What type of position do you sleep in? Do you cuddle up to anything or anyone? Do you use something to help fall asleep, like music or having a glass of milk before bed? Do you have difficulties falling or staying asleep?

I generally sleep on my stomach or side. I don't do anything specific to sleep, though. I just prefer it being dark (which is impossible because of my snake's heat lamp).
Usually I'm on my right side (facing the wall) with my righthand arm under me. The other hand is near my chin, under the blanket. I don't even know. >_> I didn't realize all of that until last night.

It depends on my mood but I always start by sleeping on my stomach with my arm under my pillow, then sometimes as time goes by I end up sleeping on my back. When I can't sleep I like to keep my tv on as that always helps.
January 30th, 2013, 08:42 PM
On my side with my arm under my pillow and hugging my blanket.
If I'm really tired or really cold, then on my back in a typical sleeping fashion.

I can fall asleep in any position, but I prefer being on my side or on my stomach. Though I do periodically fall asleep on my back.
The only help I have for falling asleep is imagining things in my head (so I'm not just staring at my ceiling thinking things that keep me awake) and having the quiet noise of a fan. Sometimes, I keep waking up several times a night. I used to have to listen to music, but now I don't need it.
Every day, I wake up asleep on my stomach, my head facing the left, and a Siamese cat sleeping between my legs. http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h229/Hanako_Tabris/emoticons%20from%20LPs/emot-3.gif Said cat stares at me when it's time for bed and she's ready for sleep.

I can only sleep on my side, I need quiet and darkness before actually getting to sleep.
January 31st, 2013, 01:56 AM
Like most, stomach and side. I usually stick my hand under the pillow.. and I also need it to be a bit cold.
Can't sleep when it's uber hot.
January 31st, 2013, 03:07 AM
My sleeping preference:
• It has to be cold, I like to sleep only with shorts (my shirt and sandals near the side of the bed). Warm or freezing cold (below 30 F) makes it too difficult to sleep.
• I sleep on my side, which ever side happens to be darker. Any sort of light will interrupt my sleep, same with noise. It has to be quiet and pitch dark for me to fully sleep.
• I need to have a stuffed Cat plush or a Pokemon plush with me or otherwise I will have severe nightmares. Don't know why, I just do - even if the plush falls on the side of the bed I get nightmares. By nightmares I don't mean monsters or aliens, more of the things I'm scared of (such as witnessing/dying in a tsunami/earthquake/meteor,. Cats, mustelid, or Pokemon becoming extinct. My Grandma or other family member moving away or passing away)

I wrap myself up in a cocoon like formation so that I can emerge like a butterfly when I wake up each day.
January 31st, 2013, 03:54 AM
I usually sleep on my side, and I don't usually do any specific procedures before I sleep.
January 31st, 2013, 08:01 AM
I sleep either on my left side or on my back, whichever feels the most comfortable for me at the time. It has to be cool. Not too hot, not too cold. There can be some light, but these days I prefer it dark. The noise of a fan, a TV with the volume turned down low or some music doesn't bother me as I have grown up sleeping to the sound of them, but I don't require any of them to sleep.

Wait other guys sleep on their stomach? I also though it was more of a girl thing, who knew. But yeah, rarely on my stomach, and mostly on my back, thanks to sleeping on the couch.
January 31st, 2013, 08:15 AM
I tend to fall asleep on my side and I kinda of curl up like a rollie pollie. I keep a pillow between my legs otherwise they'll go nuts so the pillow is kind of a buffer so that they don't start kicking around due to being uncomfortable. idk how it helps, but it does. I have another pillow under my head and then one next to me that I cuddle up with. I keep the blankets over my head as well. And I put on a video to listen to while I try to go to sleep because I don't like complete silence.
January 31st, 2013, 09:12 AM
Also on my side with a hand under the pillow, and I do tend to curl up a bit I think. I just... can't sleep all stretched out, it feels unnatural. I don't do much of anything in the line of "rituals" before going to sleep but I do find it difficult to fall asleep a lot of the time. Whatever time I go to bed at, you can pretty much add on half an hour at least before you get the time I actually fall asleep at. Sometimes I'd go at 2am and not be able to sleep until like 6am, but thankfully that's a rare occurrence.
January 31st, 2013, 10:05 AM
I like really heavy blankets, and it really has to be completely dark. I usually sleep on my side and turn over one or two times and that's it, I don't really do anything to help me sleep. I used to wind up one of those plushies that plays a lullaby but I stopped doing that a month ago haha.
January 31st, 2013, 10:08 AM
It's always my side, so when something happens to wake me up I can bolt in the blink of an eye.
January 31st, 2013, 02:24 PM
I have a couple sleeping positions. First one is laying on my side with my arms underneath my pillow, second one is laying on my side with my arms bent at the elbows and hands rested against my pillow, and third one is laying on my back with my legs folded up against me (half of a fetal position) or my legs are crossed in mid-air.
January 31st, 2013, 03:01 PM
I usually always fall asleep on my side, it's the most comfortable.
January 31st, 2013, 03:17 PM
My friends let me know exactly how I sleep, since I used to sleep on the floor in school all the time during a free. On my side with my butt pointing out. That's me quoting them, for the record. And apparently it's cute. o_o Whatever~
My guess is that I do the same on a bed too, since I never actually pay attention. I do know that I usually make my pillow a comforter at the same time, so my pillow's at weird angle where it's below my head but also also near my chest.
January 31st, 2013, 03:53 PM
On my side in the fetal position, lol. It's just so comfy. I bring the blanket up to my chin with my hands.
January 31st, 2013, 03:55 PM
I sleep on my right, with my legs in a sort of P shape. Sometimes, I lie flat on my back, because of the pain that I got one time.
January 31st, 2013, 06:05 PM
I sleep on my side...and I move so much. Well, that's what my parents said to me.
January 31st, 2013, 07:28 PM
On my face, then on my back.
idk why it's because my face needs love?
January 31st, 2013, 08:09 PM
Always on one of my sides, more often than not with my arm under the pillow. I need to have white noise from my fan, otherwise I go nuts.
January 31st, 2013, 08:46 PM
When I'm at my boyfriend's usually I fall asleep with him spooning me or lying half on his chest, but if I'm in my dorm I'm usually on my side snuggling with a teddy bear the size of my torso. :)
January 31st, 2013, 08:51 PM
My sleep position is on my side -- doesn't matter which one because I turn on each throughout the night -- with my arm that's on the bed underneath the pillow and my free arm can do whatever. My leg that's on the bed is straight and my other leg that's not on the bed is bent at about a 70° angle. It's really the only position I feel comfortable in when I actually fall asleep.
Room has to be completely dark.
The fan is almost always on, mainly because I need to have some sort of ambient noise.
Music is a no-go. TV is a no-go.
I always sleep in either athletic shorts, dorm pants, or jeans and I always go commando when sleeping.
There you go. All you need to know.
February 1st, 2013, 03:12 AM
I usually sleep sideways, sometimes, I sleep on my stomach or on my back. I normally don't move around or make any noises when I sleep, thats why, my friends say I am a good person to sleep with during sleepovers.
February 1st, 2013, 06:27 AM
I usually like to sleep on my side with one arm up under the pillow and the other bent close to my chest, or on my stomach with both arms folded under the pillow and head to the side. I have an air filter thing in my room which is always on, and it feels wrong when it goes off (like a power outage), or just when I'm somewhere where it's totally quiet, though it's not really a requirement for me to fall asleep. I also always have my stuffed camel, Creambo, with me when I go to bed, so I take him with me on vacations and other places I'll be sleeping. There are also some other toys I sleep with, but it just feels plain wrong without Creambo.
I do not like to sleep with TV or music or anything on. It's distracting and noisy to me. I also like it to be relatively dark, but I sleep with a gentle nightlight on. It feels weird to sleep in complete darkness, but I usually sleep during the day anyway..that and my nightlight comes on automatically in dark and my curtains let very little light through.

Surrounded by pillows facing the wall while the tv plays reruns of the office in the backround.
February 1st, 2013, 02:22 PM
Typically I fall asleep on one of my sides; the right is more common but I typically toss and turn and sometimes it's on the left. My right arm's tucked under the pillow most of the time. When I wake up, I'm either on my back or on the right side.
Never slept with any stuffed animals, even as a kid. I need a quilt over me to sleep, though. Even in the summer. :( And I always have a fan running. I should turn it off during the day/when I'm gone, but I forget. It's nice having some white noise when I'm sleeping.
February 1st, 2013, 02:57 PM
I bury both arms beneath my pillow and rest with my face to the side of the pillow, lying on my chest. I'm a very light sleeper; the slightest things wake me up.
February 1st, 2013, 11:26 PM
One leg out
The other bent with my waist to my stomach
However, I have to be facing the right direction or I can't fall asleep xD (I just have to figure out, it's always different xD)
Covered, actually tucked in, blankets swallowing me whole, except head or I'd suffocate xD
Arm under pillow, the other in or out of the covers
February 3rd, 2013, 08:43 PM
I don't sleep any particular way. Sometimes I'm on my back, sometimes I'm on my side (sometimes and sometimes not hugging a pillow) and sometimes, though a little less commonly, on my stomach.
And I do something to help me fall asleep, but it's probably not something one generally talks about in civilised conversation :P
February 4th, 2013, 08:09 PM
I begin by sleeping on my back, but I quickly end up sleeping on my side. I have a futon, so there's only like one good sleeping position. I am never quite comfortable. Yeah, I have one of these silly things (http://www.biglots.com/images/large/20110926-futon.jpg).
I do like hugging a pillow. I like my back touching the back part of the futon and I pretend someone else is holding me. :(
February 4th, 2013, 08:15 PM
1. I move around so much I basically sleep in all of the different positions
2. If it's with my girlfriend we basically end up being in a tangled mess.
3. I too cover myself in blankets like a coccoon, haha.
February 5th, 2013, 02:05 AM
I always sleep in the fetal position. Most comfortable, at least for me.
February 5th, 2013, 04:14 AM
I initially fall asleep on my side, but it gets random afterwards during my sleep. I can sleep in literally any position though, given that I'm tired enough.
I sleep alone 'cause I'm hostile and lonely ;n;, but I need to be really warm.
February 5th, 2013, 06:17 AM
I usually sleep on my side in a fetal like position facing my right with my arm under or on the pillow. And then occasionally I'd sleep on my stomach with both arms on the pillow and head facing to the side. I always have some sort of cover over me cause I'm more comfortable being under a blanket or sleeping bag. If it's hot out it's a lighter blanket and if it's cold out it's a thicker blanket or my sleeping bag.
To help me fall asleep sometime, I like to have some tea or take some medicine before bed, or I'm just naturally tired and just fall asleep without any aids. The only times I have difficulty sleeping is if I'm not really tired to begin with or just had a bad dream , but other than that I sleep pretty well.
February 5th, 2013, 05:12 PM
I sleep on my side, usually on my right side (although I toss and turn enough at times that I honestly lose track of it). I also must have a comforter over me or at least near me - I tend to not have blankets of any kind over me if it's a warm night - to cuddle into. Also, one arm must be under a pillow to prop up my head slightly. Maybe this is why my right arm doesn't like me at times.
No music here, unless it's a night where my mind's racing badly and I need something to focus on. Otherwise, it's far too much of a distraction, especially since I tend to use my walkman and yeah, with the way I sleep I can't fall asleep with earbuds on. At least once I get to sleep, I'm usually asleep for a good while.
February 5th, 2013, 05:19 PM
I sleep on two pillows on my left with one arm underneath the pillows and the other just wherever, most likely splayed out to the side somewhere. I can't sleep lying on my back, or on my right or on my face as I'm unbearably uncomfortable in any other position. It used to be vice versa and I'd sleep on my right side but in recent years that's impossible. My television is usually on because I find it difficult to sleep without sound somewhere around me. Silence is my archenemy. Besides the television the room must be dark. Light doesn't bother me but it helps when there's not too much.
February 13th, 2013, 03:44 AM
My position while I sleep depends on where I sleep. If I'm comfortable with the bed, I'll stick with the basic fetus-like position. Usually, falling asleep is pretty hard for me since I'm always thinking about the things I've done, or the things I will do.
February 13th, 2013, 01:42 PM
I usually sleep on my side cuddling the body pillow named Natasha or on my back. I seldom sleep on my stomach... I used to do that a lot but lately I've found it's quite uncomfortable. I sleep best when I sleep on Natasha, though.
February 23rd, 2013, 09:46 AM
I sleep on my back, but I shift to my sides occasionally while I sleep.
February 23rd, 2013, 02:12 PM
In PJs.. no socks. On my back, head between two flat yet soft pillows, right leg bent slightly :3
February 23rd, 2013, 02:20 PM
I sleep on my right side, usually after turning at least once to each side, and then wake up in the morning on my stomach. I'm a very nervous sleeper.
February 23rd, 2013, 08:35 PM
I always sleep on my right side, with my bottom arm underneath the pillow, and my other arm out in front like I'm shooting an arrow. XD I just don't find any other position as comfortable to fall asleep in. Unless I'm really tired they just won't do the trick lol :3
Yeh I need to be in a quiet, unlit area too. Sometimes I like having the blankets over me with the cold air conditioner/fan running lmao. :D
February 23rd, 2013, 10:20 PM
Usually I sleep on my right hand side, which faces towards the cold wall instead of the hallway outside. My arms tend to move around quite a bit although usually they're on my pillow. Occasionally I sleep on my back although I prefer not to, it just feels a bit weird for me XD;, and I rarely sleep on my stomach after hearing something along the lines of "If you sleep on your stomach you have nightmares." when I was in Kindergarten or something? It was ages ago but ever since then I still believe whoever said that. xD
And sometimes I press my cheek against the cool wall, if it's a hot summer night along with the fan spinning loudly. And usually I can only really go to sleep in a dark or dimly-lit room, otherwise I'll just be lying there all night wriggling around. D:
February 24th, 2013, 12:10 AM
I fall asleep in one of two ways, with the most predominate one (about 80% of the time) being on my right side facing my wall, in a position very similar to the fetal position. If it's one of those nights that take me a lot longer than usual to fall asleep, I'll try sleeping on my left side, with my left arm under sandwiched between my two pillows, and my body stretched out.
I always have to sleep with my blanket on, though. I barely even like my feet sticking out in the middle of summer, so I'll just have the fan blowing on me.
