What helps you sleep?
If you find that random thoughts going round in your head keep you from relaxing and entering the land of nod, you can write them down, leave them on the bedside table and deal with them in the morning. However, if you find that you either still cannot stop worrying or that you have a fear of something which is keeping you from sleep, you need to replace your irrational fear with more productive thoughts. This is a process which should be done in the daytime and not left until you are trying to get to sleep. Try this extract from our Developing Personal Resilience course ‘Challenging Your Thinking‘.
We also have an article entitled ‘How to Sleep Better‘ which looks into the reasons why you may be having trouble sleeping and also has some useful tips on how to get to sleep and sleep well.
