Trouble sleeping?






When I have trouble getting to sleep at night a nice tall glass of milk and chocolate chip cookies is the calming effect I need!! Share your anecdote!! Pictures would be nice. Maybe a song helps or a prayer? Whatever helps you I want to know.

Alcohol.


Stay Single.

It's cheaper.





Milk and cookies won't do it.

I am one of the worlds worst sleepers.

It doesnt matter if I'm dog tired.. the minute I lay down and my head hits the pillow, my mind just cant ease into sleep.

I can lay away in bed for 3-4-5hrs sometimes all the way through to sunrise.

Its affected my father too since he was a kid.

Copious amounts of alcohol help (but thats more passing out than sleep)
warm milk, hot showers.. dont really do much.

I want to try sounds, like rain or soft wind or those background tapes you can get that are peaceful.

You know I've always wondered if high intelligence has anything to do with insomnia. I could be wrong but it seems to me that if you can never go to sleep that means your brain is always active, always "on" and alert.

This is all probably mumbo jumbo but I've noticed this with people that are a little more "perceptive" then most.

To add to the thread, try taking Epsom salt baths, or, one of the best methods, exercise. Exercise has helped me in the past. If that doesn't do anything try staying up for 3 days straight looking at ATS.

That will knock your ass out and you'll sleep like a baby. Caution: Hallucinations may occur.

I found your post funny. Honestly, I can't sleep without zanax. That's why I'm up so late. Gonna give it another try.

Melatonin does the trick for me. Also, avoiding caffeine / energy drinks, but I am really bad at that

I have the same problem, can't fall asleep when i put my head on the pillow.

But, then i got a little trick from a illusionist, it's a little silly, but works every single time.

Your mind needs to relax to fall asleep, and to do that you need to trick the mind to not think about anything at all that keeps the brain active.

What you do is.

Count to 10 slowly, for every number, you think of moving one finger, but don't move the finger, when you reach 10, start over.

I'll bet you sleep before you reach 50.
The first couple of times you feel a little stupid doing it, but don't let that bother you, cause that thought alone can keep you awake, just relax, and it will work 100%

It simply trick the mind in to not thinking about anything, and the brain relax, and release the chemical Melatonin in your brain that is one of the things that makes you fall asleep.

Isn't that the same as counting sheep. Works unless you are from New Zealand.

Well pretty much, and thats why counting sheep has been a tool to fall asleep for many years, it's not a myth.

I tried to count girls once, it didn't work out well

I love to sleep in the pitch black darkness, with no sound, and I might have a snack. But something small and sweet. Yeah! Good mood food.

If I put on a really good movie that is super interesting and decide that I really want to stay awake and watch it I fall asleep every time. It's like using reverse psychology on myself or something.
