    I would like to make an official thread for those who have insomnia or simply just can't sleep, maybe it's too cold, got things on your mind, or too busy on tsr Talk to us !! We're here for you
    I am replying with some hopefully helpful advice for all those night owls!
    - Don't use electrical devices before bed (Turn of an hour before you plan to sleep)
    - Set an alarm for the morning
    - Avoid caffeine and sugar
    - Have green tea, milk or a tea before bed (Careful with the sugar in the tea)
    - Dont have your main meal too late
    - Try relaxation breathing such as closing your eyes and breathing in 4 and out 8
    - Ensure you feel clean so you're not focussing on something you have to do in the morning (A warm shower before bed can really help)
    - Try this medication called kahlms for night time (Most drug stores sell it)
    - Don't try and sleep on a negative thought or an argument, before bed think of at least one positive thing before you sleep and something you are privileged for
    - Make sure your sheets are always clean and you have a made bed to get into
    - DO NOT SLEEP WITH SOCKS ITS STRESSFUL

    Happy sleeping and goodluck <3

    hey summer welcome to the club ! Yeah I've tried most of these methods and nothing seems too work :/
    But since I'm starting work on Monday I'm just gonna exercise before I go bed and not drink any caffeinated drinks before 6pm. Thank you for the advice !

    That moment when I'm doing both, because watching Masterchef isn't the same as being with friends
