    I do drink a lot of tea.

    But the last thing i want are some needles up my ass to put me to sleep.
    ps - there are no accupuncturists here that are famous.
    try Saps hypnosis, or a non famous accupuncturist.

    Trust me the needles dont' hurt and it has an amazing impact on you....

    Try clearnign your mind, it's the key to good sleep.

    Another way is to start at one end of the body and work you way up/down clenching and relaxing muscle groups... reallly does work at making you feel sleepy

    true.
    it should be noted that i practice yoga every morning and also vipassana (a type of meditation) throughout the day.

    maybe, it's because i am relaxed a bit more a lot more than i used to be that my sleep requirement has gone down.

    meaning - the more tired you are the sleepier you would feel and vise versa.

    ^

    It could be my EGO speaking.
    so try not to applaud my assumptions till i come to a correct conclusion.

    yoga is calming, but it doesn't nessesarily equat to clearing your mind an hour or two before going to bed.... try closing down thinking about your day and think of nicer things....

    Yeah, I could do that.

    works better sometimes.

    Dude, you need some melatonin. Pronto. I think you definitely have insomnia if you average less than 6 hours per night of sleep. Aside from doing that on rare occasions when you have to, that isn't healthy or normal.

    pretty much anything you take at night will keep you drowsy in the morning.



    Lift weights. Helps regulate circadian rhythms.

    :C
    But the good news is the next day I slept for 8 hours. Meaning the 3 hours I missed + the 5.30 hours I usually sleep.

    Thanks guys, thank you so much for the replies.
    I think it was all those cakes I ate that day.
    Kept me awake till 3 a.m.
    Got late to go to work. Good thing I know how to make things sound big, because they actually (my immediate boss) advised me to have a little nap before starting to work again.
    Anyway like I said before I managed to sleep 8 hours the next day.

    But on that particular day I couldn't sleep I used -

    "the old boys hostel method."

    or "the Prison boys method"

    or "the army barracks method"

    Get the picture anyone?
