Fall asleep

A fitness expert on TikTok went viral after showing a method that helps someone fall asleep in just two minutes.

Justin Agustin, who runs a popular YouTube channel, recently shared a video in which he detailed a strategy that is apparently commonly used within the military.

What are the steps?

Justin noted the importance of deep breathing and relaxation, starting from the head down to the feet.

He also suggested starting by relaxation the muscles in your forehead and focusing on deep breathing. Then, move down to your neck and shoulders, making sure not to tense them. Keep your arms relaxed by your side with hands and fingers fully extended.

Imagine a warm sensation moving down your body, from your head to your toes. Now take a deep breath and relax your muscles, all the way down to your legs and feet.

“don’t think, don’t think, don’t think”

He stressed the importance of clearing your mind of stress before presenting two scenarios to think about. First, imagine you’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you. Second: Now picture yourself lying on a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room.”

He continued by suggesting that if we feel distracted, we should repeat the words “don’t think, don’t think, don’t think” for 10 seconds; and do this every night for 6 weeks.

“Anytime, anywhere”

He explained that this technology was originally designed for soldiers, so they could sleep anywhere at any time- even during battle when it’s very loud and uncomfortable. He emphasis how important sleep is for a soldier.

Justin added that, according to his research, this technology was developed for fighter pilots who need to be able to react quickly and remain focused. Also noted that 96% of those who have adopted the technology are able to fall asleep within two minutes of closing their eyes.

The video has been viewed more than 2.8 million times, which is a clear indication that people are interested in this topic.
