A tip to adopt in the evening or during the day
According to Dr. Kierzek, who has to fall asleep quickly between emergencies, one tip in particular proves to be extremely effective… It’s self-hypnosis.
“This technique will not only help you fall asleep, but will also improve your recovery and the quality of your sleep. Self-hypnosis can, as a bonus, be integrated into your evening routine as well as during afternoon naps.“.
The idea being to achieve a “altered state of consciousness“, halfway between waking and sleeping, by practicing abdominal breathing. To do this, simply inhale for a long time through your nose, hold your breath for a moment (two to three seconds) then exhale through mouth, slowly.
“To fall asleep quickly and easily, musical accompaniment is also very useful“, adds Dr Kierzek, who recommends the Free MP3 Hypnose site, rich in melodies.
Here, there is no need to really listen to the music: you just have to let yourself be lulled. Ready to sleep like a baby?
