What helps you fall asleep?
Do you ever have sleepless nights? Suffer from Insomnia? What do you do to help you fall asleep?
Aromatherapy and meditation. Before getting ready for bed, I have a routine of at least 20 minutes of yoga, with only candle light, while playing a jazz and I even burn lavender oil or when I run out, use a lavender oil plug in. Once I finish my yoga, I sit and meditate for a while, focusing on quieting my thoughts. After this I am usually so relaxed that I am able to fall quickly to sleep. Hope that helps you sleep better!!
Sleepytime tea. But honestly I can never sleep, so I try to get a nap during the day and a couple hours at night. Staying away from tv and computers before bed also helps.
Honestly I have medication for that. That is a last resort. What works best as an alternative for me is;
A session of 'mindfulness' to quiet myself and recognize myself
I place with both hands my middle finger and thumb together. When I ran distance races and once a marathon I was coached when those two fingers are together we naturally relax. Works for me.
I concentrate on my breathing. I inhale as deep as possible and exhale as slowly as possible. I find where discomfort begins for each and then back away a notch where comfort is. I do not count. I focus on the process.
Then, I wake up and it is morning, later in the afternoon or evening, and at times the alarm clock went off.
Reading a book that almost made the NY Times Worst Seller List. It is a textbook on Educational Psychology (3rd Edition) by E. H. Ettinger & J. V. Connor (2008). When I was involved in co-authoring it I spent many eves "burning the midnight oil."
After it was published I could barely read a chapter before I was in deep under-cover delta-wave length sleep. All I have to do is pick up that text and begin to read on any page and before I have turned 10 pages I am "comatose."
It is now out of print; thus, perhaps the greatest sleep medication of all time is now almost impossible to procure...
i don't drink coffee or tea or milk. Just don't eat or drink anything after dinner, have a good warm bath, no computer and prayer, hit the bunk.
