Maybe he's being ironic. Or maybe he's from Sweden or something.

If you want to fall asleep (faster) you should try foods high of tryptophan... (unless you're alergic to it =| ):

Quote:

SNOOZE FOODS

These are foods high in the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan:
# Dairy products: cottage cheese, cheese, milk
# Soy products: soy milk, tofu, soybean nuts
# Seafood
# Meats
# Poultry
# Whole grains
# Beans
# Rice
# Hummus
# Lentils
# Hazelnuts, Peanuts
# Eggs
# Sesame seeds, sunflower seeds

This site has other nutritional suggestions for falling asleep, and also shows you what to avoid.

How long do these foods take effect to get you sleepy?

From the page: "It takes around one hour for the tryptophan in the foods to reach the brain, so don't wait until right before bedtime to have your snack."

I no longer have trouble sleeping due to me getting used to taking naps after a night of little sleep and a day at school. Naps worked for me. But if I do have trouble sleeping now, I've realized it's due to this: It's extremely difficult to sleep when your eyes are focusing hard. You have to soften your eyes.

If you feel like there is a strain on your eyes, try this: Think about the area two inches above the roof of your mouth. I read this somewhere, and I swear you instantly feel more relaxed/drowsy. It also softens your eyes.

So, try that. Right now.

Does anyone have any tips for ridding of insomnia?
PostPosted: Thu 23 Aug, 2007  Reply with quote

When I try to sleep some nights, I find it hard to relax and calm my mind. It's like it won't shut up. Does anyone have any tips that can make you feel comfortable and relaxed after a stressing day? How can I get myself more sleepy. And please, nothing dirty... lol.

Sleepless Nights
PostPosted: Tue 04 Sep, 2007  Reply with quote

Don't you just hate it when you lying in bed for like 40 minutes and you don't feel tired at all? Well it's happening to me right now and I'm sick of it. I can't get to sleep sometimes, I'm not even tired! I went to bed at 2 AM last night and woke up at 12:00 PM eek2 (first time that ever happened for me to wake up that late). Anyone got any advice so we all can go to sleep when we want to?
