Re: Daughter has trouble falling asleep
I had the same problem when I was her age. I was in a very demanding, new school and my brain was always on.
A sleeping mask and a good audio book on tape did me wonders. I used to listen to the BBC Sherlock Holmes with Clive Merrison. I've always loved Holmes.
I still use the sleeping mask regularly, but now I do adult colouring for an hour before bed, especially when I know I'm working a ton. I also crochet and make jewellery to de-stress.
The more I work, the harder it is to turn my brain off, unless I find ways to soothe it.
