1. Don't even try to fall asleep if you've slept within three hours, unless you slept for only a little while and you feel like sleeping now. Wait until you feel like you could sleep. 2. Find a place where you can lie down. It is best if this place is dark and doesn't have many people in it. 3. Lie down on your back. Don't cross your legs at all. Rest your arms at your sides. From this position you can switch to a position that's good for you. Most people start off sleeping in the same position everytime. If you know what your position is, get into that position. If you don't really know what your position is, try a couple different ones until you get it right. When you hit the right position you will know it. 4. Shut you eyes. Don't shut them really tight. Just kind of let them fall shut. 5. When you're relaxed enough you can start breathing through your mouth. Try to forget about your nose. 6. Don't think about anything now. Or think about one thing, but not too much, and make sure it's a simple thing to think about. Like a glass cube. 7. You won't be aware of the moment when you fall asleep. One second you will be awake and the next second you will be waking up. Don't panic. This is normal. 8. Waking up is best done slowly. It's kind of similar to the falling asleep process but it's all in reverse. 9. The corners and little holes in your eyes will be caked with a crusty yellowish substance this can be removed with your fingers. Gently wipe it away. Be careful, it can be sharp and your eyes are sensitive. 10. Open your eyes and let them adjust. 11. Get yourself to a sitting position. 12. Get your feet under you and stand up. Or, if you have been sleeping in a bed, put your feet on the floor and sit on the edge of the bed, then, stand up.
