Usually I listen to music to fall asleep. But lately that hasn’t been working and I don’t know what to do now.

Depends on what kind of music you listen too , Me personally I have to listen a Zen like music. No lyrics just ambiant sounds.

On nights when I sleep, I have felt a wave of tiredness and gone immediately horizontal. On nights when I have trouble, I get up and do something boring like sweep, and go to bed as soon as I feel a wave of tiredness. When neither works, I turn on the sound of rain, and empty my mind. And when none of those work, I read.

I totally recommend audiobooks. Librivox is a great way to find them. (: I used to have major issues falling asleep but something about a soothing voice is really helpful. Just make sure you listen to a clip first, some of them are terribly read..

A book always helps me :)

I usually drink chamomile tea before I sleep. Chamomile tea helps you relax supposedly make you sleepy. It has no caffeine.

Close my eyes and cross my fingers it won’t be another sleepless night. But the things I do in order to increase the chance of falling asleep is to make sure that I don’t use any computer, TV or phone 30-45 min before I go to bed. No sugar or caffeine rich drinks and I notice a tremendous improvement if I do some exercise that that. My body will be naturally tired in the evening if I am able to get a solid workout done that day. But if it’s taking me a while to fall asleep, relaxed music of some kind of a book works as well. : )

It helps me to think to something (some fact of the past, or something I hope or I like) in every little detail. I think that this way the brain gets bored or tired, and usually I fall asleep in minutes.

Usually if I’m not that tired I just can’t fall asleep at all but I find simple meditation helps me. I lie down with the covers over my face so its dark and count slowly to 10 in my head trying to match my breaths. I repeat this a few times and that tends to calm my mind.

Make sure to not eat right before bed, stay away from computer screens because it activates your brain to stay up longer. I usually try to read a book, make sure all my lights are off, taking a hot shower before bed helps as well.

Try It’s the sound of rain but I find that it helps a lot! Enjoy!

I usually try meditation before I sleep. Sometimes, just positive thinking or imagination can be the key. Reading seems to work about as well as a good 2×4.

Sometimes I do meditation or yoga before bed. But usually, I take a hot shower then some melatonin (I have trouble staying asleep).
