8 More Weird Tips to Help You Fall Asleep Faster

If cherry juice and curling your toes didn't help you fall asleep right away, as recommended in my previous post of 8 Weird Tips to Help You Fall Asleep, then here are some more unconventional tips and tricks you can try to help you start nodding away into dreamland ASAP.

Though snacking before bedtime is generally frowned upon, you can try eating a spoonful of raw, organic honey or two tablespoons of raw almond butter with a celery stick before hitting the sack. You could also try small portions of tryptophan-containing foods, like chocolate and oatmeal (see 20 Snacks That Just Might Make You Sleepy).

Not hungry? Breathe in and out through your left nostril or mentally trick yourself into thinking that you're going to stay awake for as long as possible.
