Sleep Deprived

I have been suffering from a pretty severe bout of insomnia.  Case and point: it is 4:30 am as I type this.  And I feel awful.

Have you been here before?  When all you want to do is crawl into bed and fall asleep, but sleep is proving elusive?  That’s me.  Big time.  I just can’t sleep.

Typically a cup of peppermint tea would solve the problem,  but even that has failed me.

At this point I am starting to blame my bed (and the bed in the guestroom and the sofa…).  Maybe what I need is something completely different, so that I can trick myself into going to sleep…

Something like these:

So, who has amazing techniques for combating insomnia?  I really need sleep!


(So I am completely failing at finding the original sources of these images- I am blaming the sleep deprivation- so if you know where they are form, please let me know!)



  1. Oh no! I hate sleepless nights. I’m afraid I don’t have any tips for battling insomnia, but I hope you get some sleep soon!

  2. oh no, I hope you are able to catch some zzz’s tonight! :-( That boat bed sure does look relaxing…

  3. I hope it has gotten better!! Sometimes I try to count backwards from 100 and tell myself how much I love sleep. Get some sleep soon!!

    Love that first image of the boat bed…what amazing dreams one would have in it!


  4. There is nothing worse than sleep depreviation….. well, I can think of more things, but a lack of sleep is the pits!!!! I absolutely LOVE the first photograph by the way!

  5. That bed in the trees makes me nervous (heights and all), but I love the boat….

    Yes, I know exactly how you feel. I’ve been burning my candle on both ends for few months now and it is catching up with me. Some nights I am so tired that I can’t fall asleep yet I can’t think straight and do anything else.

    Hope you get some good night sleep tonight.

    Are you worrying about something? Stress can keep us from falling asleep. Otherwise, pay special attention to what you eat/drink for the next couple of weeks. If you eat a lot of processed food then reduce that and replace with fruits and vegetables. And try to get some exercise in during the day, before 5pm if possible. Make it fun – put on some great music and dance it out for 10 or fifteen minutes. Also, no iPads in bed (my insomnia causer) no TVs in bedroom and yes, get a bed like that floating boat. AMAZING! I so want one of those. Good luck, lovely : )

  7. I have insomnia all the time and no cool trip to the honduras to blame it on. The only remedy {and I live on peppermint tea at night} is to work so hard and long during the day that I literally fall asleep on the couch/table/reading in bed and have to sleep…otherwise I’m up all night. Sorry, not much help!

    p.s. I pinned those images a long time ago on pinterest so it’s safe to say they’re from there I guess :)

  8. I have insomnia too. I hate it. I take forever to fall asleep, but once I’m asleep, I’m out for the count!
