This book tells its readers how to relax, and also tells how to fall asleep within two minutes. The US military itself uses this method. Ackman wrote, "The US Navy Pre-Flight School developed a scientific method to fall asleep day or night, in any conditions, in under two minutes. After six weeks of practice, 96 percent of pilots can fall asleep in two minutes or less. Even after drinking coffee, with the machine gun being played in the background."

If you also want to practice the same method, then follow the steps below:
- The first step is to clear your mind. For this, it is recommended that you relax all the muscles in your face. Drop your shoulders and rest your arms.
- Then breathe and relax your chest. Then relax your legs. All steps must be followed in the same sequence.
- In the next 10 seconds, clear your mind of everything. Imagine you're lying in a pitch-black room on a comfortable sofa. If you are struggling, say the words "don't think" repeatedly. This can supposedly help as well
If you follow all these steps, you should be asleep. Ackman said that this technique was especially useful for people in the military who were in dangerous scenarios or for those who were coping with the horrors of war. And according to another recent study, getting a night sleep between six to nine hours can help offset the heart conditions. Some other studies have also shown the disastrous effects sleep deprivation can have on the body.
Even though we don’t understand its importance, sleep is super essential for normal brain activity and healthy life. If you need to sleep quickly or you are struggling to get to sleep at home, you can also give a try to this US army technique. This technique has worked for World War II pilots; it can certainly work for you as well. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WONDERFUL ENGINEERING]
