How do you sleep at night?

Back in high school I had this best friend.

We did everything together. I had half of our classes together, we would mingle during passing period. We saw each other all the time and were fully caught up on each others lives.

Despite that, we felt a need to have a notebook to pass back and forth: write notes, record our time apart, quote movies, and the like.

One time Camille wrote me a note in said book. At the end of her note she wrote,
"Tell me, how do you sleep at night?"

I thought that was a silly question, but answered anyways--thoroughly. I went on and on about relaxing my body, clearing my mind, all kind of nonsense. I even wrote that I never had a problem sleeping at all; I always fell right asleep--it never took me longer than 2 or 3 minutes.

I gave the notebook back, and the next time I saw Camille I was met with laughter. Turns out that wasn't a real question (of course it wasn't) it was was a quote from You've Got Mail.

This clip actually.

Turns out I'm not fortunate enough to sleep that easily anymore. 2-3 minutes to fall asleep? No, not anymore. I don't lie awake for hours on end, but it takes a while longer now. Last night, it took me 45 minutes to fall asleep.

Maybe I should get some of those UltraDorm pills they talked about on You've Got Mail...

worth a shot. Having a big drink of water before bed, helps me get tired. Another thing is drinking some herbal tea, that also helps me fall asleep.

I love your layout its so bright and happy :) (oh and Red, my fave :D)

How do you sleep said...

After tiring day, everyone would like to just sleep. But sometimes because of stress and tensions, we don't get good sleep. There are some plants and herbs which helps to reduce stress and tension like for example, mango, lemon and lavender helps to reduce stress, linalool helps to ease strain and anxiety.
