In this ridiculously hot weather, I know you're not alone! I hope things improve once cooler weather arrives.

If they don't, this is probably something you should discuss with your doctor.

I often read a really boring book OR I start looking through my crochet and knitting patterns (which aren't for boring projects at all). My mind starts trying to figure things out and all of a sudden I'm sleepy.

I used to have this great college book from my historical geology class. I could read about a page of it, toss it over the side of the bed, and be out like a light.

Are you exercising too late or have you messed up your schedule lately? Both can cause insomnia!

I fell asleep right after I got off the computer into my bed, started to study and I was out like a light!

For future reference: warm milk, a cool shower before bed (in hot weather - hot in cold weather) dim the lights and limit time looking at the TV/computer screen are all clinically proven to promote sleep. Especially the TV/computer because light levels influence the brain's internal clock.

I would not resort to medication(s) unless it is for only a very short period of time. Generally, even with the newer prescription medications, they leave a 'hangover' of sorts. I have finally come to the realization for myself being on the computer shortly before bedtime will certainly interfere with my falling asleep - something I also have problems with. After reading SDK's post I now know this was not all in my head about sleep issues. I knit as a rule in the evening so am in a quiet and relaxed mode (well, unless I have made a major mistake) and sleep comes more easily. Good luck, 'cause I know personally sleeplessness is a real bummer.

I have the most random solution that works for me. Listen to the Magical Mystery Tour album by the Beatles and i just drift off!

I've been exercising a lot lately which makes it much easier for me to fall asleep. When that doesn't work, I take benadryl :)
