Some people can sleep in a minute while it take ages for others to fall asleep. It can be awkward when you wake up early the next morning to go to work and everybody stares at you while you yawn throughout the day because you are still sleepy. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Here are some techniques which have been proven to be effective to help one fall asleep faster:
1.Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) – This is considered a great technique to help you fall asleep if you are suffering from insomnia. It is a method of relaxing your muscles which thereby relax the whole body and helps you sleep at ease.
2.Meditation: is a great way to deal with the anxiety and stress that makes you unable to fall asleep. Meditating to a calm nature audio or a guided meditation to talk you down to sleep are considered effective. They also help you relax your mind and body.
3.Visualization: Visualizing something peaceful is another effective technique. You can dream of a calm place where you love to hangout. Most people prefer a place from their childhood which they have stored in their memory. Our childhood memories are believed to help us deal with mental issues.
4. Acupressure: is yet another great technique to fall asleep faster than usual. There are 2 acupressure points on the wrist and 1 on the back of the skull which are helpful for people who are suffering from insomnia. Several people vouched for the fact that these points did wonders to their sleeping comfort.
5.A Warm Shower: A nice warm shower after a long day is all that we need to make us feel calm and peaceful. It has yet another benefit- it help calm our body muscles and relax them to an extent that we automatically fall asleep.
