Top Ten Mind-Occupying Activities for Insomniacs

It is currently 1:32 am, and I've been trying to sleep for four hours.

Sometimes I'm here if I've been awake in bed for four hours or so. - PositronWildhawk

Good list

I've been on here for the past hour - remixing, voting, commenting… all in a desperate attempt to put myself to sleep. - PetSounds

2 Reading

Just one more chapter… - PetSounds

3 Listening to music

Only not thrash metal… - PetSounds

4 Counting sheep

Tried and tested by me. I just get frustrated because there are so many. How am I supposed to know if I've counted the same one twice?! - Britgirl

5 Counting down from 1000 by sevens, in time with a clock

Every time you mess up, you restart. I just made it all the way through. ****! - PetSounds

6 Trying to fall asleep

After a fruitless half hour, I always go back to one of the other activities mentioned. - PetSounds

7 Eating

Sometimes helps, sometimes hinders. - PetSounds

8 Surfing the internet
9 Trying to remember passages from books

"To be or not to be…" - PetSounds

10 Long division

Insomnia is why I am the only person I know who can do it without paper. - PetSounds

That is a good one. I sometimes do matrix algebra in my head to help me sleep. It's quirky but it'll worky. - PositronWildhawk
