What if you wake up sooner than you want and can not fall back to sleep right away? For me, since my computer is in my bedroom, I will go online for a little while and then go back to sleep. Anybody do the same thing or something else?

I usually go on the net and come on here or read and write emails. My friends are never online that late or early in the morning so I can't chat with them. :-) Sometimes I just lay in bed and hope I fall asleep again.

I've been having this problem recently, so I come to the living room and power up my puter. I read message boards & play games at http://www.netwinner.com/?signupCode=TheCatzMeow1

If I wake up too early and can't go back to sleep then I most likely read something for a little bit or do things around the house that needs to get done.

From what I have heard, reading is a good way to help someone get to sleep. I usually go on the computer, though now I know that is not good and prevents people from not sleeping well. Sometimes I watch tv as well.

I will toss and turn until I cannot stand it. Then I am up, and that's it. I will do house chores and then get on the puter.

I do lots of tossing and turning in bed. LOL That is my most popular thing when getting up early or even going to bed. :-) The computer and tv are my other favorite things to do when I get up too soon.

I usually open the computer and work work work. And other times my husband would invite me to exercise and do some jogging or we would bring our baby in the beach to see the sunrise.

I think a lot of us like to get on the computer, whether to get onto myLot, chat online or other things. I would probably do some work at home too if I could. Taking your baby to the beach during the sunrise with your husband is very nice. :-)

That is cool that we do the same thing. There is always something to do on the internet or computer and it will make me sleepy, just like I am now. LOL

I guess I'm pretty lucky when it comes to staying asleep because I have never had this problem. The only sleep problem I have is going to sleep in the first place, which sometimes bothers me. When that happens I usually get up and read or surf the internet for about 20 minutes and then go back to bed. That usually does the trick for me.

If I wake up too early, I end up surfing the internet for a little while but not too long. Sometimes I will watch a little tv as well.

I know this was months ago but are you still getting up at odd hours of the night. This past week I have been sleeping much better and not waking up as much during the weird hours of the night. Hopefully you are getting plenty of rest too. I do not eat anything when I wake up but I do come online often. :-)

We have something in common here. My computer is always on so I usually make a cup of coffee and log onto the internet. The problem is that I get involved and too often end up still awake and online a couple of hours later.

Yes, my computer is always on too because if I turn it off and turn it back on it is so slow and takea while before I can actually do anything on it. :-) yes, I do end up online longer than I had planned as well.

A playstation 2 gamer I see. :-) I have the system but I hardly ever play games anymore. I use my system to watch my dvd movies more than anything now.

At first I would try to close my eyes and hope I'll fall back to sleep. If that doesn't work, I get up and go to my living room to watch tv and if that doesn't work either, then I surf the internet and check me e-mails. Looking at the computer screen makes me go to sleep at nights.

yes, looking at the computer screen does make me sleepy and sometimes watching tv will do the same thing for me. Thinking about work makes me tired too. :-)

I do that on my work days. I will get up early but want to get some more sleep before I really have to get up and get ready for another day at the office.

That is interesting. I never check my cellphone if I wake up. I definitely go on my computer though and come on here or check my emails.

Very good answer. :-) though I have a hard time going back to sleep without doing something else first.

Come post in myLot or check Email, play a game, etc. I think a Computer and myLot can help any time go faster when you are having troubles sleeping.

Yes, I agree with you there. I am up early right now so I will be going back to bed shortly. I have no plans for today other than do laundry and watch some football and be on here. :-)

That sounds like a good idea to go on to MyLot and listen to music or something else. I might have to try that as well. Thanks. :-)

That is nice that you don't have a problem with waking up sooner that you want to. Sometimes I will sleep well but not all the time.

I power up my computer and read a bit. It is a quiet activity and disturbs no one (unless I make some controversial comment -- smiles). Like you, after a time, I will become sleepy.

Thank you for your comment. Fortunately, I don't have anyone that I can wake up other than myself so going on the computer during the night isn't a problem. Eventually I will get sleepy and go back to bed. :-)

I am an avid reader so I usually read for awhile and then go back to sleep but if the insomnia is real bad,I will go on my computer as it is also in my bedroom.

I usually lay in bed hoping to go back to sleep, but if not, I go to the computer or just turn on the TV and hope I fall to sleep soon :).
