    • Lavender is an herb that can help you relax. I get some lavender Epsom salts and occasionally take a bath in. The reason I say occasionally is because sometimes it works too well and I fall asleep in the tub! You can actually buy some to make tea with (be careful of how much you use it can make you feel as if you’ve been poisoned) which may relax you enough to sleep soundly. I sometimes wake up after 5 hours of sleep and then have difficulty returning to sleep. I get up, grab a glass of water, turn off whatever’s distracting me like the tv, any lights and put on some relaxing music.

    • Go get you some 3mg Melantonin at your local pharmacy...or TArget, Wal-mart..any drugstore that sells vitamins, etc.  

      It is natural and promotes sleep.
      I bought me some and it does help.  

      Take a hot bath, soak in it’s some Epsom salt...it’s a great de-toxifer...and like Kyah said...the lavender helps you relax.  Then...GET IN THE BED...no tv....if you don’t go to sleep in an hour...get up...do something around the house for about an hour...then..go get back in the bed.  Keep doing this and eventually it will take.  I read this somewhere about tips to help you get back on good sleeping patterns.  

      And watch what you eat at night...no late night eating...and drinking....

      Hot tea...I think helps.
      And then...try to go to bed the same time every night...eventually it will take.  10:00 is a great bedtime.

    • LOL Crisastbury4....you are too funny!  I didn’t mean to sound like I was mothering...LOL....but I guess I was.  

      I’ve struggle with getting my sleeping patterns being off too.  For many years.  So I know what you‘re going through.  As of lately I’ve been having a hard time going to sleep at night...so I have to make myself go to bed earlier and do whatever it takes to make me stay there most of the night.  It’s not a great way to be but you know that.  

      But taking that Melatonin has helped.  A friend of mine told me about it and her pediatrician told her to give her young kids the Melatonin 1mg to them every night.  It’s natural and it helps them get a great night sleep and she says they do.

      So I bought some for myself.  I know that when I get a good night’s sleep...I feel so much better the next day!
      Best of luck.... happy
