[NSDR Method]

“The best work ethic requires a good rest ethic.” — Kevin Kelly

Here’s the fastest way to restore your energy:


Dr. Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist and professor at Stanford.

He coined “Non-Sleep Deep Rest” — a technique to quickly recharge the brain, originally known as Yoga Nidra.

(Google CEO Sundar Pichai swears by it).

It reduces daytime fatigue and sharpens your focus. In other words, you get the benefits of sleep without actually falling asleep.

The best part?

It only takes 10 minutes…


Step 1.

Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 10+ mins.

Get into a comfortable position (ideally lying down).

Step 2.

Listen to a Yoga Nidra or NSDR track.

I love this one from Huberman. (Can’t believe he gives it away for free).

You’ll be guided through 10 mins of breathing exercises and body scans.


The breathing exercises put your body in a state of deep relaxation (by slowing your heart rate).

The mental body scans help your brain waves decrease in frequency. (Your thoughts can slow from 35 thoughts per minute to 1-3)!

If done right, a 10-minute session can equate to 1-2 hours of restorative sleep.

Other benefits of NSDR:

  • Helps with memory retention

  • Enhances rates of neuroplasticity, which can promote learning

  • Relieves stress

  • Improves cognitive function

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Enhances focus and mental clarity

  • Can help with pain management

NSDR is just one method in Huberman’s incredible toolkit for sleep. Check out all 12 of his tips.
