How patting helps in sleeping betterWith world around us in chaos, thinking about patting is something we would not do. But sleeplessness is a huge problem. It would not be an exaggeration to say 1-5 people suffer from sleep disorders.
We all slept on our parent's shoulders as kids and got patted on our backs till we slept. It definitely is one of the surest ways to put someone to sleep. Multiple TEDtalk participants claim that patting on yourself or thing next to you can achieve the same effect , making you sleepy in minutes. So how does patting works?
When you get pat on by someone : according to me, your body, your heart especially adjusts to the slow and incessant rhythm of pats. And we all know how directly heart rate connects to sleep. By incessant rhythm keeping, heart beat adjusts to comfortable level and sleep takes you over.
When you pat on yourself or something : you are forcing your mind and body to produce an incessant constant rhythm. This is an utterly taxing act. This forces your mind to sleep.
