Importance of sleep: I have noticed that if I do not get a good night's sleep, the discretion & control power of the mind reduces. It is perhaps well known that lack of sleep can cause irritability for anyone. What it means for a Fapstronaut is that there are more chances of anxiety/frustration over small things, and that, coupled with lesser discretion power of the mind, increases chances of a relapse. More than 50% of my last few relapses were when I did not get a good night's sleep. (I feel sleepy and irritable if I do not get 8 to 9 hours of good sleep - your requirement may of course wary). So my conjecture is that regular, sound sleep is very important for us - and we must be extra vigilant the next day if for some reason we do not have a good night's sleep. It might be a wise idea also to take few naps in the day, sacrifice some work if needed (non critical work of course) - but avoid getting irritable / anxious at all cost - as it can increase chances of a relapse. An effective remedy for getting good sleep: I used to suffer from serious insomnia / irregular sleep for many years. On the one hand - the insomnia would occur when I was tensed / depressed. But to make things complicated, it would also occur when things & my routine were going perfectly well for days. Basically, if I would work out a good schedule for few days, I would get on a "mental" high state, and excessive energy / excitement would also bring insomnia. Since last few months however, I have found a simple, wonder remedy for insomnia (worked for me - results might vary!). I started mixing one teaspoon of turmeric powder with my bowl of milk in the morning, and taking one glass of warm/hot milk with a teaspoon of turmeric powder before going to bed. I started doing it for help in my cough/cold - but to my wonderful surprise - I started getting sound sleep within few days of this. (My professor who is also a Godfather like figure had earlier recommended turmeric to me, but I had regular intake only recently because of a persistent cold)! I experimented with other control parameters (like time of sleeping, place of sleep etc.) to verify that it was indeed due to the turmeric milk and so far I strongly feel there is a good correlation. Despite different situations, some even stressful ones, I have not had a single day of insomnia in the last 2 months (first time in 10-15 years) since I started taking milk with turmeric powder regularly. (There were couple of nights where I did have trouble getting sleep, but I read some spiritual books and had a sound sleep.) Just thought of sharing this note on sleep, in case it helps someone!
