How Do You Fall Asleep Fast?

Falling asleep can be tricky and complex for the average person. Most people with insomnia are aged between 16 and 25, during this age, a lot of people have issues with anxiety and sleep depravity. To combat this we recommend that you get some of our quick tips to help you sleep better and to make sure that you can work better after your good nights’ sleep.

how to fall asleep

Tip 1 would be to get some blue light blocking glasses. This was recommended to us by this great Youtube video How To Fall Asleep Fast? The video explained how blue light stops the production of melatonin which then causes people to be unable to sleep. If you are an insomniac then we recommend these glasses. They are cheap and affordable, yet give amazing results.

Our next tip would be to make sure that you focus on not sleeping. Yes, reverse psychology is an amazing tool in helping you fall asleep. If you use the scientific study conducted at the University of Manchester as an example, then you’ll see that nearly 80% of the patients were able to go from an insomniac to someone who can sleep easily by just using the simple tip.

Next up we would recommend taking deep long breaths to help you sleep. By focusing on your breathing your mind can drift off and start going into dreamland, not only this but taking slow deep breaths, it slows your heart rate and makes sure that you are getting into a pre-REM sleep state.

For our next tip, we would recommend making sure that your room is completely dark. No lights, no phones and no computers making a loud noise in the background. I know some of you prefer to watch your Netflix on your laptop and slowly drift off but this actually reduces the quality of sleep you’ll be getting. As humans our bodies are programmed to sleep better in completely dark rooms, therefore please turn off all of your lights and gadgets.

My search for the Next Big Thing has ended. I’m joining forces with the super-talented ninakix to co-found!

You do read Nina’s blog, right? Or you’ve read her TechCrunch post about the social network paradox? They’re definitely worth checking out. Nina is actually from the Internet.

I’m taking the role of CTO at I have just 3 responsibilities:

  • building our technology
  • creating a sustainable culture focused on speed, learning, and mentorship
  • hiring talented people that are passionate about our mission and culture

That’s like… lots of my favorite things. Giddy up!

I’ve updated my profile to share this new information on a variety of sites and networks. But those updates being very brief, I thought I’d take a second here to discuss in more detail.

As some of you know, I recently left a position as a Principal Engineer at the Walt Disney Company. Originally I came to Disney via the acquisition of Togetherville – a startup I joined in 2009. Disney is a company with a rich heritage and I was able to participate in some interesting discussions about what the digital frontier holds for such a company. But it’s also a very large organization, and I knew I wanted to do another startup as soon as possible.

There’s just no feeling like putting a new, original idea out into the wild and seeing what happens. We say start-ups are our babies. It’s true! But of our memes – not our genes. New companies are idea-babies that require an extreme commitment to raise and prepare for success at-large. But if you can do it the satisfaction of making a meaningful, lasting impact is very rewarding.

Togetherville’s co-founders, Mandeep and Raj, had an idea to make the Internet as capable a place to learn and share for kids as it is for adults. I liked that idea, and so did everyone who worked at Togetherville. I’m proud of all that we accomplished together. I learned a lot. I’ll miss all of the fantastic people I worked with there – you know who you are!
