insomnia and relief from sleeplessness

Regular exercise such as walking cycling jogging or swimming helps try exercise in the morning or afternoon not late.  Don't drink alcohol it can make you feel drowsy and may actually put you to sleep it has the unpleasant side effect of waking you later in the middle of the night.
 Sleep may elude you if your pet is too hard work to solve or if pillows are just right perhaps the most important rule for people with insomnia is to keep a strict sleep wake schedule a hotbed taken 2 hours before bedtime is a wonderful way to make your body relax the best sleep is in a dark quiet comfortable and cool room.
 Drink warm milk before bed but you may need to urinate avoid all liquids for a few hours before bedtime. Finish eating two or three hours before bedtime. Most prescription sleeping pills should not be used for more than a month.  They should also not be used for insomnia at high altitudes because taking sleeping pills at high altitudes may slow your breathing rate.
 Never take sleeping pills with certain drugs such as those for asthma which may cause insomnia check with your Dr. If you suspect that one of your medications is causing insomnia check with your doctor. The important thing is to give everything a fair trial and see what works best. Keep a notebook of what works and what doesn't it can help you identify factors interfering with your sleep and will provide help for home remedies.
