'i never tried meditation before and my mind thought 24-7 my mind kept me up at night for example i would go to bed and not fall asleep for another 2 hours meditation is the only thing that helped me let go...'
Yes, thanks. You can also try 'auto-suggestion' where you say to yourself, 'relax deeply, let go, now go to sleep!' - as if you are your own hypnotherapist, relaxing and putting you to sleep. Surprisingly, it works.
