Sleep Hack: Can’t Sleep? Here’s a Tip

Get Out of Bed

When you lie awake in bed, you send yourself the wrong message. “You’re basically training your body not to sleep in bed, but to lie there and not sleep,” Walia says. “And your mind can get conditioned to that.” If you’re unable to sleep for about a 15- or 20-minute stretch, leave the room, and try something relaxing and non-stimulating. Listen to music, read a book or take a bath.



    1. Thanks for the comment. A trick I occasionally use is to visualize a hike I like to take when I visit the Rocky Mountains. I slowly capture each step along the trail in my mind and I always fall to sleep before I get to the end of the trail. Have a great day. Ray
