I feel like that's a reasonable worry.

I usually only drink it if I feel like a walking corpse and have to work which ends up being once or twice a week which is more than I'd like but seems to be a lot better than most. The only non alcoholic drinks I really consume are water and Orange juice

Thanks for all the advice. The fan and the shower seem to help a little. I might try mediating over the weekend but I might wait til during the week when I feel better because I heard it's easier than.

I'd like to second a fan and suggest low classical music... Some "white noise"...That really helps me when there are unexpected noises around, and when I was working swings.

Black out shades, or a towel pinned around the window went far as well... Although was a tad confusing/disorienting at first.

The meditation advice is also good...And I'd like to add YouTube some guided meditations, With emphasis on progressive body relaxation.

It will get you in an understanding of meditation-mind, and maybe help with the feelings/pressure of having to "do it right", on top of hoping for a result of sleep.

You have to find a voice and background you like...
I scanned a few and this one isn't too bad.
Nature instead of spa sounds, haha.
30 mins will fly by.

Good luck.



And here is a long 8 hour video of relaxing sounds that I really enjoy when I'm in a pinch for sleep. I used this a lot this winter when sleeping and rising unpredictably doing snow removal , and was sleeping all sorts of messed up hours.

Same here regarding fans. The fans I speak of are humming throughout the nite in my grow room, which is in a walk in closet in my bedroom. I've been growing for 13 years and always run the lites at nite for heat purposes. I don't think I could sleep without those fans making that familiar noise.

Worked at a place with 700 shift workers on rotating day and night shifts for several years. We had sleep seminars on how to avoid jet lag...here's some of their points
Follow a routine before bed as it triggers the brain to start it's sleep cycle.TV should not be part of the routine in the last hour.
a cool/warm shower helps lower body temp. and helps to calm the body and brain.
Reading manuals or instruction books is better at helping you relax than an exciting novel or book that makes you think/dream.
White noise (Fan) keeps the body from becoming alert to strange sounds which may trigger adrenaline flight or fight responses.
Melatonin is a natural chemical the body produces to induce sleep and can be bought in pill form....light destroys melatonin and causes you to awake in the morning...therefore absolute darkness is best...and ejaculation releases hormones which make you sleepy so a good non energetic release of pent up sperm helps relax and soothe the body and mind.
Combine all of this and sleep like a baby

I wake up early, work 10 hours, eat, get high, have a few drinks and I sleep like a baby as soon as I lay my head down.... Even if I'm off work I still get up early and keep active all day, I have zero issues sleeping.

i find that if i keep a very tight sleep schedule things are beautiful. Go to sleep every night at the same time if possible. After about two weeks of that it will become second nature and your sleep will improve.

Also try to only use your bed for when you sleep. That way subconsciously you will start to associate your bed with sleep. That way when u hit the bed at night your brain and body will both agree its time for sleep.

Also keep your bedroom night and dark and quit playing with screens of any sorts before the sleep is attempted.

sweet dreams all
