The worst thing you can do is stare at the clock when you can't get to sleep. All of us have trouble getting to sleep sometimes and need a different approach to being lulled into that sweet slumber we all need. Sometimes all we need is a different approach to get the results we want and this is what this article is going to give you.
Try a Podcast or Audiobook - Choosing your favorite podcast or an audiobook that is non-action - one that is dense can help lull you to sleep. Let the soothing voices quiet your being, remember that it isn't about remembering and retaining the information it's about giving yourself some comforting background noise. A good podcast to try is "Sleep With Me" it is designed to bore you to sleep.
Stretch - This is something you can do without even getting out of bed, even by just putting your legs up against a wall, doing the happy baby or child's pose you can relax your body and calm your central nervous system. You can do some light leg or arm movements and exercises on your back to release any other tension you could be feeling.
Mind over matter - Try concentrating on each body part and actually tell yourself that body part is getting tired, start with your toes and say "My feet are getting sleepy" and work your way up your body. You will end up convincing yourself that you are tired and your body is relaxed. You will be surprised how effective this method is.
Do your chores - If you have been in bed for over 20 minutes and haven't been able to fall asleep, get out of bed and do the least-stimulating task you have. After spending time doing something you aren't keen on, climbing into bed will be a warm welcome and you won't have any problems falling asleep.
