You Can Sleep

those muscles. Now concentrate on the muscles of your forehead. Feel the muscles sag. Now your eyelids. Relax them. They are so heavy you can't lift them. Now the muscles of your face. Let the muscles go. Your jaws-let them sag. Note especially your neck. Move your head around until your neck is so relaxed your head feels like a dead weight. Drop it-let it roll until it comes to a stop of itself. Go right down your back. Feel the muscles let go.
Let your mind follow down each arm, relaxing the shoulders, the elbows, wrists, each finger. Now consider the muscles of your chest. Relax them. Then your stomach. Let everything sag. Heavy. Heavy.
Feel the heaviness of your hips-pushing against the bed. Now relax the muscles of each thigh, foot, toe. Slowly. Slowly. .., You're asleep!
Maybe not the first time you do it. But if you are awake you won't be wide awake. And one more round trip from head to toe should put you under. Later, when you have practiced this technique faithfully night after night, you will never finish the whole route-you will be asleep long before that. Confidentially, I haven't got past my arms for years.
Don't give any thought to whether you forgot some part of the body. The magic lies not in any special order but in the fact that while you are consciously thinking of relaxing each part of your body you are not thinking about your troubles.
It works. I was once as proud an insomniac as you would ever meet. Now I can always put myself to sleep in a couple of minutes. You can do it too if you really want to.
