  • sleepNo matter how much we toss and turn, some of us are unable to fall asleep when we lie down. While a lucky few, quickly slip off into dreamland as soon as their head hits the pillow. So what do these lucky few do right that the rest of us is doing wrong?
    Here we give you a few techniques that can help you fall asleep quickly.

    hammock-relaxationThe first and foremost thing to do is to unplug all electronic devices at least an hour before going to bed. If you try to fall asleep right after watching few hours of television, or playing adrenaline pumping video games or simply looking at your Smartphone for hours together, then your brain takes time to shut off and to let you fall asleep. Instead at the end of the day, you can unwind with a good book or listen to calming music. Even doing simple chores around the house can help you fall asleep easily. Make it a habit never to bring your electronic devices like laptops, mobile phones to bed. It is also better if you don’t have a television in your bedroom.

    If you are not able to fall asleep once you lie on the bed, you can try deep breathing. Focus on inhalation and exhalation. Calm your mind and try to get rid all the thoughts that pop into your head. Close your eyes and take deep slow breaths. Try to extend each breath.

    Try relaxing your muscles one by one. Start from your toes and slowly tense each muscle as tightly as you can and then unclench the muscles. Do this repeatedly till you reach the muscle groups at the top of your head. Finally close your eyes and imagine a calm peaceful environment and submerge yourself there.

    Follow these techniques and banish sleeplessness and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.
