What's the best way to calm your mind before going to sleep?
Sometimes I've just got too much going through my head to go to sleep. What's the best way to get my mind off of everything else? Is it counting sheep, doing math problems, or something else?
Yoga or ti chi how ever its pronounced and spelled thats what do well not really! :-D
Lie straight on the bed, and tighten your whole body.
Then relax it slowly.
Then tell yourself- relax my legs, and like that each part of your body. That time concentrate on those particular parts of your body. After completing the whole body and head, this way, just think of your favorite spot or God in your mind, and count 10 to down 0. Within no time you will be totally relaxed and fallen asleep.
Get a book, but not a good one (you'll never be able to put it down). Reading seems to help some.
Oh, i don't agree with do math problem, you can drink a cup of milk before going to sleep, milk can promote sleep.
watch TV with a cup of green tea. It helps to loose out things in your mind and start relaxing. When I do that my sleep always comes in soon.
I came here to find my answer has already been shared!
I read a bit to take my mind off the outside world, then after I turn out the light I do exactly what lex said. Lie straight, relax, and slowly relax every part of my body one by one, concentrating on relaxing each part. Toes, feet, ankles, calves, knees, thighs, hips, butt, abdomen, chest, head, arms, hands, fingers...I usually don't even get to thinking of something before I'm out.
Drinking Chamomile tea, Complete unfinished task and organize your bedroom which makes you relaxed . Walking is also great for a good night sleep.
Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll have to try a couple of them out.
I often have trouble falling asleep due to a racing mind. I absolutely have to get off the computer at least 4 hours before I want to fall asleep. I used to count sheep, can you believe there is even an App for that now. I guess you count sheep going across the screen.
I was told a couple of years ago that you should visualize yourself asleep. Works like a charm for me!
This happens to me, too. Sometimes for very good reasons, such as I've been too busy during the day, or I've been worried about something I couldn't do anything about, or have gotten upset about something, or at someone, and I can't get rid of my anger.
What seems to help me is to spend some time thinking through what's on my mind, and then bring it to God in prayer. He knows the struggle I have. He knows my weaknesses and my sins. He will show me either that I've been wrong, that I am not trusting Him, or that I need to deal with an issue I have not wanted to
Sometimes I get my Bible and I read some of God's words of comfort and hope. He usually reassures me that His love for me never changes, that I truly need Him to deal with issues and people properly.
He always calms my soul and brings me to trust Him more, and I then I am finally able to rest.
Drink a mix of Chamomile with milk
and check if the air is clean around you, maybe you will need to open some windows or doors during the day and change bed sheets.
Spiritually, Speak with God.
Physically, use lavender. Lavender oils, bath soaps, sprays, it all is very relaxing! Try bathing in lavender bed time baby bath soaps. If your not a bath person, spray your bed with pure scented lavender mist. They sell aromatherapy oils as well which are AWESOME!

What do you love more.. going to sleep or starting a day?Comfort of your warm bed and deep dreamy sleep or excitement of a new day?I love the excitement of a new day more. But it wasn't always like that, I guess it depends on what are you waking up to. And also how much you simply love to sleep.

Londongirl, I would love to visit London one day, but I've read and heard from many people how expensive a place it is to visit. Maybe you could do a hub on Visiting London on a Dime!
