50 Day Meme Challenge - 2015

4. What do you do if you can't sleep at night? Do you count sheep?  Toss and Turn? Get up and do something productive?

I don't count sheep, but I do sometimes count backwards from 1000, can't say it works, but I try it. I usually toss and turn for a while before moving on to things that work better. I often use mantras.. Arabic or Hindu. While they don't often put me back to sleep at least they keep my mind from thinking about unpleasant things. Sometimes I sing or recite poetry. Basically nothing really works to put me back to sleep so next I read until I get tired of that. Basically nothing much works to put me back to sleep so at about 4 I get up and start doing something productive like knitting or washing dishes, trying to be quiet and not wake up my husband.

One of my friends listens to podcasts and says the voices lull her back to sleep, I'm going to try that one of these nights.

Om Nama Shivaya...
