I do something relaxful before bed. I also take melatonin (herbal) before bed and that helps.

These types of questions may be best addressed in one of the other forums such as the panic board or staying motivated board.

That being said, sleep issues vary widely and if this is a problem you have been eperiencing for quite some time you may want to talk with your doctor and see if he/she has any suggestions.

SparkPeople has an Official Better Sleep Challenge SparkTeam that you may want to check out, as well. (see link below).

I hope this helps!

I don't know if this is the right forum for this problem. I often have problems getting to sleep and/or staying asleep. Funnily enough I'm usually refreshed in the morning, even if I've only slept about 3 hours. Spark people advise us to get plenty of sleep, and I try, but sometimes my brain runs round in circles, sometimes my dogs wake me up barking and won't stop, which annoys me and drives sleep away. Nor is having the bedroom the ideal temperature always an option. I do have a wall-heater/ fan which helps, but if the temperature is high 20s, or around 10 in winter, there's a limit to what the fan can do about it! Air conditioning is more expensive than I feel able to justify. So a good night's sleep is a blessing when it comes, but it often doesn't!
