A great way to silence the mind for a while is by meditating. It is a scientific fact that every minute, around 50 thoughts are produced in our heads – a number that can go up to 50,000! Our mind jumps from one thought to another, much like a monkey on a tree. This would make it impossible for a person to fall asleep.
