If you don’t have sleep problems, you’re one of the lucky few. However, if sleep usually avoids you the moment you rest your head on your pillow, you may have already looked for ways to help you sleep better at night. One method is to hire a mindfulness guru who will provide you with relaxation techniques so that you can drift off to sleep in no time.
One-Minute of Watching This Video will Take You to Dreamland
But there’s no need for a guru for this technique. All you need to do is to watch this video and after one minute of watching, you will fall into at least three hours of sleep. Watch the clip, which is almost 1:20 minutes and you will find a robot talking, urging you to calm your senses. You will soon find yourself more relaxed as you listen to the robot’s voice telling you to take a deep breath into your nose and exhale softly through your mouth. You will then hear him saying that you should slow down your breathing until you achieve that calm rhythm.
He will once again tell you to inhale, but this time, you should be calmer than when you first started. Now, exhale once again and you will feel more relaxed. He will tell you to inhale and exhale three times. He will encourage you to continue the breathing exercises calmly and slowly. By now, you probably feel sleepy as the tension and stresses leave your body.
If the robot’s annoying voice did nothing to calm you and help you relax, you’re not alone. It is a prank that went viral during April Fools’ about how a one-minute video could give three hours of sleep. It is indeed difficult to relax while the robot talks to you as if its voice could help you exterminate stress. Go ahead and get your revenge by sharing the video to your friends who are looking for a new, modernized “relaxation technique.”
Bonus: The Most Relaxing Song
This one though is real. According to science, the most relaxing song comes from a band from Manchester called Marconi Union. The video is for the song, Weightless, which was released in 2011 where it topped the list of the most relaxing pieces in music. The video for Weightless features a lighted drone that flies above Lake District’s vast body of water.

Science approves of the video in which it is said to have the ability to slow down your heart rate, while giving you more benefits, such as reduced blood pressure and even lower levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that your brain releases when you are stressed. Therefore, when there is decreased cortisol, you become more relaxed, making it easier for you to sleep faster.
