It really depends on the evening. A lot of the time I will watch movies. I will also get on mylot, or search the internet for recipes or books. Sometimes I will read. Most of the time I try to go to sleep.

Like amybrezik, I also watch movies. But I do it lying down instead of sitting down. It makes my eyes drope faster, bringing me quickly to sleep. At times I read non-fiction books. If a read a very good fiction book, I may not be able to sleep in the end.

I generally tend to read a good book when I can't sleep. It helps me to relax and usually manage to settle down to sleep again after a little while

take a shower then drink hot milk cos it will relax you, then later you'll fall asleep my friend.. I sometimes experience difficulty in sleeping, so I would just watch korean drama/movie online..But, If I really have to go to bed early so I take bath and drink hot milk. hope it'll help.

When I can't fall asleep. I like to sip some tea. I try reading a book. Or taking a Bath. Or I turn on the radio to some smooth jazz or something classical.

Hi, anitarei. When I had some matters on my mind, I couldn't sleep. Sleepless nights are terrible experience, tossing and turning in bed, even if you felt tired. Sometimes, reading helps me sleep. It depends on individuals. You can find some useful methods online to improve your sleep, but I suggest the natural ways. Keep well!

Well, this is purely dependent on the time that I cannot sleep. There are some times where I get woken up in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Then as it turns out, despite my best efforts, I cannot sleep. I try, believe me I try, but no matter what I do, no matter what I try, I am unable to go to sleep. So I am likely to turn on the computer and get some work done. Might as well do something productive if it is in the morning. However, there are times where it is hard to get to sleep right out of the starting gate. The minute I intend to sleep in the night, when I hit the pillow, I am tossing and turning and trying to get comfortable for an insane amount of time. During this time, I really try and get to sleep, because it is not like I have slept for several hours before getting up. If I try and do anything, I am just delaying when I go to sleep. So if its before I even get any sleep, I just force myself to go to sleep.

I have been going through a sleeping disorder for almost 6 years. It's really hard to have insomnia because as much as i wanted to sleep early, i can't. :( maybe the reason is, there are many things going through my head... i have been worrying about my illness, my family, future, partner and other things. you know, i wanted to have a normal life, achieve my dreams not only for myself but also for the people i truly love. however, how could i do that if my illness is stopping me from doing anything? :'(

hi anitarei321, Wanted to fall asleep? reading interesting stories before bed is one way helping you to sleep. your eyes would get tired by doing into it. Interesting stories would help you kill the time and finding yourself in bed.the best time to indulge your self into it is between 11pm to 3 am that helps your body re generate your cells and other internal organs functions well. Sleeping is one secrete staying to be a beautiful woman..

When i cannot sleep, i just text my boyfriend and he will call me and we will talk for the rest of the evening until I fall asleep. But when he is too tired from his study I just do some household chores like cleaning my room and washing my clothes. i suffered from terrible insomnia before and i couldnt sleep for the whole day.

As far as I am concerned, when I can not sleep at the time to go to sleep, I think I have a lot of things to do to help me fall asleep soon. I think the first thing that I want to choose is listen to the light which can influence you a lot in helping you fall asleep. When you listen to music, you may lose yorself into the songs and may forget all the things around you. Soon with out awareness in your mind, soon will you get into a deep sleep.

If I do a lot of sport afternoon, I'll fall asleep very soon in the night. Currently, I am mad on swimming. I swim 1km per day at 6:00, about 10:00 at night, I begin to feel sleepy very much. Maybe you can have a try. I hope it's helpful.
