Insomnia negatively affects our well-being

Good quality sleep supports physical and mental health. However, people often face the problem of not being able to fall asleep for a long time, and this has a bad effect on their well-being.

But there is a proven military method that will help you fall asleep in two minutes. OBOZREVATEL found out how to apply it correctly.

American sports trainer Lloyd Winter developed this method during World War II so that soldiers could have a good rest and gain strength. It allowed them to sleep even while sitting in a chair amidst the sounds of fighting and shooting.

To achieve the desired effect, you need to lie on your back with pillows under your head, knees, and arms. Then close your eyes and breathe slowly. Relax your face, tongue, and lips.

Lower your shoulders, relax your arms, legs, chest, and ribs, and mentally allow your midsection to stretch. Feel the state of relaxation and associate it with the word "calm."

To fall asleep, clear your mind by imagining yourself in a peaceful place, such as a deserted island. It is important to avoid any body movement.

If all else fails, say the words "don't think" for 10 seconds. And then you should fall asleep.

It takes six weeks or 42 nights to master this technique. According to Winter, this method has a 96 percent success rate and significantly improves the all-round performance of those who use it.
