Hey GMC'ers

Since I dont fall asleep I'm wondering what do you guys do if you dont fall asleep ?
Usually I do nothing than resting in the bed and try to fall asleep but right now I am too awake to fall asleep wink.gif

I already read a bit before I went to bed but there is no sign of fatigue sad.gif
Right now it is 01:10 o'clock (1:10 pm ^^) and I want to sleep because I need to be awake for the upcoming math test tomorrow (its not the math test that keeps me awake wink.gif)

Yeah I have real problems sleeping, think I'm an insomniac!
I usually get up and drink some warm milk, sometimes helps.

I know what I need to fall asleep... My history teacher biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
Even if you are in love with history, you wont find his lessons interessting. Nevertheless he is a very kind guy who can understand the pupil (in my opinion only a few teacher can)

I'm counting sheeps or old grandmothers. Or not ... I usually read some cartoons or something until I get tired, or else I'm just laying flat out and thinking until I'm falling asleep. Really not much to do about it.

If I can't sleep, I don't sleep wink.gif

Joking smile.gif You cannot force your body to rest, have to find a way to clear your mind and relax, everything is in our heads. smile.gif

But if you have to much energy, than maybe you should consider some physical exercises in the evening, and you'll sleep like a baby biggrin.gif

I either fall asleep with the tv on, or when it's off, I focus my mind on one thing (cant be sleep) and it works for me.

When I cant go to sleep and I know i need to (test or something next day) what I do is try to just clear all the thoughts from my head and listen to my breathing and really not let myself think. It s tricky at first but once you get good at it, it really works well, especially if im really restless

Yep, try and read while lying down. I have been sleeping good for a couple of weeks now. Every time I lay in bed, in 5 min im out for the night. 7-9 hrs of pure sleep. My sleeping pattern for the past 5 months was sleeping at 5 in the morning. It was a pain going to school because I have to wake up at 6. Imagine doing that and trying to concentrate in college. It was a nice afternoon sleep though.

I find switching over to Nickleoden and watching Spongebob is great for relaxing the mind and getting a good nights sleep tongue.gif laugh.gif
