How to Fall Asleep In 1 Minute

No Booze Needed

I found out how to fall asleep in 1 minute!

How to fall asleep in 1 minute, is there such a thing? Yes, and I actually figured out how to do it! For those of you who haven’t broken up with your sleeping pattern, you’re probably thinking “what’s the big deal”? But for me,  This is huge because for the last month or so,  my love affair with sleep has been almost non existent.

Laying down, and falling asleep quickly was always an issue for me. Lack of sleep wasn’t doing much for my overall appearance. My hair stayed in a bun, and my already hereditary dark under eye was super enhanced. I was a zombie.  SoI took to Pinterest in search of something that would help me fall asleep without pills and potions. Thank God,  I found  this article online claiming a technique to fall asleep in 1 minute!?

Fall asleep in 1 minute? As in 60 seconds? Um…Yes please!! My sleep deprived ass needed ALL of that! So I clicked the link and,  Omg,  heaven! (Insert Angelic harmony here!)

What It is?

I asked the same thing. “What is the fall asleep in 1 minute method?”It’s awesome, is what it is! To elaborate further,  the technique that allows you to fall asleep in 1 minute  consists of a technique called “4-7-8” breathing trick.

What you do?

To fall asleep in 1 minute, you breathe! The 4-7-8 breathing method works to help you fall asleep in 1 minute and all you have to do is,  lay down in bed (or couch, or floor, wherever you sleep)  breathe through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, and finally you exhale out of your mouth for 8 seconds. That’s it, that’s all!  and it worked like a charm. I couldn’t believe that breathing like that, helped me to fall asleep at all, not to mention in 1 minute. So crazy!

Why it works?

I couldn’t understand though, why would breathing help me to fall asleep in 1 minute? I mean I had been breathing and had been having issues falling asleep forever, so what was different about the 4-7-8 method? It works because you’re breathing at such a calculated pace while focusing on the direction of your breathing. As you concentrate, your heart rate slows down.

“By extending your inhale to a count of four, you are forcing yourself to take in more oxygen. Allowing the oxygen to affect your bloodstream by holding your breath for seven seconds, and then exhaling steadily for eight seconds. It will instantly relax your heart, mind, and overall central nervous system because you are controlling the breath versus continuing to breathe short, shallow gasps of air.” {via}

When To use it?

Use this 4-7-8 method when you need to fall asleep in 1 minute!  The coolest thing about this trick, is that you can use it anytime. This breathing technique, can be taken with you when you travel, when you’re all hyped up after work or a long day, and my favorite, because I do this a lot, when you wake up in the middle of the night and cant get back to sleep. Just start your breathing and you’ll fall asleep in no time.

When I first learned how to fall asleep in 1 minute I was eager to try it right away. Instead, I over thought it to death. So I took a shower to relax, drenched myself in coconut and lavender oils on my hair and skin, got in bed and began to breathe through my nose for 4 seconds. Needless to say, I guess I did fall asleep in 1 minute because I don’t think I remember much after that. So I am very impressed and well rested.

Now that you know how to fall asleep in 1 minute, you might also want to know how to catch up on your beauty sleep, or how to wake up prettier. Your turn, sleepy heads!
