We Tried TikTok's Sweatshirt Hack To Sleep Like A Baby. Here's How It Went - Health Digest



According to Callie Galey, start by folding a sweatshirt of your choice in half with the sleeves left to hang down. Then, place it over the top half of your head, leaving your nose and mouth open. Then, lie down and use the sleeves of your sweatshirt (now directly behind your head) to wrap thick fabric around your face. This creates a sort of cocoon covering your entire face, except for your nose, mouth, and chin. “It’s so comfortable. I don’t know how to explain it. It works wonders,” concluded Galey. 

Getting in bed and following the hack step by step felt odd. At one point, I even burst out laughing. But once I had the sweatshirt properly wrapped around my face, I felt instantly calmer. The room was darker, the sound around me reduced, and best of all, I didn’t have the uncontrollable urge to reach for my phone and look at the notifications. 

Something else I noticed was that with my head covered this way, I became more aware of my breathing, which I tried to slow down. This relaxed me even further. Soon, however, a sense of panic set in about not being able to disentangle myself from the sweatshirt if the need arose. I also started to feel warm. So the sweatshirt came off quite early in the night, and I went to bed with it splayed next to me (not around my face).
