is a common question.
In my experience and schooling, our digestive systems are
weakest at that time. But if you can't sleep because of a
huge contract pending, or maybe an all-day seminar coming
up in the morning and the sound system hasn't as yet arrived,
or just about anything you're thinking of that won't allow
you to sleep ... You think, "Well, let me get something
to eat so I can fall asleep!" The energy it takes to
digest food will actually keep your body working most of the
night, and chances are you're going to wake up not feeling
what I found really works for me and all my clients who put
this into practice. I always have some room temperature distilled
water in my room. As we've talked about in some of the other
articles, I may make a little herbal tea. There are some teas
you can buy at your local health food store that doesn't require
hot water to make them.
always have my overnight bag packed 365 days a year, so I
just add a few extra things like those teas, etc. I'll sip
on that while I read one of my favorite books that's not business
related to help relax my mind.
may try this or that, but this has really worked for me, but
eating before going to bed isn't really a good idea. However,
if you are going to eat something anyway, try a banana or
2. And try not to eat the real juicy fruit, as you'll be up
all night going to the bathroom instead of sleeping.
else I've tried over the years that works best for me is if
there's something that is really bothering me and I can't
get it off my mind... I have a note pad beside my bed and
I write it down and repeat it to myself when the thought starts
to interfere with my falling asleep again. I say to myself,
"Wayne, it's on paper and there's nothing you can do
about it right now anyway. So ... GOOOOOOO TO SLEEEEEEP!"
All the while I'm drawing in 10 deep breaths ever so slowly
and within no time, I'm asleep
