Do you have some to teach me? -_-
If you know, please tell me fast before my insomnia kills me. Thx.
Meditate before sleeping? Take a warm/hot bath? Drink warm milk?
Reading for an hour and then meditating for 15 minutes does the trick quite well. Also, avoid looking at a T.V. or computer screen for at least half an hour before sleeping (doctors recommend 2 hours but they're paranoid about these types of things)
and if you're paranoid then do what the doctor says!
I find sex is a good way to relax being sleeping
^i guess that meets all the other suggestions at the same time...
honestly peppermint tea or any herb that contains menthol which honestly like just the other day i was sippin on some of it while reading stuff on the forum and i literally passed out and woke up 10 seconds later with like 5th degree burns haha well exaggeration on the burn part but yeah its pretty crazy you get deeply relaxed and you can bearly feel your own body only the rhythm of your heart beat yup peppermint tea or you could always use some good ol' fashion sounds like rain its really nice... hahaha
Just picked up the 4 hour body by Tim Ferriss. There's a whole section on how to sleep better. Some things I've never heard of before such as taking a cold bath an hour or so before bed. Tim is good, because he experiments on himself and tells you all about the weird things that worked for him and others that participated, even if it goes against what is commonly taught. Might be worth checking out.
A cold bath, brrr. I'd rather be awake for a little longer then
Though it's really annoying just laying awake for hours not catching any sleep!
camomile tea works. Or warm milk with honey. And I think the thing about TV and computer is probably true too. Reading before going to bed might help.
And if you're awake because there are thoughts keeping you busy, write them out, that way they're on the paper, and you can banish them out of your head for a while.
Haha yeah I don't want to take a cold bath either, but it's easy to get used to something that works. There's more to it than just that, but I don't have the book infront of me at the moment.
Listen to the album 'In the Aeroplane over the Sea' by Neutral Milk Hotel
There's some other good advise in here, but this is the best so far.
Also try to avoid any strenuous activity or eating a lot for about an hour before bed, make sure your room is actually dark, exercise and eat regularly(but still not too close to bed time) a lot of other stuff like that
Rainymood.com has often helped me relax. There's also another website on which you can choose between lots of different sounds to combine them, for example open fire, rain and wind chimes, but I forgot the name of the site. v___v
I'll post the url here as soon as I've found it.
Get really tired, and have a comfortable bed.
I play Solitaire on my phone for a bit before going to sleep, it usually works.
A bottle of Brandy usually helps if all else fails.
close your eyes.
Seriously tho I find falling asleep easy if I have the TV on. Mind you, not sure how good the sleep is because I always wake up tired.
Quite a dubious (if that's the right word) and not always recommended way to sleep better - that came to my mind when I saw Alex posting here - is to get drunk and stop drinking shortly before reaching your limit. Whenever I go out and have a drink (or two or three) I usually* know when to stop, and as soon as I get home afterwards and go to bed I have absolutely no problems to fall asleep.
*only "usually" because there was one (ONE!) occasion in my life when I failed to do so. LadyCyllíeth surely remembers. v___v
