When Counting Sheep Doesn’t Work

Erwin, McCane & Daly | Monday, September 29, 2014

Losing sleep over your Workers’ Comp case? Stop tossing and turning; leave it in our hands. We focus on Workers’ Compensation cases, and we’re ready to do the work for you.

In the meantime, here are 6 ways to get to sleep, naturally:

  1. Create a “sleep zone.” Your bedroom should be comfortable, warm, dark and pleasant. It should also be free of distractions. Yes, that means keeping the TV and computers outside of your sleeping sanctuary.
  2. Control the temperature. The optimal sleep temperature varies by person, but usually lies somewhere between 62 and 68 degrees. If the room is too hot, turn the heat down or get a fan. If you’re chilly, put another blanket on the bed or add a layer over your pj’s.
  3. Manage noise. Some people sleep best in total silence; others need ambient noise to fall asleep. If you need absolute quiet, use earplugs. If white noise works better for you, find an app that simulates rain or the sounds of the ocean.
  4. Read a boring book. If you’re in school, a textbook will suffice.
  5. Meditate on a calming word or phrase. Keep still and quiet to maximize your state of restfulness. This will help lower your heart rate and relax your muscles, making it easier for you to fall asleep.
  6. Do something else! If you’ve been lying there staring at the clock, get out of bed and find something else relaxing to do. Meditate. Stretch. Watch an old movie (not in your bedroom).
