31 Sleeping Lifehacks that Work:  June 3, 2015 – 10:35 am

Getting sleep tips.I wrote another sleeping lifehack post not long ago and it’s had over 78, 000 pageviews (reads) so far. That’s amazing to me because I created that blog post article on a spur of the moment idea one night when I realized that by having my head covered with my arms or hands I seemed to be more relaxed and I fell asleep even more quickly than I usually did.

To expand on that greatly, I’ve listed here another 30 ways to help you get to sleep. I take my sleep seriously. You should too. If you’re not getting enough sleep then you CAN change something and reach the point where sleep comes more quickly. You might be stressed out from life, but one or a combination of these lifehacks about sleeping should work for you!

1. Your bed is for two things: Sleep and sex. If you read in your bed, eat crackers in your bed, or program on your notebook computer in your bed, then your bed is no longer a special place. It needs to be special. It needs to trigger your brain for sleep. It needs to mean sleep so when you see it, and if you’re not feeling horny, you think, ‘sleep’.

Sleeping on the side, with hands on top of head helps get you to sleep.2. Make sure your room is cool enough to sleep. If it’s not cool enough, shoot a fan onto your legs, in your face, wherever you need it. Fans are cheap and efficient. My wife cannot sleep in the warm weather without a fan blowing DIRECTLY at her face – preferably on high speed from about 3 feet away. I can’t possibly sleep like that, so we sleep with my feet at her face and hers at my chest. Works for us most nights.

3. Music on low volume is OK, if the music either doesn’t have words – is entirely instrumental, or, consists of a sleepy girl’s voice like Sade. I can sleep to Sade’s “Love Deluxe” CD in about 4 minutes. If you don’t have it – get it and I think you’ll see what I mean.

Sleeping on side with hands on face weird helps you to sleep.4. Television on low volume works for some people. Not me. The problem is that you wake up at 3 a.m. with the loud static that makes you feel like you’re in a psycho Japanese horror-flick.

5. Fake meditation. Meditation books will tell you, “Don’t meditate while lying down.” There’s a good reason for that. You get too relaxed and your mind starts to get dizzy… unfocused and before you know it, you’ve slept yourself right through your meditation. Now, if you didn’t care about, sleeping would be a good thing. Try it in bed on your back and see what happens. Success!

    • Seconding (er, thirding notsnot). I have recently cut soda from my diet and greatly reduced caffeine (and other stimulants). In the past two months I have noticed that I function well and feel very good on far less and more irregular sleep than I was getting for the previous two or three years. I had a history of irregular sleep patterns previous to taking up with soda and copious amounts of other ceaffeinated beverages. Other than many allergies and a lack of regular strenuous exercise my doctors see me as very healthy. I pay close attention to the cues that my body gives me and I am d…

    • Try reading a good book to fall asleep. Well it works for me.
      Otherwise, exercise about 2 hours before you get to sleep. Not only is it amazing for your health and metabolism, but it'll wear your body out so you'll want sleep so badly there's no way you can push it to 5 AM. 8 PM is a good time to exercise.
