  • You have to find something to help you relax.  (Easier said, than done. I know.)  If you can, stay in bed.  A cup of hot tea, and the TV usually work for me.    I read sometimes.   Otherwise, like now, I'm here answering questions.

  • From what I know it's best to get up out of bed if you can sleep. If it's just thoughts go sit at your dining room table with paper and warm milk and write you thoughts out. Maybe doing a 15 minute activity and then laying back down might help. Good luck.

  • I will lay on my back, take deep breaths, and start focusing on relaxing every part of my body individually. I start with my toes, and move up from there. I'm usually asleep before I get above my belly button. It gives my mind something to focus on, rather than wandering and visiting the billion tiny thoughts flying through my head.
