    I’ve recently discovered that I fall asleep much easier if I’m listening to some sort of noise. I like the Calm app because you can download different sound effects and put them on a timer. I’ll listen to ocean waves while I’m falling asleep! It works wonders.

    Thanks for this article! :) I’m going to try the tip on a sound machine as I also have neighbours that live above me and are quite noisy.

    Thanks for writing about this and removing a little of the taboo from the conversation of wanting more sleep. I feel like coffee and sleep deprivation are so chic these days. I definitely used to have a hard time putting myself to bed and a lot of these tips really worked out. I did some work with my diet too, to regulate my blood sugar and help me feel more calm before bed.

    You’re right about the diet/sugar and the alcohol. Putting your body through an unnatural cycle of energy can make it hard to go to sleep.

    Thanks for sharing such great tips. I am having anxiety for a very long time, though it’s not that bad. So I am now going to try to create a routine at night, instead of just falling asleep with my iPad.

    I experienced sleep anxiety almost a year ago and went nights without 0 sleep. It was a really tough season in my life and I didn’t feel safe. People don’t understand if they’ve never experience it. But I get you girl. I’d literally be SO anxious all day wondering if I’d fall asleep at night which would cause me to then not fall asleep. I legit would be afraid to go to sleep or even climb in my bed. It’s gotten way better over the past few months but I’ve noticed when I spend less time on social media before bed, I sleep muchhhh better!!!! I try very hard to give myself 1-2 hours of no screen time before bed. The journal part is so true!!! Writing out ideas, worries, to-do is so helpful!!!

    Such a nice post! It’s been about a month now, and to my great surprise I’ve persisted with the early starts. I have to admit that I have skipped a couple of Sunday mornings, and that 5am has nudged back to 5.30am, but the concept of early to bed early to rise is really working well for me. In many post all the expert gives such amazing techniques steps to become an early riser like your post is also an inspiration. Sometimes I feel blessed to use internet that I can sleep better also wake up early because of many research and now its becoming my habit. Few day ago I read Successful People Give Up Habits to Increase Their Productivity and one of the habit was They don’t work in their comfort zone. But I think its not the right thing. If I do better and better in my comfort zone then I can be more Productive person. But its true proper sleep is must be needed which I follow to do.

    I feel much more in control of the day and more productive overall – also the afternoon fatigue has calmed down as I’ve got used to the new rhythm. Besides I do regularly research about better sleep way. .Great post to read For now I’ve no plans to revert back to being a night owl, but I suspect cold winter mornings might provide a true test. Wonder if any other challenge night owls have become early birds? By the wayThanks for sharing lovely post keep it up.

    Great tips! I especially like the “brain dump”. This is something a lot of other sources don’t advertise and I think it is very important. Thanks for sharing!
