Are you sick of tossing and turning unable to get any sleep? Do you think that you will never sleep again? Starting tonight you can get some better sleep awakening feeling rested tomorrow by following these suggestions.

First get in touch with anything that may be on your mind. Many times the reason that someone is not getting enough sleep is because they aren’t dealing with the difficult things, those things they don’t want to handle. Do those things and your mind will be cleared for some restful sleep.

One way to get in touch with these things that you may not even realize you are not putting off is to right before you go to sleep at night ask your unconscious mind to tell you in the morning what it is that you are not doing that if you did it, your sense of calm would come back. In the morning write these things down.

If you know what the problem is but have no idea in how to resolve it go ahead and do the same thing. Right before falling off to sleep ask your unconscious mind to come up with a solution to your problem within an hour of awakening. You may be amazed to find that you have the answer to your problem.

It is best not to have the computer or television going. This is because of the glow from the screens of the machines also interfere with being able to get your brain waves into the alpha and delta states that allow for appropriate sleep.

Here are a few easy things that you can do to ensure better sleep.

3 Hours before sleeping:

Stop eating to allow your digestive system to do its job.

Stop drinking any alcoholic beverages, This is important because though alcohol is a sedative, it interferes with the depth of sleep one gets not allowing for the rapid eye movement part of the sleep cycle. When people miss this part of the sleep cycle they tend to awaken feeling a bit groggy.

Stop drinking any caffeinated beverages including any sort of cola and especially Mountain Dew which will stimulate your system interfering with your sleep.

Stop any form of exercise 3 hours before sleep.

So what should you be doing right before sleeping?

A warm bath or shower is always good to relax yourself.

Reading a good book

Listening to some calming music

If these things ideas are not working it would be a great idea to have yourself checked out by a sleep specialist. There are many physiological reasons that one may not be getting enough sleep. Sleep apnea where one is not breathing correctly is one and restless leg would be another.
