Sleep, elusive sleep

How do you put yourself to sleep?

You might belong to the lucky percentage of people who simply need to drop your head on your pillow, and voila, you’re on your way to the land of zzzzzz’s. Or you could be more like me, when some sleepless nights require a bit more intervention.

My past two weeks of intense freelance writing have taken their toll on my sleep. The main issue is that when I finally do drag myself to bed, I’m too wired to fall asleep. After hours of being switched on, trying to suddenly switch off isn’t a simple option. So. Operation Sleepy Time will commence!

Here’s my plan for more effective sleepy time:
1) Stop all writing projects by 10 pm

2) Drink chamomile tea

3) Read a non-fiction book

4) No late-night texting/whatsapping/emails!
Hope this works!

  1. 10pm is really late to stop working! I usually stop working at 9-9:30, do something I enjoy till about 10 and then sleep. :p

  2. Sometimes listening to nature sounds can help. I listen to blizzards, thunderstorms, rain, and campfires on an ipod with one earphone in my ear when trying to sleep. It helps a lot.
