Why is it so hard to fall asleep and sleep on your back?

Hello

I really want to sleep on my back because of all the benefits. When i try to do it in bed i just lie there. Its great for relaxing but i cant fall asleep or sleep that way. Just seems impossible. I also get an urge to move to one side after a long while

 

Any tips, thoughts etc?

i dont know. It feels ok, but i just cant fall asleep. Have no clue why, dont get into that mode. Ive tried many times, i just dont get tired enough

I haven't been able to fall asleep on my stomach for a long time. What i do is just focus on my breath when i am laying down and try not to think, just focus on the air passing in and out of one of your nostrils. I do the same thing when I meditate and since i began doing that almost 2 years ago I haven't had problems falling asleep most days its rare that I can't fall asleep within 10-20 minutes after laying down.

no tips. just saying i can relate.  i think its that i feel too vulnerable on my back. not that anything bad has every happened to me while sleeping, but i feel very exposed and vulnerable. maybe it goes back to earlier times when we had to still be vigilant at night to protect ourselves from predators.

Hehe thanx. I will find it, i read it in the book Quantum Eating

Also its mentioned that sleeping on a hard surface is also the most beneficial you can do. Because it stretch out your back etc etc etc

I don't see/know the benefits of sleeping on your back:D

I never slept on my back until I had motorcycle accident and I had to sleep on my back for 2 years.

Tried different beds and surfaces, but my back always hurts when I wake up:)

Best tip I can give is the same Tyrell gave. Focus on your breath;)

Why You Should Be an Early Riser..

My favorite part of the day is the early morning. I crave the silence and the chance to focus on my own thoughts and body. I'm usually up every day by 4:20AM...
