How do you sushi rolls go to sleep fast or at a reasonable rate? I've been trying to get a better sleep schedule, but a problem I've run into is that it can take me 1-2 hours to go to sleep. I know it sounds insane, but I can't fall asleep at a normal rate.

I've sleeping 20 minutes after getting off electronics. It helps, but it isn't enough. Any tips?

 No.8681

Meditation works well for me.

Also a tip: if you can't fall asleep within ~30mins, get up and do a light task for a few mins. Then go back to bed and try again.

Sorry to hear it sushi, that can really make everything worse in life. I used to have that problem a lot. I think a lot of it was stress/anxiety that i don't have as much of now due to a different situation, but i also found that getting physically tired by exercising at night was good - going straight from that to the shower to bed. I know for a lot of people that makes it harder, but it's probably worth a try.

 No.8683

Same situation as you. I've found that laying on my back and not moving helps. I'm guessing it puts your body in a sleeping mood, at least it feels like it with how my arms and legs numb. Besides that, I also try to think about something specific, kind of like counting sheep but better. It could be anything really, just something to take your mind off of sleeping.

I wouldn't worry about it sushi. In this modern world, everything has to be productive. You sleep, you wake up, you work. What's wrong with a couple hours of rest? It takes me even longer to sleep. I like to take a melatonin, do some reading or writing, and masturbate. If that doesn't work, I usually just stay up doing whatever or lay there until I sleep

Just like how people say pissing in the shower can lead to bedwetting I avoid lounging on my bed except when I'm ready to sleep. When the day felt unproductive I also feel compelled to mindlessly browse the internet so I divert that into a journal entry or some ramblings on a blog.

 No.8712

I don't know where you live and what the weather is like, but I find that if I spend an hour or two out in the sun doing some physical activity, I usually sleep quite well that evening. Exercise a few hours before bed also helps.
Otherwise if I've been inside in front of a screen all day I have trouble sleeping.

I open youtube on my phone and put on one of those 24/7 deep sleep music streams and it helps easy my wandering mind and lull me to sleep

Sleep at a fixed time. Do it!

 No.9488

I'm blessed in that I seem to fall asleep almost instantly, but here's things you can try that should help:

* Don't use your bed unless you are sleeping. Do everything else before going in bed, so your brain realizes that bed = sleep.
* No coffeine within the last 6 hours before you wanna go to bed. Same goes for black or green tea.
* No bluelight within the last 1-2 hours before bed if anyhow possible. This includes no phone in bed or shortly before falling asleep.
* Go to bed at a fixed time, even more important: Wake up at a fixed time. Even if that means 1-2 days of feeling like shit you will start getting tired earlier.
* Make your bed comfy: Change sheets regularly, buy good pillows.
* Consider meditation to learn how to turn off (or at least reduce) thoughts in your head.
There's two ways that people seem to like to fall asleep: Either meditate and try to take away all your thoughts, or do a "dream vacation". Try to vividly and intensely imagine your body getting heavier and heavier, first the feet, then the legs, then the arms, then everything. Then create yourself your ideal chill resort. Imagine the vegetation, the temperature, what you like about it. Then stay in there to fall asleep.

I recommend

an hour before going to bed.
A bottle of beer also works great to calm me down.

Otherwise I just relax in bed, instead of forcefully trying to beat myself to sleep. Think of the time you spend with falling asleep as already a part of your resting hours.

Sometimes I imagine myself to be in a tent on a snowy mountain, in an oasis or a medieval camp, on a space ship or a bunker. This really helps me to appreciate my soft blanket and pillow.

A case of beer is OTC Ambien.

I solve simple problems (tsumego mostly) in my head and try to remember everything I did that day. Usually I fall asleep. If not I put on some music and read a chapter or two of some manga or book.

Just another sushi echoing the only use bed for sleep sentiment. I mostly fall asleep instantly.
The tip I have that I don't see in the thread yet though, prepare for bed early. If you start brushing your teeth and all that stuff when you're getting sleepy and yawning, by the time you're in bed the sleep train has already left the station and you're better off doing something else until the next train comes around rather than trying to force it and creating associations between bed and tossing & turning.
If you're already prepped you can just get under the covers as soon as the drowsiness caresses you.

It's been kinda hard for me to fall asleep sometimes lately, I always feel like I'm being observed or that I'm going to get jumpscared.
The other night it took me an hour to fall asleep because of the fear. I tried doing something I read about keeping my eyes open until I fall asleep naturally, but it only made me more paranoid, as I saw moving things through my peripheral vision. Thankfully, it was a every once in a while thing and it hasn't happened anymore up until now.

Does anyone else experience hypnic jerks? It's an involuntary muscle movement akin to a seizure when you're on the edge of sleep – to me, it kind of feels like I'm falling off of a building or the edge of my bed. They're completely normal, but people don't tend to talk about them.

Sometimes I imagine random scenarios in my head when I can't sleep. It's unconventional, but for whatever reason that makes me incredibly tired.

Yeah! It usually happens when I am right about to fall asleep. I feel extremely cozy, I start thinking about something and then… BAM! I think of something hitting me like a train and I snap back where I was before; on my bed, awake.

It doesn't happen often. Even tho it isn't really a dream, (sorta) I keep that event in my dream diary.

same. There're nothings what can disrupt my sleep. But I can't still get into.

But yea. throw away electronics like smartphone is really helpful while I don't have a phone lol.

I guess ADHD makes me annoy or be suffered by thoughts. Thus, this make me not to focus on sleep – to focus on many things that contains informations can make a flood

 No.14172

I've started thinking about, like, the content of the working memory at the time of sleeping. If I just go right to sleeping my mind will be full of thoughts and plans from the day, and that's usually a recipe for focused thinking that keeps me up. So I'm trying before bed to wash out the content of my mind wwitha bit of music and anime or manga. Cgdct works best. Soft thoughts that dont keep me awake.

 No.14177

Yeah it's best to go out and look at the sky for half an hour to an hour before going to sleep. Or something, the point is to go without stimuli for a while.

Sleep was comfy last night! I thought about transcendental functions and cute girls while falling asleep. (A perfect combination imo) and when I woke up I got up right away rather than lying in bed (which I've struggled with and am improving). I'm happy! I hope someday I can have a schedule staying up and sleeping whenever I'm tired, but for now I'm really happy with my progress towards feeling comfy in a normal sleep schedule!

I just upgraded from the twin-sized spring mattress I've owned since childhood to a king-sized foam mattress. Still no bedframe, but even just laying it on the ground is a far more comfortable experience than my old spring. I can finally stretch my full body, it's wonderful.

I've suffered from intermittent insomnia for a long time. They had me on thc oil and all kinds of things but I think a lot of it is having a bedtime ritual. I read manga or a book before bed, put a little lavender oil under my nose. Sometimes when things are bad a piece of toast.

I can fall asleep pretty easily, but I also wake up easily since I move around a lot. Especially on my old tiny bed, since I would often roll right off the bed to a rude awakening. Now, on my big new mattress, I can roll around as much as I please. Feels great!

Time for lucid dreaming…

 No.16851

For a while I've been using melatonin but recently it's been giving me particularly deep and disturbing dreams so I've stopped. I've found that if you get some exercise, eat okay, and manage the light you're exposed to at night, you will actually get tired and be able to sleep. I say this as someone who has had pretty awful insomnia in the past.

It's usually a simple problem to fix. And I do mean simple, not easy.

I don't have anything specific I do to go to sleep. Not sure if I like staying up or if I just don't like going to sleep, but I'll tend to just keep going until my body is completely exhausted. Then I just need to put my phone down for 10 seconds and I'm out.
