eat til you feel sick…eatin too much always makes you feel sleepy.just think back to christmas!!lol
Look,i know the feeling of “i can’t shut down my mind and rest”,yet i’m very sure there are many times when you can’t keep your eyes open. You jst have to sleep when you’re tired.And if not sleep,at least keep the eyes close and think positive.I have pretty hard times now,too…i study for an anathomy contest ( 8 different manuals),i study for my driving licence ,i also have school and yet i find time for reading and even sleeping. You can call me a freak,but i sleep less than 4 hours,usually around 1-2 p.m

Lack of sleep is not funny, I can’t stay awake during the day and I get no REM sleep at night so I am not refreshed like regular people. Well, I’ve been told a number of things: don’t keep a tv in your bedroom, take a hot shower just before bed, but not much has worked so far. I’ve had two sleep studies and three MRIs this year along, and am going to see my next two specialists tomorrow, so I’ll keep you posted.
The only advice I can give you is try to create a bedtime ritual – a series of things you do prior to going to bed, this seems to help some. Another thing you can try to do is read something light for recreational purposes to get your brain off your thoughts and into something else. Then, when you start to feel sleepy, just go with it.
You might also try keeping the lights low at home after 7 or 8 to help your body get ready for sleep. Bright lights going all the time have caused sleeping problems for a lot of people. Change your bulbs to 15W or 30W.
I constantly struggle with the shutting my mind off. But, what I’ve found is soothing music or radio or tv will make me not focus on things that worry me and keep me up. Now there is a drawback to this because sometimes those type of things can keep you up, too…so be careful of what you do choose. Trying to wind down with relaxing activities before bed helps, too. The key is to create a routine. Set a time that you will go to bed no matter what, too. Mine is midnight usually nowadays. But I try to be in bed at 10 on weeknights and no later than midnight on weekends. Also increasing your exercise will automatically make you try to get more rest.
Do something totally pointless before trying to go to sleep, such as taking a bath/shower. Also, for me, reading a relaxing, funny realistic fiction book does the trick. Music (no matter how “soothing”) always perks me up, so if it has the same effect on you then don’t listen to it before going to bed. And like someone up there said, eating does make you really sleepy sometimes. Good luck!
I got three words for you: Getting Things Done. Get the book by that name. Read it, love it, become one with it. Here is the author’s website and there are tons of others devoted to GTD as well: http://www.davidco.com/
I think planning can help. When you just write all the thoughts, which are bothering you, on a piece of paper. And find quick solution for some problems. Like making fast priorities! Also listening to a nice stuff helps – there are lots of great audiobooks and podcasts nowadays.
