How can I fall asleep faster?

Report as

Study botany or business law. Works for me every time. Also dont look at a tv screen, computer screen or mobile device/ phone for at least an hour before you go to sleep. If you use computer etc use a blue light filter to reduce the white light emitted from those devices which mess up your circadian rhythm, and trick your brain into thinking it needs to wake up when you really need to sleep.

Hit the gym daily, problems falling asleep take a sleeping pill or something to knock you out, but mainly start working out since you'll use a lot of energy and then get tired after and fall asleep faster.

Drink warm milk, put on relaxing music and close your eyes. Don't leave your tv on if you have one in your bedroom it doesn't help you to sleep. You could also try drinking chamomile tea.

You may think that staying up late will help you, but in the long run, its just MORE unhealthy. You need to make sure that you eat early, do some work, and go straight to bed. If you sleep better in absolute quiet, make sure its absolute quiet. If you sleep better in a bit of background noise, let that happen. Experiment a bit and see what you end up liking. Try that for a while, and see how it goes. Good Luck!

An hour before you usually go to bed get a book and read. Or do something calm like play on your I pad or something you can do in bed. That should tire you out so you can fall asleep faster or just let your worries go.

What I do is i exercise before I go to sleep. I go running with my dog, and then get home (If running is not your thing, that's cool, just do something.) Then I obviously get in the proper attire and brush my teeth. I make sure my room is cold, and that I have warm blankets. I turn on some relaxing music of sorts, and then snuggle up in my blankets so I don't freeze to death, (It's the comfiest feeling ever, actually)

really try relaxing your body and mind,try to keep the room completely dark and allow yourself to have preparation time for this before actually going to sleep.

maybe 30 minutes to and hour.

the idea is to try to ease itself into relaxation and inactivity.


some physical activity during the day might also help but this I think has to be done hours before trying to go to sleep.

you can try it, keeping in mind it's just my hypothesis for how to sleep better.

Take a nice hot shower before you go to bed. You might want to try some p.m. medicine. So warm milk can help. Read about thirty-five minutes. After you do that, relax the body and mind by thinking of nothing at all. If you want to go a sleep quicker by relax your body, make sure that your pets; if you have any; are not complete white because they are crazy at birth and they can keep you up, so have them away from you or outside as far a possible.

What helps for me to fall asleep alot faster is playing my favourite type of music, also not to think about anything that happens in the day, because it worries me, makes me stay awake and be more stressed, for some people it helps to listen to rain music or just ocean sounds, as silly as it sounds some people find it soothing. Before you go to sleep try not to do alot or you'll be up, all awake and ready to do something!

Absolutely do nothing. You just have to develop a habit into sleep earlier. I set my alarm clock at 10:00pm every day. A while before, I couldn't fell asleep as well. I just kept going to bed as soon as the alarm clock rung. And only a week later, I began to get used to sleep at 10:00pm. The first few days, ,I couldn't fell asleep as well. But now, as soon as I hear the alarm clock, I fell sleepy. And soon after I go to bed, I fell alseep. It really works our. Have a try. :)

If you're religious,then just have a long prayer session. I usually go through a list of things I'm grateful for,and eventually I fall asleep. But if you're not,count your blessings,or even though it might sound weird,have a conversation with yourself in your head. It really works!xD

Dim the lights maybe an hour before bedtime, then make sure your bedroom is dark and cool. The body makes a natural hormone called Melatonin to help you go to sleep when it gets dark. If you still have trouble sleeping, consider taking a Melatonin supplement about 20 minutes before bedtime. This is a natural sleep promoter. The usually recommended dosage is 3 mg. If that doesn't work, try 5 mg. But don't go any higher than that without talking to your doc. If you have any kind of medical condition ask your doc first to be sure it is ok. As people age, our bodies produce less Melatonin, that is why adding this supplement at bedtime helps a lot of people. It is also used by people that work night shifts and their circadian rhythm (body clock) is messed up. People traveling across time zones and have jet lag also use Melatonin to help reset their natural body clock and get to sleep.

One good option is do a long tiring physical exercise or go for 2-3 km walk in evening. It helps to bring sound sleep.
Many essentials oils also work for this. One method is to put English Lavender sachet or two to three drops of essential oils under the pillow. Otherwise, mix a few drops each of Lavender and Clary Sage essential oils, spray on bed linen to ensure blissful sleep.
