For most of us, sleeping is a chore. There is no good way to make it happen and we toss and turn for most of the night before we are able to blissfully settle down. But some people can just hit the pillow and go to sleep.

Tips For Days

I figured I'd throw some tips here.

First of all, your body will get some "rest" if you just lay there with your eyes closed relaxing.

Usually people "panic" about falling asleep and that keeps them awake.

Just lay there with your eyes closed and think about something fun.

If you don't "worry" about the falling asleep part, it happens a lot faster.

If you do find your mind wandering and you're struggling to sleep, enjoy the time you're laying with your eyes closed. Feel yourself floating - do some meditation.

If you struggle with sleep the first thing you should stop doing is playing video games right before bed. I'd highly recommend no TV, no video games and no phone for an hour before bed.

Do some light reading or relaxation exercises right before bed and you will find that sleep comes much easier. You need peace and quiet to rest.

I used to really struggle to sleep. I stopped looking at screens in the evening and started reading. It helped immensely.
