How to fall asleep in two minutes: a military secret

It can be fully mastered in six weeks

In times of great stress, falling asleep normally becomes a real problem. Some people resort to meditation, others to medication. However, there is a method used by the military, for whom quality rest is a professional necessity, and comfortable conditions for sleep are not always available.

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

To start falling asleep, you need to lie down and take the most comfortable position possible, then relax every part of your body. You can do this by gradually shifting your attention from muscle to muscle, starting with your forehead, cheeks, and jaw, moving further down your body, and ending with your toes. At the same time, you should monitor your breathing so that it is steady and calm.

It is also helpful to imagine two waves of heat in succession. One should flow from the head through the shoulders to the arms, and the other from the heart to the feet.

Visualize one of two pictures: either you are lying in a canoe in the middle of a lake, with only a clear blue sky above you, or you are relaxing in a velvet black hammock in a darkened black room.

If something starts to distract you or you begin thinking about something else, repeat the phrase in your mind for 10 seconds: "Don't think."

To develop the habit of falling asleep in this way, Augustine says you need to practice the method every night for six weeks. Almost all people who have mastered this method have learned to fall asleep two minutes after closing their eyes, the blogger says.
