10 Things To Do When You Can’t Sleep At Night

  • Listen to relaxing music. Similar to watching relaxation videos, listening to soft music can be very calming and help lull you back to sleep. Try looking for playlists on Spotify of listening to new age artists, like Enya.
  • Get something to drink. Simple though it may seem, enjoying a cool glass of water or a warm cup of chamomile tea might be all you need.
  • Turn to aromatherapy. Investing in a soothing pillow or room spray is not only a nice treat for your nose, but it can also help your mind and body relax enough to fall asleep.
  • Practice a before-bed routine. Having a set routine that you do every night before bed will help your body know that it’s time to wind down and sleep.
  • Jot down your thoughts. Sometimes the reason you can seem to stay asleep is because you’ve just got too many thoughts floating around in your head. Keep a notepad or journal next to your bed for nights such as these – whenever you’re mind is filled with multiple to-do’s and important things to remember, just jot them all down to be dealt with the following day.
  • Slow your breathing, and count some sheep. Two things that usually work for me are to slow my breathing down (breathe in for a count of 4, hold for 5, breathe out for 6) and count sheep. I once read an article that said it’s more effective to count the sheep walking in a circle rather than jumping a fence, so try that the next time you’re looking to catch some z’s.
  • Do you ever have nights when you just cannot sleep?
