Pretty simple question... how long does it take you to fall asleep? And if it takes forever, what do you do to make you fall asleep better?

I normally just put a fan in front of my face and... well... Zzzzzzzz...!

About 5 minutes to 10 minutes on an average day...

tho sometimes I will be awake until 3:00 am staring at the ceiling until I get sleepy

November 2nd, 2007, 5:04 PM
xD It takes me a very long time. 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours maximum.

Yeah, it gets annoying sometimes, but I usually have a lot on my mind before I sleep.

600th post! finally

Ya I know what you mean, it takes me foreer to fall asleep. It's always at least a half an hour and if my body knows that I don't have school tomorrow it refuses to fall asleep even if i have to get up early.

My problem is I'm always thinking and I don't give myself a chance. Nothing really helps me, just if I can get focused and stop thinking so hard, I can save the world issues for the day time.

Takes me foreverrrrrr...

Yeah I've been having sleeping problems for 3 years now. I used to have a jewelery music box and I'd play that to help fall asleep but it got broken... Nowadays I just cry myself to sleep and occasionally stare at the ceiling or do homework.

It can take from 10 minutes to 2 hours for me.

November 2nd, 2007, 6:30 PM
Depends on the weather if its during winter I can just sleep straight away but during summer time usually 10 min to half an hour, right now according to a specific someone I've been suffering from insomnia for the last few days but I guess thats over now since I have no trouble sleeping last night.

November 2nd, 2007, 6:31 PM
a long time :[
I'm quite the insomniac at times
usually it takes me about an hour+ but, I get into these ruts where for say...2 or 3 weeks I'll get virtually no sleep. it'll take me a minimum of 2 hours every night, and when I do fall asleep it's not a deep sleep, and I wake up 3ish times a night

November 2nd, 2007, 6:37 PM
Depends when I go to bed, if I go to bed (3am-5am) then it takes me less than a minute to get to sleep. If it's normal time (11:30pm) it usually takes about 10 mintues.

November 2nd, 2007, 6:40 PM
I am an insomniac of some sort. Bed at 10:30 P.M., fall asleep at 11:50 P.M. - 1:00 A.M.

I had problems sleeping last year so it took me at least an hour most nights, but ever since school started I've been falling asleep instantly.

November 2nd, 2007, 7:03 PM
It used to take like,the whole night fer me to go to sleep x.x Now I like get sleepy right when it turns dark,I swear xD

November 2nd, 2007, 7:31 PM
Unfortunately, it's usually only tem minutes for me. I like to stay awake and think/listen to music since IMO sleep is a waste of time.

November 2nd, 2007, 7:32 PM
I swear it takes me forever to go to sleep, I'm one to always have a lot on my mind and process anything that's happened and if I've done anything wrong how can I correct it etc. Even when I'm really tired it takes me a long time, it can actually be quite annoying. >_<

November 2nd, 2007, 7:56 PM
takes almost of half a hour for me. meh....

November 2nd, 2007, 11:52 PM
It depends. Sometimes, I fall asleep fastly, but other days, specially weekends, it takes me a lot (an hour or so) :\

November 3rd, 2007, 12:06 AM
It all depends on how tired I am, and if I have anything on my mind at the time. If I'm really tired, then I'm usually out within maybe twenty minutes at the most...however, there are times when I just haven't been able to sleep for whatever reason, and those times will take me hours to finally relax.

(And those times seem to be on days when I should be waking up early enough in the mornings, anyways. Go figure.)

Whenever I'm being fidgety about sleeping, what I'll tend to do is just eventually force myself to relax, and/or maybe try concentrating on one thing and only that one thing. I've noticed that tends to help me finally get to sleep.

November 3rd, 2007, 12:07 AM
It depends on how tired I am. XD; (Is there an echo in here?)

Generally I watch TV for a few hours before finally falling asleep pretty easily. Naturally though, sometimes it takes forever, if my mind is wandering or whatever. :[

In those cases I get something warm to drink (decaf tea, usually) and just wait until I get tired enough to fall asleep.

November 3rd, 2007, 12:27 AM
Ummm.......it takes me an average of 10minutes,
When iam tired-5minutes
When im not sleepy-45 minutes(at max)

November 3rd, 2007, 12:56 AM

I also have Insomnia it sucks I know, but I usually get 5-6 hours of sleep or less a day. There are some days that I don't sleep at all.


November 3rd, 2007, 5:50 AM
I go to bed between 10 and 11. I am normally up till gone 12 texting my GF. I do sometimes fall asleep while texting if I am really tired. XD

November 3rd, 2007, 6:20 AM
When I fall asleep depends on the environment and what time I got to bed. The things that I have to have on before I go to sleep though are my bedroom light and the TV. My bedroom light has to be on because I have claustrophobia, but I'm fine if I can see the exit. Since the room gets really dark I won't see the door and I will eventually have a panic attack. The TV acts as an alarm clock for me so that I wake up at 6:00 AM, since any normal alarm clock doesn't wake me up at all.

If my room is comfortable and it's around 10:30 I'll go to sleep in like ten minutes, but anything past 12:00 I'll go to sleep in a minute and won't remember where I fell asleep at (I'll think I fell asleep in the living room but I'll wake up in my bed) and going to bed that late usually results in a nightmare.

November 3rd, 2007, 8:05 AM
It normally takes 3-5 minutes until I fall asleep.
When I go to bed, then I'm always pretty tired and can't let my eyes open.
Although I like staying awake and think about things and the next day -_-

November 3rd, 2007, 8:23 AM
It depends. Sometimes 5 minutes, 30 mintues, and very rarely an hour.

November 3rd, 2007, 8:48 AM
It depends on how tired I am, too. If I'm really tired, it won't take that long at all and I'll sleep through the night.

However.. if I'm not really that tired.. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours. x-x It's annoying. And the longer it takes, the more times I wake up in the middle of the night.

November 3rd, 2007, 8:51 AM
Anywhere from maybe 10 minutes to an hour, although usually more towards the hour end. :/ It really sucks when you go to bed at 2 but don't fall asleep until 3...

My friend told me that he falls asleep a lot quicker when he has a go at himself beforehand. Just let everything go and tire yourself out. It should work or so he says.

Piggedy Pig: *nods*

Piggedy Pig, you little tosser!
'nyway, it can take me from ten minutes up to an hour to go to sleep! When I have a lot of things on my mind, or just watched a scary movie, it takes me a lot longer to drift off to dreamworld.

November 3rd, 2007, 12:14 PM
used to take me a few minutes. lately it takes forever! sometimes hours!!!

it can take anything from a few minutes to a few hours. if i am really tired, its only a few minutes, but sometimes i cant get to sleep, so it is usually a few hours.

November 3rd, 2007, 3:12 PM
The longest time it's taken me to sleep is probably an hour or two, but it usually takes me about 10-15 minutes. XD

November 3rd, 2007, 3:17 PM
A solid 25 Minutes, I just so lost in thoughts when a lay down on the bed, even if I'm tired D:

November 3rd, 2007, 5:40 PM
Cold weather - 5-15 mins
Hot weather - 40mins - 2hrs

Cant stand the heat. If I have a fan on, i wake up with hayfever.

It takes me like an hour to fall asleep

It only takes me about 2 or 3 minutes to fall asleep usually. But last night I couldn't sleep because the dog was barking >.<

November 3rd, 2007, 10:38 PM
A pretty long time, unfortunately. I'm usually too busy and stay up extremely late doing something else, and when I go to bed it just takes me forever to find sleep, even if I am extremely tired.

November 3rd, 2007, 10:41 PM
depends. if im tired-five to twenty minutes
if i'm not tired-half an hour to an hour
if i'm busy thinking-all night >.<

November 3rd, 2007, 11:30 PM
It really depends. When I'm really tired, or if I'm ill, I fall asleep within five minutes. But most of the time, it takes me a while (say, an hour) to fall asleep. So I pick up the nearest manga, and start reading. That is not to say that reading makes me fall asleep (well, depends on what book), but I guess I never really have anything better to do.

November 4th, 2007, 7:35 AM
Approximaterly 2 hours :P
Sometimes more, sometimes less.

I'm very bad at going to sleep. I just can't keep my mind off things, thinking of all the things that happened that day and what might happen the next day.

November 4th, 2007, 7:41 AM
Hmm, Maybe 3 hours before bed? I have Insomnia...even if i don't drink Coke before I sleep.
The Weird thing is, I fall asleep after I read books, and I love books o.o

November 4th, 2007, 5:56 PM
Very random, sometimes the average 7 minutes, others like 1/2 to 2 hours, and sometimes severe insomnia that lasts a long time but it's never been cased for more than 5 hours (unless i stay up all night... which i did once playing Neopets with an african or something XD) and it must happen in the worst cases, once before a TAKS Test but i never failed them. Luckily it never happened before Soccer Games, phew...
