Default Insomnia is a b*tch

Never had it til I started working overnights over a year ago. Any tips? I've been using unisom for a year and think my body's gotten used to it. Going to try this zzzquil out.

I hear its best to just get your body used to a routine but that don't think that's possible when you work at night.

I've worked night shift (12 hrs) 6pm-6am for 2 weeks straight before and didn't have an issue sleeping as long as it was quiet where I was.

I would try as best as possible to not let any light in through windows. Black it out if you need to.

next time ur at walmart, in the huge discount bins they got through-out the store, look for a bottle of coconut oil. the bottle says it's a sleeping aid. only a buck, might as well give it a swirl.

i work 1900-0700. helps, a lot, to stay up the night before a night shift.

those sleep aids are a crutch, though. once they stop working you'll have little to rely on.

The real way to deal with it without using drugs or other aids is to get your body and mind to adapt. It takes some discipline though. I ve battled insomnia for a long time.


Go to sleep every single day at the same EXACT time, and wake up at the same time. When you go to sleep make it a routine, brush your teeth etc.. Turn off any lights 30 mins before. Do not look at any computers or screens. Your brain gives off a chemical that makes you stay awake when it sees light. The first couple of days itll be uncomfortable and you still wont feel any imporvement, but after 5 days you will start to fall asleep faster and faster.
