Just search online for free audio books. Listen to the first few minutes of the ones that interest you to be sure the speaker’s voice is pleasant and enjoyable to listen to.
Don’t worry if you fall asleep soon after the book begins. The sound will help lull you to sleep, and you can listen to it as many times as you wish. Remember that you are listening for the purpose of sleeping, so it really doesn’t matter!
Practice Some Deep Breathing And Stretching
Whether you are getting ready for bed or wake up unexpectedly, taking a few moments to breathe deeply and do some gentle stretches can calm your body and help you relax into sleep. You can practice your stretches and breathing sitting up or lying down. If you practice your deep breathing and stretching in bed, you will not need to move around to get situated.
Go Gently Into The Night
As bedtime approaches each night, be sure to begin dimming your lights and quieting the activity in your home. End your evening with a warm bath and/or a cup of chamomile tea. Both of these old fashioned remedies will help you enjoy natural sleep.
