Hi, During my sleepless nights, i always prefer songs ringing in my ears, and believe me it had worked out very well , as it becomes a lullaby to me and makes me to have a great sleepy night. I also recommend you to have very quick gulps of water, as it refreshes your brain and makes you tension free, so it gets you to sleep well. few people sleep when they watch tv and fall sleepy without their knowledge. I also know people giving me advice , they say, focus on some points on wall or clock, you will feel sleepy,,,but it hardly worked for me. So i hope you got my points :) Take care

Well, it just happened to me now and then. When I can't sleep, I would do the following: relax my whole body, and then take deep and slow breath. Sometimes that would be useful. I used to try to sleep by counting number, but failed, that even maked me more excited. And another method which I just read it on book is to make your up and down teeth knocked each other. If all of those are not useful, the better way is to take medicine, like sleeping pills.

I get up, get a warm glass of milk, turn the t.v on, and get on the computer. It's so distracting, it helps put my mind at ease. I check my mail or see if anyone is on i.m. Before I know it I'm so helplessly tired and crawl into bed.

When I can't sleep. I would read book or listen to the music I like. Then I can sleep well. For you. you can choose some kind of sports or anything else you like to do.

I very rarely struggle to get to sleep, because I am usually very tired and I'm sure I could sleep standing up if I had to! On those rare occasions when I have trouble dozing off I get up and start doing my morning chores until I feel very tired and eventually get back into bed and sleep. I hate lying there unable to fall asleep, so I figure I may as well not waste the time and start my work. I have to agree with part of imtooz's response "no day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap". I try, although it's not always possible, to catch a "nana nap" during the day sometime if I am feeling really sleep deprived.

If I'm lying in bed, and I cannot sleep, I will fantasize about something. It can be about anything really. Usually that hels me.

Usually I just get up and search the internet or get on mylot or even just play solitaire and watch tv. If I can't sleep, then there is no point in laying in the bed, I just get frustrated.

Can't sleep? In fact, it seldom happens to me. But my friend told me that if she can't sleep she will count sheep: one sheep, two sheep, three sheep...then she fell asleep unconsciously. May it helps.

When that happens, I would read a book, watch TV or Dvds, or even go online - and not worry about not being able to sleep. I would eventually feel tired and doze off!
