    What To Do When You Can’t Sleep?

    Daydream in bed with my eyes closed.

    So one trick I do when I have bouts of insomnia is find something, usually a slow paced mobile game, that I will play and only play it until I fall asleep. I will only play the game at this time so I train my mind to know when I play it, it's time to sleep. Sometimes it's so effective I'll turn on the game and instantly feel so tired I just turn it off and fall asleep.

    Well usually a Panadol and glass of milk seems to do the trick. Sometimes opening your eyes and looking at the roof can also work. If its too much caffeine then some scotch can counteract it.

    I ask my SO to read poems to me.
    That's basically my ASMR.

    Go against the initial setting. Put on lights and bury yourself under blankets, make a make believe it's a warm sunday from childhood with nowhere you need to be. It's not smart but works for me (almost) every time.

    I won't sleep, when I can't sleep.
    And if its important for me to sleep for the other day, then I will plan my routine accordingly. I will sleep more a night earlier so that I won't require a lot of sleep, and then everything goes fine.

    Listen to this on a loop:

    I've fallen asleep to this several times in the middle of the day, wide awake. If it doesn't work, there's plenty of similar soundtracks out there that might be (more) effective.

    If you have insomina, do not force yourself to lay in bed with your eyes closed. It backfires. The more frustrated you get because of you can't sleep, the worse the insomnia becomes. Get up and go read something really, really boring under a dim/red light until you start becoming tired enough to attempt sleeping again. Like the dictionary, word for word.

    Drink some hot tea. Chamomile.

    Make sure your room is dark and cold.

    If music helps you sleep, make sure that it is not loud or distracting. Slow music that is easy on the ears, such as jazz or classical, is the easiest to fall asleep to. I don't think many people can fall asleep to dubstep or EDM because it's really fast and distracting.

    NO electronics. NO internet browsing in bed. Even with a red light filter. You're just going to keep yourself awake. NO TV in bed.

    If you take any medications, check with your doctor to see if it's linked to your insomnia and what you should do about it if it is. I sleep much, much better ever since I stopped taking my GAD medication. I used to take forever to fall asleep and then continuously wake up multiple times per night. Now I fall asleep within a minute and stay asleep the whole night.

    I listen to Ambient Sleeping Pill.
