A method developed by the Anglo-Saxon military claims to reach the state of sleep in just 120 seconds. This is how you can do it
More than 4 million people in Spain suffer from chronic insomnia , according to data from the Spanish Neurology Society, which also points out that between 25% and 35% of adults suffer from it temporarily. Bad sleep habits , stress, anxiety , an incorrect diet or alcohol consumption are some of the causes of this disorder, the most common in the population. It affects women with greater prevalence , but it appears more frequently in men and children, possibly related to social habits. The inability to start and / or maintain sleep , as well as early or non-restorative awakening, greatly affects the patient’s later wakefulness, and can be the cause of multiple diseases that affect the quality of life , for what is recognized as a disorder with its own entity regardless of how it appears.
Many of us toss and turn at night while struggling in vain to try to get some sleep . However, it seems that there might finally be a solution to get Morpheus to touch us in just two minutes.
A book entitled ‘Relax and Win: Championship Performance’ presents a secret United States military method that can help anyone fall asleep in as little as 120 seconds . The title was originally published in 1981, but the technique, which had been forgotten, has recently resurfaced online according to ‘ Joe.co.uk ‘. Relax the muscles of the face first, then arms and legs and then clear your mind Soldiers use it to ensure they can get some rest, even when on the battlefield , and it is said to have a 96% success rate after six weeks of practice . It was developed after army chiefs tried to eliminate mistakes made by pilots when they were very tired. In addition, it involves a combination of muscle relaxation, breathing techniques, and visualizations.
There are two types of insomnia: the first , in which you cannot sleep all night, and the second , in which you rest, but in which the person tends to wake up at least once during the night. Chronic sleep deprivation has been linked to serious problems like diabetes , heart disease, and stroke, and can even affect brain consolidation.
Let’s do it
First, you should relax the muscles in your face, including your tongue, jaw, and those around your eyes . Then you have to drop your shoulders as low as possible before relaxing your arm and forearm, first one and then the other. The third step is to breathe in and out, relax your chest and finally your legs. At that point, start with the thighs and lower legs. Once you’ve done it for ten seconds, you should clear your mind completely. According to the book, in order to have your head clear you must think of a canoe that is in a calm lake where you see nothing but the blue sky above your head. You can also imagine yourself lying in a velvet hammock in a dark room or saying “don’t think” over and over for ten seconds.
