How can you make yourself go to sleep when your not tired?

Question Posted Thursday May 10 2012, 8:55 pm

I try to make myself go to sleep early and everything. But I just lay in my bed tossing & turning trying to make myself go to sleep. I have to wake up at 5 a.m in the morning and I always oversleep. When my alarm clock goes off I just turn it off and go back to bed. It takes like 30 minutes to an hour for me to go to sleep once I lay down. How can I make myself go to sleep early?

There's a yoga trick where you lie down and relax every part of your body starting with your toes and ending with your facial muscles. You will generally fall asleep before you work all the way up your body. If that doesn't work, try your best to clear your mind of all thoughts.

Ok, so this is going to be weird, but my sister told me this trick when I was five, and it's helped ever since. So, when you're laying down ready to sleep think of your favorite color over and over again. I know, it sounds strange, but it totally works for me, and most of my friends that I've told this to. Hope I helped!

I have this problem too sometimes. The easiest thing to do is to prepare yourself for bed. Avoid eating or drinking anything but water in the last 30 minutes before you go to sleep. Start relaxing around this time too. You can listen to calm music and start dimming your lights/turning on a lamp to get a more calm feeling in the room. Start winding your brain down by not using electronics. You can read, lay down in your bed, things like that which can get you calm. Then, when you are ready to sleep, lie down, turn off all lights, music, and distractions, and start to clear your mind. Try to get rid of all the stress and worries.
Next, I'm going to explain how to do something that I learned in class one day that puts people to sleep really fast. When you are laying down with your mind clear, start focusing on your feet. Don't move them and think about them starting to feel heavy. Next, move all the way up your body up to your head, thinking about feeling like there is something holding you down, but in a comfortable way. This should help you feel sleepy. Also, the next time you go see your doctor, tell them you're having falling asleep and they can tell you if you should use any of those sleep aid things. I hope this helps and good luck :)
