Remedy for my malady?

Woke up this morning, still burdened with one thing that really frustrated me that I still could not get a smooth sleep the night before, I took a simple calculation while I was bathing that over a week, I in fact suffer "intermittent disturbance" during my sleep.

I would wake up in between hours, sometimes at 1 am, another time, could be 3.am and so on and so forth. I have tried many things to get over this problem, I ran, I took milk, I took hot shower before sleep,I read books just to get tired, I tried to sleep and late, sometimes I even hit the road at about 1 am and ran for an hour, came back, thought I could be tired but still the good sleep eluded me.

And you know this is the time when "prayer" seems to be the most frustrating thing to do, cause it just seems to work for me,I am not blaming God though and that's exactly how I'd feel.

Worries? You may ask, may be a little here and there but I don't think it would warrant such a condition of mine to persist in this manner.

And sometimes this is the reason, I woke up early in the morning, do some praying and blogging.

Do you have had got such an experience like mine?

P/S : I know how it feels when sleeps are lost

  1. Saw the time of your post.. 6am... that is very early. Is this some kind of insomnia? Too many things to think and bothering you?

  2. I think I face the same each time when comes to month end. When too many worries kick in, but it get better 1st week of the month, and it will come back again.. it's a routine..

  3. Have you tried milk thistle? Insomnia could be due to liver problem too. For me, I try not to do any exercise late at night, it actually makes your body and mind overactive. I practise dead man pose in yoga, that is taking deep breathing slowly, it helps to relax your mind and calm your nerve.

  4. I do two things when I can't sleep which is not so often, thank goodness. I either watch tv (Astro gives one the chance to channel-hop like crazy and since switching to HD, there are more channels!) or I get online - not necessarily blogging but checking out mails (without answering them yet), reading news sites, simply surfing, also play a game or two maybe until it gets boring that your eyes had to shut.

    Psst.. also, don't let your mind dwell too much on your worries. They will sort out by themselves, you'll see.

  7. you are not alone... i do have this kinda issues too..specially during summer in my country..(like what we have now) The heat is so consuming and you can't even have a good night sleep.
    I think the bed is one factor as well... If your bed is not comfortable it will be difficult to achieve the good rest. Stay blessed

  8. I think it's a common problem..
    I'd suggest not to look at the clock, may be read a book or watch TV?

    2. I dunno, means I sleep that time automatically sit up.

      Did you watch wrestling? One of the special move for Undertaker or Kane, when they got whack until lay down on floor, suddenly sit up and scare their opponent and choke slam them.

      That is the sit up I am telling u lol!

  11. Hmm, I think you should stop worry about it. I agree with Sheoh Yan, when you wake up in the middle of the night, just lie down, relax yourself from your head to toes, breath in and out deeply a few times, then back to normal breathing. Concentrate on your breathing and don't think about anything. Try don't take tea or coffee after 4pm. See if this works.

  12. It's quite normal for me (and my hubb). Usually try not to think so much and giving stress to myself. Will lay dead on my bed and concentrate on my breathing to clear my mind.

  15. If all things fail for you to sleep, just pray to God that He will heal you. I have a sister in my church, who had bad insomnia and through prayer, God delivered her.

    Bro, uphold your mind and body to God each nite before you sleep. That God will take control over all of you IJN, amen.
