    RECIPE FOR SLEEP?!

     

    I can't sleep! Does anyone know a recipe for sleep? P.S. Don't say count sheep :P

    Counting sheep doesn't work what-so-ever.

    Anyway, try having a bath just before you go to bed, put bed socks on so you're warm, read a book, because it gets you relaxed and when you're tired of reading it's easier to sleep. If you have worries, then just lock them away for the night, it'll clear your head. If you have a ipod or something, download a app, i have one that i can put beach sounds on and the waves relax me, my mum is always trying to convince me to let her have it! haha, or listen to the radio quietly.

    Anyway, good luck, thats all i can think of at the moment :)

     Try shutting your eyes and counting down from 200 while listening to some quiet music that you like

    Hi! If you have a lot of thoughts going around in your head, this is what I do to relax. I imagine a door in my head which I open, and then I put in there everything that's worrying me or whatever. Then I lock it so that none of the thoughts can get out again, so then I feel more relaxed.

    I hope this helps :)

    That helps me too :D

    And, i love load music, which is really tempting to listen to but if i listen to it before trying to sleep, its take me longer, so i gradually put on softer and slower beat songs!

    Also try the more exercise you have during the day, the easier sleeping should be (just so long as you don't exercise right before bed coz that has the opposite effect!)

    I find drinking more water throughout the day helps me too :) x

     Try listening to RobertMiles- Children full length

    It's so relaxing and quite long. There is a little bit of drumming at 2 min but its good

    Hope i helped

     My mum tells me to do this thing that helps. Basically, you lay in bed, get completely comfy then you lay still like that. You go through your body slowly, starting at the toes, and relax each bit, and after a while you're normally asleep if you concentrate :)
