trouble falling asleep
Posted 3/19/08
laetly ive had a difficult time trying to fall asleep. i dont want to take any sleep aids, but it seems like i cant turn my brain off from thinking too much at night. I blocked the sunlight from getting in my room and have an alarm clock that plays soothing music but it dosnt really help. I was wondering if there is anything specific any of you do to help you fall asleep fast. What do you think about, do eating certain foods help. any info would be good so what are your thoughts.

i have trouble sleeping too, so much that i only get about four hors of sleep each night.

so i have time to look around in the forums and find little things like this:

I say exercise before you go to sleep. You'll get a work out and become tired.

Exercising before you sleep is the worst possible thing you can do.

Exercising releases endorphines into your system that are designed to make you have MORE energy...

Hm, I didn't know that. *goes to look it up* Well to the OP, just think about your day and maybe you'll just happen to fall asleep.

Well, the problem itself is that you think too much before going to sleep. Try not to think about problems because you tend to wake yourself up trying to find an answer. How bout try thinking about what you want to do the next day or perhaps plan what you'll do in the weekends? Just don't stress yourself.

actually its recommanded that you should not do that. it just makes it harder for you to sleep for some reason. thats why they're always like if you go exercise, sit down and stretch, or rest for a bit before going straight to sleep.

I have the same problem, insomnia is my worst enemy.

However, this often works for me: I try to remember the dream I had the night before. Then I run through it in my head, trying to picture every scene in great detail. Purposely putting myself back into the scene of a dream seems to help my brain prepare for sleep. It's also a relaxing break from thinking about problems and such.

Might not work for everyone, but well worth a try.

I have trouble sleeping a lot. Sometimes days at a time. Then all of I sudden my body can't take it and I crash. So I started to drink chamomile tea, melatonin, methyln, and benadryl. It helps.That's what my doctor told me to do.
