    Default ENFP/NF's what kind of activities help you relax?

    What kind of activities help you sleep at night too (and I don't mean chemical stuff)?

    I wish I knew. Meditation helps a bit.

    Sleep comes easily if I've had a busy day, but for now I have to sit and take notes and study. Ken Burns helps too, he makes the world feel beautiful and fuzzy = ).

    I read something fun and usually watch a couple scenes from a film I know well - I know the scenes so I can just listen to the dialogue and slowly drift off...

    Running in the morning. I've worked my way up to 2.75 miles in 22 minutes. I'm still seeing improvement every week; the main thing is that I need to do it more often.

    Lol- nice- I don't think i own any legos anymore though. Do you think enfps have a harder time relaxing than most other types because of all the stimulus they take in?

    Mmm..I tend to just stay up wayyyy late till I fall asleep on my keyboard..not the best solution.

    I'd say the best way (but not the most fun), is to stay away from people, make sure you've done a work-out during the day and even in the evening if you can, and cozy up with a hot drink while reading something, or watching some tv. Anything involving interaction and people will get you hyper again, so don't even go there. A book is nice coz you can skip that 'God, I'm bored and now I have to go sleep'-stage by staying in that nice fantasy world while you get ready for bed and fall asleep.


    If you feel really wired while in bed, seeing the minutes tick by, a relaxation meditation usually works as well. It's where you use a meditation to check each muscle in your body and you consciously release that muscle. At the end you kinda feel like you're sinking into your matras. Kinda the grown-up version of counting sheep, I'd say.

    start drinking early

    or

    get a lot of exercise / dont nap / dont sleep much the night before

    more seriously: stick to a schedule of sorts for the evening. Do not get dragged into unplanned wild stuff if you need to sleep, instead stick to your boring plan <- wild stuffs are important.

    as far as relaxation: find someone to run their fingernails across your scalp, rest your bare feet on some warm concrete/rock, sit down and write out your thoughts (dont make a to-do list)

    Reading or listening to a novel on my iPod. If I have something to keep my brain busy it is more willing to STFU and let me sleep.

    I also take a very small dose of melatonin supplement.

    Which I now read is illegal in Germany and I think I sent some with my daughters when they visited family stationed there a few years ago. Oops!
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
