I can never seem to fall asleep at night and get a good 8 hours rest, but am always very tired mid-day. I find it hard to get a good night's sleep. I tried the "make your room like a cave" thing, but I could not stop thinking (my mind was constantly going and I was up for HOURS until I caved and turned on the television). I notice that I need to watch a television show that distracts my mind and then I fall asleep, but then I get up too early.
It's always been an issue with me, but now that I am working 12 hour shifts per day, I need to really focus on my sleep. I also know sleep is very important with building muscle and losing fat.
To get an idea of my diet: I eat low carbs, more fat/protein.
Like I said, this has been going on for most of my life. I refuse to use sleeping drugs.
If you need more information about me, let me know.
Any tips/explanations will help me a lot.
