I thought I'd change that today by sharing a couple of articles I recently come across over at AnnArbor.com.
The first article suggests letting your eyes drop out of focus before trying to fall asleep.
The second article suggests focussing your attention on the back of your head.
Apparently, both of these meditation techniques have helped insomnia sufferers drift off to sleep. They work by taking your mind out of its active state and moving it into the theta wave state which precedes sleep.
Scientific explanations aside, I'd always recommend giving meditation a try if you're suffering from insomnia.
