I can never sleep it's kinda a problem-
On average I fall asleep between 12am-2am and I am very bored of this. I've stopped going on my phone before bed + reading instead or just sleep music or nothing but it hasn't workeddd
Any advice? :,)

I got insomnia fairly often while I was in university, although that was triggered by anxiety. I manage it much better now - exercise helps get out all my energy in the day, and I make myself eat better too. Do you take energy drinks, coffee, soft drinks, alcohol? Some soft drinks like Coke do have caffeine in them.

Try to go for a walk around 5-6pm, have a long bath with essential oils (lavender from https://volantaroma.se/ is my top for relaxation) and read a book or a magazine. Also some sports during the day has a positive effect on your sleep

Find a nice group outdoor or indoor exercise class. Fit in a longish walk too to a park etc each day. When it is not raining, a untimed walk outside in the fresh air can help. Sleeping pills may also make a huge amount of difference overall. Read some good recommended books or articles on healthy bodies and healthy minds as well. The NHS website has a ton more useful information on the topic so do try to start there. Additionally explore your other exercise class options carefully here.

See if your local leisure centre have a few group exercise classes you can attend and make sure to fully investigate other useful options like college exercise classes in addition. Or you can even aim to find out if there are qualified private fitness trainers online for personal hire and use on top of that. Additionally you can even join a private gym or use a fitness app.
