I sleep around 10 PM. Sleep comes to me within about 15 minutes. I am told that I do not change positions frequently and sleep like a log. If for some reason I am unable to sleep by 11 PM, I somehow stay awake till 3 AM. I generally sleep on my left side.

I wake up everyday at 5 AM and work out for an hour. After about 12 hours at a construction site (Including travel) I have no energy for anything except sleep.

Hi Killersss, I have found that since joining mylot I have been able to sleep easier than I could before. These days I tend to stay here until I am about ready to fall asleep at the keyboard, and so when I crawl into bed I just sleep regardless of positioning because I am so tired lol. In the past I generally used to have to sleep curled up on one side to be comfortable enough to fall asleep, either that or on my back. I can never sleep on my front though, it feels too odd! I think it used to take me anywhere between 30 mins to an hour as well depending on how tired I was at the end of the day . All the best, Dranz

Hello, I never go to bed before I feel very sleepy. If I go to bed before feeling sleepy my sleep vanishes and I will be just turning sides. Hence I prefer to do some work till I get tired and ready to slep. So usually I go to sleep a little after midnight Have a nice day

hey, i do take a lil time before sleeping. and comfort does matter. even if i washed my hands and feet before going to bed and my they feel dry, i wont be able to sleep until i put some lotion on them. then i cant sleep in just any position. if i was reading a while before sleeping, lying on my right side, i wud have to switch over to my left. and i dont sleep in the same position all night. sweet dreams...

I normally sleep at 2am. Everyday I should do a lot of stuff. So I could fall asleep immediately after I go to bed. When you have a family to take care of, I think you could fall asleep quickly.

Most people's sleep cycle is about 90 minutes so try to sleep in multiples of that - you may find it much easier to get up after 3 hours than after 4, after 4 hrs 30 mins than after 5 hours etc. Coffee stops working after a while. You can put a pot of espresso in front of me and I'll drink it and go to bed immediately and I will sleep. You will find that you get used to being tired, to having a bit of a dull headache etc. Peak performance is indeed redefined - you are happy to just get by a lot of the time.

I usually end up sleeping on my side, but it takes me a long time to go to sleep and now I just go to bed later, because if I try and go earlier I actually stay awake longer, I have found. I wonder if we all do have a default position we always go back to? When I was a baby I was adopted and on the info that came with me there was a note saying I liked to sleep on my right side, which is the same now, which was interesting.

This applies for me too. No matter how much I toss and turn, I can only fall asleep if I'm laying on the right side of my body. And if I happen to doze off uncontrollably, I'll still wake up positioned on my right.

I take a long time in going to sleep, since my head's always buzzing around with ideas, even before going to bed. I usually start facing the ceiling, then go on my side. It's rare that I ever face the pillow and lie on my stomach. Possibly because I can't breathe well like that. Last night I'm pretty sure I had insomnia, so it took me many many hours to sleep. I slept at 3am and woke up at 6am. Strangely enough, I'm not tired right now.

Well,for me,i need change different position and get to sleep also,not becuase I'd like to,but because I feel tired to keep in just one position,and it won;t make me asleep,but I can tell you that I used to get to sleep with the position of ninzgutgqngq as it make me feel more confortable.While,things become totally defferent if I get vevy tired or get drunk before I get to sleep,in this case,i can get to sleep very very soon,especially,when i get drunk,I even did not remember everything I have done in the next morning.

Usually, I will fall asleep quickly after going to bed. If I cann't sleep, I will listen to some peaceful music. It helps me to fall asleep quickly. I think it is a good way.

I go to bed between midnight and 12:30 am. I usually sleep on my side and go to sleep within a half hour after going to bed.

right after taking a relaxing bath, i lie down in bed directly. it usually takes me about 5 positional changes before i finally fall asleep. hehe comfort and relaxation are important for a good night's sleep :)

Hi, at least I need half an hour to sleep. After go to bed, just like you, i keep changing my positions, at last I could find a best position, then sank into sleep. it's strange that the best position is changing frequently. :)

hi there killerss, Actually, I don't find it hard to fall asleep especially when I'm tired. But I usually sleep on my side and I find it to be the most comfortable position and I can breath freely when I sleep on my sides.

I am so turned around with my sleep. I try to go to bed on time and never make it. Then I have to get up early am and feel so sluggish. I feel better as the day goes on therefor staying up late again. The thing is, I am exhausted when I do lay down and I am out the minute I close my eyes. I read somewhere the average time it takes a person to get to sleep is 7 minutes.
