When I can't sleep, I try the relaxing method that the lorica on its CDs for hypnosis that usually puts me to write to sleep! Just relax and let your mind relax concentrate on different parts your body tell him to relax eventually you will be sound asleep

I used to suffer from Insomnia, the very best thing I've discovered to help me fall asleep is melatonin. It's cheap, and it's not a behind the counter medication. It's also a natural thing produced in our brain.

That sounds like a great remedy that I need to try. I have a lot of trouble sleeping due to a health problem that keeps me up sometimes. Sometimes I just can't get to sleep and sometimes I have trouble staying awake. So I can relate to to sleep problems. I think I'll try the melatonin remedy. Thanks for the recommendation. Is there a specific brand you can recommend?

I had that problem last night.  Don't eat any sweets or drink soda before bed.  I hope you get some rest.  I know how you feel.

For me it has to do with a busy mind that wont be quiet. It is thinking about things that bother me, what I have to do the next day, etc etc. What I do about that is before I go to bed write! Get it all down on paper..feelings, to do list etc. Resolve it in my mind so I don't lay there and think about it all. Experts say, turn off TV, radio, music etc a half hour before sleep. Stop allexcercise 2 hours before sleep. (These things leave your body over stimulated which makes it harder to sleep) Food: If you must....no sugar starch or caffeine, eat a protein snack..nuts, chicken strips etc, but not too much. Keep your room as dark as possible, and cool. If your mind starts to wander, think thoughts like how sleep nourished the body, that you are worthwhile and so deserving of sleep. Keep your thoughts in that direction to block out other thoughts. Hope it helps :wave:

Melatonin is the only thing that works for me, too.  It is the only thing that gets my brain to go to sleep!  You have to go to bed within 20 minutes or so of taking it, though.  There is NO after effect the next day.  That is one of the best parts about it!  You find it near the vitamins.

Sometimes it is hard to sleep properly when we have a lot of different things on our minds. Remove the stress factors from your life.

If I find myself laying in bed for more than 30 minutes and not being able to fall asleep, that's when I get up and do something.  It generally ranges from exercising, cleaning, working, etc.  Normally I try to do something that won't prevent me from going to sleep when I get tired though.  One thing to try is watch a movie (non-scary) one in a dark room.  For me, my body will remain awake more often if I am in a fully lit room then if I am in a dark room.

It sounds like you have insomnia. You should ask your doctor if their is something you can take, like Ambien or something. The only times I can't sleep are whenever I constantly think about different things at night.

OTC sleeping meds usually work pretty great. If those don't work you're going to have to see a doctor. Or there are some other remedies like tea, melatonin, and valerian root. Sometimes eating or drinking before bed can keep you awake or taking in too much caffeine during the day.
