I need a cool bed.
When making a comfortable bed, people often overlook temperature. Do you know what temperature can put you in sleep faster? Many people adjust the body temperature with a warm or a cool bath before sleep. You can also make your bed warmer or cooler. Sit on the bed to read a book or watch TV for a while, heat gathers. If you want the other way round, add a bamboo mat and wipe it with a cold damp cloth before lying down. Place a cold pack at the forehead to expel any heat from the head.
I need a free posture.
Free feel to have hands up and surrender yourself to a good sleep. Sleep as freely as you can. You are not in a live show. Nobody will make fun of you. The worst case is just appearing in the America’s Funniest Home Videos and be admired by the audience. Have you chosen your best killing posture and ready to let others envy you?
Oh! Quiet, please.
Late at night, many activities come to a halt. Silence is supposed to dominate, but always not fully. There are still some sounds to be heard. It may come from the nature such as the trees are blowing in the wind. Or it is an internal one – the ticking of a clock for example. Some people are very sensitive to these sounds. Trust nobody will roar like the lion at midnight, but one’s body may protest silently by refusing to fall asleep and therefore, people have to try eliminating sounds. Some seek help by wearing earplug. Others may change the mechanism or the bed location to shut off the noise.
Do you hear me? I say: “No”
Many people are suffering from great stress that is the major reason why they have insomnia. Humans should try to learn from animals and be stress free as much as possible.

Let’s do some exercise.
