Guaranteed when I have an appointment or something I have to do in the morning, I will have trouble sleeping. There are several things I try to do when I can't sleep: make sure I'm warm enough (I often use a heating pad over my legs to calm me); I read in bed; I drink a cup of hot milk with honey; and think relaxing thoughts rather than fretting about what I have no control over. Sweet dreams!
I have to admit that I also drink a cup of hot milk with sugar in - for some reason it does really work :-)
Reading a book in bed is a great way of making the eyes tired and getting you off too sleep.Also a bit of warm milk before bed also helps
I just close my eyes and let my body go taut and relax and keep doing this letting the relaxing breaks get longer and longer.
I get my self a warm glass of milk, and find something to read.
If I don't want to sleep I read something very interesting, write poetry, create hubs etc
Haha I wish I liked milk XP makes me feel gross but I am not lactose intolerant.
Sometimes I go on HP but usually I just read. I find a glass of water helps as I can't drink milk either.
Lie there and think about things that are sitting on my mind and bothering me.
I get up and go to the couch, lie down to watch TV, and that usually does it! Or I stay in bed and try to remember every little thing I did that day,,, in reverse order. That usually helps, kinda like counting sheep.
I can't stand the idea of warm milk. I suppose if it were hot chocolate it might be ok. My sister in law wakes up in the middle of the night and drinks a pot of coffee. Then she goes to the doctor and tells him that she can't sleep at night. He gives her pills and she goes home and sleeps all day. Then she wakes up at 2 am and makes more coffee. She goes to the doctor at the end of the pills.
If I can't sleep at night, I get up and make a ham sandwich, eat a sack of chips and wash it all down with a diet coke. If I still can't sleep, I have a bowl of ice cream and a can of sardines.
I can sleep just about anytime I want. Deep breathing and clearing my mind works (clearing my mind is easy "cause there's not much left I also like what Steveo said.
You'll find it very interesting and funny. When i can not sleep, i close my eyes and count number of sheep in my farm as soon as i reach 50-55, i feels sleepy and get normal sleep.
I will lay in bed and think or get up and do something until I get sleepy.
