Insomnia common: Not sleeping at night is a common problem in modern history and is due to many reasons, one of the common is, poor sleep schedule. Sleep hygeine helps; sleep at same time, get up at the same time, do not exercise two hours before exercise and do not eat an hour before sleep, do not watch tv in your bed room or do not watch it to fall asleep. 90% of the time these measure help you, if not call md.
