Do you have trouble falling asleep?
Well, weve all been there. Its 2 a.m. and youre tossing and turning. Every time you look at the clock another 30 minutes have gone by, and still not a wink of shut-eye.
According to the American Sleep Association, 5070 million US adults suffer from sleep disorders. Its estimated that around 20% of people worldwide suffer from sleep deprivation.
Insomnia can be common if people are under a great amount of stress, experiencing big life changes, or having emotional difficulties.
If you suffer from insomnia, a lack of sleep can cause hormonal imbalances, which lead to weight gain, slower reaction times, irritability, memory problems, depression, and headaches.
A good night's sleep can make the difference between a great day and a horrible day.
So if youre one of the millions of people in the world who suffers from a sleep disorder or you want to fall asleep faster, download this app to learn the foolproof trick of getting to sleep in 2 minutes or less straight from the US military.

WHY SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT FOR US:
Sleep boosts immunity
If you seem to catch every cold and flu that's going around, your bedtime could be to blame. Prolonged lack of sleep can disrupt your immune system, so you're less able to fend off bugs.
Sleep can slim you
Sleeping less may mean you put on weight! Studies have shown that people who sleep less than 7 hours a day tend to gain more weight and have a higher risk of becoming obese than those who get 7 hours of slumber.
Sleep boosts mental wellbeing
Given that a single sleepless night can make you irritable and moody the following day, it's not surprising that chronic sleep debt may lead to long-term mood disorders like depression and anxiety. When people with anxiety or depression were surveyed to calculate their sleeping habits, it turned out that most of them slept for less than 6 hours a night.
Sleep prevents diabetes
Studies have suggested that people who usually sleep less than 5 hours a night have an increased risk of developing diabetes. It seems that missing out on deep sleep may lead to type 2 diabetes by changing the way the body processes glucose, which the body uses for energy.
Sleep wards off heart disease
Long-standing sleep deprivation seems to be associated with increased heart rate, an increase in blood pressure and higher levels of certain chemicals linked with inflammation, which may put extra strain on your heart.
Remember that the pilots practiced the method over and over, and 96% of them achieved success after six weeks of practice. These weeks of practice are a worthwhile investment because once you have it down, you can nap and sleep anywhere, which will dramatically improve your quality of life.
