  • I know it sounds weird but making love and haveing an orgasm always helps me sleep. Dont know if that helps you at all, but its a thought

  • Turn the tv on to something that boeres you and throw the remote across the room, if you are like me you will be too lazy to go pick it up and then lay there and fall asleep cause you are bored of whatever is on. It works for me LOL

  • Chamomile tea helps, and if it is a scrip pill for sleep from the doctor I think you can get some of them in liquid form.

  • Make a nighttime routine for yourself. Take a long bath (if possible) and get dressed in some low light. Maybe read a book. Pump your self up for bedtime. If after a few weeks of not being able to sleep on your own, call your doctor, and see what they suggest. They may suggest herbal supplements. Good Luck. Not getting any sleep sucks!

  • Couple options I can think of

    Sleepy Time Herbal Tea- it never really worked for me personally because it wasn't quite strong enough BUT my mother in law swears by it.

    And I know you don't want to take any pills but during my pregnancy my husband and I both suffered from restless leg syndrome just because of anxiety and I found all natural homeopathic tablets called Hyland's Resful Legs and they helped SO much.

  • try taking a warm bath before bed with camomile.... also remember to keep your bed for sleep and sex only... dont read or watch tv in bed, by only using it for sleep and sex, your body will adapt itself to using it only for what it is for... also if you take a nap at all during the day for a pick-me-up nap in your bed, not elsewhere in your house..
