Try slowly breathing. It is possible to lull yourself to sleep just by slowly breathing and paying attention to each breath. Don't try to shut out other thoughts, just acknowledge them when they come and then focus back on to your breathing. With each breath slowly sink into slumber. This helps calm an active mind that is unwilling to settle down even for a second. Relax your body a bit with each breath.

Might also help if you excercise a bit during the day. Supposedly the afternoon is the best time to get a workout so that you can easily sleep at night.

Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
Is when I search for the light
Pick up my pen and start to write
I struggle, fight dark forces
In the clear moon light
Without fear... insomnia
I can't get no sleep

I used to worry, thought I was goin' mad in a hurry
Gettin' stress, makin' excess mess in darkness
No electricity, something's all over me, greasy
Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
Makin' mad love to my girl on the heath
Tearin' off tights with my teeth
But there's no release, no peace
I toss and turn without cease
Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast
At least a couple of weeks
Since I last slept, kept takin' sleepers
But now I keep myself pepped
Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
So when it's black this insomniac take an original tack
Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack
I gets no sleep
I can't get no sleep

I've been having trouble sleeping too. And i"m not sure if it's me or the internet. I end up getting tired in the afternoon and maybe having a nap, but lately I can't fall asleep at night. I like spending time reading news/blogs, ebay, and most of all youtube. I have a channel there and maybe you'll get an idea of what I like to do when I stay up all night: Oh, and sleeping pills work. Just not a very good everyday solution.

I also have a lot of trouble sleeping, it sucks because I end up going to sleep at 1AM and waking up at 6:30AM for school so I only get about 5 hours of sleep which is barely enough but I get tired throughout the day. What I've found that works for me is close your eyes with the lights off and everything and just think of something in your life or create a story eventually you'll start to get into hypnagogic state with auditory hallucinations which get you even more into what you were thinking about and soon you'll forget you were trying to go to sleep.

There's no such thing as insomnia. If you can't sleep, get up and go do stuff. When you feel tired, go back to bed and you'll sleep. If not, repeat. Works every time.

That's what I do, I just go to bed when I'm tired, and if I can't sleep it catches up with you eventually. Of course if you work fixed hours that's not so good, and maybe that's not the best idea for everyone (I mean if you can never sleep even if you're tired or something that won't help).

You can become dependent on sleeping pills and that could make things worse in the long run, I wouldn't recommend them.

>>11 i tried doing that but the more i think of things the more i cant sleep and i have the same problem as you. could it be stress?! i have been having huge stress for the past week

15 Name: Anonymous : 2007-04-30 11:09 ID:Jd2/xSGE

yeah could be stress, im very stressed atm and when i go to bed its like my mind goes into overdrive thinking about what im going to do about my problems. that then causes my heart rate to rise etc and to get a bit fidgety.

16 Name: 映画男 : 2007-04-30 12:59 ID:CJKh2Rju

fap till you're tired.

Use calm music, or "Ambiant" (ie Oöphoi), or Nature Sounds (some tracks are quite lenghty of rainforests, shores & such that are really calming).

17 says it the harsh way, but yeah, masturbating right before going to bed can help to sleep (it's a question of hormones).

A hot shower/bath can help too, as it makes tension drop quite a bit.

Is there anything on your mind? something you saw? or a really amazing fantasy, that thinking about it makes you not want to sleep and never forget? or are you online until 2-4AM? thats all I can think of right now.

20 Name: 映画男 : 2007-05-21 13:08 ID:hryGQNrz

hmm i use to be online till 2AM but not anymore, i think i was stressed from school and some stuff that was happening before, i figured i should try not to think when i sleep cos the more i think, the more i cant sleep.

Agreed, nothing beats it, that and steady, slow, deep breathing.

read before you go to bed, turn the computer off at least an hour before you sleep. Case closed

it sounds to me you probably fucked up your sleeping schedule. I had that happen to me often whenever I'm not attending school, I tend to have late night gaming sessions and internet surfing.

I suggest buy some sleeping pill.. if the direction tells you to take 2.. take 1.. if it tells you to take 1 take half.

take a hour before you want to sleep to get the medication started.. I usually take it at 12 AM and fall asleep around 1 AM, then wake up refreshed at 8 or 9.

After a week my sleeping schedule will be set and I no longer need to pills...

and yes masturbation works just as well.

Hot, cosy showers/baths tend to be good. Especially if you put some chamomile into the bathwater.

couple of drops of lavender oil on your pillowcase may help.

smoke a lil bud

that'll put you out after about a half hour or so, as long as you're laying/sitting down.

Those "nature" tracks are rediculous.

Who can relax while listening to a gorilla beat off into rainforest bushes? I don't understand how anyone can feel calm listening to that garbage. Unless you live in a rainforest, it's unlikely that you'd feel "at home" listening to it.
