    BTW, I also did use my mind to remeber all the taeguks and the self defense techs of kenpo when lying in bed but this makes me more anxious so I loose the sleep.

    I was reading through this and thinking "I do patterns in my head slowly in time to slow breaths." I'm glad I'm not the only one! lol

    I start at white belt patterns and work my way up slowly. I don't think I've ever managed to stay awake until 4th kup patterns.

    I don't know about your country but the US has relatively little oversight of natural medicines. And I'm not necessarily saying that's a bad thing because the people who oversee prescription medicines having power over natural medicines is something that scares me. In any case, the supplement/natural medicine market is full of hucksters so what you buy may contain some, all, or none of what it's supposed to be. So, I would try another source of valerian before I gave up on it.If you snore and are overweight you may also have sleep apnea. This can, among other things make you tired. It can also cause many more severe problems.

    On the rare occasion I have trouble sleeping a benadryl puts me out in 5 or 10 minutes 100% of the time.

    I'm one that visualizes forms - in extreme detail. (I started doing that in a previous sport that had something similar.) When I only knew a couple of forms I might have to go through them a couple of times. Now that I know 11 I sometimes start with the newest one so that I get a chance to "practice" it. Otherwise, I tend to start mixing things up at about palgue sam jang. Very rarely make it all the way through the palgue forms. That would have meant a whole cup of coffee at 7:30 in the morning!
