set your alarm for about 6 o clock, go out and run, work in your yard w.e wear yourslef out. do that as many days in a row until you start going to bed at lets say 10, your sleep cycle will start to go back to the way you want it.

I mow the lawn every weekend so I don't know if that'll do much. I guess I could get outside and not on my computer 24/7.

That happened to me last night. grrr I was completely dead from nine to ten, then I had to go up to my room at ten. I thought I'd fall back asleep right away. No. I was laying in bed for almost an hour. Grr. grrr

Ya, I hate that feeling more than I can describe. And it doesn't help when my room is hot either. I usually go to the bathroom, rinse my face off, go downstairs for a snack and warm milk, read a bit, then try again. It mostly happens before something important when I'm nervous, like the first day back to school.

I've been getting into a regular sleep schedule lately. It feels nice. What I do is drink chamomile tea about a half hour before I want to go to bed. I browse the forums for a bit to get my mind on LDs. And then I get in bed and try Dork's advice:

"Think about the area two inches above the roof of your mouth."

It works really well, actually.

This may work for the average 'Joe', but I work shift work. This is a combination of working days and nights. It sucks because I go through episodes of insomnia, and cant keep a regular sleep schedule. Any advice from fellow shift workers out there.

I have a really SERIOUS sleep problem!!! Please help me out with any advice.

I have to drive to college for an hour and a half on the highway and then have a 7 hour day and drive back. Well I've been doing this without sleep at least 5-6 times this semester!! If this keeps up I'll probably kill myself. Not sleeping screws with my complexion, I can't concentrate, I look terrible, my immune system weakens and I catch colds much easier, etc.! And as terrible as this is, I still want to stay away from Night/Day medication because I'm allergic to a lot of drugs and I don't want to get addicted.

When I try to sleep, I can't shut my mind up especially when I'm anxious or excited. TV and going on the internet or something like that definitely does NOT help since I start concentrating on that. Or I keep playing a song in my head.

I read someone was recommending Kava tea. Does this really work?

Lina: I don't know where i read it, but someone recommended that whenever you have a thought, notice it, take a word or a couple of them, and repeat again and again, extremely slow and sloooower for each time, so slow that you can't even remember what word you begun with... It works.

If you have looping thoughts and concerns, write them down and tell yourself to leave it THERE on the paper and go to sleep _here_.

<mod>moved to Insomnia - Can't sleep! Part II moogle </mod>

I have troubles in falling asleep. If I wake up (In order to Wake Back To Bed), I almost never can't fall back asleep (WILD-ing or not)

Also, I can't nap.

in fact, Unless I am dead tired, I have troubles falling asleep.

Any advice?

I used to be nervous the night before an important exam, and i couldn't sleep. I was drinking camomile, and it helped me a bit. Maybe you should give it a try smile Also check out the "Big insomnia topic", you might find some useful hints and tips.

Personally i think it's usually psychological. If you try to relax and don't push yourself, you might sleep. Try thinking "i can't sleep --so what? No problem. So, i will just close my eyes and if i sleep, ok, if not, no problem".
