So last night I wasn't feeling well so I went to bed at 9pm, which is about 2 hours earlier than I normally do. Well even though I was exhausted, I just couldn't fall asleep! I was tossing and turning alllllll night! Even when it got to my regular bed time, I still couldn't sleep! Not being able to sleep when I'm soooo flippin tired has got to be one of the most annoying things ever, next to having 5th graders roll their eyes at you and walk away saying "Oh my gossssssh."
I need to come up with some sleep remedies or something. I love how relaxing hot tea is, but even the decaf has some caffeine in it and keeps me up. I'm not really into the meditating...and usually when I read a book I stay up later than I should because I get really into it.
Any ideas?

it's all about routine and training. Do the same things in a row. Wash your face, brush your teeth, get in bed, check your alarm.

Also take a warm bath and you can read in the bath and then you must stop reading when you get out of the bath.

And Simply Sleep is GREAT! It's like a Tylenol PM without the meds. You won't be groggy or anything!
