Sleeping trick to a good nights rest


Do you sometimes have difficulty falling to sleep at night? Maybe you have a lot of things on your mind from work or family problems, drinking too much coffee or maybe just excited for the new day to arrive. Whatever the case may be, we all experience times in our life where we find it difficult to get a good nights sleep. I'm currently experiencing those times in my life because of a disability and on family leave from work. If anyone of you have been on family leave from work or even become unemployed, you know how stressful times can be trying to make ends meet. I've been having a really hard time getting a good nights sleep lately and I don't know what to do. Luckily my sweet wife has been so concerned for me that she did some searching online today and I guess she found some helpful tips from a blogger friend (Twerlyn) of hers having a similar problem. I'll try this tonight and hope it will work for me. Hey, If anything it sure beats taking some sleeping pills. Here's the trick my wife found and I quote:


I have known this trick since 2009 after reading a part of the book entitled “The Power of Now” . It is stated in the book that, if you want to sleep as soon as you closed you eyes, just close your eyes and make sure to hear your breath, the inhale and exhale so-to-speak. So, when you do that, you mind would stop thinking right away because you focus it on your breathing sound.

what a nice trick to sleep right away. thank you... i agree that if we hear our breathing sound, it does make our mind peaceful and take us slowly to the land of nod.
