Be aware that these type of things usually happens to adults. NOtice how infants and children get to sleep faster.? But adults and teenagers take ages to go sleep.?

It is quite normal for it to happen to all of us. I mean it happens to me plenty of times and it irritating especially if school is tomorrow.

Here are a few ways

-Change your sleeping time for one day. Sleep really late and then the next night after that you should feel really tired and need to go back to sleep. Not recommened for school nights. And then the cycle goes on without you sleeping late. Get the pictur.?

-Get more exercise. During the day if you do more sports and exercise your body will get more worn out and you will fall asleep faster. It is a win win situation because exercise give you endorphans which make you happy, make you stay fit and solves your problem of not sleeping.

-Read before you go to bed. Makes your eyes tired

-also, clear your head, don't think about things that are going to stay in mind. keep your mind blank so that you wil fall asleep easier.

-Change your diet. I think this helps. Keep your body healthy.

Thats all i can think of for nows. Take care!Health Question & Answer

a reason why you might not be able to fall asleep is because you're a teenager. teenager's internal clocks are set later at night than children's or adults. what you can do to help it is to eat a low sugar cereal before you go to bed. this snack has little protein and high calcium which will help you go to sleep. you shouldn't exercise or eat a meal at least 3 hours before going to bed. also, make sure that your homework is done at least an hour before you go to bed. if it takes you longer than 15 minutes to fall asleep, start to read, draw, write, anything that doesn't require a lot of energy.Health Question & Answer
