Man Shares Army Technique To Fall Asleep In 2 Minutes

Does it actually work? Read on.

Fitness coach Justin August shared a trick that may just help you sleep better in the long run. The “mind-blowing” trick aims to help you reach a complete shutdown within two minutes, wherever you are.

This is an actual military technique taught for soldiers, particularly fighter pilots. As they need to be on their best to maximize their focus, knowing this technique is mandatory.

“This technique was developed in the military to allow soldiers to fall asleep at any time, any place – even on the battlefield when the environment is extremely uncomfortable and there’s a lot of noise happening,” Justin explains.

“Sleep for a soldier is crucial. According to my research, this was developed mainly for fighter pilots who need 100 percent of their reflexes and focus, which we all know decreases with the lack of sleep.”

He begins narrating the step-by-step to reach that relaxation.

“Start by relaxing the muscles in your forehead. Relax your eyes, your cheeks, your jaw, and focus on your breathing.”

“Now go down to your neck and your shoulders. Make sure your shoulders are not tensed up. Drop them as low as you can and keep your arms loose by your side, including your hands and fingers.”

Then feel the way the “warm sensation going from your head to all the way down to your fingertips.” Afterward, he continued, “Take a deep breath and slowly exhale, relaxing your chest, your stomach, down to your thighs, knees, legs, and feet.”

“Again, imagine this warm sensation going down from your heart all the way to your toes.”

And there’s a very important factor that’ll decide if you’ll be able to relax enough to fall asleep.

“It’s really important to clear your mind of any stresses. To do this, think of two scenarios,” Justin guided. “One – you’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you. Two – you’re lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch black room.”

“At any time when you start thinking of anything else or you start getting distracted, repeat these words for 10 seconds: ‘Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think.’”

In order to gain the maximum benefit, you have to keep on practicing this routine for six weeks. The coach added, “Apparently, 96 percent of people who mastered this technique are actually able to fall asleep within two minutes of shutting their eyes.”

The clip has gone viral with over 3.6 million views and many shared they’re trying it out, including Justin himself!
