There are few things that are better than a good night’s sleep. But sometimes something that seems so simple can be difficult to obtain.
In fact, the Sleep Health Foundation’s 2016 Sleep Australia Survey found that 33 to 45 percent of adults struggle with getting proper sleep.
“Sleep is a fundamental biological requirement for human health,” the survey states.
“Over the past 20 years there has been increasing interest in the bidirectional association between sleep and adverse health effects. Sleep disorders can affect the quality of sleep and insufficient time allowed or available for sleep can also lead to inadequate sleep or sleep quality. Specific sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), have been strongly linked to a variety of health problems and chronic diseases, such coronary heart disease, stroke, atrial fibrillation, diabetes, hypertension, depression, erectile dysfunction, nocturia, cognitive impairment and mortality risk”
Many people have problems getting a good night’s sleep because of the trouble they have falling asleep.
People, on average, take about 10 to 20 minutes to fall asleep, according to Sleep.org.
Your quality of sleep is affected if it takes longer than that to fall asleep. But there’s a military hack that claims to help you fall asleep in less than 120 minutes.
It’s a two-part method. The first part helps you to relax and the second part helps you to visualize situations that will put you fast asleep.
The first part should take around one minute to complete.
Here’s Part One:
- Relax the muscles in your face. Don’t forget your tongue, jaw, and the muscles around your eyes.
- Drop your shoulds as far down as they can go. Do the same with your upper arm, then lower arm. Do this one side at a time.
- Breathe out and relax your chest
- Relax your legs from the thigh down.
Here’s Part Two:
- Visualize you are lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above
- Next, visualize that you are lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room
- Say “don’t think” over and over again for about 10 seconds

Many people have reported success with this method.
However, some people require consistent practice to get this method to work.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, I would definitely give this method a try for a least a week to see if it works. Good luck and happy sleeping!
