    • I used to use a cassette tape that instructed me to relax...one set of muscles at a time.  Believe it or not, i taught myself to be more aware of my tense-ness (is that a word?) and when i’m having trouble falling asleep, i begin at the top of my head and work my way down.  BTW...i almost never make it past my hands!

    • I have found that a sound machine works wonders for me.  The sound of waves gently rolling in or raindrops falling is so soothing.  If you can tolerate a warm drink in the evening, try warm milk with a touch of chocolate powder, not hot, but warm and the chocolate adds flavor...something in the warm milk soothes the body, it really does work.

      I know how you feel!!

    • It’s the tryptophan in the milk that helps us relax. Calcium, too. I like to have a little bit of yogurt in the evening before bed when I’m having trouble sleeping. It seems to help. Also making sure your bedroom is very very comfortable; good ventilation, maybe a little white noise, free of light from street lamps and such. I also find that if I avoid watching disturbing television shows like crime shows and the news right before bed I sleep better.

    • Reading a good book puts me out quickly.  I cannot read more than 30 minutes and keep my eyes open.

    • Gee, I must be rather selfish because if I were you, SO would be seeing the doctor because of his aching back, and sleeping on a different bed if it’s something that can’t be treated. If the sound machine bothers him, he’d be sleeping in a different room or he’d be wearing the earplugs, the kind to keep out noise, not the ear buds to listen to music. Ain’t enough love in the world that’s going to keep me from sleeping properly.
