  • I'm a list-maker/planner. If i'm laying in bed unable to doze of I plan things in my head, meals for the next couple weeks, kids birthday parties, to-do the next day, etc. I guess its my version of counting sheep!

  • I wake up my boyfriend, and have him talk to me until I can fall asleep. Sometimes he rubs my back, or brushes my hair :) He is so sweet. When he is out of town, I just lay there... try to make up some imaginary story in my head and that usually can help me fall asleep. Sometimes I have to take a xanax. they were prescribed to me for this problem, but I dont like taking them unless its like Finals week or something else and I really need the sleep. Maybe if you turned on a lamp, read a book, turned on some light smooth music like Jazz or Classical that would help?
