Then there's the music. I always (well, usually) have music in the background - if I don't, I struggle more with falling asleep.
I've got my go-to playlists, with music ranging from heavy on drums to the lilting sounds of a gibson hummingbird pro to - my latest discovery - the ukelele!
The ukelele has always held some appeal, but I never really paid attention to it till I discovered this playlist on Spotify.
Beddy bye time music new discovery. Bohemian rhapsody is so soothing... pic.twitter.com/xqRMZTJ2WN— Noemi (@noemiruth) January 11, 2016
I don't know 99% of the songs, but when I close my eyes, it's so easy to be transported to the beach, see myself in a hammock, having a nice cold drink on the side, reading a book.
If this doesn't work, sleeping pills. ;)
