    so i usually can't sleep. i lay and toss and turn trying. counting sheep doesnt work. so far all i have found is getting expensive. drinking two monsters around 4 pm. anyone else know of a cheaper way?

    I can't imagine drinking two monsters around 4pm helps with your sleep. Usually what I do if I can't get to bed is focus on specific parts of my body with my mind and try to relax them and then move throughout my whole body until I'm relaxed... helps for me sometimes.

    I read a book, something difficult to read because it tires out my brain, sounds silly but it really helps. Either that or I watch a movie in a similar vein. Give it a shot, it's so draining that it'll usually send me to sleep within the hour.

    Also make sure your room is a comfortable place, it should look like somewhere you want to sleep in.

    Change your diet, it could be contributing significantly.
    Avoid the Monsters caffeine drinks = very bad.

    I find it hard to believe anyone would drink mega-energy high caffeine drinks late in the day because they want to sleep better at night.:dry:

    lol I imagine they drink energy drinks so they don't crash super hard cause they didn't get a lot of sleep, not to help them sleep better :D

    makes sense :biggrin:

    reminds me of what I did when I worked evening shift.But 2?One is enough..if it isn''s probably addiction to the high.I recommend a long walk for energy instead of the monsters.

    Try having a relaxing bath before sleep, and then read :)
