Fall asleep fast with these relaxation techniques

Relaxation techniquesHaving trouble dropping off? Try these relaxation techniques from the University of Maryland Sleep Disorders Center. My favorite is progressive relaxation in which you tense and relax muscles from your toes to your head. Mmm. Makes me sleepy just thinking about it. There are also instructions for guided imagery, deep breathing, “quiet ears,” and the intriguing toe tensing. Apparently, tensing and releasing the toes releases tension in the whole body.
