“It's All In The Mind, Y’know”
                        – John Lennon

To sleep, perchance to dream. Why is it that if we are too rev’ved up, too wired, we simply cannot fall asleep? And worse, the thought, “I won't get enough sleep” begins to initiate a bad feedback loop of increased anxiety.

Don't even worry about the length of your sleep – one good 90 minute ultra deep sleep can refresh you for a day. And when you learn a sleep technique that works for you, you'll be able to take a power nap on demand.

Why did I write this booklet? I’ve suffered from work and play induced insomnia my whole life, so I’ve had a lot of experience with ways of falling asleep. My work, software engineering, is very mental with long work hours too close to sleeping. As a result, my mind was humming with code, ideas, and just plain noise when it was time to sleep. Collected here are the techniques that work well for me – and some nights I need to use 2 or 3 of them – so please, mix and match.

Mind controls the body,
breath controls the mind.

is the first thing you need to know. We'll be using words and breath in different combinations. The words are your words. For some of us, the ancient call of Sanskrit and toning vibration of ॐ (OM) works well because it’s so pure and simple.

One of these tried and true techniques, or your own variation, will be sure to help you fall asleep quickly and naturally.
