Apparently it’s quite possible to fall asleep fast… like within 2-minutes fast… (via the Military):

  • Relax the muscles in your face, including tongue, jaw and the muscles around the eyes
  • Drop your shoulders as far down as they’ll go, followed by your upper and lower arm, one side at a time
  • Breathe out, relaxing your chest followed by your legs, starting from the thighs and working down
  • You should then spend 10 seconds trying to clear your mind before thinking about one of the three following images:
    • You’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you
    • You’re lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room
    • You say “don’t think, don’t think, don’t think” to yourself over and over for about 10 seconds.

And 96% of folks who practice this within 6 weeks can get it to work.

have to try this.
