I'm Having a Hard Time Sleeping

I seem unable to fall asleep on most nights. I can lay there for 30 minutes to an hour and won’t fall asleep. Is there something I can do that will help me fall asleep?

I love Z-12. The stuff is great for getting me some good sleep.

for tonight you might want to try some warm milk, a warm bath, give yourself a foot massage

rub one out

Here’s some advice from the National Sleep Foundation. http://www.sleepfoundation.org/site/c.huIXKjM0IxF/b.2417141/k.C60C/Welcome.htm

  • Establish consistent sleep and wake schedules, even on weekends
  • Create a regular, relaxing bedtime routine such as soaking in a hot bath or listening to soothing music �?? begin an hour or more before the time you expect to fall asleep
  • Create a sleep-conducive environment that is dark, quiet, comfortable and cool
  • Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows
  • Use your bedroom only for sleep and sex (keep “sleep stealers” out of the bedroom �?? avoid watching TV, using a computer or reading in bed)
  • Finish eating at least 2-3 hours before your regular bedtime
  • Exercise regularly during the day or at least a few hours before bedtime
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol products close to bedtime and give up smoking

Hello.
This article will probably help alot.

Also i would also add magnesium 1000-2000mg at night to help you go to sleep.
My brother takes it 3 week on 1 off but he says it gives him weird dreams.

Hope you get some sleep soon.

While she’s asleep… ROFL!

Actually, on a semi (no pun intended) related note - someone next to you in bed helps. My GF says the sound of my breathing helps her fall asleep.

You didn’t even TRY to help me find a bigger bed that we could actually fit on.

I told you to go on the V-Diet.

But does it actually help you FALL asleep when you otherwise couldn’t? It definitely keeps me in a very deep sleep but I can take 3 pills during the day on an empty stomach and not much happens.

I knew you were trouble. My mother warned me about you.

Remember when your dad’s bikeshop went under and your parents told you that they had no money for your college education, so we ran off to get married and I took that mechanic’s job in Minneapolis?

Good times.

You mean 11:30 AM.

Seriously though, what have you been doing for all that time?

I get all warm and fuzzy thinking about those hours during the week becuase I’m fast asleep.

Well in abnormal land it 4:30
