Trouble Sleeping

I have had trouble sleeping the last few weeks. Short of seeing a doctor I was wondering if you guys had any tips or suggestions that can help me get some shut eye.


P.S. Over the counter sleep aids just wind me up for some reason.


Thanks in advance and I will be up all hours of the night to check thread so feel free to reply anytime........just kiddin'

Hmm, first thing to consider is did anything change in your life over the past few weeks, stress, life changing event, etc.

Outside of getting hammered, the 2 things that have worked for me are reading in bed and not using the bedroom for anything but sleeping (go ahead, make your own joke). The more you use the bedroom as a hangout, the more your mind thinks that you're there to have fun. My theory anyway.

Weather changes always screw me up too especially as the seasons turn. With our recent cold snap (43 degrees this morning) I wake up in sweats with the windows closed and then wake up a while later freezing my A off.

Good luck.

Take a big shot of Nyquil on an empty stomach and see if that does the trick.

NyQuil isn't the same as it was back 10 years ago. I remember having the very RARE weekend off from my two jobs as a kid. I'd pick up a bottle, grab a cheesesteak and fries, eat, NyQuil and sleep for damn near a day!
Sleep (good restful sleep)for me was rare back then!!
I had the flu last December, took a dose...didn't even help me sleep let alone any symptom relief. Hadn't had the stuff in 15 years. Must of changed the strength.

If I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep I eat a hunk of cheese and a drink a glass of milk while watching TV. It is probably the booring TV that puts me back to sleep.

Whatever you do don't turn on any iPhone iPads laptops etc.
Get some exercise everyday. Even walking is great. If you haven't done any for ages, plan on only a mile the first 4-5 days then at the weekend double that distance and keep it up during the week second weekend move to three miles. A mile every 15 mins is your target.

My sister-in-law is a nutritionist and dietitian.

I had the same kind of questions for her a few months ago.

My problem ended up being that I was vitamin D3 deficient (like most of America).

Plus she has me taking a few other supplements as well along with exercise almost every day of 10,000+ steps. I use Google Fit to track my steps on my old Samsung S5.

Here is the supplement plan -
Morning - Vitamin D3, 4000iu
Multivitamin
Fish Oil

Caffeine Cut Off At Noon - No exceptions

Evening - Magnesium (natural muscle relaxant)

The vitamin D3 has made the biggest difference for me. I don't feel so groggy and lethargic during the day any more.

Good luck.

Hey Paul, a little to add to your awesome vitamin mix!! My 16 yr old Autistic son (2 days = 8 hours of sleep!), is doing incredible on D3 (4 months now). Ask your sister about adding Vitamin K2 to your D3 mix. It’s reported that D3 is really great but has the side effect for some of making your calcium not go to the right places properly. Less calcium to teeth and bones and more calcium accumulated as artery plaque. I’ve read that it is only a problem for long time users (and who wouldn’t be a longtime user if it works as well as it does!?). Also increasing you calcium and zinc is a good one. It’s like adding a turbo charger to you engine. More fuel burned needs more air creates more heat. Always looking to create that perfect balanced mix. I started by giving my son Magnesium at night...won’t do that again! He’s a morning Mag person It rev’s him up to crazy levels (you have a normal nervous system his is jacked!!!) Vitamin B6 and B3 (Niacin) is doing amazing things for my boy(despite the Niacin “Flush”). I’d recommend B6 to anybody who would like a vitamin that gives you clear focus instead of coffee or OTC drugs. I don’t get that afternoon drop anymore. Hope I added to your post. Good info! Thanks
