How to get better sleep? Jul. 7th, 2012 @ 12:44 PM Reply

I always feel tired and have rings under my eyes....I need more sleep

I've tried to force myself to get up early every day in the hope that I would be able to go to sleep earlier, but things aren't working out yet...

Any faster or alternative ways of changing your sleeping pattern so you get more sleep?

Take a sleeping aid.

step 1: exercise more if you have a sendatary life style.
step 2: avoid using the computer or watching television late at night
step 3: have a warm shower before bed to give you a sensation that your body is cooling down rapidly after the shower.
step 4: keep your room as dark as possible when you are about to go to bed.
step 5: sleep.

I don't think I can re-emphasize the exercise point enough. That's your biggest ally in fighting insomnia and out of whack sleep schedules. I'm not so sure your third step helps much at all, and step five is redundant, but the other two are good.

Also, do you use your bed for things other than sleep? If so, stop. Now. Your body will be accustomed to not going to sleep when you're in your bed, where you use your laptop all the time/watch tv/fap for hours. Use your bed for sleep. Nothing else.

Exercising helps you sleep. As for trying to wake up earlier everyday, investing in an alarm clock could help.

I've always found that reading a book before bed always helps me sleep better. Maybe you could try that.

Get plenty of exercise so that you'll be tired.

Do some sports until you tire yourself out or just run around your town until you can't run anymore and you can feel your body tiring out.

I've been getting insomnia lately, too. Don't worry about getting sleep. Just relax and let it happen. Don't focus your mind on anything at all, no matter how mundane. Just let go and completely let your mind wander. I have this problem.

Sleep earlier and don't think about going to sleep when you lay down. You'll go to sleep in no time.

Sleeping with a loud fan in my room gives me incredible dreams. I guess the white noise deprives me of hearing so my brain makes shit up or something, I don't know.
