Can't go back to sleep

  1. Mar 29, 2007 #1
    Been up since 2am, now it's slightly after 5.
    But found some time to do some homeworks.
    Working on matlab now.
    Anyone staying up late?
    what are you doing?

    It's only 10 PM here.... but I know the situation where you can't get to sleep. At least your putting the time to good use though, right?

    Not only do I have trouble falling asleep sometimes, but I have others keep me up.

    I live at home and my dad is always up late watching Opera or something on TV, with the volume cranked up!! It's so loud I can't get to sleep!

    Sigh, sometimes you can't win! Good luck getting to sleep!

    Can't go back to sleep. I have a class at 8.
    But not sleepy, actually don't feel tired, yet!
    I guess I'm going to have bad day today.

    Sometimes when you stay up for long enough you get a second wind, and your not tired for a while.

    Watch out though, tomorrow night, you may crash!!

    What can you do when you just can't sleep, I don't like taking anything to help me sleep at all, unless if it's really necessary, and doctor prescription(lately having trouble sleeping enough)..
    I finish class around 12 i think, got plenty of time after that to relax..

    Why not read a book in bed? Maybe some a little boring could help.

    browsing PF should help you sleep.

    When I can't get sleep, I usually log onto PF and hang around for an hour or so. Then, when I go to bed again, I usually fall asleep right away.

    Or, as someone above said, try reading something, this usually helps. Try doing anything that will get your mind focus off the fact that you can't fall asleep.

    It was too late for me to read anything to sleep, my class was to start in less then 3 hours.
    I feel so tired now.
    Guess I'll have to take a nap, although I hate that.

    Drink a calming tea or stiff some calming essential oils. Something similar to a vanilla drink.

    I find watching Cosmos (not the movie) very relaxing. The background music puts me to sleep every time.......:blushing:

    It was the full moon.

    I don't really believe that, but then again, I don't know why I often can't sleep when the moon is full. (I was up last night too).
