These viral TikTok videos definitely have a few suggestions for you.

The technique of sleeping in the army two minutes

Fitness trainer Justin Agustin Recently, there has been widespread publicity for a military technique that can help people fall asleep within two minutes.

“96% of people who master this technique can actually fall asleep within two minutes of closing their eyes,” he reveals to his 1.7 million followers.

“Drop them as low as you can and let the arms hang loosely to the side, including the hands and fingers.”

Then you need to imagine a warm feeling going from your head down to your fingertips.

“Inhale deeply and slowly exhale, relaxing chest, abdomen, down thighs, knees, legs and feet,” he continued.

In the meantime, you need to keep your mind clear.

There are two scenarios you should imagine to achieve this.

“One, you’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake, with nothing but clear blue skies above you.

“Second, you’re lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room.”

And if you start to get distracted, repeat the word “Don’t think” 10 times.

The technique of sleeping with paradoxical intentions

Another hint to earn some kip is to trick your mind into thinking you don’t want to sleep.

Obviously, our bodies tend to do the opposite of what we really want it to do.

So if you think you want to stay awake, your body will actually do the opposite and force you to sleep.

“Your body will do the opposite and you will eventually feel tired and fall asleep.”
