b/c falling asleep is usually in your head (most likely from anxiety), i just tell myself “you’ll have enough time to sleep when you’re dead”
it seems harsh, but it helps. ppl have a hard time falling asleep cuz they get anxious about it. they stare at the clock and watch it count down, which i used to do.
but as soon as i didnt give a shit, thats when it became easier.
thats why im against the “you must have 8 hours sleep every night…MINIMUM”, cuz then you program that into your mind. then, when you end up only getting 5 or 6 hours, you become frustrated, which maks it harder to get to sleep the next night.
case in point: dont care about how many hours of sleep you get. [/quote]
Out of personal experience i can tell you that part is psychological and the other part is just some type of legitimate sleeping problem. You were right when you said we get anxious about sleep and look at the time to see how long we’ve been trying to fall asleep.
Anxiety also can affect your sleeping pattern along with frustration and any other type of strong emotion that someone is experiencing. I also found out that playing video games for more than 2 hours before going to be or earlier won’t make falling asleep any easier.
Again this is al things that i’ve found out throught my 6 yrs of sleeping problem. That person also said that he wakes up every 2 hrs once he falls asleep, i’m assuming it’s the urge to urinate that wakes you up (at least in my case that’s what happens), if not it could just be that something realy fucked is happening in your head which also happens to me.
Sometimes i really feel something chemical is happening in my head, something is just brewing in there and it’s not frustration…i don’t know what the hell that is but when that happens i toss and turn for hrs bfore finally falling asleep.
Even w/ strong off the counter sleep aid medicine it’s hard to fall asleep sometimes and i still wake up to urinate more than 2ice most of the time. The pills just help me fall back asleep once i wake up.
