    I have had primary insomnia for about a year now. Insomnia will NOT, in my opinion, help heal depression, just as TOO MUCH sleep will not. I tried all the behavioral methods, switched it .5 Klonopin, and 100 mg Trazadone. After a year of learning how to talk yourself into sleep (this might sound really stupid, but I count backwards from 1000, using my fingers as guides, slow my breathing and just FALL ASLEEP around 700. I listened to sleep meditations via my mps, but finally decided on one method. After a little more than a year, I need no Klonopin, and am down to 500 mg Trazadone. It would probably be less, but I have been having side effects from the withdrawing from the Traz. Anyway, it’s been a tough year, will be off everything shortly, just being kind to my brain and body and letting it guide my withdrawal. I’m telling you, do not believe curing insomnia, in some cases, is easy, but repetition WILL ultimately prevail .Been there, done that. Mom’s brain

    I do not have insomnia, but I have in the past . I think this is a terrific way to talk to yourself (subconscious). I believe we can program ourselves to do just about anything.
    The key is as you said is finding a way to program ourselves that “resonates” and I really like the way you have worded your “simple tip” because nothing really unless we already just know it is simple until we learn it. I feel your way is a good start on some healthy ,peaceful,kind ways to be caring for ourselves.
    I believe this way we can substitute key words to become more motivated, calm, ANYTHING WE FEEL WE want or need. THANK YOU for sharing this with us.
