I am just being curious of what are the things you do at night that you cannot sleep without doing it. This discussion is somehow non sense but this will give you to think of what are the things that you should do before sleeping. Let me share you some the things that i do before sleeping. The first one is I cannot sleep without cleaning my body. I feel so dirty if I am not cleaning my body each night. I don't feel comfortable sleeping. Another one is that I can't sleep without seeing my updated earnings here in mylot.Even its already 11 in the evening, I still wait for my updated earnings. These are just some of the things that i can't sleep without doing it.What about you, what are the things that you do before sleeping?

I can't sleep unless there's a fan on because I need the "white" noise. I also can't sleep unless I know the dishes are done and the house is pretty much picked up. I know, that's weird - but I can't help it! I also need to hug a pillow . . . even though it ends up on the floor every night.

I too sleep with a fan. It's not just the white noise, though I like that, but I need the air blowing in my face at least to get to sleep. The other think i need is my down pillow. I can't stand the synthetic ones. They just don't fluff right.

Before I go to bed, it's already my routine to take a quick shower and brush my teeth. Then I will fix my things for the next day of work at the same time I'm watching television. After I finished fixing my things, I will turn off the the light and still the TV is on. I will lye to bed and I will cover my body with a blanket. I can't sleep without a blanket covering my body even if it is hot or summer season. But before doing my before bed routine, I will check my emails and my earnings here at mylot and also responding to the discussions that catches my attention.

I can not sleep without covers, I have to have covers even in the summertime. I can not sleep without a night cap on my head, hair all over my pillow and on my face drives me crazy when I am trying to sleep. I can not sleep without warmth, I like to sleep in a warm room.

Hello rberon1985! I can't sleep without my cellphone beside me. I always want my cellphone to be with me because I don't want to miss if my husband will call me. Sometimes, he called me late at night because we have a different time frame.

Hey, Yep I also can't sleep if I don't do what I have planned. One thing is that it is hard for me to go to bed if I hadn't done either my 50 posts with over 130 words per response or 100 posts with only 50 words. I just can't sleep if I don' do my daily MyLot routine lol! Happy MyLotting!

Well, rberon these are the things that I can't sleep without doing. I make sure the dishes are done before going to bed. I clean myself of course just like you. I make sure the gas is locked and the lights are off. I make sure everything is in order. And lastly, I cannot sleep without first visiting mylot and writing a few posts.

Before sleeping, i will take a glass of water, and prepare another at my bed, which i will take if i awake in midnight. And again when i get up in the morning, one more glass of water. Water helps digestion, helps circulation, especially important for elders.

Hi Rberon, interesting discussion you have started! Well, I can't sleep without taking a cup of coffee, and then reading a book. I actually read until I sleep.

I cant sleep, unless i am sure that nobody will message me some important news in my cellphone. I make sure that i check my mobile before going to sleep. I cant sleep also unless my son is still awake i always make sure that before i go to sleep, he is sleeping too.

I cannot sleep unless the closet doors are closed. It's not a fear, more like a pet-peeve of mine. Oh and I definitely can't fall asleep without my Ambien, lol.

Hi, I can't sleep without washing my face, putting carmex on my lips and moisturizer on my face.But before I do those things I get my b/f lunch ready and anything he needs to take to work. I never did that stuff for my ex-husband but my b/f doesn't expect me to do that for him so I don't mind doing it.

I cant sleep without drinking some water sometimes. Some times I just cant sleep. I can sleep while the fan is over me while I have a blanket on, I dont like the habit because its really a waste of power. I can sleep after I eat, but then then the food wont go down all the way. I just cant sleep without having a problem with it. Sometimes I sleep just like that no problem, I wish to know how I do that but not sure.
