Insomnia is killing me

I went to bed at 23:30 last night, used melatonin 3 times over the course of the night, but got no sleep. Got my rest between 10AM and 2PM, but spent most of the day tired and lacking focus. This describes at least 2 days in a week for me. It's sapping me of my youth, energy, health and will to live. Wat nou?

    One trick that no one talks about is,
    Being still
    Even the smallest movement resets your time to sleep
    This is a hack, you're mimicking the state od sleep by focusing on not moving

      Still takes a long while to fall asleep, and I usually develop an itch that breaks me out of stillness. Also, I often get to the point in the night where lying in bed just becomes uncomfortable and falling asleep next to impossible. I should get up and walk around when that happens again.

      Thanks for the advice, but I'll need many more in conjunction to fix my absolutely fricked state.

    Do you drink coffee, smoke weed, tobacco, or alcohol? All of these things can reduce quality of sleep over time.
    I've noticed supplemented melatonin can interrupt sleep once it wears off.
    Time of sleep can also impact sleep quality.
    Going to bed near sunset is best for circadian rhythms.

      No to all.

      I've noticed it too. I wake up multiple times on melatonin supplemented sleep.
      >Going to bed near sunset is best for circadian rhythms.
      That's 5PM at this time of the year.

        Yeah, I can't point to it, but there's studies that indicate this. I've had it happen every time I take melatonin. Going to sleep is nice, but then I would wake up in the middle of the night.

        And yeah, check out Huberman, great resource. Think he even mentions the melatonin thing.

        I don't suffer from insomnia, but magnesium before bed does help me doze off. id suggest adding that to whatever you end up doing, but you probably can't solely rely on it.

          I'll take every advice I can and apply everything. I'll fix this issue or kms because I'll never achieve any of my dreams at this rate, nor will I live a long and happy life.

    Unironically everything that has helped me learn how to get good sleep was from watching Andrew Huberman. Hes got great advice, just don't buy any of his meme supplements.

    Stop carbs, go a full day without any caffeine and let your body be sick / hungover about it. D3 in the morning. Just have a reset day

      And about reset days: even when I stay awake for an entire night and day through a force of will, I will stop feeling tired by midnight. If I fall asleep before midnight, I'll wake up at one hour past it and not be able to sleep again until later in the morning. My body/brain refuses to change.

    i have esoteric knowledge and it works. it fixed my insomnia: Get up out of bed every 15 minutes until you start getting sleepy. If you find yourself being awake in the bed for more than 20 minutes, get up and do something for 2 minute and go back to bed. Dont switch on the lights though. Stay in the dark.

      This might just be the magic trick that works. I'll try this tonight.

      Take a cold shower and decrease the temp of you body as much as you can

      Don't cold showers wake people up?

      insomnia is literally the kind of tired that sleep will fix

      Just used it because that's what my eyes look like.

        They make me sleepy in my case. In anyway being too hot messes up your sleep
