    I have insomnia in past years! In my experienced the key factor why you experienced such things:

    1. You drink to much coffee which leads you hard to sleep.
    2. Watching too much horror movies.
    3. Thinking too much of unnecessary things.
    4. lack of exercise which sometimes also be true that your not tired, and the energy still not burned out.
    5. When going to sleep drink a cup of milk not pills.
    6. Relax your mind and breath deep.
    7. depression was cause.
    8. eat healthy foods.

    These are my advice I've done it in my own way and it works, and I am enjoying myself as of now. When I was a young boy, and I still struggling sleeping hard before. living in a healthy life leads into happy life.

    I can't really sleep at night because of insomnia. I tried everything that they asked me too but it doesn't worked for me. Until I found out that gadgets are one of the most common problem why I can't sleep. From that day, I'll make sure that one hour at least before I sleep, I refrain myself from any gadgets.

    According to guidelines from a physician group, insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, even when a person has the chance to do so. People with insomnia can feel dissatisfied with their sleep and usually experience one or more of the following symptoms: fatigue, low energy, difficulty concentrating, mood disturbances, and decreased performance in work or at school.

    Dealing with insomnia is not an easy task. Sometimes we experience it because of the food we eat like those food with high content of caffeine. Avoid activities in the evening that will hinder your sleep pattern. Try not to eat 3 hours before bedtime to avoid hyper acidity. Go to bed early, if you are planning to sleep at 9 o'clock, go to bed one hour a head. Take all the gadgets away from you so that your sleep pattern will not be disturbed. Drinking a glass of hot milk before bed time will also help you to feel sleepy.

    There are a lot of reason why we are suffering from insomnia. Me, personally, I experience that sleeping disorder when I was working as a callcenter agent. Our schedule are subject to change, it depends on the company needs. So as a result, our sleep time is changing too. If we are not consistent with the time that was suppose to be our sleeping time, then it will really affect your body clock and it will hard for you to get a good night sleep. What I did is I read books to make myself fall asleep.

    Insomnia can affect people of any age; it is more common on adult females than adult males. The sleeping disorder can undermine school and work performance, as well as contributing to obesity, anxiety, depression, irritability, concentration problems, memory problems, poor immune system function, and reduced reaction time. Insomnia has also been associated with a higher risk of developing chronic diseases. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 30-40 percent of American adults report that they have had symptoms of insomnia within the last 12 months, and 10-15 percent of adults claim to have chronic insomnia.

    There are a lot of factors causing insomnia it could be you drink coffee two hours before going to sleep, you ate too many sweets, still full from dinner or could be stress. My grandfather used to tell us when we were young to count the sheep from 1 to 100 seven times. It makes you sleepy counting. Lol. Some will do exercise and relax before sleeping. Some do meditation and it will relax your mind. Others will just drink milk to get them sleepy.

    Insomia? If you can't sleep at night you may wondering if you have insomia. Insomia is a sleep disorder that regularly affets many people worldwide. I think we can avoid this problems by changing our sleeping habits. Try to figure out why you are suffering this problems then you can avoid this. Maybe we are lack of exercise thats why we are sleep disorder. Or we should also lessen our coffee intake , it could be one reason because it contains caffeine which can enhance brain function. I'm not a doctor or specialist but base on my own experience coffee can make me hard to sleep at night. To maximize sleep benefits, lets try to exercise for atleast 30 minutes most days and watch what we eat and drink. I should say that diet can also play a role in how well we sleep so start to change our lifestyle. Some people take alternative sleeping pills just to help them get a healthy sleep. I think that is not adviceable unless it is natural and safe food supplement.

    Insomnia oh insomnia, how I learnt to actually get rid of my insomnia is weird but it worked for me, I have two methods to my madness, the one is to actually stay awake till late hours in the morning and wake up after a few hours and proceed with your day to the point where you actually so tired you sleep earlier and reset your sleep system, my second way is to actually meditate before bed, after 10 minutes I'm gone and wake up the next day with no battery life in my phone...damn you relaxing music.

    I used to have a normal sleep. Now I got insomnia. Well, it's not that serious but there were instances that I'm waking up in the middle of the night. Then I won't be able to sleep in the next five to six hours. In my own experience it can be short-term or it can last longer. I think it started when I saw a thief sneaking in the frontyard of our rented apartment unit. I called the community police that night but they we're too slow to respond. So he got away. Since then, my sleeping pattern changed. I don't want to be dependent on sleeping pills just to sleep so I just listen to soft music every night. And I think it works for me.

    Insomnia is a very common problem that takes a toll on your energy, mood, and ability to function during the day. Chronic insomnia can even contribute to serious health problems. But you don’t have to resign yourself to sleepless nights. By addressing the underlying causes and making simple changes to your daily habits and sleep environment—you can put a stop to the frustration of insomnia and finally get a good night’s sleep.

    I always struggle to get to sleep early! I think it's largely due to the fact I work long days and like to unwind my mind before jumping straight into bed! Although this isn't always a quick process!

    If you're really struggling to sleep I recommend doing some mindfulness - you can use it to guide your thoughts and relax you. Or try ASMR, there is plenty of videos on YouTube. It's basically a variety of sounds intended to relax you into sleep or reducing anxiety!

    I occasionally suffer from insomnia and boy is it rough. Usually I can break the cycle of insomnia by taking some Benadryl for a few night, and that usually straightens me back out.

    One of the most common health problems of modernity is insomnia—or, how it is also often called, sleep deprivation. Its prevalence is caused by the fact that it, firstly, accompanies a large number of mental conditions (starting from regular anxiety and/or frustration, and ending up with depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and so on), and secondly, by a number of environmental factors, such as noise pollution. Regardless of the reasons causing it, insomnia is a dangerous condition, being a cause of a wide range of health problems, both mental and physical.

    Get out of bed when you can't sleep. Don't try to force yourself to sleep. Tossing and turning only amps up the anxiety. Get up, leave the bedroom, and do something relaxing, such as reading, drinking a cup of herbal tea, or taking a bath.

    Insomnia can be very dangerous. When I don't get enough sleep, I feel like I may fall asleep in every moment of my day and it's a bit scary, isn't it? I don't think I would fall asleep while driving, but what if it happened? Some nights I managed to get just one hour of sleep and my attention level is terrible, not to mention the headache.

    The biggest mistake I make is to take my smartphone and start surfing when I can't sleep. When I'm laying in bed with my eyes wide shut, bad thoughts take over me and I need some kind of distraction, but in this way I basically end up not being able to sleep at all.
    Prescriptions usually work, but they have possible side effects. I prefer a drop of lavander essential oil on my pillow, it helps me relax, the smell is very good.

    I suffer from insomnia too. There are a lot of ways i do to beat this and be able to sleep at night, sometimes it's not effective but most of the time it is. I start with a nice hot shower then I drink a hot milk or chocolate then i listen to a soothing music while reading a boring book or I watch a very boring movie and to make it a little more relaxing I light up a scented candle or scented oil then in a few minutes it does wonders in a good night sleep. Try it for yourself and have yourself a good night sleep too.

    Insomnia is the inability to sleep so in order to get sleep, these are the tips to avoid insomnia and be able to get asleep:
    1. Don't think about your problems when in bed and avoid negative thoughts in life. This will make you unable to sleep because it bothers you a lot.
    2. Don't use gadgets or other devices when in bed. This makes you unable to sleep too because your focus is on the gadgets and lately, you realize that it is already morning because of using gadgets.
    3. Limit your naps because if you do, this will make you hard to get sleep because your body has already full of energy.
    4. The ambiance of your room must be comfortable when you are trying to sleep. This will help you to sleep well if your comfortable.
    5. Listen mellow musics or intrumental musics in order to get asleep. This will help you to fall asleep fast because your mind will be relax.

    Insomnia is now becoming a common problem to a lot of people. It is not a disease or mental conditions that needs treatment. It is just a manifestation that you are doing something wrong that disrupts your sleep and wake process. There are a lot of causes for insomnia such as drinking coffee at night, stress, distractions from mobile, etc. Try to have a regular sleeping pattern to condition your body by having a regular time of sleep. This way, your body's sleeping pattern will not be disrupted and you will be able to lessen the stress.

    Insomnia is the worst. The tossing and turning, the anxious glances over at the clock, the overwhelming feeling that every single person in the world is asleep except you.If all the conventional cures have failed you (serious question: does counting sheep actually work for anyone?), don't despair.

    If you’re fighting insomnia and would like to develop better snoozing habits, then don’t do these things in bed:

    1. Work/study
    Light reading is a good way to relax before sleeping, but studying for your exams, organizing your work files, and other intellectually and emotionally demanding tasks can result in poor quality sleep. Activities that need high concentration should never be brought to bed.

    2. Eat
    Breakfast in bed? No, thanks. The habit of eating in bed increases the chance of attracting pests like ants and cockroaches, thanks to the crumbs left behind by your favorite sandwich and packs of Cheetos. Unless you are willing to launder your sheets every three days, then keep the food away from the bed.

    3. Watch TV

    According to the sleep junkies, the habit of watching TV until you fall sleep could cause harm in the long run. TV emits light with a bluish hue that could lessen your body’s production of sleep hormone.

    4. Text
    Like TV, your favorite gadgets emit blue wavelengths of light that can meddle with your sleep cycle. Texting, mindlessly scrolling down your Facebook wall, and checking emails are actually distracting. Those little Instagram double-taps prevent us from drifting to sleep. Avoid the habit of keeping your phone under your pillow or anywhere near your bed. You don’t want to be distracted by notifications lighting up every hour when you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep.

    5. Cuddle with a pet
    It may be a cute idea to snuggle next to Fluffy in bed, but having pets in bed will only trigger a variety of sleep disturbances. You’ll have to deal with getting rid of pesky animal dander, increased allergy attacks, and bouts of insomnia, thanks to your pet’s endless squirming and kicking. You don’t have to kick your pet out of your room completely. Try giving him/her a comfy pet bed on the floor next to yours.

    If there is no underlying medical condition that is causing insomnia, better stick to a regular bedtime to get you into a routine and improve your sleep. Before hitting the sack, do something that helps you relax, such as deep breathing, reading or listening to music. Keep a sleep diary so you can determine things that may be interfering with your sleep and make the necessary adjustments. Make your bedroom a tech-free zone. Put away gadgets like your cell phone, laptop, and tablet. Caffeine is the top sleep stealer so avoid caffeine five hours before bedtime. If you have tried all self-help strategies and they have not worked then you should consult a doctor.
