I was talking about this on the air the morning and so many people called in says that they wanted to try it out! So here, let's do it together and just see if its works! It's the US Military was of falling asleep in 2 minutes.
From Evening Standard:
1: Relax your face - including your tongue, jaw, and the muscles around your eyes.
2: Drop your shoulders as low as they can go. Then relax your upper and lower arm on one side, and then the other.
3: Breathe out, and relax your chest.
4: Finally, relax your legs, from the thighs to the calves.
5: When your mind is clear, try to picture one of the following images: Lying in a canoe on a calm lake, nothing but blue sky above you; Snuggled in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room; Saying “don’t think, don’t think, don’t think” over and over for ten seconds.
