I'm using this app now. I'm often tired but it seems my sleep is better than I thought.
I haven't tried the Skarsgård option yet kek

I sleep pretty well. I hear people all the time talking about how they can't sleep at night because there is too much going on their heads and how they can't switch off. well my advice is to fantasise about something, something really nice and pleasing. get caught up in all the small details and enjoy it. when I used to wake up from a nightmare as a kid my mum would say 'just think of something nice instead' and I guess it stuck? it works for me mostly and I find I drift off quickly.
I also used to keep my light on at night since I used to associate the dark with having panic attacks but a few years back I bought a philips hue light and I program it to slowly dim the lights over a 30 minute period at around 2 am. that way I can go off to sleep with some light in my bedroom but the light will turn itself off and save electricity.
people talk a lot about sleep hygeiene and using the bed just for sleep but I do everything in bed. right before bed I'm usually on my computer and it doesn't seem to negatively affect me. I would just say to all anons who do similar, make sure you use a program on your computer or phone that turns the lightning on the screen a more amber colour as opposed to a blue. I used to use flux on windows, and mac has one built into the settings. belive me, it'll really help!
Oh I've seen that chart before. It's not a biphasic sleep cycle like the one in the chart, where the secondary sleep period is much shorter, because both my sleep segments are roughly the same length.
I've always wondered if that Uberman sleep schedule is even sustainable. Or healthy in the long term. Any info on anyone that's ever tried it?
I had terrible time sleeping in my teenage years. I couldn't sleep because i was nervous, restless leg syndrome, i heard voices sometimes(like a crowd of people speaking directly at me, but i didn't understand them because they were all speaking at the same time for several hours),i was never comfortable probably because i was very boney…. million problems. I started the journey to better sleep. I tried some pills (no prescription, i wasn't allowed), i bought window blinds and i started to learn lucid dreaming. Because i was dedicated to lucid dreaming, a lot of other brain abilies opened up for me which i'm very grateful. I did get my brain better over the years, but it is also because i got less nervous as an adult. The voices dissapeard luckily and i slept moderately good for some years and i still do.
Two years ago i had a sugery and they put me under full anesthesia. Since then i have hypnagogic hallucinations - visual hallucinations before sleep. I see people or insects in my room mostly, sometimes some strange shaped stuff. I get scared for a second and then i realize it's not really there. It doesn't prevent me from sleeping and being ok,so i don't really mind. But it's interresting that anesthesia can cause this.
These days if i feel like i will have a little sleep because my brain is too fired up from doing something before, i take cbd oil. It works much better than the pills i had. I wish it existed when i was a teenager, it would help me so much. But back then nothing like this was sold.

I honestly sleep well, i daydream before going to sleep and I end up not reaching the good part of my daydreams, so I guess it takes me like 10 minutes at worst when I’m uneasy or something like that.
I honestly think that getting a body pillow would help me sleep better, lately I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night, probably because of stress, so maybe having something nice to hug at night would help me feel more comfortable.
My other issue is that I either sleep on my side or on my belly, so I end up waking up feeling sore, but I’ve read that hugging a long pillow helps, so I might do that.
I’m glad I’m getting a new bed soon as well, my old mattress was uncomfortable as hell.

Three things changed my sleep forever:
1.) Sleeping on my side cured sleep paralysis. What a nightmare that shit was.
2.) Body pillows. Other anons mentioned them already. As a side-sleeper they were a godsend for me.
3.) Hydrate. If you’re not incontinent you won’t piss the bed so load up..
4.) Temperature: mixing and matching a thin quilt and an insulated comforter to never sleep hot or cold.
It’s four things
>>210629>1.) Sleeping on my side cured sleep paralysis. What a nightmare that shit was
Been sleeping that way since childhood, hasn't changed anything>3.) Hydrate. If you’re not incontinent you won’t piss the bed so load up..
I do this all the time and it actually makes it harder to sleep since I have to get up to piss every several minutes.
Diff anon but I had sleep paralysis once in my life, was laying on my right side one moment, stuck, and the next I was out of my body and in some parallel space with a demon in front of me lol
I've vaguely heard that it shouldn't even happen on your side… I was nervous to look it up and verify that. If it does happen on your side too then I'm kinda relived to learn that.
Anyone else have difficulty with their sleep schedule only in the days before their period? I have a decent schedule after years of struggling but the 2/3 nights before I'm due it goes back to me being wide awake half the night. No cramping or anything. Just awake.

I'm not getting good sleep lately, I'm feeling very anxious and stressed because of exams. I usually daydream in bed to distract myself but not even that is working. However, something that did work one of these nights was colouring a children's book I had laying around. I really recommend it to everyone but I personally can't make it a habit because it'll lose it's effects. Some nights meditation works, other times it's reading, not using the phone hours prior to going to bed, listening to rain/water noises, doing yoga, listening to a sleepcast, etc. I feel like I have to figure it out every night.
I'm hoping I can stop overthinking sleeping so much as soon as I start being out of my house everyday (everything is still virtual) and I start doing a sport
