Trouble Sleeping?

What do you do when you have trouble sleeping? Any special techniques for counting sheep or secret family recipes for warm milk? Ha, Ha, Ha. Very funny prompt! It's 1 am and here I am trying to do my blogging. Sleep, what's that? Just joking. When I can't sleep I find myself on my computer. Either I am scrapbooking, blogging or checking e-mails, downloading files and coding them. However, when I finally do lay down and I am still tossing and turning I will pick up a book which tends to make me sleepy and I start to close my eyes. I also have learned if I can clear my mind of everything. Like make it blank I will fall asleep. Reason I toss and turn is my mind is still going. Thinking of what I have to still do. Maybe it's not stuff I have to do right now but things I have to do during the week or next week or whatever.

Yes I find that clearing my mind is the best way to get to sleep too. Unfortunately it's not always so easy to do.

I sympathise. I've had quite a few nights like you've described here.

Sometimes it is SO hard to 'turn your brain off', isn't it? I know that I have that problem too!

I wish I could make my mind blank but every time I try, racing thoughts go around and around.
