A nice fluffy comforter and pillows, a fan or just the air on (although not necessary), and darkness. The most important thing however is my partner, Chris. Nothing relaxes me more than falling asleep in his arms or at the very least touching him with some part of my body, even just a toe. He's a great furnace and it warms me through and through. But often we are apart because of work and on those nights I find it hard to fall asleep. On those nights I turn to my other romance; Bob Ross. I love art and creativity and since I was a girl Bob Ross has inspired me and made me feel safe and inspired. So when ever I want to be calmed and/or inspired to create I turn on some of his painting shows. For inspiration I could watch him all day, but for falling asleep I can't even get through one half hour episode. His voice is so soothing and his positivity is so comforting, that I fall almost instantly to sleep. Another trick is reading... I used to read constantly as a teenager into the wee hours of the morning, I was addicted. But as an adult if i try to pick up and book and read in bed, I fall instantly asleep. Im also guaranteed to nod off on almost every car ride. Those two activities bring out my inner narcoleptic.
