The warm bath, peppermint and camomile tea (double dose if I'm feeling a bit 'up') and reading something fairly soothing by a bad light tends to work for me. I often find it hard to sleep if I have coffee, regular tea or coke after midday. You may find it is hard if you have these after midnight?

Just give up trying to sleep normally after nights. Sleep what you can when you get home from work and try and get a few hours early evening before you go to work. Not the same as a full nights sleep but those few hours kip will help you get through a nightshift. If there was a one fix cures all for everyone you would have heard about it before now. You have my sympathy as a fellow nightshift worker.

I am weird. If I cannot sleep a cup of coffee does the trick. I put it down to years of night shift. I used to have a coffee to keep me awake to drive home. Then went straight to bed. Am sure my system now thinks that is the way things should be.

I used to suffer from a seriously awful inability to relax in my younger years. I'd regularly lie awake to 2 or 3 am.

I was later taught breathing/relaxation techniques for use in rifle shooting and one night decided [sheer luck] to apply it and see if it could help. To my delight [next morning] I was asleep in very short order and continue to do the same every night since. It never takes me longer to get to sleep than 10-15 seconds once I've decided to do so [no matter what time of day or night].

Forget about trying to sleep - that only makes the problem worse. Consider relaxation as the way forward and the sleep will naturally come.

There's also an element of confidence about it. Once you know such a method works then failure to sleep isn't a problem.

Looks like everyone has taken the tips posted here, and all have fallen to sleep, like Rip Van Winkle.TongueGrin

PS. I am still waking up about 2am and spend time " thinking about things, Like a walk in the park, Things, like a kiss in the dark......" then I start remembering old love songs, old girl friends, and cry myself to SLEEP.SadSadWinkGrin

You're not tired enough. Also, as one gets older, less sleep is needed..........

Thanks Carabosse for the music, but don't rub my nose in it - "like a sail-boat ride", all I could afford was a 3d. fare on the local ferry, at the harbour.Wink

You're lucky to have afforded it, I had to wade through the river! Sad
