How to Fall Asleep in Under 5 Minutes, According to Hypnotists

We are always looking for effective ways to fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. (Truly, sleep is a bit of an obsession here at Byrdie.) We’ve consulted sleep specialists and researchers to learn how to conk out in record time. We’ve conducted our own sleep experiments and reported on the results. But what about a lesser-known perspective on sleep health? This time, we’re turning to professional hypnotists.

Every day, hundreds of insomniacs flock to hypnotherapy in search of help. “Hypnotherapy is by no means a magic bullet, but it is a very powerful tool to facilitate a peaceful night’s sleep,” says hypnotherapist John McGrail.

According to hypnotists, there are a handful of factors that most commonly keep people from sleeping well. We consulted three trusted hypnotherapists to identify those factors and offer their best techniques for correcting them. Keep scrolling to learn hypnotists’ top five tricks for falling asleep fast.

4. Eliminate alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and refined sugar before bed.

According to our hypnotists, this is the list of foods you should avoid at nighttime if you want to fall asleep quickly. “Caffeine effects can last for several hours, so the chances of it affecting sleep are significant,” explains Incredible Hypnotist Richard Barker.

A glass of wine before bed sounds relaxing, but our experts say that won’t help either. “Alcohol initially will have a sedating effect but can lead to frequent arousals during the night, causing non-restful sleep,” Barker says.

5. Use a hypnosis app.

Here is the one exception to our hypnotists’ technology rule. Experts agree that listening to a meditation or hypnosis app before bed can help you relax deeply and fall asleep fast.

“Just before you go to bed, put some headphones on and lie peacefully in bed as you listen to the audio,” Barker says. “It will teach you how to declutter your mind and remove any thoughts or anxiety that are stopping you from sleeping properly.”

Barker says that more you repeat this nightly process, the faster sleep will come naturally. Try listening to an app like Relax With Andrew Johnson ($3) for 30 nights in a row, no skipping, and you should feel results.
