Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

When I was little, my Mom used to calmly sing "relax the toes, relax the feet, relax the legs" all the way up to my head and it used to frustrate me and now as a 19 year old, when I can't sleep, I hum the very same tune in my head... (:

I'm hoping some of these will work for me. I've tried quite a few things but still struggle with getting to sleep on maybe 3-4 nights a week.

I'm not struggling to sleep at the beginning but I want to avoid waking up in the middle of the night 😩 it's tiring...

If I struggle getting sleep, I imagine my perfect future life to be in a positif mind

Does anyone know why it takes me an hour or two to fall asleep? Even on days I feel tired

@alka I have that problem too - lately it doesn't matter what time I get to sleep, I always wake at 7am even on weekends 😪 totally broken atm! And I have a cold atm too so it's a real struggle

It's called " Your Present: a half hour of peace", by Susie Mantell. It's wonderful.

Good advise, thanks
