Struggling to get a good night’s sleep? Insomnia can impact your health, both mentally and physically. But don’t worry, we’ve got a quick and easy solution for you – a 12-minute technique that might just transform your sleep.

The 12-Minute Insomnia Cure:

Let’s jump straight into the technique… It’s straightforward and won’t take much of your time.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Mindful Breathing (4 minutes): Start with some deep breathing. It helps to calm your mind and body. Breathe in slowly, then breathe out. Repeat. Try to keep as calm as possible, allowing yourself to feel every breath.

  2. Progressive Muscle Relaxation (4 minutes): Tension in your muscles can keep you awake. We’ll fix that. Tense each muscle group in your body one at a time, then relax. Move from your toes to your head. You’ll feel the difference.

  3. Visualisation (4 minutes): Now, let’s use your imagination. Picture a peaceful place. It could be a beach or a forest. Imagine the sights, sounds, and smells. This mental escape can help you relax.

Remember, make these 12 minutes your own. Adjust them to suit what works best for you.

Tips for Long-Term Insomnia Management:

Once you’ve tried the 12-minute technique, consider these habits for better sleep in the long run:

  • Consistent Sleep Schedule: Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. This helps regulate your body’s internal clock.

  • Relaxing Bedtime Routine: Create a calming routine before bed. It could be reading a book, taking a warm bath, or listening to soothing music.

  • Limit Stimulants and Electronics: Avoid caffeine and electronic devices before bedtime. They can interfere with your sleep.
