your troubles.
You cannot think of two different things at the same time. Thus, by concentrating on the mere thought of sleep, you can drive your

If I had your troubles and were as proud of them as you areif I took them to bed with me as a child takes her dolls and hugged them to me and wouldn't let them go-they'd keep me awake too. In fact, I used to do that very thing. I was writing and producing musical shows on Broadway, and anybody in that business will tell you there are tons of worries in it. They kept me awake night after night. And then I discovered that when I thought only of going to sleep I felt sleepy.
I used also a second and equally important technique. This is very simple too, though it took me a long while to become proficient. It is the technique of relaxing progressively. My psychologist friend Lucius Humphrey told mc and I can tell you-all you need to know in a couple of minutes. The rest is practice. Don't try it a few times and then give it up. With diligent practice you will become able to put yourself to sleep within five minutes whenever you wish.
Tonight when you go to bed make yourself as comfortable as you can. Take any position you like-the one in which you feel most completely relaxed. Close your eyes.
Now you are ready to start concentrating on the one thought of relaxation, progressing from one part of your anatomy to another. Think first of the muscles of your scalp, the top of your head. Relax
