I say goodnight to all of my body parts. Good night toes, good night right foot, good night left foot............................ Usually by the time I get to my upper body, I'm asleep. I guess it's kind of like counting sheep, it takes my mind off of a good day or bad day.

That is a well-known technique. I have seen it also described as the easiest way to get to an "out of body experience". I have no idea if such things actually exist. Does anyone here know? Is it just more nonsense?

I've never had an "out of body experience" and it just sounds like nonsense to me.

A prescription for a muscle relaxer. Ok only occasionally. Most of the time warm milk or Nighty Night tea.

I haven't in the past, but I bought some recently, as I have been going through a stressful time.

I haven't but I've had people tell me they have positive results.

Doctors always tell me not to do it but a good video game always helps me. It removes the thoughts of the day for me which helps. Otherwise, some music like Kenny G or Jim Brickman is great.

A mug of hot chocolate,  and my warm electric heat pad, and a microwave wheat bag around my neck.

When I was young the sound of my mum drying her hair use to make me fall asleep, now when I dry my hair my partner falls asleep.

Dear Da Yun,

For me, it is the white noise of the trains going by. When I was born my family lived by the railroad track, and now 70 years later I live in a small town where each day 81 trains pass. So comforting, lonely, soothing.

Two things. I like to read in bed and when the eyes get tired I just drift off.

And I seem to sleep better if I turn off my computer early in the evening.

Welcome to blurtit, Da Yun.

Da Yun! Working at night really makes me sleepy! However, reading can also be a
pretty good soporific, especially if it is a French book or some sort of
magazine. Lately, I have noticed scented candles and dim lights were just as
effective! Hope to have answered your question and do have a good night!

Audiobooks and guided hypnosis. For audiobooks, I enjoy some academic stuff, and lectures would do great service. And for guided hypnosis, I listen to Sleephypnopill. Hope this will help.
