Thank you for that information. Blinking many times before bed can help. Breathing through the nose and out of the mouth 7 times is relaxing. For me meditation 10-15 minutes before sleep works all the time. Find ways to clear your mind of concerns and worries. Put them next to you on the bed side table, you can always grab them the next morning. Try this anyway.

I'm an insomniac and sleep 4-5 hours per day,usually from 3:00-4:00 to 7:00 or 8:00. I usually get 7-8 hours once or twice per week and all meds I've tried have failed.

My mind is like unchained monkeys...however tired I may be before getting into bed. Advice always seems to come from those who have no trouble sleeping.

The content was interesting but I wish you had expanded more on some of the categories, especially #2. There it was stated that a lack of sleep can lead to "serious health problems". What were the serious problems.

Sometimes real life issues don't afford us the luxury of a great night's sleep.
