Click on Profile and scroll down to Timezone. It should say GMT + 10 hours. If it doesn't, the post time stamp will be out.

Being a single parent it's okay if I can't sleep, I let my kids stay up late and they sleep in with me. :grin: But instead of posting on crap forums Image I have a trivia room to go to and annoy everyone there live. So crappy chatrooms are yet another option if you're too tired to read a book or actually do something productive. Or you could put a load of washing on or do the vaccuuming and make sure there's a good chance others will suffer with you. :grin: The best thing for insomnia is apparently to keep yourself awake, but that's not much use when you've gotta work. The best thing I think in the middle of the night is to do something to keep your mind occupied till your head starts nodding and hope that you sleep second time around. The internet is good for keeping you occupied, even if it's just swearing at all the rubbish you didn't ask to see but keeps popping up on your screens anyway. :shock:

Hope you got some sleep last night.

Or you could try dragging out your swag and kipping out the back yard. Maybe you just miss the great outdoors. 8)

I'm all outta beer. Had half a glass of Wild Turkey on ice, but that really didn't seem to do anything. Cleared up my throat for a while though 8)

BTW, the big meal didn't help either :?

I usually sleep pretty well, but I cannot tell you what I am doing right. I do occasionally wake up when the koalas are going for it hammer and tong in the tree outside our bedroom window, or when one of the kids is having nightmares.

A few years back I had trouble sleeping, mainly because I couldn't get my brain to switch off, which is usually the main cause of insomnia. Work decided to put some of us through one of those well being courses and we learnt meditation, which I have to say helped me turn off (though some days I have trouble switching back on again). Though I haven't done any meditation for a while, I think I have better control of the switch.

The best way to describe the brain processes is that your brain collects a lot of information through the day and it needs to process it. When you are busy the brain stores the information for processing later. Ever woke up and remembered you had forgotten to do something? Its the processing that keeps you awake. Reading, surfing the net etc delays the processing. Drinking alcohol (responsibly of course) makes you relax and helps process the info. So process that information! :grin:

Sorry that was an engineer's understanding of psychology :beer
