Hi everyone! I have a habit of listening to soothing music whenever I lay on bed waiting to fall asleep. It's like a lullaby for me. I like listening to love songs and hum a little while on bed and just fall asleep soundly with the music still on. Then when I wake somehow I would notice I find myself more lively and rested well than just sleeping and not listening to music first. How about you guys? Any regime or habit while waiting to fall asleep?

In junior school,my English teacher let us listen to English for 30 minutes everyday,to improve our English.And i always listen to English on bed when i finish my homework and prepare for bed.Then i will fall asleep quickly.Because listening to English is so boring.haha~~~This is a bad habit. And now i will read novels while waiting to fall asleep.Sometimes i will choose to listento music.

You mean you use to listen to a recorded lecture? Hmm.. thats new to me. But it would really be boring if all you can hear are conversations. Novels are good. It can also help improve our vocabulary. Thanks and keep posting!

Not recorded lecture.It's just conversation.So it's so boring,but it's really a good way to let you fall asleep fast. Now when i'm in English class and my English teacher say English all the class,i always want to go sleep.haha~~

I check my cell phone and set the alarm clock on it. I arrange my pillows and when I lay on my bed I will embrace my big pillow and begin reminiscing a lot of things like happy or sad moments.until I fall asleep..

Hi friend! They say when you think of things and fall asleep thinking about it continues in your dreams. When I bethink of events or moments that has happened sometimes I can dream of it. Do you experience that too?

Yes it happens sometimes, that's why I want to get tired and fall asleep as soon as possible so I will never think anything before I sleep.

Hi there iskayz! I do listen to soothing music at times. Instrumental music never fails. Sometimes, I would watch TV until I doze off. Most of the time, I pray until I get to sleep. There are times when I have difficulty falling asleep. When this happens, I pray that I get to sleep soon as I need to wake up early the next day and the next thing I hear would be my alarm clock.

Hi there! I'm lucky that I don't have to wake up early everyday. Cause sometimes when the music is really good I don't get to sleep easily cause I kept singing singing hehe. Ciao!

Hey iskayz, its a cute question~~ When i was a kid like 6 or 7 I always tried to scratch my mum or grandma's armpit, i dont know why, its just a feeling i addicted to.lol.. of course i gave up this weird habit since i gradually grow up. But after i bought a cute bunny doll to sleep beside me, I just cant sleep without it. you know, to get rid of one addiction, the best way is to get addicted to another.

What a very wierd and funny habit you have! Scratching armpits hahaha. When my brother was young he wants his head being scratched until he falls asleep. Yes its true. You have to find a new addiction to get rid of the other. But as long as its a cute habit, I think its ok. Keep hugging your bunny!

Well you're surely doing a good thing, praying. That's good! Others just fall asleep and forgets to pray. Me, I try to pray my novenas earlier before going to bed. I have noticed often times I fall asleep easily while praying and not finishing the prayers. Thanks for the response!

Hi! Reading is good too. Sometimes I read too and answer some crossword puzzles. But you're right, sometimes if the book is good I don't want to sleep yet until I'm finish. Thanks for responding!

Sometimes I will turn on my play-list and listen to that all night. If I am laying down, I will twitch my feet, and I don't realize that I am doing it until I am in the process of it. I also think a lot, and it takes me a while to get to sleep. I don't even know what I think about, really. When I get into deep thought, I will start drifting off and eventually get to sleep.
