  eat turkey for dinner
drink warm milk
don’t think about how repulsive “warm milk” is
just drink it already
breathe deeply
do yoga
count sheep
count elephants
don’t think of elephants
don’t think of soup
don’t think of paper clips
count the things that flew out of Pandora’s box
count backwards from X
count backwards from X + 100
call InsomniaCookies they’re open until 3:00 am
open the window
close the window
get up after 20 minutes and wait another 20 minutes then go back to bed, rinse and repeat
don’t think about why you can’t sleep
