How do you get to sleep?

Callisto Callisto
I'm seriously nervous about class tomorrow and it's taking a toll in the form of insomnia. I have to be up in 3 hours

How do you guys get to sleep when you feel you can't? I already tried to masturbate but that didn't tire me out, seems like it had the opposite effect.

I try tuning everything out and making mental to do lists in my head. Eventually if I go over the same things enough I tend to drift off.

Like Sam, I run through things in my head until I start to drift off. If that doesn't work, then I turn over onto my stomach and rub the top of my right over the bottom of my left foot and focus on breathing. It usually knocks me out. If those two don't work or if I think I'm going to have an exceptionally difficult time, I take an over-the-counter sleep aid; it's usually a store brand.

Even if you just lay down and close your eyes. You'll get some rest and be ready for class.

Try a 5 mg melatonin supplement - not addictive and very effective.

I'll ask my boyfriend to lightly rub my back. It's really soothing and always helps. If I'm desperate, I'll go for some herbal help.

I suffer from insomnia sometimes myself. The only thing that really helps me is to get up and do some deep meditation. Or I listen to a guided meditation. Those usually sort of calm my nerves and get into the right zone. Also, getting out of bed and going to another room and leaving the lights low sometimes helps. Or propping up and reading a book by flashlight. Just don't turn on the main lights. It sort of reactivates your body. They say though getting out of bed and doing something sort of relaxing works. And I know it does for me.

And yes! Someone mentioned Melatonin. It has really helped my partner and I.
