  • Thanks, really need these tips.
  • I'm going to try some of these suggestions Thanks!
  • I give up...I'm just going to have my wife whack the back of my head with a baseball bat to knock me out. I've tried everything else.
  • I have tried Melatonin before and it doesn't do anything for me. A lot of good tips in article.

  • We sometimes forget just how important sleep is. Allow your body to recharge, get enough sleep each evening.
  • Sleep is so important!!!
  • Never had any luck with any kind of sleep aid.
  • None of this works for me. I do not have trouble falling asleep but am plagued with strange and vivid dreams ALL NIGHT long that wake me several times a night and result in my waking in the morning exhausted. Unfortunately, both Valerian Root and Melatonin have vivid and strange dreams as a possible side effect so that is the LAST thing I need! I tried changing my workouts from evening to morning...no help. I stop eating two hours before bed...no help. I tried prescription meds...no help. Oddly enough, on days off if I take a nap in the late afternoon I am usually NOT plagued by these dreams My next step is a Sleep Center. If anyone out there has these symptoms and has found a way to beat it PLEASE let me know!

    Real good article. I like to have a whole grain Thomas' Muffin low fat toasted with natural peanut butter, or Skippy's 60% less sugar chocolate natural peanut butter with Smucker's No Sugar Boysenberry or Simply Fruit Strawberry jam as my "Nod Off" helper! :P
  • I watched an episode of the 'food hospital' on the cooking channel about a guy that used to wake up in the middle of the night and need to eat 'crisps' (chips), cakes and other high calorie foods- they called it 'night eating' or something. In the past, I used to eat at night to help me fall asleep and I have found that the same thing would happen- i'd wake up and want to eat to go back to sleep. BAD cycle! I think that cutting the lesser quality foods from my diet has really helped. I don't wake up in the middle of the night needing a banana, lol (which is usually what my night snack is)!
  • Great article. I have learn something about when you can't sleep what to do.

    This article comes at a very good time for me. I have never had trouble sleeping in my life until the last few months. I am going to take steps outlined here to see if I can get back to a better sleep pattern.
  • I'm going to try the Valerian Root
  • At the suggestion of his doctor, I use melatonin to help my son with Autism wind down to sleep. It worked wonders at first, but we've had to increase to dose and it's not working as well now.
    My own biggest sleep challenge is just getting myself to stop what I'm doing and go to bed! I like my alone time after the kids are asleep, but I pay for it the next day and in general with slower weight loss and increased pain from my fibromyalgia.
