Have a hot bath,(that just makes me sweat)hot milk, cool bedroom, or try reading. Many of the ideas I've given to insomniacs, they must be doing something wrong. It's not natural to have a busy day, go to bed exhausted to suddenly feel wide awake! Just put your head on your memory foam pillow (my advice again), close your eyes and you WILL go to sleep. It's easy for goodness sake, it's all in your head!
Ummm ok ok I was wrong, I'll admit it, I didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I'm big enough to admit I was wrong. Wrong like Mr wrong on national wrong day in Wrongsville! How do I know that? Because I'm an insomniac, yes, my names Michelle and I can't sleep at night! I know, I know, I had all the answers! Well, I thought I did and you know what thought did, (yeah, couldn't sleep because they were too busy thinking).
So I lay awake for hours, I've given up on the useless advice that I thought was pure genius. I now know that just putting your head on your pillow, (whichever type of pillow, cos it doesn't matter)isn't enough!
Insomnia is real, it's tough to live with but you live in hope that you'll just "get over it"
So next time someone tells you that they're having trouble sleeping, just listen to what they have to say, without trying to give advice when you don't really know anything about it.
Hot milk? Shuff it where the sun don't shine!!!
