Just Go To Sleep
And Forget About It

Insomnia Tip #35

Backwards Counting / Mental Computer

"Even though I am only a kid, I still have problems falling asleep sometimes. Usually, all I have to do is count backwards from 1,000, taking a deep breath in between each number, as far as it takes to get to sleep."

Another mental exercise to use is to mentally 'type' in your worries onto a mental computer, such as 'fear', 'stress', and 'anxiety'. Then hit the delete key until the entire "screen" is blank."

I know many adults often say, 'I wish I was as carefree as a kid,' but it really isn't that easy to be a kid! Thank you so much for the suggestions!" - Anonymous
