We are all aware that if not getting to sleep on time troubles us, the go to method is to get a warm bath or a cup of hot chocolate to relax ourselves, but sometimes even these popular methods don’t work. If you don’t believe us, check out the research studies that prove at least 10 million people suffer from not going to sleep on time and are prescribed sleeping pills. If you don’t want to end up on the sleeping pill, here are some neat little tricks to trick yourself into going to sleep.
Squeeze and Relax Your Muscles
One of the most popular tricks to induce sleep is to eliminate any anxiety buildup from your body. The easiest way to do this is to lie straight on your back, close your eyes and take a deep breath inside through your nose. When inhaling and holding your breath, squeeze your toes. When you exhale, let your toes relax. Do this exercise with your toes, buttocks, calves, thighs, arms, chest and other muscles that you can squeeze one by one. When you have used every muscle in your body from head to toe, you should already be feeling sleepy.
Use the Left Nostril to Inhale
This surprising little trick works on many people. Simply lie on your left side and rest one finger on your right nostril and close it while breathing from the left side. Start taking deep breaths from your left nostril until you start feeling sleepy. You’ll be surprised how effective this method is, just try it out!
Try Rolling Your Eyes
This is the least popular method but it is also the easiest and can be effective for many people. Simply close your eyes and roll your eye balls up three times. Keep repeating this slowly and steadily until you start to feel sleepy.
Use White Noise
Another method that can help you sleep is to use white noise on your MP3 player. First find out the most relaxing sound in the world for you and play it on your speakers or headphones. This sound could be anything that relaxes you. It could be the wind, the water, the rain or even a hair dryer going on in the background. Figure which of the white noise works best for you and play it throughout the night and you’ll be surprised how effective it is.
