I usually sleep through the night with no problem, but on the rare occasion I can't I'll read a book.

Dear Y&Y,

I may bake something in wee hours...my beautiful new pans...also a wonderful time for meditation, reading...

I often sleep in the day when I can, just to have access to those quiet hours of night...however here is a tip if you need to sleep, and that is just to eat something! Food as a soporific; a superb physician of Traditional Chinese Medicine told me that once.

I keep a book on the bedhead and read. Of course, that sometimes results in me reading all night but at least it passes the time pleasantly.

I used to fire up the computer and come on line but rarely do that now. It wakes me even more.

I usually open up Kindle and read for a bit. That usually puts me out.

You should drink a warm cup of milk to sleep more easily. If you still can not sleep, read a book or listen to classic music. They will help you relax.
Btw, you should go to sleep as early as you can, for your health.

I have a mug of hot milky chocolate before I go to bed. I put a wheat bag in the microwave and put it round my neck and I watch TV which isn't to taxing on the brain until I'm tired. If I wake in the night I get up and make some toast and decaf tea and then go back to bed.

There is a pressure point between your

big toe and the next one over. If you can place,

the heel of your other foot in this space. Just rest it

there comfortably. Next, stop the dialog of voices in

your head. Stop the chatter. You see a black wall.

Just surround yourself with the darkness,

and relax your body and your mind. With some

practice you should be able to fall asleep in no time.
