I feel like I hear everyone talk at some point about having problems either falling asleep or staying asleep. And it's a miserable circumstance to be in! You're wasting time and health doing nothing when you could be (and want to be) doing a more useful form of nothing, made all the more agonizing because sometimes there's nobody to blame but you and your own brain. Have you experienced sleep troubles in your life, and have you found a fix that works for you? The kind of thing that once you tried it, you finally could rest easy and wake up the next morning feeling slightly less drained than you did last night. If you have found a fix, I'd like to hear it (and try it), and I'm sure other members of our community might be eager to try something too. Because, after all, we all deserve a good night's sleep. I have two things I try when I have trouble sleeping, depending on my reason for sleeplessness. If I'm distracted, I put on some kind of audio that I can focus on to block out unwanted noise and to give my brain one single thing to focus on, such as being read a pre-recorded bedtime story by someone with a lulling, soothing, creaky, dulcet voice. That or a white noise machine set to a similar pitch of noise I'm trying to block out, like high pitched static for blocking crickets and birds or low pitched for uncles watching football on TV in the next room. If I wake up because of hunger (which happens almost every night at about 1 AM if I exercised that evening), I have a bag of cookies right next to my pillow. The carbs feel good in my stomach, they digest easily, and the hunger stops being a problem almost immediately.
