By: | September 21st, 2018

Due to our hectic schedules, stress, and a myriad of life responsibilities, most of us suffer from nights without sleep. However, a military secret to help insomniacs fall asleep in just 120 seconds has been revealed.

A book titled “Relax and Win: Championship Performance” features this secret method that is said to have a 96 percent success rate after six weeks of practice.

The book shows the way to relax and fall asleep within two minutes

The book reads, “The U.S. Navy Pre-Flight School developed a scientific method to fall asleep day or night, in any conditions, in under two minutes. After six weeks of practice, 96 percent of pilots were able to sleep in two minutes or less even after drinking coffee, with machine gunfire being played in the background.”

Following are the steps to fall asleep in just two minutes:

  • Relax the muscles in your face, including tongue, jaw, and the muscles around the eyes
  • Drop your shoulders and relax both sides of the upper and lower arms
  • Breathe out and relax your chest
  • Relax your legs, starting from the thighs and working down

After this, you should try to clear your mind by visualizing one of the three following images:

  • Imagine yourself lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear, blue sky above you
  • Imagine yourself lying in a black velvet hammock in a dark room
  • Repeat the words “don’t think, don’t think, don’t think” to yourself over and over for about 10 seconds
