Do you ever not fall asleep at night for at least 1-3 hours because your mind is inundated with setting up your classroom, preparing materials, etc.? That's been me the last few weeks. I feel like I am awake most of the night, though some nights I am not. It normally goes away after school starts, but still, that's 16 days away and I don't need 16 nights without proper sleep. I tried going to bed very early the other night... it still took 2 hours to fall asleep. I tried going to bed late and posted here to get "tired"... that wasn't intelligent (though I helped people out!! :lol: ). When I fell asleep another night, I closed my eyes and tried to block every thought out of my mind for quite some time. That was the hardest night. Nothing helped me to come up with a solution. I really need help here. Is there something I can do? Who has been through this?
