I had some tea and that did nothing. Maybe I should try and read. Does watching a boring anime series work too?


Tea could work but you have to do it right. When making hot tea, drop the tea bag into the water, don't mix it, this messes up the diffusion process. After waiting about five minutes, you can drink the tea, make sure you don't cap the tea as smelling the herbs in the tea is good for you.

Also don't add artificial sweeteners, it ruins it. If you want sugar, use sugar. When adding milk, make the sure the temperature of the milk is the same as that of the water of the tea. This ensures quality. After taking all these steps, it should work !

Tea usually has caffeine in it, doesn't it?

hmm it could and you should drink chamomile tea, it helps when trying to fall asleep


I drunk some Sleepy Time tea and that did nothing for me. I'm yawning but I can't seem to sleep.

Watch anime but make sure the autoplay feature is not on in case you fall asleep so you don't end up watching an entire series without doing so. It has happen to me a number of times. Also try doing something that relaxes your anxiety or get someone to do it for you, It's different for different people :-)


Eating? Can that help me?!


If your talking about relaxing anxiety, i was thinking of something other than food lol, but it could possibly work

Not anxiety but simply unable to sleep. I had an apple and that ain't gonna do anything. Is it?

qualeshia3 Simply tell me how do you find a way to get some sleep when you're too alert? I'm asking because I CAN'T SLEEP AND I AM STARTING TO GET ANNOYED! I HAVE TO WORK AT 7:30 am AND I CAN'T SLEEP! Got any tips on what you would do.


When I was a kid, especially on school nights, I couldn't get to sleep, period. Usually because I was too worried about not getting to sleep and having enough sleep time left.

And now that I'm older, and turning into my parents, I know why:
1) Your internal clock has rhythms--If you go to bed at the exact same time for a week, you'll find yourself getting tired at the same hour, whether you want to or not.
2) The basic premise of hypnotism is to distract the conscious thoughts with "white noise", allowing the subconscious to take over--Which I discovered when I set my tablet on a 15-minute shutoff timer, turned on an audiobook to listen to with the lights off, and found I could never remember more than the first five minutes of what I was listening to, the next morning. (Yep, the first thing that goes when you're falling asleep is your language processor, which is how you can fall asleep listening to the TV.)
Oh, and
3) Cut out the danged coffee. Starbucks Must Die.

Anxiety can also prevent sleep especially if something big is happening to you tomorrow. And for the last time, i said it's different for different people and food does not relaxes MY anxiety. Find what does it for you, if that makes any sense

I'm making tea again. Hopefully it will work if I try it out your way. Does writing help?

Not for me, i avoid writing as much as possible except if it's required for a course lol. But i doubt writing has any therapeutic effects expect if you have something bothering your mind

I usually just put on some relaxing music but if that doesn't work I'll read a little bit or watch a video or two.
