I think i might make another blog to put stuff like this when i have an urge to write about things unrelated to this blog. For now this is the only place for it now though

This is a pretty common problem for me. It started my first year of university, i have a hard time sleeping at normal times. My typical day goes like this

6am: wake up, feel like crap
6am - noon: feel like crap unless theres something big going on at work that demands alot of attention from me
noon - 4pm: feel alright
4pm - 7pm: get real tired again, sometimes nap but i try not to because it just makes it harder to sleep at a proper time again.
7pm - 10pm: generally feel fine
10pm - 3am: feel really awake and good

So i feel the best after 10pm, which makes it really hard to fall asleep at midnight like i ideally would every night. Tonight i originally went to bed at 12 30, gave up around 2 15. Its now closing in on 3 meaning best case scenario i get 3 hours sleep tonight. And despite getting only 3 hours sleep ill have the same problem tomorrow, although probably not as bad.

Anyone have any sleep aid ideas?

    Get plenty of exercise during the day, go to bed at the same time every night, don't have anything with caffeine in it after noon, and get the most comfortable mattress you can afford.

    Good Luck!

    I just read another blog that Valerian by Nature's Made was something to try. Was thinking about trying it myself as I have the same sleeping problems.
