Default Cant get to sleep

If you have had a stressful day, and you want to sleep but just lie there, tossing and turning, eyes wide open, how do you finally find a way to fall asleep?

I'm up to chat about anything!
Hit me up!!

I have problems sleeping sometimes (a lot times). Tbh, I don't even know how I deal with it. I throw some slow music on sometimes... close my eyes and count the sheep, count my breaths, in out type stuff.

All you can really do in the end tho is just close your eyes, clear your mind, and relax

If I get stress and can't sleep, I will masturbate it usually makes me sleepy afterwards. I don't know why but it does.

I usually watch an asmr video when I can't sleep but want to. Heather feather is a good YouTube to start with if you've never watched asmr before

Try slow breathing and lying still. I find that focussing on clearing my mind makes me too conscious of it and makes it harder to get to sleep.

Think of something you enjoyed doing during the day and keep replaying it in your mind. And I agree with Shamal too; concentrate on slowly steady breathing.

I read a book (a TEXTBOOK!!) so that I will slowly fall asleep because who says textbooks aren't boring?? I also watch movies/tv series and I usually fall asleep in the middle of the video so that works for me too.

I go on here sometimes or read. I am aloud to drink at home by my parents so a lot of the time I have a couple whiskey Cokes while on here or watching TV. I realize that is definitely not for most of you younger people but I am just being honest what I do.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

If I can‘t get to sleep, I just get up and go to where my computer is. Then I sit there on the LinusTechTips forum talking with people for a few hours and get sleepy.

Hi, I'm Jamie. I am open to talking, so message me. I have 69 computers, and I use them for cancer research

1. Melatonin is a medication wth very few side effects identified. It is supposed to make you sleepy. I have never tried it, but 3,cousins use itt & have had extremely good results. It comes in nasal sprays, tablets, & even gummies. Did not see your age, but it might be a good thing to discuss with them.
2. Masturbating? Many males get very tired after masasturbation or sex, & drift off to sleep more easily afterward.
3. This one might sound screwy, but works best for me. It is a bit of relaxation techniques combined with guided imagery.

For me, that relaxation in your situation means mentally instructing each muscle to relax & waiting a few moments before moving onto the next muscles. I lay ok my back & start from my scalp & work down to my toes, talking slow,deep breaths. This should take about 10-15 minutes, but Yogis make it last for hours.

The guided imagery part is fun. After the relaxation part is fun. Since I feel lifeless, I guide myself toward an image of me flying. Not sipping around like Superman, but hovering so special event in my life. Example: my dad bought me MLB baseball tickets a few years ago- just dad & me. We had a great time. So, I might decide to hover over the stadium, watching the game, but also finding my dad & I, with our third based tickets. I mentally "watch" as much as I need, then fly home- of course my body never actually left the bad. I'm sleepy, full of ballpark nachos, hot dogs & such. Then I drift off to sleep.

My point with this llooonnnggg story is that your mide can do amazing things, it you allow it to do so.

Sorry for the long post. If I can help by providing detail, By PMing you through one of these experiences, just PM me.

Take care,
Elmoc

I always try to have a cup of tea before bed because for some reason it relaxes me. Idk if that would be very helpful to you, but I thought it was important to say to stay away from the computer screen when you're restless. Something to do with the lighting fucks up your Circadian Rhythm, and some devices come with the option to turn this aspect off.

Honestly, when I can't sleep I try and rub one out, and that'll do the trick for me

Masturbaing certainly helps - hormones released at orgasm give you a relaxed sleepy feeling.

Also, don't expect miracles - it takes time to wind down from being active to being asleep so it can help to start that wind down even before you are in bed by switching off the TV/laptop/phone/tablet and doing something you find relaxing.

Also, if you drink anything with caffeine in: coffee, tea, coke, energy drinks etc. don't drink these in the evening - stick to the morning and afternoon.

Yes. If I can't sleep, I masturbate and try again. Usually I fall asleep much easier then.

Not easily. Sometimes I'll read or play Minesweeper on my phone. If I'm in a bad mood, I listen to Rufus Wainwright's album, "Poses".
