Tips for Creative Minds to Get to Sleep
by Ruth Collis
Get Your Body Cooler to Sleep
Here is a color graph I made from pastels for a sleep therapist who was explaining to me that as you're active, you are much hotter, during the day (where I show the warm colors of the spectrum), & as you cool down at night (cool colors), the body sleeps.
*See the "Energy" painting Ruth did for a customer, illustrating the warmer colors of activity.
To get cooler...
Take cool shower or bath
Turn Fans on
Lay on cool waterbed with heater off
Do exercise in morning, not at night
Use the Counting & Breathing Technique
Turn on A/C for those certain hot summer nights
Some people have worn wet clothes to bed
