a simple trick to help you feel tired and relaxed, it works wonders.
Look up just a small amount. to find this point, look up till it hurts and then come back down a little so it doesnt hurt but you are not looking directly forwards, bout 45 degrees or a little less.
looking up like this causes your brain to surge with alpha waves, relaxing waves much like a gentle trance or daay dream, it will help clear your mind and make you sleepy too.
Give it a go.
