Poor sleep can wreak havoc on your waking life, leaving you grumpy and unwell. But when you’re staring at the ceiling, counting sheep, worried that sleep may never come . . . what can you do? Well, Trick Yourself to Sleep—with 222 simple strategies and creative tips, all scientifically backed:
  • Cover up clocks (stop stressing over every restless minute)

  • Stick out your tongue (this releases tension in the jaw)
  • Try a weighted blanket (it’s like giving your nervous system a hug)
