** This thread is not finished yet, I'm using a smartphone and I accidently pressed the post thread button just to let you know ** Captain Rex reporting, Hello fapstronauts, it's time! It's time that I write another success story; but this time, it's about how I finally managed to overcome this year-long battle I had for a good night's rest one month prior. That's right, instead of complaining about being a victim desperate for help, I managed to face my fears head on and guess what? I won. I won the battle and now, I've reclaimed my beauty sleep once and for all and I feel much better about myself now than ever before. In fact, I don't even have to take pills every night before bed. Instead, I just pop a couple herbal gummies which I won't really need pretty soon. So how did I overcome insomnia you might ask? Well, how about you keep reading then. Don't skim over this because this is important information that I have learned from my journey and trust me, I have been there before. I had really poor sleeping habits and it was common for me back then to get around 3-4 hours of sleep so I know how painful that felt back then. So anyways, here are some important pieces of advice that should hopefully help you overcome your insomnia and allow you to sleep peacefully once again. I'll start with the most important ones: 1. Paradoxical intention: if you're having sleeping problems? Then chances are, you're probably tossing and turning constantly and in your mind, you're probably like this: "I can't sleep", or "can I please sleep?" If your belief system (which = BS) is like this, you won't be able to fall asleep. So instead, say this to yourself: "I don't wanna sleep", or "why must I sleep, sleep is for the weak!" Once you try this, chances are, your insomnia will probably start fading away or at least improve drastically because this was how I managed to overcome insomnia and sleep naturally and effortlessly. 2. Eat less before bed: have you ever felt so hungry that out of hunger, you just grab a slice of leftover pizza and next thing you know, you end up tossing and turning for hours regretting that you just had that slice. Well, I've had that experience before... it didn't feel good. So what's the solution? Try not to have heavy meals right before bed. Try to make sure that you've had enough throughout the day and if you end up feeling hungry, eat something light like cereal or toast or hell, maybe even a banana. A banana would be great 3. Practice meditation before bed: I know this doesn't always work but it's a great way to calm down before you start going to sleep. Just turn on some relaxing music on Youtube that is 452 hz and meditate for 10 minutes at a minimum. It may seem like a hassle but you don't want to be tossing and turning in bed, do you? Besides, meditation isn't just for holding back sexual urges. It works wonders when it comes to stress relief and calming down your mind so I definitely recommend it 100%. I just can't stress that enough so what are you waiting for? Do it!
