I used to have a few nights a week that I could not fall asleep as quickly as I would have wanted. I would be up until 2 or 3 am, just lying in bed. I leaned that if I counted backwards from 99 to zero, it would help me fall asleep. I added dream exploration to my lifestyle and that prompted me to seek out better sleep quality so I can recall my dreams. As a result I found the counting method, and also use melatonin pills for when counting does not work. We also darkened our bedroom. I learned that even a little bit of light can cause the body to produce wakefulness promoting chemicals in the body. So we installed blackout curtains in our two windows. Now I can recall my dreams and most nights I sleep like a baby..

I go three to four nights a week with no sleep. It used to be just a couple nights a week, but it’s getting worse. I have anxiety bad and this doesn't help. .
