Can’t sleep? Try these 6 (awful) suggestions

Can’t sleep? Try these 6 (awful) suggestions

1. Listen to relaxing music

Listening to music can be one of the most relaxing ways of de-stressing after a long and stressful day of exams or revision. You can get specially made “relaxing CD’s” to wind down to, featuring sounds of the ocean, birds or both as they are caught up in a tragic oil spill. If dying birds are not your thing, then below is a little suggestion to help you chill out. Whip out the candles and the incense, and if the song doesn’t relax you enough, then the video will surely do the trick.


2. Drink milk

Did you know that a 15L of warm milk 15 minutes before going to sleep soothes your nervous system? The calcium in the milk works directly on relaxing jagged nerves in 15 minutes. Follow their advice and you’ll be sleeping like a baby in no time.


3. Take a warm bath

Ahh, a relaxing bath will always do the trick when you just can’t seem to wind down after a long, hard day.  But if you’re anything like us, you maybe be wondering – what exactly is a bath? How can I partake in one of these “bathing sessions” you speak of? How do I prepare myself for the activity appropriately and effectively? Don’t panic! Help is here, as the lovely people at Howcast have produced a guide on how exactly to take a bath. Phew.


4. Count sheep

Everyone knows that the most logical and factual way of falling asleep quicker is to count sheep. Now unless you live in a field and its own herd of sheep, this is a little tricky to pull off. But if you live in a field then you really need to sort your fucking life out mate. Go watch this in the Apple store and just sleep there.


5. Talk to your roommates

If you’re tossing and turning, struggling to get to sleep, don’t just lie there and feel frustrated. Find something to occupy your mind. A nice chat with your room or flatmates will always help, especially if there’s something on your mind. That is if you have any and you’re like the guy in the field totally alone. In fact go and make friends with him he will be in the Apple store, chillin, you can do this.


7. Just go the fuck to sleep.

The man. "Enough is enough! I have had it with these m*****f*****g snakes on this m*****f*****g plane! Just go the fuck to sleep.”
