How Many Hours of Sleep?

Posted 10 June 2007 - 09:18 PM

I haven't been sleeping worth a shit lately, getting maybe 5-6 hours a night. Wake up several times, take forever to fall asleep.

We had a thread a couple years ago talking about sleep aids like Valerian, Ambien, Lavender, Melatonin, etc.

What's everyone do to sleep well? How many pillows? Any pills or potions?

I sleep at 1or 2 in the night and wake up around 8 in the morning...
Take a walk in the night,because exercising , after long hours in front of the monitor helps...

Some say take a glass of milk before sleep ...never tried that..

My advice: Never take any medication to get sleep,you get addicted to it..
My mother has that problem..

I sleep worst when I go to bed because I feel like I "have to"...
You know, when you've got something important the other day and intend to get some more sleep.

Recently, after a party I slept 3 hours and this was the first time I felt myself completely slept off.

So I guess it's not the number of hours that matters. And don't take pills for the reason the guy above me mentioned.

since i came to live with the parents for another summer my sleeping has been terrible.

at school i may not go to bed till way after midnight but at least i got a full nights rest, plus job was a night job so i was pretty much nocturnal.

since being home,
can't fall asleep,
when i do i wake up 3 hours later, almost on the dot,
and that little 3 hour nap doesn't let me sleep anymore,
i want drugs but last time i tried even some tylenol pm,
it made me trip so no longer a fan.

My normal is 5 to 6 hours of sleep.

Curse my metal body, I wasn't fast enough!

slept fine this weekend, but that's a rarity, i'm usually happy if it's 6hrs. My favorite part is when my job breaks the law by scheduling me until midnight one night, and then expects me back for 7:30am the next day... all in all i usually get 4hrs of sleep at best on those nights... caffeine to the rescue

I end up sleeping in till all hours of the day because we stay in the basement and there are no windows. So basically my sleep isn't regulated. For a little while, when it was my responsibility to get my sister up every morning at 6am I had a regular but then my dad stopped traveling and things got fucked up all over again.

Pills never work for me, milk doesn't work. Amazingly enough, caffeine sometimes does the trick and Dayquil. But not always. The only thing that had truly knocked me out was Benadryl that I took when I found out I was allergic to cheap earrings. Best night of sleep I've had in awhile.

I didn't get much for sleep last night, I try to get to bed by 11, up at 6:30.

I have 4 pillows, and a fan, I love my fan.
