Books And Bedtime!

So...what I think is helping me fall back to sleep at night is reading complicated mysteries. And...if they are based in little towns outside of London...I fall asleep even faster! I never realized how complicated it is to actually fall asleep. I swear I am awake and sleepless but Den insists that I have been asleep with the TV on! I guess I can't really doubt him! But I do think that staying in bed when I wake up helps...so hopefully I am sleeping more than I think I am. If I wake up I just grab my Kindle and read my complicated mystery. It works for me now.

 

Anyway...the books...complicated mysteries...they are all that I want to read right now...whether they are in England or not.

Here are some new favorites!

I just read an article about how to fall asleep and stay asleep...camomile tea loaded with honey is supposed to put you to sleep like a baby! Cherry Juice is supposed to work, too, and just regular milk. I will probably try them all.
Nighty Night!

  2. I think I probably sleep more than it feels like too, but it's so frustrating. I hate to drink too much before I go to bed because then I have to get up at night.

  4. Let us know if any of the sleep remedies work. I think the complicated mysteries would work for me as well, ha.

  5. Warm milk and graham crackers. That works well also.

  6. I'm glad you've found a method that helps, Patty, and that has you reading at the same time. I read about certain drink mixtures but I always have to get up and pee if I drink right before bed so that doesn't work for me unfortunately. I am trying to get into bed about an hour and a half before 8:30 so I can relax my brain with some reading.
