The big lil' Q.a.t.a.r.
So uh
It's summer vacation, which means there's not much of a way to let out most of my wakefulness because im a ball of awful, explosive, agitated energy ready to scatter at any moment and it's ruining my already shredded sleep schedule.

What are your guys' ways of knocking yourself out because not much is helpin' me and im suffering

I can feel your pain. The only vaguely solution-like thing I've found is to set an early alarm and force myself to get up for it. But sometimes I sleep through that anyway.

My late-night wakefulness is often followed by late-morning sleepiness, not sure if it's the same for you.

im afraid this won't really help you immediately, and also you'll receive exactly the same advice from literally any health website, but

stay off the internet after 10-12 at night (big important one)

exercise in the afternoon -- or since it's really hot in the afternoon in qatar, maybe evening or early morning. remember pools are good and count as exercise.

if you think you can sleep, don't do anything else but try to sleep. if you can't, do anything other than laying in bed. don't restlessly vacillate between trying to sleep and doing something else every five minutes.

don't do nonsleep shit in your bed, it fucks up your brain into thinking that sleep doesn't happen there.

oh and most importantly: although you should always make a big effort to try to get to bed on time, if you can't sleep or you lose track of time before going to bed,

don't stress over it if you can help it.

it's not a big deal, you don't have school tomorrow so you can sleep in if you need, and if you don't sleep in, it doesn't matter if you're tired all day (and being tired all day can even make it more likely you fall asleep the next day).

being stressed out just makes it even harder to fall asleep, and even if after calming down you can't sleep, well at least you're not feeling quite so awful about it.

and if you can't stop worrying about it, that's okay too. just try to remember that even if you're slippin up now, it don't mean shit for how well you sleep tomorrow night.

if it works, great! if it don't, who cares!

edit: that's the attitude you should have towards trying to fall asleep, not the attitude i have towards this advice (i hope it works).

I think not having a large quantity of electronics in your bedroom is also a good idea, most of them are frivolities. No mobile phones/tablets, no hand-held video game consoles, no laptops, those are the things I think of usually.

you have to stop looking at screens two hours before you go to sleep.
