Do you have trouble sleeping at night? I certainly do. There are times when I toss and turn all night long, never being able to get comfortable. I look at the clock constantly. My mind tells me: “If I fall asleep right now, I will get six hours of sleep.” Then another hour passes, another look at the clock, and another inner voice telling me: “If I fall asleep right now, I will get five hours of sleep.”
And on and on….
For those of you who fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow, I envy you. To wake up in the morning feeling refreshed is something I don’t experience very often. And I’ve tried it all:
- Herbal teas to make you sleep – only I spend hour after hour running to the bathroom
- Natural sleeping pills – not even close to helping
- Sound machines to block out any noise – who are we kidding here
However, there is one thing that somewhat helps me. My friend, Debbie, suggested I listen to Metta Chanting. “Metta what?” I asked. So she sent me this link: https://binged.it/2zNrGBo. Now it doesn’t help me all the time, but on those occasions when it does, I am very grateful. There’s something peaceful about it; relaxing.
So I thought I would pass this along to my fellow insomniacs. If you’re desperate enough, you’ll try anything. Who knows? It just may work for you. Happy ZZZZZZZZZ’s.
