How to fall asleep quickly if you’re anxious.

Restlessness and stress can make it difficult to fall asleep. If you find yourself replaying different situations in your mind as you prepare for sleep, your brain remains active, making it harder to doze off. Here are a few tips on how to fall asleep quickly:

Method 1: Military Technique

  • Relax your entire face, including the muscles inside your mouth.
  • Drop your shoulders to release 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 and focus on something peaceful and comforting for 10 seconds. If needed, repeat the phrase “don’t think.”

Method 2: Battling Anxiety

The next two techniques are based on exercises we’ve previously discussed that help manage stress levels and promote relaxation before sleep. Them may also help to fall asleep quickly.

4-7-8 Breathing:

  • Exhale completely through your mouth.
  • Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.
  • Hold your breath for a count of seven.
  • Exhale completely through your mouth to a count of eight.
  • Perform this exercise gently and maintain awareness, as dizziness may occur.

Method 3: Progressive Muscle Relaxation:

  • Tense all the muscles you can and hold them as long as possible, then suddenly release.
  • As the muscles relax, they’ll become even more relaxed.
  • You can try tensing and relaxing different parts of your body, holding for 10 seconds each time: eyebrows, eyes, lips, neck, hands, and so on.

You can find numerous techniques to help you fall asleep quickly. You can try any of them, but it’s important to find one that suits you. 

Regardless of the method, they all center on relaxing your body, so prioritize achieving a tranquil state before bedtime.
