TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What do you do when you can’t sleep???

  • Drink a couple ice cold Bud Lights. It works for me every night. I'm a female 47 years old.
  • If I'm comfortable then I'll just say prayers til I fall asleep. OR if I'm sore (arthritis) I'll go sit in the lazy boy and play Candy Crush & Scrabble
  • I normally find myself shopping on Amazon, which always isn't the best idea at 2 a.m..
  • I usually sleep like I'm dead.. but if I do wake up, I go in my sons room and watch him sleep. It's so nice..i can be around him and he isn't farting on me or arguing with me or I watch Hulu!
  • #TQOTD I have a really hard time falling asleep. Normally if I can't sleep I end up trolling FB which I know is awful to do if you are trying to sleep. If i am desperate, i bust out the Nyquil to help me sleep. Lol
  • I pray, works every night!
  • TQOTD...Insomnia. Story of my frogging life. I lay here and analyze and think way too much about everything in life. Then I give up and online shop and browse from my phone

  • Surf city hypnosis apps. Puts me to sleep and i might eat healthy
  • I turn on friends roll on to my belly put both hands under my pillow make a circle with my legs and concentrate on my breathing
  • I hate when I can't sleep because then I turn the TV on and start watching the worst shows, such as horror themed shows/movies and it always makes my dreams whacked out. Like it did last night!
  • If I can't sleep I read. If that doesn't help I watch Netflix, which never helps. ‍♀️.
  • 100 mg tablet of Trazodone
  • #tqotd a change in venue usually works for me. If I've been tossing and turning in bed and can't fall asleep (or my husband is snoring) I'll move out to the couch. Usually works like a charm.

  • How I fall asleep, if my thoughts aren't stopping I stop and think about the number 0 and picture it. Works every time.

  • I start praying/ thinking about all the things I'm thankful for.... maybe this isn't so good since it makes me fall asleep, ..but it works!
  • When I can't sleep, I put in some earbuds and listen to Friends on Netflix. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE Friends but since I have seen every episode at least 6 times, I don't feel like I NEED to watch to find out what happens next and I can fall asleep
  • The other night I couldn't fall asleep I was very restless so I put my head where my feet were in my feet or my head was and I fell sleep I think it was just a change in position
  • Not being able to wake up is bad too....I just had a test for narcolepsy. I had to take a 20-30min nap every two hours five times & I fell asleep 4 out of the 5 times. I fight every morning to not fall asleep at my desk :-( I don't feel rested after I wake up from sleeping all night. GOOD sleep is so important! Hopefully I'll find out soon how to get it! Laugh often, Smile more!

  • I have difficulty falling asleep - I could probably write a book on tools to get you to sleep.
