I am more than ready for a good nights sleep, but lights out, and my brain is still whirring away energetic as ever, I’m starting to wonder if the computer is the culprit?

Even a glass of hot milk, a late night warm shower, or some meditative thoughts don’t seem to be helping and it is really starting to get me down. Last night I had to get up and wash my hands and feet in cold water, I just didn’t know what else to do with them, it didn’t help much but it felt like the right thing to do at the time.

So, I have decided to step away from the laptop for a couple of days! No more hard core research, late night tweeting, pinning, blogging or blog networking. Just to see if it helps.

Part of the problem is that I know the little guy will wake up at any minute, so my body won’t let me relax until I have dealt with his first middle of the night feed, but now I am struggling to nod off even after my job is done, now I seem to be clock watching until the next feed and the next.

There is a routine to it now which I need to break out of, but I just don’t know how. I was never this tired even when he was a newborn!!

Is anyone else out there having the same problem? Do you have any advice, tips or tricks to help me fall asleep? Please help!!!

    It could very well be the screen. It is well known that they can disturb sleep AND make it a poorer quality. Try reading a book or magazine. If having a break seems to work then try to minimise screen use in the evening. Hope that helps! Not being able to sleep is the pits!

    I am able to sleep, but I go to bed a bit wired because the last thing I do, most nights, is look at a screen. I really should start reading (a book) again.

Please add your thoughts and comments, it makes me happy!
