I'm officially trying the no phone thing before bed (and upon waking). It's actually very freeing! I always thought my pinning and whatnot helped to ease me into sleep, but it really just keeps my brain fluttering unproductively.

When even that doesn't work, I take a breathing exercise from yoga. I take deep breaths and count to make sure that my breaths in match my breaths out. This is kind of like counting sheep, but it also gets my breathing and heart rate under control. So not only am I mentally prepping for sleep, my body itself is forced to wind down a bit. It's kind of amazing how much is wrapped up simply with our breathing.

The sunrise alarm clocks look interesting! I had never heard of those.

Someday, when I can justify the cost, I'd like to try the Jawbone UP that gently vibrates to wake you. It supposedly keeps track of your sleep cycle and then decides when the best time to wake you would be. Sounds a little weird, but I'd love to give it a whirl.
