If I don't want to take sleeping pills, sometimes I will take ibuprofin. It's a pain killer. Sometimes I might have a slight ache / pain / headache - not even really noticible, but enough to keep me awake or cause me to wake up sometime during the night, even if it seems subconscious. I notice that on the nights I do take it, I have a slightly more restful sleep.Health Question & Answer

One thing that I do is concentrate on my breathing. Here's what you do.
1).Breath in and in your mind say in.
2). Breath out and in your mind say out.
p.s. Do this slowly but not to slow or else you won't get enough oxygen in your system. Health Question & Answer

I agree that you should read a book, but not something exciting, like an adventure book. I would recommend something ... calmer, like a Jane Austen novel. You don't want to stimulate your mind while your trying to relax it, right.?Health Question & Answer
