    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.
