That happens to me 😀😂😂😂 Like, we never know the moment we actually fall asleep, I can only feel myself slowly falling LOL
It takes me around half an hour, but on some bad occasions it takes me up to 3 😅
Escape, when I was a little kid I was into reading. My mother is an avid reader, she used to bring books from the local library for me to read. I would read every time when going to bed.
One time, when reading one from the Harry Potter saga, I had closed the book because it took more effort to actually keep my lids from closing than reading the book.
Escape, I don't remember how or why exactly. Probably doing other things instead of reading. Today for example, instead of reading, I'm on my computer at 23:46 and I'm going to have trouble sleeping because of staying on a screen all day long
I always try to think to positive stuffs, like in a dream.
If I had enough money to buy the flat or the house I would like, what kind of flat or house would I buy?
Same for a travel, or anything else I would like to have, to do, etc...
These kind of positive thoughts are enough to make me dreaming and sleeping.
🍼🏍🔥Garsbriel❓, ohhh, nice! Sometimes I manage to fall asleep by strongly imagining how I would design my own house... I get into a lot of detail so my mind focuses on that instead of my worries or anxiety LOL
I am dreaming about aliens, different kind of creatures that are only come to my mind before sleep, sometimes listen to music or ocean/thunder sounds, and about movie or books that have influenced me in some way, and very rarely but compose some music in my head 😀 Most of the time the inspiration finds me exactly before sleep 😀
Close your eyes. Breathe in 4 seconds and hold it for 6 then exhale for 8. All while thinking of your feet starting to become weightless. With that weightlessness drifting up through your legs and all the way up to your head. Imagine water flowing like a river through your body and poof you're asleep :)
I have big problems with these moments.
But I heard of the relaxing and sleepy making efect of drinking chamomile tea. You dont realise it by just drinking it, but if you cant sleep and drink some good amounts I feel the difference :D
Sorry I missed this before it expired. I often fall asleep by reading Sola or some other web forum. Or by listening to radio. And sometimes just by lying down and closing my eyes. I do something to get my mind wandering. It might be by thinking about the melody of someone's music or by some interesting idea prompted in an online conversation, or just my own reverie. Once my thoughts start to drift I'm off to dreamland.
