Sleep hygiene: A twenties female with unrefreshing sleep and insomnia should try to normalize the sleep process by adequate daily exercise, regular bedtimes, and looking at the dusk and dawn skies to help reset the circadian rhythms. Chronic pain conditions that interrupt sleep and a proper sleep surface and environment are important.

No: This does not sound normal and should be checked out further. Good luck!

Sleep zzz: The best way to get on a "normal" sleep schedule is to have a standard wake time, avoid naps. Go to bed only when you're tired. If you can't fall asleep within 20mins, get out of bed until you're tired again. Avoid substances that impact sleep, like alcohol. If you want to rule out any medical causes of sleep difficulties, we live near a sleep center http://tinyurl.Com/krbzamx.
