Does it usually take you less than 15 minutes to fall asleep at night, or more?
My dad can fall asleep before he hits the pillow and you will be able to tell because he snores as loud as ... something that snores loud.
Like 2 hours every night.
Now that I voted less I'm going to have a hard time falling asleep tonight haha.
Again, I highly recommend breaking out. You will experience a higher quality of life.
Thats just like me
exactly my life!
Make more $ and fall asleep faster? if you make 100k+ you don't have that much trouble counting sheep?
I've never been able to fall asleep easily, not even when I was a baby. I'm so jealous of my friends who can lie down and fall asleep, then wake up early and be totally awake and ready to face the world. It takes me, on average, probably about an hour to fall asleep, and waking up is just... no.
I've always had trouble falling asleep, even as a kid. Unless I'm exhausted, it will usually take me 1-3 hours to fall asleep. AKA: I don't sleep much. But napping, that's very different. If I decide to nap, I'm out like a light. Usually that's because I'm exhausted though.
It used to take me a long time to fall asleep, but ever since I started to get so much homework that I have to sleep at 00-00:30, I can fall sleep in a few minutes.
@cornybread, I'm with you on that! Comfy bed. Everything's better in bed.
Are you on Instagram? You need to look up my daughter, @_prettyful_. You two have a lot in common, from reading your comments over time. I am putting this on an old thread in hopes of not bothering anyone on a more current thread. If you look her up, tell her I sent you. I've mentioned you to her.
I lay awake with all electronic devices off for an hour or two before i can sleep usually.. Unless im exhausted which isnt often because im lazy and dont really do anything to make me tired:/

I can fall asleep in under 15 seconds
And yet, you're spending it on an app. Way to grab life by the horns.
The only way I'll fall asleep within 15 minutes of getting in bed is if was asleep on the couch moments prior.
This is literally my answer to almost all of life's questions
All the dirty hippies in Vermont and you can't find some weed? Get off the dangerous drugs for your own benefit.
And women should only take half as much as a man.
This was not a question to think about when getting ready for bed. I was awake most of the night!
depends how much Ambien I take. did you hear about the new study that says you can't take Ambien and then drive a car safely 3 hours later? scandalous!
god, i really wish I could sleep in both of those places...
same with my cat. she just curls up on my bed and snoozes away for hours. you can wake her up and she'll just put her head back down and go right back to sleep.
I like to be cozy when I'm playing with my phone! where do you think I am right now? I'm laying in bed!
It's -1 minute then!
About 4 to 5 hours before you go to bed. And actually moderate exercise has shown to be more beneficial according to this article www.insomnia-free.com/exercise-and-insomnia-can-you-move-your-way-to-better-sleep.html
Less if I smoke some weed. Otherwise it takes about a half an hour to settle down.
I read, watch TV, work on a puzzle till my eyes are tired and I yawn like crazy. Soon as I get up and go in my bedroom (has to be dark and quiet) and lay in bed I wake up. My head won't turn off. I think of EVERYTHING under the sun, toss and turn, then fall asleep after at least a hour.
Wow!!! Less than 15 minutes
I think my problem is my brain goes a million mph thinking about things I should be trying to solve during the day.
I have a sleep disorder, I can fall asleep in less than 5 min. I am also very active (running, strength training, cycling etc) and only time I sit down all day is for the 5 min it takes to shove food down. Sometimes I don't even sit down to eat.
I WISH I could fall asleep inside of 15 minutes. I can, but man do I have to be exhausted! Generally takes me about an hour +/-, but I don't consider it to be too great an issue.
I'm curious, does WHEN you exercise seem to make a difference? If so when seems to be the best time?
Sometimes she is bitching about that. I start mumbling cause I just wanna go to bed and she gets all pissed off cause I don't wanna talk.
Just pound one out.
I don't lay down until I'm ready to fall asleep.
The bed is for sleeping and when you bring other things in like electronic devices... You'll never fall asleep!
I think it's a VA thing. :-)
That sounds like a good trick. I can see why it would be so relaxing. For me, it would be a beachfront hotel in Mexico with the balcony doors wide open and the sound of the surf outside. See? I'm all relaxed now, just remembering it.
I've been trying to fall asleep for the past three hours.
This is why you're going to be successful. Most teenagers slack their best years away. Great job and keep it up!
I wish I could be my dog sometimes. This question could read 15 SECONDS and the answer would still be "less" for him.
Wow. Your sleep issues are probably more severe than mine. A simple app works for me, and I think anymore would be overkill. If it gets any worse I'll definitely check it out.
That's supposed to say "ready for bed"*
Sager, I replied to you, but apparently I accidentally attached it to the comment just *above* the one I originally wrote here.
My problem is that I don't like to sleep at night. If I tried, I could sleep quickly. But I'd much rather stay up and watch a movie, do my homework, or text a friend. And then I'm tired the next morning and promise myself I'll sleep early, and then I find another interesting movie on Netflix... :/
I'm asleep in about five minutes. I do muscle exercises tensing and relaxing muscles and I'm asleep in no time. If I'm really wound up I pray for everybody I know and while I am strongly agnostic when it comes to religious ritual and dogma I don't let that stop me during our 1 on 1 time.
I'll sleep when I'm dead. Time now is for LIVING!!!
