Cary, one of the contractors at work, gave me a wonderful idea for getting better rest.
Rather than having a task to do of going to sleep: "::Aarrgh, it’s 11:30, I need to get to sleep now, I’ve got to be up in 7 hours"::.
You just go to bed for a rest, and let it happen. If you sleep, you sleep, if you just shut your eyes and rest, so be it.
Think about it, if you have a Saturday afternoon rest, you rarely have trouble getting to sleep. Why? No time line. (and possibly a big roast lunch…)
I’ll give it a try over the next few weeks.
