People who sleep six hours or less are regarded as tough, competitive and full of ambition. A person who sleeps more is perceived as someone who lacks what it takes to be successful. The question is, can a person stay healthy when he is sleeping less than seven or eight hours, the quantity universally accepted? Do all the people need to sleep eight hours or more to have a great daytime performance and have great health at the same time?
Quality Over Quantity
If we study some of the most prolific people in the history, the time needed to sleep becomes absurd and irrelevant. For example, Thomas Edison slept for about three to four hours each day and regarded sleep as a waste of time. There are others like Albert Einstein who claimed to need at least ten hours of sleep to function well. Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, is said to be functioning on three to five hours of sleep. So, how much you sleep is not the problem, the quality of your sleep is. Some meditators claim they are good to go with less than three to four hours of sleep per night, which is insane in comparison to normal perception.
No Natural Sleep
The real issue with sleep is the quality. Most of the sleep we have these days is very light. YouTube keeps us awake during the day and even at night. The bigger problem we face today is that of Brain Numbing.
Most people these days are stuck with their laptops and cellphones in bed, watching videos and chatting until they can numb their brains to fall asleep. Natural occurrence of sleep isn’t happening to people living in the twenty-first century.
Brain-numbing is turning into a ritual. Every night, after dinner, people sit with something they think is entertaining them. They sit back and start feeding the brain with some form of entertainment until their brain can’t take any more of it. Every night, people in our current society are habituating themselves to brain collapse. And that means your brain is going to need a lot more sleep than it usually requires.
While this is one of the many problems people face with sleep, there is a solution. Start practicing Nitaai Breathing.
Ready to Sleep
Nitaai Breathing is the optimal solution to improve your sleep quality. Whether you think your body needs eight to ten hours of sleep or four, practicing Nitaai Breathing will make sure whatever sleep you get is quality sleep.
When you practice Nitaai Breathing, it cllears your mind off other unnecessary thoughts, that are responsible for degrading the quality of your sleep. It also detoxifies your body from a lot of negative toxins. The positive life-giving chemicals and hormones that are produced by your body by humming or listening to the “Nitaai” sound are then utilized to refresh and regenerate your body.
The idea of Nitaai Breathing is simple. All you have to do is make sure you spare at least 5-10 minutes, before you hit the sack, to resonate or listen to the “Nitaai” sound. The next morning, you will get up refreshed and ready to take charge of your day. Every day will be a new day, a new opportunity, a new beginning!
