4 activities to help you pass night without sleep happily

I have been having trouble sleeping. If the clock does not strike 3 or 4 in the morning, my eyes will not shut.

At first, I did not feel well; I was angry; and in the morning, I was tired, and I had no good mood.

But after I change my point of view towards this kind of problem, I'm able to live with this new habit, with a smile.

How can I survive within this new routine?

It is not easy, but it is not hard as well if you say that you can do it.

At the opening, I look from another angle. I think that being not sleep at night is good because:

I am able to do exercise

I have to say honestly that I am too lazy to workout. So, I take this chance to do exercise. 

However, I don't do heavy workouts. I just perform leg-up-to-the-wall poses. 

I choose this kind of exercise because it helps my waists, bones; moreover, it is late at night, I don't want to cause any disturbance to others.

I do it for fifteen minutes only.

I am able to recite Dharma

I am Buddhist.

Before, I was seriously sick, then I was told to recite Dharma. After I practiced it, my illness got better and better.

When I was quite good, I went to work, and I did not have time to pray to the Buddha.

Hence, I take the night, when I don't sleep, to recite praying to the illustrated one.

Usually, I spend almost one hour.

I am able to do meditation

While I was healing the disease in the Buddhist way, I performed meditation too. 

Then I rarely did it because I was busy with my job.

When I quit my career and become self-employed, and when I have sleeping trouble, I have a chance to practice again.

This activity is good for the people that have to go to work in the morning too. You know, it will help you to maintain energy and mood. Even though you don't sleep at night, or you sleep only one or two hours, still in the morning, you will be well like you have four to six hours sleeping.

No need to practice like a professional. Be simple.

You can choose between sitting and sleeping.

If you choose to sit, just sit cross leg, put right leg on left leg. Then set your left hand on the leg and put your right hand on your left hand. After, you close your eyes, and breathe in and out. Focus on your breath.. it is long, it is short. Perform this as long as you can.

If you choose to sleep, just sleep straight, and put your left palm on your stomach, then put your right palm on your left hand. After that, close your eyes, then perform breaths like mentioned above.

Sometimes, when I do meditation, I fall asleep.

I am able to listen to music

When I work, I listen to music. But I don't have time to concentrate on the meaning of the music/song.

Different from when I listen to it at night, I am able to enjoy the singer. I am able to get the meaning of the song, aim of the song composer, rhythm of the music etc.

I find it is so romantic to listen to the song at night. Use low volume. Um, very relaxed.

 

Just these few things, I can pass the long night happily.

Try any of the above activities. Or try it all.

I bet you will find night without sleep is not a problem anymore.
