    What are the best ways of falling asleep quickly?

    I used to have this problem. As a teenager, I would stay up until 4 in the morning playing World of Warcraft, crawl into bed, and still not be able to fall asleep. It was terrible.

    A bunch of doctors suggested medication and/or sleeping pills. I was never one for that sort of "answer," so I chose insomnia instead.

    It wasn't until a few years ago that I started meditating, and I was finally able to fall asleep. Now, I lie down and am asleep within 30 seconds, and I don't wake up until my alarm goes off.

    This is something that takes practice, but too many people mistake their busy thoughts as "themselves," and either accept insomnia or resort to sleeping pills—neither of which are very desirable, in my opinion. We all need sleep!

    To meditate, simply sit in a comfortable, upright position (I usually sit on the floor with my back against a wall. Comfortable enough, but not so comfortable as a chair that I'll fall asleep). Close your eyes, place your hands on your knees (palms up if you want to feel more buddha, palms down if you're still that "this shit doesn't work" phase), and breathe deeply. You will hear your thoughts very loudly. Don't tell them to shut up—this will only make them louder. Instead, just listen. Breathe and listen. Stay there for at least five minutes. Shoot for ten. Fifteen and you get a gold star.

    Do this every day for six months and let me know what happens. My guess: sleep.

    Sleeping disorder and insomnia are rather serious health issues, I wouldn't recommend to turn to self treatment in this case. My therapist prescribed me cbd vape in similar situation, I coped with the problem due to oil cartridge vaporizer .
