    Argh!!!!

    As you can tell, it's quarter past three in the morning and I'm wide awake. I have a really important meeting in 6 hours and so far have only been able to sleep for about one hour!!!

    I'm actually working away and am in a very nice hotel in Sheffield, I've had a couple of Guiness but still to no avail. I feel really tired but just lie there awake.

    I seem to have developed insomnia and nothing I seem to do, is curing it. Help, do any of the rest of you have this problem and if so, how do you get to sleep and stay asleep?

    I feel for you, mate. I quite often find my body clock out of synch with the real world but sometimes that's the nature of the job. Personally I usually find if it hard to sleep if I've not done any exercise for a few days.

    Oh one of my team has full on insomnia which is both a curse and a blessing..... especially when he just logs on from home at 2am and gets on with work! :) lol
     
  3. That's horrible, i never really sleep properly when away.

    Best thing I find is have a couple of pints & a very late night. Otherwise I end up waking up about 5 times.

    Hope you eventually got some sleep & the meeting went ok ??

    i had sleep problems for years , I can go weeks with limited sleep but is will catch up with you in the end , having a lie-in on a Sunday is little use when you don’t have a reasonable sleep pattern

    from what you say ,you have things on your mind . well that’s what disturbs my sleep also so i went to the doctors ,& his advise was to sleep with a pen & paper ?,sounds daft i know ,but what you do is write down the things on your mind & add to the list as you lay awake trying to get off to sleep , then before you know it, it’s time to wake up try it ,it works most of the time ( for me anyway )
     
  5. That also helps to do during the day.

    Went on a 'Getting Thing Done' training course last year. Yes - big groan - just as I did - another time management course.

    But some of the things they taught - have been very useful & have actually worked & made a huge difference.

    One of them, was always carry pen & paper, whatever you remember, write it down immediately. If it's something you need to do / buy / new project. That will pull the thought from your mind & you'll then forget it - without the guilt feeling that you've forgotten about something.

    I have the same thing happen from time to time.
    I find that if I close my eyes (obviously) & concentrate solely on the sound of my breathing, within a few minutes I'm off to beesh![​IMG]

  11. I was going to suggest paying for the porn channel - that usually puts me in fits of laughter before I fall asleep.

    Good luck with the meeting BTW.

    OMG that is so funny! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I often wake up at 2 or 3am thinking about work stuff and the doc gave me amitryptyline (sp?) to destress but I prefer natural remedies, I hadn't thought of this one :D

    OK, perhaps it would be more accurate to say 'not in this context' ;)
