valerian root is great at relieving stress and tension! you can get it over the counter and it's a great sleep aid! if you have one of those "racing minds" or "i can't turn my head off no matter how tired i am" then this will definitely help. you can find at your local grocery store in the pharmacy or herbal remedy section. start off taking 500-1000mgs, 30-45 minutes before you go to bed. now you can get this stuff in capsule form and it's 100% safe (my whole family has been taking it for years and our family doctor actually recommended it) however the only downside is that the more potent the brand your taking the stronger the smell. and this stuff smells AWFUL! but it's worth it. within 5-7 days you should notice a definite change in your sleep.
WARNING! i strongly do not suggest that you take Tylenol PM and booze (side note on booze and ambien cr: booze plus ambien seem to mess with the ability to have a deep and peaceful night's sleep, so if you're going to drink do it hours before you go to bed), in any form or combination. the main ingredient in Tylenol PM and Advil pm, or benadryl for that matter is diphenhydramine. here's what happens when you take it:
You can walk into a drugstore and choose from an array of sleep aids, offered without prescription. The main ingredient of over-the-counter sleeping pills is an antihistamine. Antihistamines are generally taken for allergies, but also make you feel very sleepy. Common over-the-counter sleep medications are Sleep-Eze, Sominex, Nytol, and Unison; they contain antihistamines such as:
diphenhydramine citrate, or
In general, over-the-counter sleep medications are not a good choice because they:
Are not intended for long-term use.
Interfere with mental alertness during the day, so you should avoid driving and other similar tasks. You may also be at risk for falling asleep
Reduce the quality of your sleep by reducing time you spend in deep sleep.
Use over-the-counter sleep medications only for transient or short-term insomnia and in conjunction with changes to your sleeping habits. Be sure to pay attention to your body’s physical response to these sleep medications.
also look at the links on the website i've listed they have some good alternative remedies!
I hope this helps!

To sleep better just relax and switch off, if you can.
If you are having trouble switching off at bedtime some light exercise at bedtime often helps you to relax, unwind and switch off and that often improves your sleep. Strenuous exercise at bedtime is likely to ruin your sleep.
Common sleep aids include warm milk, Chamomile tea, 5-HTP, Melatonin and Valerian.
You can see further tips in a web search for "how to fall asleep and stay asleep".
It'll only make it worse.
Continue to exercise, but not too harshly. If you find yourself laying in bed, not being able to sleep after a few minutes. Don't worry. Get up and go quietly do something. Sit at the computer for a few minutes. Check some mail. Chat. Post a few things. Listen to some soft music. Draw, read.
Involve yourself into a quiet time and space. You may want to have some music in the room, instrumental, to play while you sleep. It'll take your mind off the fact its a new apartment and you can delve yourself into the music and that could very well put you to sleep. =]
Hope this helps! I'm having problems sleeping too, but thats b ecause I'm sick. =[

Don't ever take the sleeping pills route!!
1. They will damage your liver big time and you can get into serious health problems.
2. You will get hooked up on them and you won't be able to have a normal life any more if you don't take your pills everyday.
The sleeping pills industry is damaging our health by capitalizing on our ignorance, and by distracting people from effective and natural ways to deal with this problem. I had been taking prescription sleep medications [Ambien] for over 5 years. It stopped working and I simply took more. Still did not work. Nights were very difficult - medication put me to sleep but I would wake up after 2–3 hours with a strong sympathetic response (fast pulse, pounding heartbeat, wide awake alert). It was a very difficult cycle to break. I was really in bad shape due to lack of sleep.
After years of struggling I was able to cure my insomnia naturally and pretty fast. I followed the Sleep Tracks sleep optimization program, here is their official web -site if you want to take a look: http://www.insomniacure.net
Ohhh..and Good Luck!

It might have more to do with your new place than with you not being tired enough. Are you anxious? Is this the first time you've lived alone? If that's the case, then it will take some time for you to adjust but you will. Try and make the place as homey and comfortable as you can. The more comfortable you feel in your new place, the easier you will fall asleep. Good luck.

Originally Answered: what is the best place to eat and shop at night city walk or Down town Disney?
Both are free to wander around.
If you are looking to shop for Disney related items then obviously DTD is your best bet. The non-Dsiney shops are very nice to look at too. The restaurant choices are good Earl of Sandwich is a good cheaper place to eat and Fultons and Raglan Road are really nice more expensive palces to eat there. DTD also has DisneyQuest which is a 4 story arcade and Splitsville which is a bowling alley (done by Disney so of course it is more than just regular bowling). And the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba! Don't forget Ghirardelli's for dessert too!!
CityWalk has more "everyday" type stores like watch shops (Fossil), Surf shops (Billabong, Roxy etc) and cigar stores but the bar/nightclubs selection is great. The restaurant choices are not as good in my opinion but there are several chain choices like Bubba Gumps, NASCAR grill and Margaritaville. They also have a food court area that has Panda Express and a BK Whopper Bar. The Blue Man Group has a show there that is worth seeing.
I didn't park at either so I am not sure if there are fees.
