    I usually find I cant sleep because I have something on my mind. Whether conciously or not I am worrying about something, planning something etc. I find the best way to switch off my mind is to listen to talk radio, an audio book or something, just in the background so you can half concentrate on that as you drift off.
    I also find the worst thing when you cant sleep is getting stressed about it, I wake up in the night, then get annoyed as I watch the clock spin nearer to the alarm and the more annoyed I get, the less chance I have to sleep. Maybe have a bath pre bed, put on the radio and hopefully drift off. xx

    What about a self hypnosis cd? I find them very relaxing. The one I have is DeeperSleep by Andrew Johnson, you can get it as a CD or an app for your phone. Always relaxes me and helps me sleep

    Omg this sums up my life haha.

    Im an awful sleeper, since around xmas time i split up with my bf and was very stress. I didnt sleep well at all and was waking up sweating whether hot or cold and would wake up at 3am every morning and couldnt get back to sleep.

    It settled down a little after a few weeks but its never gone back to normal, i tried calms sleep tablets, and some other ones from the health shop and i find they don't really work for me. I still to this day wake up at 3am but normally go back to sleep. There is nothing worse than having issues with your sleeping pattern.
