    Unhappy Insomnia

    I have had insomnia for 3 months now. I am a decathlete, I am finding it hard to train to the greatest intensity.
    I get out of breath more and muscle strength is down, so I take it easier.
    I have tried most techniques to work towards solving the problem, I am currently doing sleep restriction therapy but it has been partially successful
    as well as getting 1 hour of daylight a day or more.
    Is there any advice?
    I have taken it easy for so long and I have missed so many gains.
    Hope seems to be lost when I have competitions to make.

    Instead of posting on an internet forum, you should be talking with your doctor to work through the issue.

    not saying it will work but it certainly can't hurt to try

    begin taking zma and in addition to that get yourself some topical magnesium oil, rub it in your skin about an hour before bed. magnesium calms the nervous system and may make you drowsy. for me it gives me more sound sleep but i noticed after a few days of using it the effects wore off.

    if you haven't done these things yet make sure to do so:

    no light in your room, you want to make sure it's like a cave. your alarm will wake you up. if you have the luxury of it being quiet take advantage of that as much as you can. a great quality multi vitamin to make sure you're not deficient in other nutrients. NO stimulants at all, none. this will give your nervous system a break.

    turn off your wifi at home when it's bed time, make sure your cell phone internet is turned off when you go to bed. if you can keep it in another room altogether.

    just some pointers hope these will help.

    I suggest that one hour before you go to sleep. You should stop using your phone and take a shower at night. That's what i always do if i'm going to bed.

    How do you train decathlon with only one hour outside per day?

    What time do you go to bed?

    Use blue blocker glasses when using a computer tablet etc . Same goes for phone .
    Blue light totally screws with sleep .

    Take a couple calcium supplements when you head for bed . Calcium actually causes you to go into a state of calmness when you try to fall asleep

    What helps me:

    -Regular bedtimes
    -having a cool room to sleep

    Having a pre-bedtime routine:

    -drinking a cup of tea (not more to prevent waking up!)
    -dim lights
    -stretch
    -listening to calm music

    If my brain wont shut up, it can help to listen to rainfall, calm music, a relaxing podcast.
