Okay guys I need advice as I have been barely getting any sleep for the last 4 weeks.

I do feel sleep is over rated but I feel like it really is taking a toll on my body! How much do you guys sleep and how do you fall asleep easily?

I have been getting in bed for 11 pm and not falling asleep till like 2/3 am!

I have to wake up for work at 7 am and this is murdering me I have no energy and I feel like a zombie at work.

Has anybody experienced these problems or do you have any techniques that help you get a good night's sleep?

Edit: A friend sent me this link and said the apps have helped him! Has anybody tried these white noise/rain apps and have they helped?

I suffer from stuff like this, but there are so many causes for it, could be literally anything.

Do you suffer from anxiety or depression? Also, did you ever consider that it could be the heatwave thats causing you problems?

This was happening to me for a long time as well actually I was trying to solve the problem with coffee. Which worked for weeks before i had to pay back the lump sum in a gigantic crash.

Nothing works!

Look into what you are doing in the hours before you sleep. Sometimes eating late at night, drinking caffeinated drinks, watching TV or using your computer can disrupt your sleep. You could also look into ways to help you relax, e.g. meditation, light exercise, reading, listening to podcasts, drinking camomile tea, etc. Like the above poster says, also look into your daily life too, as other factors can affect your sleep.

Yeah this is becoming a common problem around here probably due to poor studying habits. Thing is really you should be aiming to get more sleep.
Apps are pretty useful

That is a good idea, I normally come home from work and go to bed after eating so don't end up doing much.

A friend sent me a link that talks about using rain sounds and stuff to help relax and sleep, here is the link have you tried anything like that?

I don't feel like its anxiety or depression! I don't think it is the heatwave either, what methods have you tried? A friend told me he uses apps that make white noise in the background to sleep better

why can't you sleep? i can't sleep right now because it's too dang hot, plus i have generalised anxiety.

i think you can buy calming tea and i've heard lavender is relaxing, but i haven' tried either.

Apparently if you do not fall asleep within 15 minutes of your head hitting the pillow, then you have insomnia.

There are a lot of good tips in this link. You want to make sure you create a relaxing and comfortable environment for sleep. Usually white noise can help people drift off, or you could try listening to ASMR videos.

I’ve tried multiple things. If it’s a noise issue then you could try earbuds or what you just mentioned. You could also try taking melatonin, if it isn’t already, try making your room as dark as possible whilst you sleep

Is there any reason in particular why you might be struggling to get to sleep?

Have you tried any of the tips on the link yourself? Any experiences or reviews?

Breathe very slowly and think about your breathing only. Just your breathing. Although your mind will wonder, be happy you noticed and bring attention back to breathing and focus on that one thing. Every time your mind wonders bring focus back every time.

A lady came to my school and did mindfulness and it’s cured my issues with sleep.

I sleep for 10+ hours.
If it's school period, I'll tell my mind now we only sleep for 7+ hours.

I fall asleep so easily because I'm always so excited to start dreaming. Call me a Psycho or whatever, but going to bed is the highlight of my day every day. You can enter a world of your imagination and do stuff you've always wanted to do.
Dreaming allows me to escape from the physical world to a realm where anything you think goes.












That's why I sleep so easily.

As previously suggested it is very likely to be the heatwave. Our core temperature needs to cool down for us to fall asleep so as suggested a shower would definitely help as well as splashing a bit of water on your face. Have the door and window open and don’t cover yourself in a thick blanket. If it’s still not helping then try not using any electronics an hour before bed, block all light from your bedroom, turn clocks over (stops clock watching), lavender is supposed to be good, don’t do any exercise before bed, maintain a sleep schedule every day, avoid caffeine, don’t eat just before bed, allow time to unwind in the evening, get outside every day, if you can’t sleep don’t roll around in bed do something like read or whatever helps u relax and if u do use ur phone or laptop late then use the night shift thing. You can probably find loads more online but heat is definitely a big factor especially given the timeframe you’ve mentioned
