if you have something on your mind, write it down so you'll remember it in the morning. sometimes we cant sleep because we're thinking about all these things and dont wanna forget it. not sure if it'll help you, but it does help me. good luck. set your alarm clock in case you do fall asleep!

Try just laying down for a bit. Even if you don't fall asleep, try to just relax & rest.

I have had that happen and a warm bath, warm milk, and some turkey (not kidding, ever eat a turkey dinner and feel sleepy after?). Tryptophan (spelling?) makes you sleepy. Reading will do it too or I will put in a really boring TV show and soon I am asleep.

sorry for the late reply...thx for the tips. We are not very familiar with turkey but i do notice that after eating a meal, I always feel sleepy. but I got a new trick. My bf suggested me to do some exercising before sleeping to waste all energy I have, it works really good.

Exercise, any time of the day, will help you sleep well. Good for you and tell your boyfriend he is smart!
