What helps you go to sleep?

Recommended Posts

So, is there any routine that helps you go to sleep?

 

What I've been doing lately is listening to Ray Lynch's "The Oh of Pleasure" a few times before I go to bed, and a few times I set it on autoplay while I sleep. I never really had heard of such a relaxing song in my life.

 

Here is the song:

That's really it.

Listening to some Rock and Metal helps me relax then it makes it easier for me to go to sleep peacefully. That's the way I do it.

I pretty much cry myself to sleep every night...  I usually listen to audio books (right now Star Wars the Last Command) since I can't sleep in complete silence. I sometimes listen to music but with music in the background I end up thinking a lot about different things as my mood changes with the music.

First of all, I listen to some music, usually violin related. Next, I lie down in bed and find a comfortable position. Then, placing a pillow over my head so that I block out all noise and possible light. Finally, I think about my favorite fanfics about MLP or my own story and I'm asleep before I know it.

I lay in bed and watch youtube videos on my phone like Pewdiepie or Markiplier and then i close my eyes and think of something like me meeting Pewdiepie and then i would have a lucid dream of what i was Thinking :D

 

I always have lucid dreams but i have to try and not think of something scare Or something dirty XD

Eating toast and peanut butter. It has been a part of my evening routine for at least 12 years now. Reading books is a good pre-sleep activity, as long as it's a real book, not a glowing screen.

The best thing I have found yet is having a small adorable happy kitten purring next to me. Something about a purr that makes me so sleepy....

 

 

 

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

Listening non-aggressive music, drinking hot chocolate with a small sip of malibu rum mixed in, and watching some fail videos on YouTube! ^^

Usually just thinking about my day helps, not really much to think about yet it's something. I usually lucid dream, so I usually think about cars. I often go on the forum right before I go to sleep. I guess, I just try to relax by thinking about stuff. So thinking is the best way, imagining how I would have done something differently or just thinking about what I'll do tomorrow. It can either prevent me from sleeping or help me sleep. Most of the time it helps, I don't have a routine like listening to music or something like that.

I love to do some meditation before I go to bed I find it to be extremely relaxing and calming. When I've that I'll just relax and watch something on YouTube with my phone until I fall asleep.

Generally I feel very sleepy even, but what helps me sleep are the songs I hear, like Evanescence or Era. like: Bring me To Life from Evanescence and Ameno from Era. Sometimes i listen Dubstep to dream with a pony battle.  B)
But now I'll be seeing what is going on the internet

I have a classical playlist I built to listen to before I go to sleep. If I intend to nap, I lean back in my chair, close my eyes and let my music play quietly as I fall asleep. Sometimes (truthfully, many times) I also brew myself a cup of tea to help me relax before going to bed.

 

Pachelbel's Kanon in D is deadly in this regard. It nearly always puts me to sleep when I reach it on the playlist. Sometimes this backfires though when I choose the wrong music to play. I once woke up to Moskau blaring full blast.

I usually listen to music, progressive rock, until I feel sleepy.

And it works really well, I can now fall asleep at around 2 in the morning, two hours earlier than before.

I am one of those people that just can't go to sleep on whim I NEED to be tired, this usually leads me to staying up late and then this means I'm usually tired when I wake up the next morning. This means I normally have 7 hours sleep a day (totally fine :D) and then I make sure I get a lie in one day a week to catch up hours I miss making myself tired :P

 

Apart form that I often watch youtube in bed and listen top audiobooks if I can't get my brain to turn off!

Normally I go on my Ipod and go on YouTube, I also read comic books when I buy them from Manchester. I also started collage last week so I normally read books I have to read anyway.

I just watch Youtube, listen to music, or mess around on these forums until I'm to tired to even function. I have to do this almost every night because I just can't automatically fall asleep.

If I just want to take a nap, I'll usually read something mildly interesting. Not too interesting to where I will keep reading but interesting enough for me to want to read it.

 

If I want to go to bed, then it's ice cold Mountain Dew. It calms me down and I'm out in a few minutes. Did I mention I have ADHD? 'Cause that's kind of important.

I usually need it to be dark and quiet.  I'm not one of those people who falls asleep watching TV or listening to music.  I've had my own bedroom my whole life so maybe I'm used to quiet.  I also need to be on my stomach most of the time, maybe occasionally on my side, but never on my back.  Having more than one pillow and not eating right before bed also helps.  I'm a kinda picky sleeper, unlike my bff, who can take a nap whenever and wherever he wants.

I usually just get in my bed, wrap my self with my blankets, get comfortable, and close my eyes. My mind then begins to think about a great deal of random things, which leads to me to drift off into sleep.

Mainly white noise, that always relaxes me so I like to either have a fan on or a white noise generator. The sound of rain also helps a lot. I have a noise generator for that as well. :P

 

Beyond that...uhhh....a comfortable bed.
