I want to know what puts you to sleep. Do you listen to music? or does a fan or air conditioner do the trick? I knew a guy who couldn't go to sleep without the vaccuum running. I'm sure there's something for everyone!

That is so funny, so would he leave the vacuum going all night long then? I find that if I have a nice hot bath before bed it fully relaxes me so I can sleep much easier. However I have noticed that when I do rigorous exercise during the day I have no trouble in sleeping because my body is tired out. I also like to read a couple of chapters of my latest novel so that tires my brain out and therefore I can sleep well and easily.

apparently his mom used to clean the house at bedtime so the sound of the vacuum kinda lulled him so sleep. I don't know how that works out for him lol

I always have a fan running.....I like the soft hum and since my bedroom is near a busy street it softens the noise from outside making it easier to sleep without the sounds of cars going by!

Most times I do not need anything to put me to sleep, most times I am asleep about 2 minutes after my head hits the pillow. On the occasions that I find it a bit more difficult to get to sleep I just try and think of nice things, things that I want to do, a holiday that I would like to go on or anything that it is calming and that seems to work well for me.

Oh I annoy my partner cos I can not sleep without the window open or if im too hot he moans he is cold all the time. The window has to be open and the curtains open a little too oh and to add to my craziness if thats not bad enough I can not sleep if my feet are hanging out from the bedclothes, seriously im surprised my partner hasnt requested a move to sofa lol

I need to be really warm to get to sleep. I pile on blankets and curl up. xD
