How to sleep?

I’ve seen many people, including me, struggling to sleep. After many hours of research and attaining divine knowledge at 3 a.m, I’m writing this post for my fellow human beings so that this knowledge would be passed down to generations. Sleep is a gift. Sleep is a time-traveling portal. Sleep is what people do at night.. (most people πŸ˜€) . So, why is it that we find it difficult to sleep on time?

Every day I would target to sleep by 10pm and end up sleeping by 1 or 2am. What happened? My inner soul that is awake tells me that, people can only sleep if their mind is ready to sleep. Sometimes the body gets ready to sleep 2 hours earlier before you can actually sleep. The mind stays awake, making you do some mischievous and stupid things. Even when your body tries to sleep, your mind won’t allow it.

Tips for Sleeping

After great research I’ve gathered this list of simple techniques that helps you to sleep faster. Make sure you follow them. May the force be with you! Okay, so here we go,

  1. Put your mobile phone away, keep it 6ft away from you. (social distancing πŸ˜„)
  2. Turn OFF your TV, if possible, unplug it from the power source.
  3. Don’t give place to “Just one more episode”. You will sleep only when the whole season is complete.
  4. Ask your talkative sibling/friend to shut the crap up.
  5. Most importantly, turn OFF the damn light.
  6. Just lie down on the bed.
  7. Turn OFF your mind and all equipments that generate noise.
  8. Stop overthinking about problems that never exist.
  9. Imagine a calm place. A place where you feel secure and comfortable (not the bathroom πŸ˜€).
  10. Finally, you have to sleep. (Yes, what else did you expect? Some magic spell? πŸ€·πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ)

Okay folks, so I’ve shared some eternal tips for sleeping πŸ˜€. Please let me know in the comments if you follow any other secrets, it would be helpful for others. Also, this is a sarcastic post, please take it light. Hope you all enjoyed reading. Stay tuned. More to come..! Have a good night..!. πŸ˜€πŸ˜΄

        Expert says, usually spirits constantly stares you at night, therefore you sometimes suddenly wake up in the middle of night.
        And that is scary πŸ™‚

  1. I go through this every single night. What works most of the time is to read a book that is so agonizingly boring that your brain disengages. But be careful! When it works, if you’re not laying properly, you will wake up when the book smacks you in the face because it’s angry you found it boring πŸ˜„
    Seriously though, if you can a boring book (with PAPER!) with teeny tiny print, you will fall asleep. But it will take you a few nights of getting beaten up by an inanimate object before you find that perfect balance.
    Sleep well! πŸŒ›

    1. Lol.. I enjoyed reading this comment.. Exactly..! You should try reading some academic books.. They have the power to put you to sleep instantly..

      Thank you Marla.. Your positive words motivate me to write more..! Keep supporting..! Have a great day..!

      1. Actually academic books are horrendous, but they could be interesting. Pick one on a subject that bares little resemblance to your personal interests. So, if, as far as your personal theory goes, birds only exist for teo reasons: to poop in your can the day you it washed, or to poop on your head the day you got it styled, then get a book about birdwatching which explains this one v that ones claws. Goooood niiiiiight! πŸ˜‚
        Or a book that should be sold WITH a dictionary. The author is a poor author to start with and doesn’t bother to write to connect with his audience (s)he just wants to use long and convoluted wording. Your brain will say β€œI’m bored. Let’s think about something else” and when you don’t, it goes to bed. It’s as good as any pharmaceutical option out there. But it has to be BORING to you. It’s probably an interesting page Turner to someone else, but to you it’s almost torture. Only do academic texts if your actually in school. They only have extraordinary powers then LOL

  4. Your post perfectly describes a common modern dilemma and your remedies are spot on! Loved the point on social distancing …with your phone LOL, very well said haha. On a serious note I would add slow long smooth breathing along with calming environment/visualization, especially longer exhalations do the trick πŸ™‚
