Help I cant sleep!!

Ok, I work a mid-shift in my job. This means i start at 2pm and finish at 2am sometimes later.
When i get home i have a meal and a shake, get ready for bed etc so by the time im actually going to sleep its usually 4am
Now i usually get to sleep ok but im a really light sleeper and i keep getting woken up by things - today it was a mother fuking pigeon at 5am!! bastard!!
does anyone know of any sleep remedies or where i can buy some decent earplugs??
Im so tired ive been taking days off work and the gym as i simply have no energy

    The local Pharmacy will likely do decent ear plugs. For sleep try Valarian root, or 5-htp. The magnesium in ZMA may help you relax and thus sleep.

    starters air rifle for the pigeon and your local chemist will sell ear plugs to drown out any other noise.

    cup of warm cocoa priot to bed is good that and a hot soak in the bath. Make sure you dont drink too much either otherwise youll be gettng up at all hours of the night to go to the loo as well. Change the sheets make sure theyre comfortable and you dont wake up covered in sweat.

    Thans about all i can think of really

    Well your doing a 12hour shift mate
    Your gonna be tired after that regardless.

    Do you not have off days?
    e.g 3days off, 4days off

    TBH I would only do cardio on those long shift days, and do heavy training on your free days.
    e.g CHEST/BACK, LEGS/CALVES, SHOULDERS/ARMS,

    You can get it off ebay, I buy the 1mg tabs personally as less is supposed to be better.
    I take zma every night and if that fails then melatonin always puts me to sleep.

    ok then earplugs that you use for airplanes work a treat, theyre gel based and squidgy so they block out EVERYTHING!

    I personally find alcohol disrupts my sleep pattern, even a small amount. I will initially sleep but then wake and have a pathy sleep if I have been drinking close to bedtime.

    tamazapian is quite good

    just got some earplugs from boots and some herbal sleeping pills. ive also ordered some zma and mulit vits.
    Dan yeah i work 12 hrs but i always take a break every 2- 3 hrs for food and going to the gym is no problem as long as i get enough sleep the night b4.

    I have a similar problem at moment, i keep going through cycles that last from a few days to few week where i struggle to get to sleep and then wake up about 10 times which is frustrating. Melatonin works but it takes me a few hours in the morning to feel fully awake but i suppose thats a small price to pay for a good nights sleep.

    Tiger81, careful with the ZMA as it contains vit B6 in quite high dosages IIRC, and that could keep you awake till september. as it does for me.

     Fall in love with the process - and the results will come!
