Wengie’s 20 Hacks for Faster Sleep

In her video, “How to Fall Asleep FAST,” Wengie reveals 20 ways to hack sleep!


  1. Use relaxing sounds, like rainfall, to block out annoying noises.


  1. Massage the pressure point between your eyebrows to reduce anxiety and insomnia.


  1. Additionally, apply jasmine oil to the pressure point between your eyebrows.


  1. Blink quickly for 60 seconds to tire out your eyes.


  1. Set your thermostat to 65°F/18°C. Because your body temperature drops as you fall asleep, a cooler room could help you fall asleep faster.


  1. Use progressive relaxation techniques. Start from your head, and work down to your feet, tensing and relaxing each muscle.


  1. Drink a warm cup of milk with honey. Studies show that honey helps the brain release melatonin. Milk contains tryptophan, which helps you relax.


  1. Use your bed only for sleep so that your mind associates your bed with the calmness of sleep. Additionally, only wear your pajamas before bed.


  1. Pet your cat to help you relax. If you don’t have a cat, use a stuffed animal.


  1. Sleep on your left side only. This is thought to reduce heartburn.


  1. Eat tart cherries for a natural dose of melatonin.


  1. Try breathing exercises. Breathe in for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, and breathe out over eight seconds. Repeat four times.


  1. Take a hot bath or shower to lower your core temperature more rapidly.


  1. Stop using your electronic devices 30 minutes before bed. This gets your mind ready for sleep.


  1. Eat oatmeal. Oats contain magnesium, which calms the body.


  1. Imagine random things in succession. This tricks your mind into relaxing, because the brain will think it has thought about everything for that day.


  1. Put your legs above your head, against a wall. This relieves stress by relaxing your lower back muscles.


  1. Get a massage with aromatherapy!


  1. Resist the urge to toss and turn. This will help you settle down.


  1. Set an alarm for bedtime. Going to bed at the same time regulates your body’s circadian rhythms.
