Insomnia Ideas

Can’t sleep? Well the first step is not to worry about not sleeping.

Here are a few ideas on dealing with insomnia

Here are some ideas to deal with insomnia

  • Get up and make yourself a cup of mint tea
  • Don’t drink any tea or coffee after 8.p.m.
  • Avoid alchohol – anything more than a glass and you tend to wake up in the middle of the night.
  • Get a night light light bulb (8w bulb won’t wake up your partner)
  • Personal radio by your bedside (ipod or an mp3 player will have the same effect)

Getting to sleep :

  • Read a book until you fall asleep
  • Don’t go to bed too early
  • Drink mint tea as a night cap
  • Tell yourself a story in your mind to get yourself to sleep. Eventually after a few nights you will fall asleep during the story. Afterwards you should only need to tell yourself this story and you should be able to get to sleep.
  • Counting sleep doesn’t seem to work.

Does anything else work for you? – simply add the ideas into the box below and we’ll see if we can publish it.

  2. i often have problems sleeping. usually because my mind is working overtime. I sleep on my left, so as a rule i always start on my right to think things through and hopefully clear my mind. once i’ve finnished i turn over to my sleeping side. not a bullet proof idea but often works.

  7. Insomnia (sleeplessness) is due to stress, dietary and medical problems. By making small lifestyle changes like having a fixed daily routine, relaxing and eating properly, insomnia can be cured. This should be taken into consideration rather than some temporary solutions;)
