a high-energy work-out usually does it for me. i'm so tired i just sleep like the dead.


Working out actually increases your energy, contrary to popular belief, but it does work for some.

Best way to cure insomnia (according to my Psych survey course) is to moderate your sleeping pattern.

If you go finally pass out at 6 AM, the next night try to go sleep at 5. Night after that, 4. Etc., etc.

Course recommended that insomniacs not take sleeping pills like Ambien (spelling?) because it disrupts this cycle and delays the repair of your regular sleeping schedule.

Well, I have to go back to work today, probably a 10 hour shift right off the bat .

But, I have been up for 48 hours or so again , and see no sleep in sight.

Edit: The plant was in shutdown for the last 2 weeks , so I haven't worked in a while, which makes it even worse.

I definitely recommend listening to Yiruma. =3 His songs are so good, yet they put me to sleep. <3

pornos help me go to sleep. I dont even watch them just put it on pump up the sound and turn my back on it and try to sleep. Strange really lol

^ ...actually strange...

...it depends on the individual's personality really, I prefer to tire myself so I can have a dreamless sleep...but I read a book that said visualizing a calming scene can help you sleep... like a beach scene, with the sun shining brightly, the sound of waves and tropical birds....

...and that book also says putting a pinch of salt at the tip of your tongue helps too...

I just skipped a night of sleep. Hoping I can be tired enough tonight to get on a regular sleep schedule.

Just tire yourself and relax. Then you can easily sleep once you feel how tired you are. Or, go buy one of those bed in commercial where you put a cup with water and jump around it won't fall over. My grandma have one of those, it works.
