I Can't Sleep!

I Can't Sleep!

Like many nights, I have the hardest time sleeping. I can either fall asleep, but will wake up three to four hours later. Or I have trouble falling asleep. I've tried lemon verbena (it works really well). I've also tried melatonin (it leaves me groggy). The last time I took an Ambien, I woke up after 5 hours and was miserable for the entire day. Below, is  advice  from some of my FaceBook friends. What are some of your remedies for those restless nights?

Heather  Sorry to hear you can't sleep. Sometimes a good book and a cup of tea helps me. I'm just always a nite owl and feel like I have to complete everything before I can go to bed. Otherwise I lay there and think of all the things I didn't do. Maybe this is a mom thing.
