Non Sleep Deep Rest aka Yoga Nidra

Andrew Huberman has studied the benefits of Yoga Nidra (non sleep deep rest aka NSDR) as a sleep aid. Yoga Nidra is a form of deep relaxation that is often used to help people fall asleep or stay asleep. Huberman has found that NSDR can be an effective tool for people who struggle with insomnia or other sleep disorders. He has personally used Yoga Nidra to fall back asleep after waking up during the night and found it to be effective in helping him to relax and return to sleep. Yoga Nidra can be particularly beneficial for people who have difficulty relaxing, as it helps to quiet the mind and release physical tension. He suggests practicing Yoga Nidra for 15-20 minutes before going to bed for best results.
