What do you do when you can't sleep?

Go on the computer, watch TV, read a book?  Honestly, if I did any of those things it would have the OPPOSITE effect on me!  LOL  I would be more awake.  I would like to hear what you do when you can't sleep, as I've had insomnia all my life and at times it gets really bad.

Somtimes I read, sometimes I get the computer.  Most times I just lie there and watch tv until I actually do fall asleep (we have a tv in our bedroom).

I have to start my bedtime routine over. I'll read one chapter, adjust my blankets just so, and go to sleep. If that doesn't work, I'll surf for an hour, and try again. Once I give in to the tv, I can usually write off the rest of the night.

I do my best to just lay there listening to hubby sore and watching the ceiling fan going around and hope that I fall asleep soon.  Like you, if I get on the computer watch tv, or read it keeps me awake.

I get online, read a book, watch tv. And sip warm tea. And just wait till I get sleepy. Sometimes it takes hours and that sucks, but there's not much else I can do...I've dealt with insomnia (off and on) since I was a kid. Bleh!
