Why can't I sleep?
I need to vent because the past 12 Thursday nights I got a job as a security guard from 5AM-630PM on Friday. So for whatever reason, my mind decides that I should stay awake when I need to sleep. So I tried going to bed even earlier, not drinking soda or sugar content, mediatation before bed, warm milk. I start to sweat, I swear I develop perfect senses when I'm trying to sleep. I can hear footsteps, a cough, a random beep, doors shutting. Its crazy, I can notice my heart beating, random sounds in my mouth when my jaw moves. I also start to develop the habit of swallowing non stop. But this is not beneficial, since I need the sleep to stay awake, and because I body build. Its also funny because on any other days that I don't have to wake up early, I become tired early. How can I fix this anxiety? I usually get these sort of things from Christmas eve, bday, a big event, first job/school ect. But this is just getting ridiculous. Well I'm off to try again, and sleep hopefully! :cool:
You need to shut your mind off? difficult I know
The easiest way I find to do this is thinking of something physically pleasing like sex or using nostalgic stimulus
Maybe you can try supplements such as Melatonin. I find that Melatonin can really help me sleep.
There is also this calcium pills but I forgot its name. It claims to help people sleep too.
And another thing you can try is by using binaural beats that can be found free in the iTunes or just google for free binaural beats that can help you sleep.
One thing that works for me though is to watch movie by lying down. I get really sleepy and I find that my the TV is still on when I am awake tomorrow :D
Same day, I needed to sleep. Fell asleep for an hour and a half and feel happy that I did. I feel like I accomplished something. Heading back to sleep, but feel confident at least. But I keep telling myself that I survived last week with 1 hour of sleep on my job, and that was a crazy achievement.
