Most Americans struggle to fall or stay asleep. A lot of it has to do with the mind working overtime thinking about tomorrow, financial issues, or any kind of worry you can come up with. Licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Shelby Harris has a hack to stop the cycle. It’s called cognitive shuffling. Here’s how you do it: repeat random words in your head. That blocks anything else from coming forward. Before you know it, you’re asleep! TikTokers are raving about the method, so it’s worth a shot.
