I suggest you follow these tips for insomnia.

TRY THESE TIPS RELIGIOUSLY FOR AT LEAST
4-6 WEEKS BUT MANY HAVE SEEN RESULTS IN AS LITTLE AS TWO.

3 HOURS BEFORE BEDTIME, STAY AWAY FROM,
CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, CHOCOLATE, EXERCISE, CARAMEL COLORED SODA LIKE
COKE AND PEPSI AND GINGER ALE. ALL THESE MAKE FOR RESTLESS SLEEP.

30 MINUTES BEFORE BEDTIME TAKE A HOT
BATH. LATEST RESEARCH FROM JOHN HOPKINS IS THAT PUTTING THE HANDS
UNDER THE HOT WATER, PALMS UP, SENDS IMPULSES TO THE BRAIN THAT IT IS
TIME TO RELAX FOR SLEEP.

15 MINUTES BEFORE BEDTIME, DRINK A
GLASS OF WARM PLAIN MILK. MILK WHEN HEATED CONTAINS TRYPTOPHAN, A
NATUAL AMINO ACID SLEEP INDUCER.

WHEN YOU GET INTO THE BED TAKE A FEW
DEEP BREATHS, YOU ALSO CAN SET YOUR RADIO FOR SOFT MELLOW MUSIC
HOWEVER,PUT IT ON A TIMER FOR 20 MINUTES. DO NOT TWIST AND TURN FOR
MORE THAN 20 MINUTES. IF SO GET OUT OF BED,GO INTO ANOTHER ROOM AND
READ A BOOK OR MAGAZINE, NO TV OR COMPUTER. WHEN YOU START TO DOZE,
IMMEDIATELY GO BACK INTO THE BED. THIS RETRAINS THE BRAIN INTO
THINKING THAT THE BEDROOM IS FOR GOOD RECUPERATIVE SLEEP. DO THIS AS
MANY TIMES AS YOU AWAKEN THRU THE NITE. IT WILL LESSON AS THE WEEKS
GO ON.

IF AFTER 6 WEEKS, NO IMPROVEMENT IS
SEEN YOU SHOULD CALL YOUR LOCAL HOSPITAL AND ASK FOR THE NEAREST
SLEEP DISORDER UNIT TO HAVE YOUR SLEEP MONITORED.
