Can't sleep

What do you do when you could not get an eye shut at night? Or could not get back to sleep when you awake in middle of the night?

I been a light sleeper, have some trouble going back to sleep when I abruptly awake at night. Most of the times, I am able to go back to wleep after few minutes but lately I have some trouble in sleeping. Maybe some worries and concerns on certain stuff.

So, how do you put yourself back to sleep? What do you do?

Drink milk? I can't as I have milk intolerance.

Reading? I will be more alert once I start to read.

Watching tv? Nay, not fun watching alone.

Playing games? I quit few years ago.

Counting sheeps? I will wide-awake before I finish counting to 100!

For me, I drink! Yeap, wine. It works most of the times.

Just a few sip and I will feel light-headed and warmer to go to bed. I usually go with some chocolate bites with my wine. Okay, now you know why I gained weight lately. Due to late night's unhealthy snacking. *wink*

When I was pregnant, I got insomnia easily, but nothing much I did, just try to breath deeply and relax the mind, eventually can fall asleep.

Now that I am a mummy, I hardly got insomnia (touchwood!), in fact I sleep so well I wish for more!!! :p

Try warm milk and honey. Used to work on me. These days, I'd just get up...and browse online...and go back to sleep if sleepy again. Old retiree, all the time in the world do do anything I want. Hehehehehehe!!!!

Wine and chocolates to cure insomnia - that's very unique. I read blogs if I can't sleep.

Try some soothing tea like camomile which helps you to relax. Anyway, try to exercise in the evening if you have problems sleeping. Tired yourself and you will sleep well . If this prolong , try seeing a doc.
