What is a weird/uncommon insomnia tip that works for you, especially if you're someone with a lot of anxious thoughts? We all know the common tips (warm milk, lavender, etc.) but my insomnia is pretty bad and I would like tips that involve tackling stuff like nighttime phobias and overactive thoughts. I haven't been getting as much sleep as I would like (it takes me a long time to fall asleep and then I wake up earlier than what I find ideal), I can't see my old doctor anymore for prescriptions, and I have been going through a particularly stressful/triggering time thanks to a lot of life situations going on with me.

One suggestion is to use a weighted blanket and white noise or calming nature sounds to help relax. Meditation, avoiding phone usage an hour before bed, and adjusting the room's lighting with a warm night light or blackout curtains can also be helpful in tackling nighttime phobias and overactive thoughts.
