my ideal would be to be able to fall asleep if im not even tired for a power nap. but im a bit of an insomniac so thats a bit far off... ive figured out that i need to first relax my body (maybe with relaxation response) and clear my mind and then i need to suggest to myself that i feel sleepy (maybe some kind of self suggestion thing? biofeedback?). once asleep, i need to figure out how to sleep deeply. i have a problem with waking up periodically throughout the night. i think its because im skinny and i have a firm matress for back support and i constantly need to shift position. also when i wake up, more often than not the blood circulation is cut off to one or both of my arms (even if i was on my back). another thing i need to solve before i start sleeping through the entire night...
any tips in any of these areas?
