For many people, it can be difficult to fall asleep peacefully at night. It can affect your energy and therefore your life.
If you have trouble sleeping, it might be because your mind is too agitated. The “monkey mind” (as the Buddhists call it) can be thinking in all directions. So annoying you terribly at a time of the day when only one thing counts: to sleep well.
Thus you just need to calm down this “monkey mind” so you can fall asleep and sleep more peacefully. Try these steps below and feel free to tell me if they helped you join Morpheus’s arms.

1. No more screen
I know it can be really hard for some. Unfortunately, it can often prove to be the thing that can cause bad sleeps. Be sure to avoid any contact with the screens at least half an hour before bedtime. Prefer to read a magazine or a book instead. However, avoid reading things that will make you think too much. This will make your mind less agitated and in a perfect state ready to chill.
2. The little tea afterward
You no longer have a screen to watch. My god, what to do?
So now, it’s the time to make a little herbal tea that will help you soothe you to sleep well afterward. I recommend chamomile or verbena that can have very good virtues.
3. Write what goes through your head
If you are someone like me who thinks often. Do not hesitate to write what goes through your head. This will help remove what you have in your powerful brain.
For example, write what you will do tomorrow to make the success of your day. Write down your goals/to-do list, or take advantage to reflect on your day that just happened by putting the right things that happened to you. It will also help you to be more positive.
4. Lie back and relax
Finally it’s time to go to bed after all of these.
The last step is the best. Lie down peacefully and relax. If you still can’t relax, do not hesitate to put music on your phone, but be careful that it’s in airplane mode. That will allow you to do not be disturbed by the notifcations and wake up your mind again.
If you need internet to put the music on, put your phone on silent and do not dwell on your notifications. Know that even putting your phone in vibrator can alert your mind and thus make you think again.
Do not worry. The people who contact you can wait until tomorrow that you answer them. In addition you can tell them that you have slept well and if they too have trouble doing this you can explain how you did.
Find here one of the many music you can find on youtube to relax your mind. Feel free to download it so you do not need the internet and therefore not to be disturbed.
So now you got it. To find a peaceful sleep, you just have to empty your head and relax. I personally think that if many people have trouble sleeping, the phone is not for nothing. Stay away from this one. Put your notes on the paper if the mind is restless and sleep well.
