Hi. What should I do if I have insomnia? I'm waking up in the middle of the night and can't sleep. Have you ever faced with insomnia? :roll:

Yes, when I was in highschool and was preparing for university entrance examination but it lasted for a short time because I realized it's terrible for health, therefore, I force myself to follow a routine.

Most of people who suffer from insomnia use sleeping pills. Have you used them? I hope you haven't used much.

During the day, except a nap, don't sleep too much. The most important thing is you shouldn't stay up late day by day, and don't make your mind stressful. Because they really cause bad effects on your insomnia.
Some suggestions for you to adapt sleeping earlier habit: in the evening, before you go to bed, let's take a warm shower; after that, drink a glass of warm milk; then, read book or listen to gentle melodies till you feel asleep.
Good luck :D

How about doing some exercise in the evening so that you'll get tired at night?

Yes, but only when I have a big problem and I can't find a solution.... Maybe you are in that situation. If that so, you need to find one, otherwise you will keep awaking in the middle of the night.....

Perhaps you should become a musician, Xkalibur. They are always awake in the middle of the night and for them it is OK! I have been known to stay up all night writing and recording songs till 5am for days in a row. I have to sleep during the day though.

looking up in my books about hay diet (is it the right definition of a diet when you eat fats, proteins and carbohydrates separately :?: ) I remembered of you, Xkalibur... there was a tip against insomnia - beet-root juice mixed half with honey - they say it helps

I wonder will you bother with the cooking? :D

I got insomnia too, and sometimes once in a while... I agree with both diet and exercise solutions... maybe you're eating too much sugar and not releasing that energy properly. Or maybe you're not finishing something, I dunno, but you should try eating right and doing sports, also un-stressing yourself or the juice solution...
