I've caught it. Fortunately, it's not treatable.

Getting to sleep; An experiment

Hi there!

So, last night as I lay in bed wide awake at 2:30am, fully aware of my 8am alarm I got an idea for a new experiment. I am going to try, for the next week, 7 different methods to fall asleep quicker that I have found on the internet. I will report back everyday with whichever one I have tried the previous evening and let you know how it went. Why am I doing this? Because I struggle to sleep more often than I’d like and sleep is key to a healthy lifestyle. I also imagine I’m not the only one who struggles to get to sleep!

Here are my 7 sleep remedies;

  1. A 10-minute yoga routine from Greatist.
  2. Inhale through my left nostril (this seems absurd) from the author of Sleep Better With Natural Therapies.
  3. Avoid any screens (laptops, phones, tablets, TV) 30-minutes before bed.
  4. Loosen my muscles, group by group from WikiHow.
  5. Follow a specific breathing routine, again from WikiHow.
  6. Count sheep.
  7. Listen to music.

I will go through each of these, starting with number 1 tonight (February 27th) and shall update you tomorrow on how it went! I’ll tag each relevant post with SleepExperiment to keep track in my archives.
