To use my technique to learn how to sleep well, youmust be fully committed to it and not tryto pick holes in it whileparticipating.
To start lay in bed, have yourthoughts and imagine them in agreen bubble inside your head, nowimagine the bubble floating to the top ofyour scalp so you could grabit with your hand, place your hand and imagineyourself grasping thethoughts in your hand, lastly I want you to place themslowly on thefloor next to you and let your hands go.
This is a system I usealmostevery night and can even be applied to get that annoying song out ofyour head.
