Hrglauk Posted September 23, 2010 Report Share Posted September 23, 2010 Yes, our old friend, insomnia. I've recently started college and found it quite difficult to get to sleep on some nights, especially on the nights where I really need to (and I know why too.)So far, the only successful solutions I've found for these stressful nights is a 4 oz dose of Robitussin and cooling the room down to almost freezing temperatures, which have proven to increase comfort under the blankets and thus, induce drowsiness. Also, just letting my mind wander helps as well, because that's what the brain tends to do just before sleep... but usually when I find my brain successfully getting to sleep, I get excited, and am right back at base 1. I'm also plenty active.Does anyone know anything else that might help? I don't really like taking Robitussin as... well... taking any unnecessary medications is usually not advised. It's not the point where I'd need a sleeping pill to help me along, as those work for days on end. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions to sleep when you're far too tired to fall asleep?
