sometimes a half glass of milk and a half piece of bread with some peanut butter does it for me.

Interestingly enough, my remedy for stress and foul moodiness is the same for insomnia.

Speaking in tongues is a pretty reliable cure for insomnia in my experience. Empties the mind.

Put in some strenious work should get you tired enough to sleep well.. Unless there are large emotional issues concerning you or other stressors.

Inability to sleep last night was notable 'cuz I can usually doze off in pretty much any circumstance (I routinely sleep through dental work).

Finally drifted off, only to have the goons decide that something outside must die (waking up to a beagle wail is not so entertaining )
