So you can’t fall asleep? Your thoughts float or spin in your head, even if you feel very tired? Or you can’t stay asleep as long as you desire? You wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes several times, you go to the bathroom, you think, you stare in the dark, your mind starts racing again, you worry about something, you mentally review your to-do list for tomorrow, you brainstorm about the presentation you are working on?
Whether it's guarding the stoop, taking a ride in the family car, or hanging out at home on the couch, sometimes it's just tough to resist a snooze.

In promotion for their upcoming "Up All Night" event (it's free!), Chemistry.com did some investigating into which cities are more likely to have singles prowling the streets looking for love between midnight and 6 a.m. Although most people would think New York City would make number one on the list, it didn't even make it into the top 10 — although (no...sleep...'til) Brooklyn did!
Is Your Schedule Impacting Your Child’s Routine? Getting home at the same time from work never seems to work out. When you get home your exhausted and burnt out from your day. You didn’t even get to have a “break” on your way home from work because traffic was horrific or your concentration ability has been sucked out of you from your day. You come home and your husband has the kids on the couch watching a movie.
Your friend texts you about their frustrating day, your taxes have to be filed, the radio spouts news of another disaster somewhere, and you still haven’t taken your car in for its oil change. With the wonders of technology and high-speed interaction between us all, we’re finding it more and more difficult to keep our mental machinery chugging away at optimum performance. What you need is scheduled maintenance.
When it comes to sharing the bed, sometimes pets can get in the way of couples. Jill and Ray have been dating for five years, during which Ray’s spent many a night pouting about having to sleep with Jill’s cat Mona. His problem? Too much cat hair in the bed for one, she says.
At times we can feel as though our emotional reactions take control of us and we have no choice but to follow in their destructive path. The truth is that everyone has the ability to be in control during difficult times and that it takes work to get there. Part of that work is reducing your vulnerabilities so that you can feel stronger and more able to face life.
Have you ever come home after a long, stressful day, desperately desiring a peaceful night's sleep, but when you put head to pillow, your brain just won't cooperate?
