Trouble falling asleep: advice from the Twitter community

Desperately waiting to fall asleep at night: Countless Germans have this problem.

Forced sleep and the resulting consequences, such as tiredness and difficulty concentrating the next day, are almost a kind of common ailment, and quite a few of those who simply don’t want to sleep turn to pills.

It’s clear that this is probably the worst way for perfectly healthy people to slip into dreamland. In this sense, it makes sense for health reasons to rely on unlabeled sleeping pills and the like.

There are also tips to fall asleep on Twitter

In this context, a discussion on Twitter is interesting, where it is exactly this topic and users give each other tips to fall asleep.

For example, reference is made to audiobooks to enter the long-awaited snooze mode. However, a Twitter user draws attention to the small but subtle difference between audiobooks and radio plays.

He writes (spelling always in the original):

“Audiobooks are the hammer to fall asleep. Clear your head. There are brilliant speakers or readers. There are just no radio shows, they are often too annoying.”

Apparently, the sonorous and/or pleasant voice of the reader helps many people fall asleep. You know this from good podcasts, where many listeners wake up gently.

Professional guide to sleep well

Twitter user Chris recommends a specific book for the problem of falling asleep. Citation:

“The book “Sleep Training Successfully” by Tillmann Müller. The method is called “sleep compression” and involves controlled sleep deprivation. That worked wonders for me. It is important that if it is organic/psychological. There are causes that nat. You have to fix it first.”

Another uses breathing exercises:

“Breathing exercises always help me. First exhale completely until you can’t breathe anymore, don’t breathe for 7 seconds, then breathe in fully until you can’t breathe anymore, wait 7 seconds and repeat the process 3 times.

YouTube also offers ways to fall asleep

Stories like this one, suggested by another user, show that YouTube offers not only music, cooking instructions, crafts and decoration, but also a lot to help you get the restful sleep you crave.

All good advice that one or the other could try before reaching the pharmaceutical. The latter should definitely only be taken in consultation with the doctor. Better: It doesn’t even go that far.

And maybe the above tips will help. It would not be the first time that the advice of the Twitter community is totally acceptable. Because the army of social media users has long been a powerful group, and their experiences can definitely be enriching.
