A very large part of the adult population over forty sleeps very little at night. And as we all know sleep is very important, our bodies need sleep to rejuvenate and be healthy as do our brains, so what’s going on and why are most people having a hard time sleeping these days and how do I get some sleep.
What you do and how you feel in your waking hours determines your sleep. Part one on how to sleep is about the hour before you go to bed. That hour before you go to bed needs to be positive, if you read before you go to bed, you have to read something that makes you feel good, that makes you laugh and smile.
If you watch television before you go to bed, make sure the show is positive and makes you laugh and smile and feel good. If you like to watch the news before you go to bed, then watch your news but watch something positive or happy for an hour after that, turn on a movie that makes you smile or laugh or feel good. Read a book, do some yoga, go for a walk, and if you are going with your spouse or friend make sure you spend that time talking about the good things that happened in your day, not the things that need fixing. And by the way if you have a dog and you start a night time routine of walking at night, you will both be Very Happy you started this new positive habit, and always be safe, walk places that make you feel good.
Essentially that hour before you go to bed needs to be positive, you see, what you think about and feel before you go to bed is what you will marinate in all night.
Have you ever had the experience where you watched a scary movie and you woke up in the middle of the night and someone was chasing you that resembled something or someone in that scary movie. That hour before you go to bed is crucial, you need to feel good, sound simple, try it, try it for a week, then try if for three weeks, your still going to wake up but when you do your not going to be as scared and it will be easier to flip yourself into a good place and go back to sleep. We will talk about flipping later.
