hi,

try not to spend too much time in your bedroom except when it's time for bed. because then your mind will switch to sleep mode when you hit the bed.. avoid watching tv or reading in bed.

it works for me, hope this helps.

take care

It could be due to tension, excitement, stress.. etc
Try using aromatheraphy..

Sometimes i will feel tired when i am outside but once i reach home, hit my pillow i dun fell the tiredness already and it always take me very long for me to fall into deep slp.... otherwise will be waking up on off during the nite...

it has been like that for the past few yrs and i used to exercise till i am really tired so that i can slp once i reach home but i think it doesnt help very much... i then tried drinking which i think helps abit more but this will also mean that i will become addicted to liqour...

my guess is that singapore life is just too stress already...work is just nv ending....

Hi ahben1980,
yeah stress can result of such..
but perhaps u can find other solution than your current one, for your own good.. :)

There is this health product which main ingredients is MELATONIN. It is a safe and effective treatment for sleep disoder, jet lag and even depression.

I tried it myself and it is really effective!


I first tried Melatonin when it gained notoriety about 15 years ago

it was praised as a be all and end all, and marketed as a jet-lag remedy

I found that it not only did not always put me down, but whenever it did, I was a zombie the following day

there are Valerian/Melatonin combination products which you can get at most vitamin suppliment shops, but beware of the next-day effects

Scorpion, I just posted some things about insomnia on another thread,

http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/su ... tml#177181

on it, there is a link to an online board like this specifically for people with sleep disorders

http://www.sleepnet.com/wwwboard/forum9.html

I found it out of necessity, when about a month ago, I simply could not get to or stay asleep, which never happened before

I have more to offer on this if you're interested

and as far as Singapore being a place that is too stressful, it depends on what you're used to - coming from New York and Tokyo, I find this place extremely relaxing
