Sleep Better Now! Stress Management Tip to Beat Insomnia
by L. John Mason
very relaxing. Especially useful if you have difficulty getting to sleep or you awaken
during the night.

50 to 1 Countdown

As the name implies you count backward from 50 down to 1. The difference is that
you count "1,2,3" between every number. So the counting goes: 50, 1,2,3, 49,
1,2,3, 48, 1,2,3, 47, 1,2,3, 46, 1,2,3,...... etc.

Your mind will be busy with these numbers and then get bored with the counting so
that it will go to sleep (or back to sleep.) With an even pace this takes about 3
minutes to get down to 1, if you get that far. Some people can get to 1, but the
second time through this counting they usually drift off.

This breathing/counting technique can be combined with a few simple changes that
will compliment to effectiveness of this exercise.
1. Reduce, or better still, eliminate caffeine, even that one cup in the mourning. Many
people are sensitive to caffeine, even a small amount. De-caf is an alternative.

2. Regular exercise will help, but not just before bedtime. Give it at least an hour,
better 2, before bed.

3. Do not eat a big meal with 2 hours of bedtime, because this can get in the way of
good sleep.

4. If all else fails, consider getting, and using, a guided relaxation on CD to help you to
relax and to fall asleep. You will also benefit from a better quality of sleep.

Try this. It can really work well for you.

Please take good care of yourself.
