I try to think about nothing. Some people count sheep. Do you have a secret that works?

If there's a small amount of noise, I usually focus on it so that I can't sleep. Other people can just ignore it.

if noise is the issue, get a white noise machine +/- some comfortable ear plugs

Noise is not always the problem. Sometimes I can't sleep even if there's no noise, or no fear of noise.

My next door neighbors are annoying and they go to sleep around 1 AM. If they are still awake, I don't even try to sleep. I stay awake until I see their lights have gone off and/or I hear them using the bathroom for the last time.

I do use a white noise machine and earplugs. They help a lot, except for truck beeping which is just too loud, but it's only like 830 in the morning. Sometimes I love the white noise but other times it's annoying and harsh, even though the noise is the same.

Happy things like vacation and the past and sciencie stuff. But, if I get going on bills or work, it takes me HOURS to fall asleep.
