    Set your iPad to play 20 or 30 minutes of soothing music!

    At first, it works. But then, I have to listen for at least one hour. Do I need any treatment?

    Maybe!

    But maybe you go to bed too early!

    Difficulty in sleeping may be an indication of a health problem. Whether or not you need treatment for it may best be answered by a medical practitioner more qualified than most members of this forum. I do hope that situation improves for you and that you are able to seek such help.

    Do any of these scenarios sound like yours:

    How to solve 9 sleep problems - CNN.com

    If your sleep is disrupted enough to see a doctor, you might be able to get better results if you're able to help narrow down the possible causes.

    I've been lucky with sleep and remember only a handful of nights when I couldn't sleep. I've never set a bedtime -- I just go to sleep when I'm tired. If I can't sleep, I just read a book or surf the Web (much easier since iPhone and iPad) till I'm tired. I never force myself to sleep, because I find it counterproductive. YMMV of course.

    I have one audiobook (Remembrance of Things Past by Proust) that I've not been able to finish for years, because it seems to put me right to sleep. Its slow, meandering narrative and the languid reading have some kind of knockout effect on me. Meditations by Marcus Aurelius has a similar effect on me. I got both of those audiobooks from Audible -- they're good professional readings. Maybe you can find your version of such soporific audiobooks as well, if your sleep prob is only occasional.

    Are you getting any exercise? You don't need a gym membership; I sleep much better since I got serious about walking briskly for a mile every day, regardless of the weather.

    This sounds like good advice. Obviously, if the sleep issue is causing you problems it would be worth seeking medical advice. However, it may be something as simple as a lifestyle change. Do not eat late at night, have a good long walk after your meal then have a nice hot drink prior to going to bed. This may do the trick.
    Good luck.

    Partake of strong drink until you are numb and wake up when the dog licks your feet. That is how I do it, anyway./
