Is there anying on your mind?I usually get good sleep but when sth bad come up I would not be able to sleep well.Just clean those things that make you upset from mind.Drinking a bottle of milk before going to sleep.I hope this would help. If you always wake up in the middle of sleep without any reason and you don't feel tired the next morning then it is not a bad thing.At least you have more time to do things you like than others.

Yes i am having enough sleep every day.There are just some times when i get back pains in the morning those are the times i get up and sit.Even in the afternoons here the climate is very hot.I cannot sleep because of the heat waves and the sweat coming out from the body.If i put pain killers i can sleep the whole night very well.

I feel sorry for you not able to sleep. Why not just get up out of bed and wrap yourself in a warm blanket, have a cup of warm milk and watch TV or read a book until you get sleepy? That's what I would do. It usually works. Don't just lie there in bed trying to get back to sleep because 9 times out of 10 you won't. If I may also suggest to you...get more exercise during the day. Tire your body out. Take long walks, run, skip, jump. Just move. You don't need pills to get to sleep, you need to feel tired, really tired. If your dreams are waking you up, find out what they mean.

I get between 4 and 6 hours a night and that is more than enough for me. I might sleep a little more on the weekends. I think sleeping too much can take up too much time and sometimes it can be wasted time, just sleeping for the sake of it. If I could go with out sleep altogether, I would but it is not something that is possible. I think some people just need more or less sleep than others. Everyone is different.

I do have enough sleep. It's my choice to have enough sleep. When I was younger, I wouldn't sleep longer than five hours and it was not good for my health. You can actually change you sleeping patterns if you want to.

I sleep 6 hours per day. I do sleep after 12PM but usually I will wake at 6, you know, I'm muslim and should pray before morning. If I can not sleep 6 hours at night, I will add it in the afternoon after 12 :D. So it means, I have enough sleep everyday and I'm very grateful with that. :D

From Sunday to Thursday, I try to go to bed at the same time (between 10 and 11) and wake up at 6am every day for work. There are only a couple of times (during the night) where I'll get up and look at my clock and go back to bed. Friday and Saturday nights, it doesn't matter what time I go to bed at all. Last Friday, I ended up going to bed around midnight, but didn't fall asleep until after 3am. Saturday night, I went to bed around 2am, but I had to get up around 5am, since I was going away for the day. I would suggest to try a sleeping schedule. Maybe that will work =). Best of luck.

Ever heard of 8 hours of sleep makes a well rested refreshed person? Well, if you're able to get that good for you, but I'm lucky to get 4 or 5 hours. My life is so hectic its hard to fall asleep, and when I actually do the baby wakes up, or the alarm goes off, or somebody upstair slams a door. I wouldn't advise taking pills just yet, but talking to your doctor about it is a definite must. My doctor was very helpful to me when I talked to her about it.

No lalola24! I have not had enough sleep for the past few days as my schedule is getting really busy these days and I am the kind of person for whom even 8 hours of sleep may be less. I sleep around 1 am in the morning and have to get up by 7 but this is not because I have a lot of work, yes I do work till 11, 12 midnight but after that I generally sit on my laptop watching movies or surfing and I hardly know when I kill time. SO considering that I think I really curse myself then when I get up in the morning that I did not hit the sack earlier at night. Anyways, generally on weekends I am able to sleep for long hours and really enjoy the sleep as it is generally a weekend and there is no kind of duty pressure that is looming over your head. And yes, it is pretty wise of you to avoid taking pills as it will only do more harm to you than good. Anyways best of luck..
