In this blog post, I am going to share with you the method US Navy use to get their pilots asleep in 2 minutes. Check it out

Method used by US Navy

Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorder affecting millions if not billions of people worldwide.

The US Navy needs their pilots to be able to fall asleep in any conditions any time of the day.

The method proves to have 96% success rate after 6 weeks of practicing by their pilots.

There are 5 easy steps that will get you asleep in 120 seconds.

You should spend one and half minute on all these steps to allow your body to relax physically and mentally.

Step 1 – Get your face asleep

Lie face up in bed. Relax your facial muscle including your jaw, tongue and muscles around your eyes.

If you realize you have a frown, really focus on releasing the center of your forehead.

Your forehead should be absolutely smooth. Relax your eye socket and allow them to go limp.

Step 2 – Get your arm asleep

Drop your shoulder as low as possible. This would release tension on your neck.

Relax your upper arm both side.

If you are struggling to relax your arm, try tensing them a little bit then letting them become loose.

At the end, include your hands and fingers.

Step 3 – Feel your breathing

Breath in and breath out. Relax your chest and feel your lung getting filled up with air.

Step 4 – Get your legs asleep

Relax your legs. Try releasing tension from your thighs first then let the relaxation travel down to your calves.

Finally focus on your feet and ankles.

Step 5 – Clear your mind

Envisioning the following images will clear your mind and block out any distractions.

Image 1: Imaging yourself lying on a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you.

Image 2: Image you are snuggled up in a black hang bed in a pitch dark room.

If image 1 and 2 don’t work, say to yourself “Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think.” over and over again for 10 seconds.

Are you feeling sleepy already? This technique is proven to get people to fall asleep faster and longer.

Don’t require a bed

Best thing for this technique is that it doesn’t have to be done on a bed.

The US Navy actually perform this method on a chair so it will work for you on a bus or a long flight even train ride.

If you don’t see results immediately, don’t get frustrated.

Remember the pilots have to practice this method for 6 weeks before they can master it.

Of course this method will help if you are fighting against insomnia but to fight against something you must have the right tool to help. (Tools to fight insomnia)

Until next time, I hope this method helps you.
