On top of it my legs are KILLING me from dancing on Friday night, they are still soooo sore. (okay, so i'm kinda venting, but i need someone to talk to)

What helps you fall asleep? Reading is out of the question lol

  • Hypnosis tapes can help a lot --you can download podcasts, if you have an ipod to listen to them on.

    Meditation is what I do. Just gently and firmly return my thoughts to what I want to think about: the comfort of my covers... how my toes currently feel (if that doesn't bore you into sleep, nothing can), my breathing, what I'm grateful for and appreciate, etc.

    Meditators with thousands of hours experience get to do exactly what novices have to do: gently and firmly, continuously, return their thoughts to what they choose to think about. The need for practice doesn't go away with years of practice, anymore than pro football players can quit practicing 'cause they're paid.

  • Well, your mind is going to race with this for awhile. That's the way it is. Definitely turn off the electronics before bed for at least an hour. Maybe lay in bed with dim light and read for a bit to take your mind off of stuff.

  • Try melatonin it won't help tonight but it is a over the counter sleep supplement. We used to use for our teen son after football, school and social life when he could'nt slow thing down.
    For tonight IDK hang out here on CM.
