Train your brain to fall asleep soon
If your day is stressful it will take long time for you to sleep, otherwise in normal condition you will take little time to fall asleep. Brain training is not a simple thing it is a long term process. You must put on man efforts to train your brain. When you’re done with it the entire process will become effortless for you.
Understand the training process
The brain training process can take months even years, it’s all depends on how far are you wish to go sleep faster. But it is not very difficult and it won’t even take long time the only challenge is maintaining the consistency.
Have you ever been felt very tired and fall asleep fast? Have you ever floated off watching a movie? Or go to sleep under 2 minutes after lying down? If you’ve done it before, you can do it again. If you create the right conditions for the brain, you can do it.
Your brain is not trained to sleep faster just you can reach the results by practicing this process this is similar to the physical exercise. First if you want to sleep faster you must make your brain to drop all the activities and move on to sleep when you wish. This is the real essence of this process. If your brain is not ready to sleep you will never feel asleep.
Your brain is active and energetic even when you are sleeping, in different modes of consciousness – beta (waking), alpha, theta and delta phases. When you’re lying and wanted to go asleep, you’re waiting for a transition to another mode. If your brain is not trained it may take time for this, when it is not trained you are going to just lay down, tossing and turning, burden yourself with other thoughts until it’s ready to change its state. The brain will remain lazy if you don’t give it incentives.
Your conscious mind wanted to go to sleep, but it’s not ready – the unconscious is. If it’s not in a hurry to sleep the conscious mind will have a hard time to make it. In fact, the subconscious will continue putting up distracting ideas and thoughts instead of letting you relax and sleep.
A trained subconscious mind is obedient – when the conscious mind says to go to sleep, it does so. But this only works if you are feeling tired or sleepy.
When you feel drowsy during a day time, take 20 minute nap. Just use a timer or an alarm. Begin the timer when you lay down. You have just 20 minutes for this activity – whether you sleep or not! Don’t force it, just relax and try to sleep. If you fall asleep – great. If you just lie for 20 minutes – also great. If you sleep for a period of that time, great too. It is not necessary to take nap every day do it often when you really wanted to do it.
Next is wake up at the same time every day. set the same alarm every day and wake up immediately once the alarm goes off. Go to bed at the time when you require sleeping. By this way you are going to send message to your brain that you have only limited time to sleep and you are going to get you morning. So if your brain wants to sleep it must tune itself to go to sleep and use maximum time for sleep.
Avoid coffee and chocolates as much as possible because these are the obstacles because the brain depends on a stimulant to keep it moving when it needs too. If you take away it from your daily diet, the brain quickly learns. By removing them and the extra snooze time, the brain learns that it’s only option is to go to sleep fast or it won’t get enough rest. Teach your brain that sleeping is the limited resource instead of oversleeping and telling yourself it is ok.
Once you become master in getting 20 minute naps, you can try to take shorter ones. Gradually reduce the time, 15, 10 then 5 minute naps. Although short, they are especially refreshing.
Once you’ve tailored to this process, you can stop the process, ditch the timer and wake up whenever you want. In time you’ll see the results. You can add the caffeine back in your diet, but do so after a couple of months. Take naps daily, and use an alarm for getting up at a specific time in the morning.
Regular exercise also helps. Cardio helps to re-balance hormones and neurotransmitters, which are involved in the sleep cycles.
If you eat a heavy diet and don’t exercise, you have smaller chances to success.
