Insomnia is a very real problem for a lot of people that affects their daily lives in a huge way. Can you imagine being tired all of the time, but not be able to do anything about it? People with insomnia have most likely tried every trick in the book with no luck, but maybe this one will work! If you don’t have insomnia but perhaps just have trouble drifting off into dreamland, try this method and see if it helps you catch some Zzz’s!
