Going To Bed

When you go to bed do you go straight to sleep or do you read a book/magazine or watch a bit of television? I do both. I like to read a book as it makes me fall asleep and I always have the television on in the background and that is usually Price Drop or Big Brother now that it is back on again.

it depends! if it is still early for my bedtime, which is 11pm, i still have time to browse on some books or magazines. there are also times when i really like the book that i am reading that no matter how late it is already, i still find time to read it. on normal days, if its already 11pm, i'd surely be sleepy and on my road to dreamland.

Yes I know what you mean as sometimes I am too tired to read so can fall asleep more or less straight away.

I usually fall right asleep; my bed is so comfortable and my days are usually so tiring, I can't resist. Nowadays, though, I leave the music playing on my computer's speakers. It helps me sleep better.

Yes most nights I fall asleep straight away too, but hate those nights when I am so tired but can still not fall asleep.

I usually go to bed after watching tv.I have a habit of reading books but i don't read it at night since some books are very interesting i can't get it down.It makes me sleep very late at night.I get a good sleep reading my college books.I think boring books are a good medicine for sleep.

Yes good books can be hard to put down, but my eyes will start closing so I have no choice lol.

Lately, I've been leaving the tv on as a background noise when I try to go to sleep. The volume is usually just low enough to hear it. I set the sleep timer on the tv so that it won't wake me up when I actually get to sleep.

I used to set the timer too but never do now so usually ends up being on all night or hubby will turn it off.

I usually watch a bit of tv, and often fall asleep while it is still on.

Yes I usually fall asleep with the television on too and either husband turns it off or it stays on all night.
