Stop doing this to yourselves.
Sleep tight or buy nyquil sleep pills.
Sleep pills put you to sleep but it is not restful sleep. Ive never woken up from having taken nyquil and felt better than just not taking them. Its the worst brain haze.
Get a weighted blanket perhaps.
i will go to bed early tonight… or at least i will try…
i was doing this as i opened the thread :x
yeah no thanks, sleeping pills will literally fuck you up so bad that nothing will fix you.
There are other methods of getting sleep please don't all for the sleeping pill meme.
I read that you're not supposed to do anything difficult or engaging an hour or few before bed, but I like to study Japanese vocab using Anki flashcards. I turn on a dimmer app and a blue light filter, and do cards until I fall asleep. I can always fall asleep in ten minutes now, no problem. It's like counting sheep, but I also learn a little. Full Japanese sentences are too intense for bedtime, especially when I start shutting down, it's too different. But I sometimes do French sentences.
Usually I stop when it's too hard to hold my eyes open for a few seconds and let sleep take me, but sometimes I keep on going. It's kind of funny when I hold the phone too close and it smacks me in the face when I fall unconscious unsconsciously and let go of it.
OP, you've inspired me to try something new. I might make a deck of images, and study them, and see if I dream of them.
