What thoughts make you go to sleep?

My husband says he thinks about what he's going to do tomorrow and that allows his mind to rest and he goes to sleep. What do you think about to make yourself go to sleep? Is there a specific routine in your mind you play out? This is going to sound strange but I make a movie in my head. I think up a concept, select actors, find a location and film the movie. Yeah I know I'm weird you don't have to tell me. What about you?

I like your movie idea that sounds much more interesting then mine. I try to get into bed at the same time everynight. Then what I do is do a check off list in my head once I have everything checked off I am able to relax and go to sleep. Pretty simple huh!

Thought I find is the antithisis of sleep for me. If I start thinking about anything I will usually find myself still thinking many hours later.

I also think like your husband about what to do the next coming day and making future plans. Its really intresting to know that you select actors and make a movie in your thoughts.

Usually, I just tell myself over and over "Sleep, Sleep, Sleep, ect." I will continue doing this until I get so tired, I just pass out.
