Just when you thought it was terrible to wake up too early, it is equally just as terrible to have trouble falling asleep.

You know the feeling. You lay down. You try to get comfortable. You toss and turn. You throw around your sheets. You get up to go to the bathroom. You lay back down. And you still can’t fall asleep.

I personally believe that most insomnia comes from a person worrying too much about something. And, a lot of the time, insomnia comes from worrying about not sleeping! Imagine that! If you worry too much about the fact that you’re not sleeping, it only makes it worse!

This is why you can't fall asleep!

I know from personal experience that it does. I didn’t need to read any article to tell you this. And once you read this, you’ll agree with me. You have a harder time falling asleep when you’re worrying about sleep.

Insomnia is frustrating. It happens to us at the worst of times, and for some reason, we can’t seem to beat it until we get so tired that we’re too tired to be stressed/frustrated anymore. That’s when we fall asleep. Unfortunately, at that point, its too late…because in 2 hours you’ll be waking up at 7:54, 6 minutes before you’re supposed to.

On that note, I would like to also point out that it is not necessary to depend on drugs to help you sleep. I’ve been there. I’ve done that. And personally, why bother? There are plenty of natural ways to help you sleep…and they do work.

Don't watch TV when you have insomnia. Not only does it make it worse, but NOTHING IS ON!

Check out this website. All of these seem to do the trick. Especially incorporating exercise into your day. Unfortunately, everybody except hardcore athletes hates to exercise. Including me. And maybe, just maybe, they hate it, too. Who knows?

I feel an exercise post in the near future. Don’t you?
