Do you ever feel like your whole body wanted to sleep but your mind would not cooperate? Urrgh, it's kinda frustrating though. It's like 5pm here in the Philippines and I'll be heading to work around 11pm tonight but I still don't have enough sleep. I already tried to drink a glass of milk, but it didn't help. Can you like give me tips on how to feel asleep right away? TIA

Listening to a soft music such as love songs could be also a helpful one to let you fall asleep fast.

If dimming the lights, putting eye mask on, or meditating don't work, sometimes I deliberately pray the rosary while lying down and it always works, how blasphemous that may sound. But it puts me in a very calm, soothing, peaceful place, I have no other choice but to sleep.

Occasionally, I do have a difficult time falling asleep. When times of active brain and hours ticking by, I drink a Valerian Root cap. then I fall asleep within half an hour of drinking it.I like Valerian Root caps for it's not habit forming and has no side effects. Safe and it works. I bought Sleepy Time Tea and this did not work for me. Valerian Root works for me. Hope this helps. Walmart has the cheapest Valerian Root caps. in their vitamin section of the store. If no walmart, try ebay.com or amazon for which ever is cheaper. I hope this helps. My Valerian Root is 400 mg valerian root extract with 100 mg of valerian root. so it's 500 mg of Valerian Root total.

Oh, that's so helpful. I hope we have Valerian Root Caps here in the Philippines. Or maybe I can try to check online then. Thank you

@Sundie You're very welcome. I like Valerian Root because it's not habit forming, nor does it have any side effects...so safe and easy to use when you need it. We all have stressful or worrisome time that keeps us awake, so nice to have such a simple remedy to it. Wish you luck and till it arrives, try to relax and say I want to sleep good tonight and right away when in bed, this positive affirmation and the Lord's Prayer helps so you feel protected and in control. Take care!

There are times that if I cant sleep, I think a lot unil my mind got tired and feel sleepy, if my body doesnt want to sleep, I make my body tired until my body feel tired, probably one of the reason why you feel that, its because you been not active that day and your body didnt meet its tiring limit

I think the best way to fall asleep is by avoiding thinking too much and just relax so that you can sleep fast.

Most nights I have an easy time falling asleep. Although there are nights like last night when I seem to have a harder time falling asleep for some reason.

Whenever I feel this, all I do is watch movies online or on Netflix. Or stay here and talk to people until I feel sleepy.
