what do you do when you can't sleep?

 

Like Malefactus said, take a melatonin and then occupy myself until it kicks in. Typically that means I read from something boring (Right now that's Hynes The Ecology of Running Waters) and when I can no longer focus on it that means it's time to turn the lights out and get some sleep.

Depends on how not asleep I am.if I'm only kind of awake I will usually just lay there and try to sleep. Sometimes I will read an ebook but mostly I'll get up and play a video game. Most of the time when I can't sleep it is because I had been asleep and then woke up rather than not being able to fill asleep.

Pfft!  I sleep the sleep of the just.  If I do anything in the night that might trouble me in the morning, I simply sleep in until noon.

That depends.  If I can’t sleep because something is bugging me (work project deadline), sometimes I’ll just get up and start doing it.  If it’s a random thing, I’ll usually read.  In either case, I know I’ll have to pay for it  with a nap the next day...

Mostly toss and turn and try not to wake up the wife. When It's totally obvious I won't sleep soon I move to the living room and watch tv or read something. Not sleeping well is an all too common occurence for me.

Play a stupid phone game. 
 

Though, usually not sleeping is something that’s forced upon, rather than something that just happens.

It all depends on what seems to be causing the issue with sleep.  Painting in the past has helped, as has gaming.

 

Things I don't do?  Prep minis.  You really REALLY do not want to be using a hobby knife when you're that tired, or your files.  Okay, the files aren't as bad but they still sting when you dig them into your skin!

Mainly do mental exercises. I go over some of my stories in my head, they're very familiar and let my mind go through it all effortlessly. It keeps my brain busy without having to input anything, which calms it and lets me falls asleep.

Go to youtube, open up a ten hour video of rainstorm background noise. Nothing like rain and thunder to lull me to sleep in about 5-10 minutes.

We have tracked the kobolds from the moon to an art show. So we will need to go under cover.  What is the best thing you have painted, drawn, or sculpted this month?

"These are not the kobolds you are looking for."

If it is my back (or shoulder, or neck) I have an RX to help with that.

If it is the normal "brain won't quite calm down", phone game or ebook.

If it is stress or problem related, Melatonin, then phone game or ebook.

Well...if my girl is also awake, lets see if we can get tired :poke:

 

If not...think of something nice or count my unpainted minis in my head...

Read.  Or play computer games. I dusted off Master of Magic last time I really couldn’t sleep.
