I've been having trouble sleeping recently. Has anyone got any tips for a good nights rest. Many thanks in advance.
Want an easy way to go to sleep? Do an introspective look at your entire day. Lay in bed, think about every detail that occurred throughout the entire day. You will likely not have any problem falling asleep.
I havent the slightest idea I have had this problem my entire life and I am 27.. I never can sleep at night and I remember being this way as a small child the only one up runnin around the house playing with legos and what not... and here I sit it is now 12 midnight and i am wide awake... I think I will be this way all my life probably so I pretty much just accepted it... so honestly not an idea really but maybe try some tea because once in a GREAT while it will help me relax..... sorry but good luck to ya
Effexor is a brand name for Venlafaxine. Effexor is an antidepressant in a group called selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors or SSNRIs.http://www.effexorantidepressant.net/ (Venlafaxine) is a structurally novel antidepressant for oral administration.
IF youdrink shit loads of energy drinks or stuff with high caffine in, in the morning, exercise like hell during the day and you should find that you should be knackered. when you sleep, you brain gets used to the sleeping pattern and you should hopefully be able to sleep like normal people again. well thats how i cured my problem of lack of sleep !
Just found this interesting website regarding
Sleep and insomnia...more information
click here http://doctoronline.cit4u.com
sounds good i currently have 0/3 of those items. may need to do a little shopping
Rent the Watchmen that movie puts me to sleep every time.
Reading sometimes works for me...but I am in the same boat as you...haven't been able to sleep for a while due to stress and my mind unable to shut down...but reading helps relax me as well as writing.
And the bath does work sometimes too. Hope you find eomthing that words for you.
Any ladies or gentlemen....care to join the fun?
Go to a health foods shop and purchace either tea or tablets that have a herb called Vallerian in it..Sorry i'm not sure if that's how it's spelled, but it's pronounced that way.
For a period of a few months last year, i was depressed and i had really bad insomnia. I would have a cup of vallerian tea an hour before going to bed, and then i'd be out like a light. It did make me vomit quite often, i don't know why, but it works very well.
You should not be looking for a magic supplement to help you sleep,
what is your health and nutrition like? Often people who have trouble sleeping are not getting the proper nutrients to allow themselves to fall asleep.
Take a glass of Haulicks and ask God to make you sleep. the Bible says "He gives His beloved sleep"
have really dim lights or no light in the bedroom, take a warm bath before going to bed, put on soft instrumental music, close your eyes and start counting (you will get bored and doze off), work out to make yourself tired so that you can hit the bed easily and if nothing works see a doc and get sedatives
melatonin is your brain's natural sleep chemical, sometimes we may not produce enough of it,or do not produce it early enough to feel sleepy at bedtime, this is most often in teens, that is why they like to and can stay up so late and want to sleep in. you can find the supplement melatonin over the counter at your vitamin section, take it after dinner sometime and it may help boost your sleepy feeling in a more natural way. Also try going to bed and waking up at the same times everyday, this will train your body to have a better schedule of sleep and wake. good luck!
For occasional sleeplessness, peppermint teat or chamomile tea works well. Or a peppermint/chamomile blend. I don't recommend candles if you are going to be sleeping, can you say fire hazard? Haha but using a light lavender scented room spray can help, as can having a very warm bath and relaxing. Alcohol will help you sleep but it will not give you a good rest so I don't recommend that unless you have 10-12 hours to just sleep.
Everyone has a night or two of sleeplessness sometimes, it's not a sign of poor health like everyone seems to think nowadays. Most of the time it is caused by too much thinking, you need something to shut your mind off for long enough to drift off.
If your not sleeping because you are thinking too much, then wash your hands and feet with cold water. Put on warm socks and when you get back in bed, put your hands in your arm pits.
It sounds crazy, written out like this, but it works because it pulls the blood supply away from your brain to warm your extremities back up. My husband uses it regularly.
Try Yogi Tea Bedtime! It is amazing and knocks you out naturally.
A lot of the tips below all boil down to different ways to relax, so you need to find what works for you individually. Essentially you need to go to bed in a relaxed frame of mind to give yourself the chance to sleep. Personally I think it is important to have some calm winding down time before your bedtime; to stop working / serious thinking and do something that you enjoy and that relaxes you, while not stimulting your brain too much.
While a glass of wine certainly can help, too much alcohol can be detrimental to a good full night of sleep. A milky drink helps many people to start to feel sleepy. Hope you're sleeping better by now!
I also have major insomnia. I almost never get more than 2-3 hours of sleep each night!!
I have tried wine, baths, candles, warm milk, lavendar, tea, working out, reading boring books, tv nothing works!!
I would never want to get addicted to sleeping pills so I don't take them. Instead I drink lots of coffee and just stay up which will probably ruin my skin by the time I hit my 30s!
When I cannot sleep I take a wine/small glass and it works well for me. Mostly I cannot sleep if I am stressed out.
There seem to be an endless amount of suggestions from a small glass of wine, over the counter medication right up to doctor prescribed sleeping pills, from all these people. Wow what a response.
I have longed battled with not getting the magical 8 hour sleep.If I got 2 to 3 that was a full nights sleep. When I had enough of lack of sleep, I decided to end the cycle. I found out why I was not sleeping. I went to a sleep clinic. In fact I was sleeping. I was going into ' rem sleep ' within 45 second of laying down. So in fact I was skipping the usual steps right to the deepest level. That is why 2 to 3 hours worked. This did not make it right by any means but I did learn the reason for not sleeping is a ' Sleeping Disorder '
Go to a Sleep Clinic and learn the true reason you are not sleeping. Your body needs to rest.
All the best to finding your sleeping health.
I have just made a hub about a device that can help you out. This device is really good. I have even links to manufacturers' website.

My SMI (Severely Mentally Ill) wife suffers from lifelong insomnia. She's tried everything you can think of, and without "chemical help" (prescription drugs), she barely sleeps at all, sometimes for weeks on end.
In her case, the ONLY thing that DOES work is a prescription drug called Trazodone. It's used for depression and anxiety, but other drugs in that category DON'T work--only Traz (also known by a bunch of other names) does.
In my case, over the years I've developed a surefire thing (for me) based on a "body position trigger". Namely, I go "belly down"...and boom, out like a light.
Recommended that once to a lady with double D development; didn't work so well...
I always sleep soundly, not when I have menstruation my stomach hurts
Ice cold shower about an hour before bed, it really works.
Establishing a pattern before getting into bed helps me and if I can't sleep I get up and after a drink of water and a short walk around the house I usually try again with much better success.
Get up every day at the exact same time, seven days a week.
Exercise in some way every day.
No protein before bed. Carbs could help you sleep.
