isleeping always feel tired. I know this has a lot to do with lifestyle....I get up most days at 5.15 am and am on the go until around 8pm, when I have a couple of hours in front of TV.
I go to bed 10ish and read for 30/40 minutes.
I fall asleep almost straight away, but wake at around 2 am and can't get back to sleep so I start the day tired.
Nytol and other herbal remedies don't work, nor does Lavendar spray. Counting sheep doesn't work ( they all mis behave!!!!)
I need something to break this cycle. Please!

I often find myself in this situation and it's normally psychological. If I can solve whatever is on my mind, I can normally sleep. I think you're going to bed at the right time. I use ear plugs which really help. Sometimes just acceptance that this will pass in a week or so. Other times tell yourself that just lying there resting your body is good enough. This can stop me getting stressed about not sleeping and I can drop off.

Try Sominex. But not the herbal ones.
