Do you count sheep to fall asleep?
What is your bedtime routine for falling asleep the fastest?
Not for insomnia. Not for when you're ill. Just your regular, ordinary, every night routine.
I've tried this one, it's pretty good. My favorite though is something I heard on TV once. It works great. You imagine yourself in an empty room laying down with your eyes closed. Then imagine an eraser start erasing at your toes. slowly erase your body from the feet up and you will fall asleep somewhere in between. I have never finished erasing my entire body!
Ha, this made me smile. I used to as a kid, I'm sure it worked. Now I just focus on my breathing and nothing else and this usually works a treat - so long as I empty my mind.
No, but I do start day dreaming. By day dreaming, I become more likely to sleep and carry on the day dream into a real dream. However, my sleep isn't always good when this occurs.
I actually play scrabble on my nook every night when I go to bed, before that it was Sudoku. You would think "brain games" would have the opposite effect at bed time and keep my mind going but it doesn't. Within 10-15 minutes I start having a hard time focusing and that's my cue to turn it off and go to sleep.
I pray until I fall asleep. I don't remember the next morning at which point in my prayer that I fell asleep the night before. But, it works for me. A little quiet time before I go to sleep.
Like Christine mentioned, sometimes doing Soduku will put me to sleep. I have a terrible time with getting to sleep, but my husband bought me a little sleep machine that plays different sounds. The sound of the ocean will do it for me. I put the machine behind my pillow, and it's like sleeping on the beach! If none of the other methods work, it's worth a try for anyone who has sleep problems. I think my husband got this on ebay. Batteries last a long, long time. I've had the little machine for about 5 years and haven't changed the batteries yet! There are various volume and time settings. But I think I better stop typing on hubpages now and go turn on my sleep machine. Sweet dreams, all.
well you can but it doesnt really work and sometimes people say they count stars as thier looking out thier window at night
No but sometimess I visualize floating through outer space and that makes me pass out. Usually, I just take Benadryl :-)
I count backwards from 100...I usually don't remember anything past 56. But, if my husband isn't in bed yet, I turn on an audiobook and fall asleep listening to someone reading. I think it's a throwback to when my mother used to read to my brother and I before we fell asleep as children.
