If you've achieved enlightenment, chances are you're a sound sleeper. So who better to offer sleep tips that Buddha? Idea number one: Don't close your eyes. It's the same principle that made you bleary-eyed in your high school English class. By tiring your eyes naturally - say, by reading until your eyelids droop - you fall asleep more peacefully, says Joseph Emet, author of Buddha's Book of Sleep. Still can't sleep? Concentrate on your breathing to shut out other thoughts, or try a gratitude exercise: Count your blessings in addition to counting sheep.
