    You raise some good points here. We don’t have to accept bad sleep. There are lots of things we can do during the day (as well as what you mention above at night) to improve our sleep-readyness! For example, taking regular breaks at work – get up, walk around, go outside and smell those roses! This definitely improves the quality of your sleep at night, believe it or not as your brain gets re-wired to a zone where it’s ‘OK to rest’ so sleep comes easier. THere are also lots of non addictive, homeopathic and herbal supplements you can try for various issues – whether anxiety is keeping you awake, or shift work (circadian related issues) or a magnesium deficiency – visit a health shop to learn more about what you can do naturally! Good luck!

    I chuckled through this article as I barely slept last night and spent the whole night wondering how I was going to make it through today! Your advice is good, and next time I can’t sleep, I won’t dwell on it, as those thoughts are most likely what is keeping me awake 🙂

    I’ve found prayer also helps. Sometimes, I take a Xanax to knock the edge off the anxiety and helps me relax enough to sleep.

    Good sleep is the most important gift I give myself. In some ways I try to plan at least the later part of the day around it. It makes such a difference.

    Pretty generic advice.
