get comfortable in your sleeping space. concentrate on your breathing, feel the breath coming in and out of your belly, think of the breath going thru your body. Let the constant flow of thoughts fade as you focus on breath.
If you have an iPod, go to YouTube and look up sleep meditation or sleep hypnosis. It's really calming and so far after just five minutes of listening to the video I've fallen asleep. When the video is finished you don't have to worry about turning off your computer if you use your iPhone or iPod or something as t turns off automatically. It works for me... I hope it works for you too.
there are lots of different ways for different people. I think that reading untill you are really tired works well but some people think these help 1. have a shower 2. drink warm milk 3. watch a film 4. count sheep (not very good) 5. believe it or not exercise in the day or before bed will make you ready for bed. 6. get someone to read to you 7. make a dream up in your head with your eyes closed to that you can imagine it. 8. just shut your eyes and wait till you go to sleep!!!
Try not to go to bed if you are not tired.Have a snack about an hour before bed,so you are not hungry.Wear comfortable bed clothes.Getting into a made bed seems more comfortable. I like "White Noise" which is a fan.Make sure and this is important, make sure your room is very dark and quiet.Try different things.
For a long time this has happened to me, I finally found the solution, just sleep at a reasonable time, make sure you don't eat anything too sugary before bed. Read, or do a relaxing activity before bed, but not music, you might start to sing and dance, and that means energy, which you DO not want before bed. GOOD LUCK!
melatonin pills. its what your body uses to go to sleep. no worry about a overdose. it actually works and you stay asleep. 1 problem it makes you more tired in the morning and you usually get up later.
I think you should take a hot shower and drink some warm milk. I put vanilla extract in the milk, then heat it. Then I froth it with the frother machine thingy and put a pinch of brown sugar with some cinnamon on the top. It's actually really good :)
having a good nights sleep really depends what kind of person you are . In the sleeping world there are 3 kinds of people : 1 . a person that likes it pitch black and quiet (that would be me ) 2. people who like the radio on and a nightlight (my dad ) btw ( there is no age to old for nightlights ) 3. ocean waves or soft music while a medium amount of light comes in
