Top 10 tips to getting a good night's sleep:

Post by Digger on Sun 28 Mar 2010, 4:59 pm





1. Get stimulants out of your system
well before bedtime. Nicotine should be eliminated
and caffeine should not be consumed for six to eight hours before
bedtime. Caffeine is found in many foods including teas, coffee, and
chocolate.


2. Donít take naps! This is one
of the biggest mistakes people with
insomnia make. They feel tired during the day, take naps, and thereby
compound their nighttime sleep cycle disruption.



3. Exercise during the day is
very beneficial for insomnia. However, it
should be at least four hours before bedtime. Vigorous exercise late in
the evening often energizes people and keeps them awake.



4. Make time
to relax
. Almost everyone needs time to relax and
unwind before going to sleep. Put aside busy or intense work and focus
on calming activities before lying down.



5. Move the clock. Clock
watching and trying too hard to go to sleep will
cause more anxiety and aggravate your problem.



6. Be in harmony with your environment.
Is your bedroom comfortable? Is the temperature and light to your
liking?


7. Don't read anything exciting before
you fall asleep
. This applies to TV watching as
well.


8. Have a warm, calming drink before
bed
like a mixture of warm milk, a drop of vanilla extract, and a
tablespoon of sugar.
This increases serotonin to your brain and helps you sleep.



9. Sound
therapy can induce a very peaceful mood and help relaxation
.
Some people like nature sounds; others prefer soft music, wind chimes,
or even fans.


10. Keep a notepad by the side
of your bed.
If you're having trouble sleeping because of
worrying, jot down any worries that you have and tell yourself that
you will deal with them in the morning. Writing them down can be very
therapeutic.


To me there is nothing more annoying than wanting to get to sleep and you just can't no mater what you try , one way that is guaranteed to make you sleep is listen to one of two thumbs speeches.........LOL
