Considering that I’ve been having so much trouble sleeping lately I’ve tried to come up with some ideas that will help me sleep better.
Now, unlike a lot of people that have trouble sleeping I also have a chronic disease that causes me pain – especially in the evenings. It’s Crohn’s disease and it seems once I have a couple of meals in me my pain only increases – hence the more pain at night thing.
I can’t do anything about eating as I’ve got to eat if I want to live, but I can try to manage my pain better.
We have a dog so taking her out for long walks at least once a day if not twice a day should help me get some exercise and that should help tire me out.
I have a lot of websites and I tend to work on them pretty much all the time. I think that from now on I should turn the computer off by midnight if not earlier. That will give my mind some time to settle down.
Now one cool thing that I could get that might help me sleep would be a massage chair. Eh? Wouldn’t that be great? I could sit in it and have a massage shortly before bedtime and maybe, just maybe I’d get a better sleep.
Do you have any other ideas that might help me get some sleep?
