Last night I did not sleep at all. I laid down for a few hours, and when I realized that it wasn't going anywhere I simply got up and went on DDO for the rest of the night. I was very tired, but unable to get to sleep. And having no debate arguments due, I went on the forums and posted bullsh*t until dawn (like here [http://www.debate.org...], here [http://www.debate.org...], and here [http://www.debate.org...]). During those nonconstructive hours I could have been sleeping. Instead, I conked out at about 11:30 AM and slept until about 3:30. I'm wondering if my recent pattern of sleepless nights has something to do with taking a shower right before bed.

Can anybody help?

Showers before bed can be tricky. They can stimulate you and wake you up a little. But on the other hand, it can be hard to go to bed without one.

Anyway, I would try to be more active during the day, drink less coffee, etc. I noticed that when I lifted weights, I never had insomnia.

Definetely don't take a shower before bed. If you need to take a shower in the evening, space it out to maybe a few hours before you go to bed (i.e. if you go to bed at midnight, take your shower at 10 or 9). Lay off caffeine and the usual stimulants that will keep you up. Then just lay down.
