i'm trying to sleep but i can't... i feel sleepy but i can't fall asleep. i thought that if i come home very tired, it'd be easier for me to fall asleep. but i was wrong. i'm wrong...it's harder to fall asleep when you're overly tired, too tired to fall asleep.

Maybe not too tired to sleep... but too tense. Relax. When you're really tired you tend to get tense, but in order to sleep you need to relax. A glass of warm milk or tea (Nothing caffeinated!) could help you to wind down. If that doesn't work then take a nice warm shower or bath (Don't fall asleep in the tub), and then dry off and curl up in the covers.

i feel you! i also have this kind of sleeping problem. i want to sleep but i can't sleep at all. though my body and mind are soooo tired because of work, i find it really hard to sleep. i'm trying myself to relax a bit more before sleeping but no effect at all. i am also drinking milk, again no effect. i don't know what to do so i just let my body tell me, hey sleep now. so usually i am sleeping at 1am-2am almost everyday. and i have a work at 9am. hahahaha! too bad, right?

I go through that sometimes -- too tired to sleep Maybe you are wound up about something. Is something stressing you out or bothering you? Try to relax. Read something boring Hope sleep comes soon for you. Sweet dreams.

Try drinking a glass of milk or taking a hot shower to calm your nerves. Also, don't try too hard to fall asleep or you won't be able to do so. Just relax and let your body rest.

usually if you have trouble falling asleep and the body feels tired, I try to shut my eyes with a soft cloth so that the nerves become more relaxed and usually falls asleep so that when I wake back already feels more fresh bodies

Yes! I have experienced that too. There are times when we are too tired to sleep and its really difficult to get a rest. I totally understand how you feel. I think you are really stressed out.
