I have a friend who has been avoiding his bed. He likes the late night world of silky silence so he can do his meditation and his other spiritual practices and yet also likes to get things done during the day time. I am wondering how to help my friend like sleep again as the lack of sleep seems to be not helping his body. What things do you do to help someone who does not like his bed and sleeping make going to bed enjoyable?

Thank goodness for good and boring books... Here's hoping that you go for the paperbacks as some of those hard bound books can sure make a racket when they fall out of your hands to the floor and can do a bit of damage too if they hit you. Thanks for commenting.

Yup they are paper backs and usually dont fall off they lay on my chest. Not boring just most times I need to sleep and I just fall to sleep with them.

I think meditation is one of the best way to remove any stress.. but i think if your friends make a timetable of day.. and also going on a particular times for sleeping.. then he would feel very very relax..

I fear my friend is not liking making timetables for the days... He is like me in that way... No particular times for sleeping or waking in this quarter either unless there is an external need for it... Thanks for commenting.
