep. But sometimes falling asleep is not at all as easy as a person would like. In most cases, stress is the culprit. Therefore, it will not be superfluous for everyone to know at least a few practices of falling asleep quickly, including in a stressful situation.
1. Sleep mode
The graph is a useful thing. Scientists and experts recommend that you always go to bed and get up at the same time. Over time, the body will get used to this routine. This will not only help you fall asleep more easily, but also wake up on your own without the help of things like an alarm clock. A striking example is military service – soldiers have a rigid daily routine, including sleep, for the need to maintain the body in the right tone.
We pacify the mind. Visualizing calming pictures in your brain can help prevent surges in activity when they are not needed. This also applies to stressful situations when the mind is under pressure from irritating factors. Visualizing pleasant pictures will help put your brain and nerves in order and fall asleep faster.
Introduce ourselves in the boat and that’s it. A separate visualization technique that helps many people in especially difficult situations. If it is difficult to imagine an idealistic landscape, you can try to imagine yourself at least in a boat swaying on the waves. Most likely, the “motion sickness” effect will help you fall asleep quickly and soundly.
4. Muscle relaxation
We relax the whole body. A very effective method that promotes effective rest and quick sleep. Its essence is to relax most of the muscles in your body with the effort of thought. They usually start with the head. First, you should relax every muscle in your face, including your tongue. Then the shoulders and chest, each arm separately, and so on. Most of the adherents of this method “switch off” even before reaching the fingers.
5. Pretend to be asleep
Unexpectedly, but it will help. An amazing deception of your own body that really works. Surely in childhood, many pretended to be asleep in order to “roll around” a little more and unexpectedly fell asleep again for real! The state of rest and correct breathing are to blame.
6. Cold room
Before going to bed, the room should be ventilated. Of course, you need to sleep in a warm room. However, if sleep is very difficult, it will not be superfluous to properly ventilate the room before going to bed. It sounds strange, but cold air is actually better for falling asleep than warm air. The fact is that because of the cold air, the temperature of a person’s skin and his blood pressure approach the values that are set in the body during sleep.
