How to quickly calm down and fall asleep in 10 minutes: a Japanese method that really works
To stay healthy, doctors recommend sleeping at least seven hours a night. Without sleep, a person can live no more than seven days, but health problems will begin much earlier.
When you can't fall asleep quickly, many people take sleeping pills. But there is another way to overcome insomnia without medication - the so-called Japanese method. OBOZREVATEL tells what it is all about.
What is the essence of the Japanese method
If you can't fall asleep quickly, counting sheep or other animals is unlikely to help: in this case, the brain concentrates on the task and wakes up.
The peculiarity of the Japanese method is that it allows you to fall asleep in just a few minutes. It is also considered safer than taking medication and even beneficial, especially for those who suffer from headaches.
The Japanese method is similar to rocking a child to sleep - only in this case, you rock yourself to sleep.
How to fall asleep quickly using the Japanese method
If you suffer from insomnia, make your bed, but don't lie down right away. First, sit on the edge so that you are comfortable. Then you need to breathe in and out deeply several times to stabilize your heart rate.
Then close your eyes. You can wear a mask if you are used to sleeping in one.
After that, start slowly turning your head from side to side as if you are giving up something. You need to do 100-150 repetitions.
When you feel a little dizzy (due to a sharp rush of blood to the head and more intense oxygen supply), you can go to bed.
As practice shows, sleep comes very quickly.
