Having Trouble Sleeping? Learn How To Sleep Quickly & Anywhere Like They Do In The Military.

A good sleep is all that most of us require, it refreshes our bodies as well as boosts our mood. However to be deprived of such a soothing and a good night sleep has various consequences that affects the body adversely.

Some of the most serious potential problems associated with chronic sleep deprivation are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure or stroke. Other potential problems include obesity, depression, reduced immune system function and lower sex drive. The benefit of this article is to address the troubles people face in trying to get a good night sleep.

The simple technique to fall asleep quickly and anywhere and at any time of the day or night, regardless of noise or light lies in our breathing. It involves no medication whatsoever but it does take practice. Firstly Lie down or sit back and close your eyes, now inhale as deeply as you can and count as you are inhaling the air; most people can get up to five seconds. 

Secondly hold the air in your lungs while you count to five. Now exhale and count again as you are exhaling. The counting relaxes your mind and takes your thought process away from the stress at hand. The breathing slows down your heart rate, and calmness spreads throughout your body.

Once you start using this process daily, you will fall asleep after ten repetitions. It’s really works, and you won't remember how you even fell asleep.
