      Best books for sleeping better?

      Hello! So I just have one question for you all. What do you think is the best book for tips on how to sleep better? I have been looking on amazon to find some good books since sleeping better also results in better chances at lucidity. On Amazon, I found a book called Sleep Smarter: 21 Proven Tips to Sleep Your Way To a Better Body, Better Health and Bigger Success as well as another book called Sleep Soundly Every Night, Feel Fantastic Every Day: A Doctor's Guide to Solving Your Sleep Problems. I'm trying to choose between these two books, but it's difficult. Any suggestions?
      Thanks!!

      The book that has helped me sleep better is A Systematic Course in the Ancient Tantric Techniques of Yoga and Kriya, especially the parts on yoga nidra. I really have had no serious issues in months (and I used to suffer from insomnia several times a week). You have to practice the exercises, of course.

      Thanks! I'll definitely check it out. It seems as though yoga and meditations are strong contenders for sleeping well. My main problem is that I toss and turn a lot during the night. So this causes frequent insomnia on nights (especially on Monday) after the weekends.

      The bible. I think I can not help you further. Sleep is a big problem for me as well.

      Find the biggest and most boring book you can find, and try to actually read it like you have to understand it. Go for 45-60min or so. And this will probably work it's magic as the knock out sleep you looking for. Good luck!:tropicalboxer:

      Haha well, personally I would probably kind of enjoyed it. But yeah that would probably be a good book aslong as you dont start to actually like what you read, because if that happen. Then you have to replace that book to a new even more boring book. I like the fact that you take on this challange, and it would be nice to hear your results from this as you progress towards better sleep. Good night!

      I have a little update. I did read a pretty long book with a lot of technical terms before going to bed yesterday. It actually worked! (although I have yet to try dictionary, but I will soon )

      Thats great! To bore your mind to sleep is often a easy way to fall asleep, but that can also be harder task than it sounds.
      It seems like you found the perfect book for yourself already though.^^

      Make it a chinese dictionary
      I wounder how that would influence the dreams..

      I think a hint of amazement, puzzles and something to spur the imagination (hence the chinese dictionary.. ) is much nicer to fall asleep with. The chinese dictionary is just a joke but looking at those symbols trying to figure out what they represent and appreciating their aesthetic beauty I think is a good way to fall asleep with a beautiful mind. thus beautiful dreams.

      It could possibly start with me attempting to speak to someone in Chinese. if that happens, I can use that as a cue to become lucid. Hey, a man can dream

      That's true. In reference to that thought, in Stephen Laberg's book ETWOLD, I think he mentions something similar to this (although I can't recall exactly what he said. But I think it had something to do with motor neurons...?). I did recognize that as a joke, but it's still a smart idea I don't have a Chinese dictionary anyways. But I do have an Arabic and German one though. I'll just use that as a replacer.
