Five Sleep Hacks, When you Can't sleep

Brightr Waves of Sleep Pillows blog post 5 sleep hacks when you can't sleep

Can't sleep at night? We have put together 5 sleep hacks to help you fall asleep easier.

1. The 4-7-8 method

Breathe in through your nose for four seconds.
Hold your breath for seven seconds.
Slowly breathe out through your mouth for eight seconds.
Repeat this process until you fall asleep.

2. Watch the sunset or fake the sunset.

Put the gadgets away and watch the sunset. This will trick your body into a natural stage of falling asleep. If it is being winter, that can be difficult. Automatically dimming lights offer the ability to fake the sunset. Try it.

3. Find the right pillow & sleeping position

Tossing and turning during the night trying to fall asleep can be improved by finding the best sleep position and the pillow that supports you in that sleep position.

4. The Military method

Relax your entire face, including the muscles inside your mouth. Drop your shoulders to release the tension and let your hands drop to the side of your body. Exhale, relaxing your chest. Relax your legs, thighs, and calves.
Clear your mind for 10 seconds by imagining a relaxing scene. If this doesn’t work, try saying the words “don’t think” over and over for 10 seconds. Within 10 seconds, you should fall asleep!

5. Tell yourself to stay awake
Also called paradoxical intention, telling yourself to stay awake may be a good way to fall asleep faster.

Let us know if they work for you.
