If you wake up in the night and can’t get back to sleep within 15 minutes or so, get out of bed and do an activity that requires your hands and your head, like a jigsaw puzzle or a coloring book, says Richard Wiseman, professor for the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University if Hertfordshire and author of Night School: Wake up to the power of sleep. Stay away from the TV and digital screens, whose blue light has been proven to suppress melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone.

I've been stressed out with some health problems recently and don't fall asleep sometimes until 1/2 am (really unusual for me). My naturopath suggested I try taking passionflower (in liquid form) to calm me down, and it helps with the stress and actually puts me out within 30min to an hour. Calms my brain and body down enough that I end up just wanting to sleep, and do, comfortably.

I liked that one, and admit I do that too when I give up trying to sleep.
It's nature's Ambien.

Yea, it seems taboo, and I was a bit shy to admit that, but why should anyone be?

In my dream journal I even take note of the times I use that method to go to sleep, so I can review it later in case it has affected my dreams either in content or having a deeper sleep. I never did look back to see a correlation, though, but it's there. I use a code word though. I write, "after WBTB I relaXed and went back to sleep", so nobody in my family reading it will know.

(But now, all of you know and the entire internet! :D )

Reading a good book helps me to get a good sleep.
