What people are saying about NSDR

Dr. Andrew Huberman - Neuroscientist at Stanford

'..it’s such a powerful tool. It’s a zero-cost tool that has enormous effects on not just accessing sleep and calm, but enhancing rates of neuroplasticity.' Tim Ferris show

Sundar Pichai, Google CEO

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sundar Pichai mentioned that he uses non-sleep deep as a means of relaxation and unwinding.

"So while I find it difficult to meditate, I can go to YouTube, find an NSDR video. They're available in 10, 20, or 30 minutes, so I do that occasionally."

Frequently asked questions

How to do NSDR?

There's no need to overcomplicate the practice here. Simply lay down somewhere comfortable, or even sitting in a comfy desk chair. Find a free NSDR script, put on some good quality headphones and follow the track. The good thing about these scripts is that unlike meditation, they don't require a whole lot of focus - and this is the point. Trying it out is simple, scroll to the top or head to YouTube/Google.

What can NSDR be used for?

Non sleep deep rest is a behavioural tool that can be used in a range of different ways. Although the name suggests no-sleep - NSDR can be used to help fall asleep faster/get back to sleep. It can also be used to 'supplement' a bad nights sleep. Huberman uses NSDR the morning after a bad nights sleep. During the day, scripts can be used to increase focus and increase energy/motivation. Other forms of NSDR have a wider range of applications. All in all, NSDR doesn't need a specific application and can be used throughout the day.

The science behind NSDR

Two papers in iterations of Cell Reports journal showed that a 20 minute NSDR protocol after an intense period of focused learning accelerates plasticity by 50%. This helps learn faster and the retention of new learnings is stronger. All in all, NSDR has been scientifically shown to accelerate learning.

A study out of Denmark, using brain imaging, showed that a 30 minute NSDR/Yoga Nidra script, increased dopamine resting levels in the brain area called the striatum by 65%. Putting people into a state where they're ready for action when they come out.

When to do NSDR

There's a few key times in the day you can do an NSDR script. Firstly, if you haven't had a good sleep the night before - maybe a couple hours less than usual, it's reported that an NSDR track first thing in the morning can improve the way you're feeling - even considering the rough night. Later on in the day, NSDR tracks have been shown to really help re-grain focus. NSDR tracks increase dopamine, and dopamine can help motivation/focus. Lastly, in the evening is a good time to practice non sleep deep rest. To relax before you head to bed for the evening, or if you're struggling to get off to sleep - or it's taking a while, you can put on an NSDR, do some breathwork and body scanning - and it may do the trick.
