Our expert says:
The worst thing about insomnia, is worrying about it, lying there convincing yourself that you cannot get to sleep. If you don't get to sleep in 10-15 minutes ( and learning self-relaxation can help a lot ) its usually best to get up and do something useful, but maybe restful and a bit boring, like reading a worthy but dull book, or watching the endless repeats of really bad movies on DSTV "Always Something Old ), until you feel drowsy, and then going back to bed again. Try a warm milky drink, which supplies some chemicals that help support sleep.
