Got any reliable non-medicinal cures for insomnia? This whole week, I've been sleeping on average of one-and-a-half to three hours a night, and it's getting frustrating. I can't blame too much sugar, since I've been watching my diet. And I can't say I'm not getting any exercise because I've been hitting the treadmill in an effort to wear myself out.
Thursday night I dragged myself to bed when I was just about falling asleep in my chair. I think I may actually have started to fall asleep but then Gizmo Guy came in and turned the light on and that woke me up for a while. I managed to fall asleep for an hour, hour and a half at the max, then woke up just after one as if someone had rung a fire alarm right beside my ear, my brain whirring with thoughts. I ended up giving up and getting up, going downstairs to work on my WIP, then dragged myself back up to bed at 5:30 to wake up when Gizmo Guy got up at 6:30.
It wasn't a total loss, while I was up, I made a decision about the start, and made notes. Then when I got up this morning, I started fleshing it out and wrote over 2K through the day - so I guess some good came out of it, but still. I've got to get a good night's sleep soon or else I'll be falling asleep on my computer just like little kitty above. (Which is funny because that laptop's just like my mini-Mac.)
Okay, okay, I guess I'm a little excited. In fact I'm wondering if maybe that's why I'm not sleeping.
But as I said ... got any home remedies for insomnia? Other than a half bottle of scotch that is? I'd like to be able to function the next day ...
