Yeah, I realize some activities are too stimulating in the nighttime hours and prevent falling asleep in a reasonable amount of time.
A little conversation on this message board is fine, but a heated political debate on another online forum I visit after 10 pm? Not good. :)
You might want to make sure that you have low mental, emotional, social, or intellectual stimulation prior to bed. Make a list of things which stimulate you and make sure you do those things prior to a certain hour in the evening to give yourself leeway to cool down, so to speak.
(Example, no phone call after 8 pm, or no tv after ten, or no important conversations after 8 pm)
One thing I have to do is limit checking my emails after a certain time, because sometimes some come from work that get my brain ticking or get me stressed.
