i know i'm not alone on this.

i've just been having such a fucking hard time sleeping for at least the past year. i sleep 8,9,10 hours and i still wake up feeling exhausted, drained and unrested. it's just a grind being like this every day.

and on top of thatm, recently my brain started going into party mode when it's 11pm and i end up going to bed at 2-3 am. this is getting out of hand really fast so i'm going to try to get to bed before midnight tonight i guess.

kindly share your tips/solutions/similar experiences

and yes i know this is like the 14th thread i've made this week but fuck you guys and this board is pathetically inactive anyway

Don't worry about it. What's helped me is more activity, less alcohol, a better diet, and Flonase, which has gotten rid of my apnea enough for me to get 6-8 hours and wake up and stay awake. I know hat's not too impressive in general but it is for me

my best advice is if you're having any sort of mental instability whatsoever, be it sleeping problems or just occasional intrusive thoughts, stop drinking cold turkey for a few weeks and see how you feel. Drink plenty of water and do intense cardio as much as you can

Ever try the http://sleepyti.me/ method?

I'm always a little skeptical about that sort of thing, but an acquaintance swears by it and the one time I bowed to peer pressure did at least appear to produce results.

yes not to sound like an ass, but not getting stoned and/or drunk every night will make a vast, vast (vast!) difference

im with killtrocity on this --

yes it is "dumb," obvious, and unappealing advice

it will also offer dramatic, observable reward in perhaps all areas of your life, very quickly

Get more sun and less screen time and avoid lights close to when you're going to bed

what's confusing to me about this though, is that i've been fucking around on the internet before going to bed for as long as i can remember. so it sounds unlikely that THAT would be the problem. i mean it sounds plausible, flickering screens etc, but it never caused problems before so why would it now

Stop drinking, you drink so much
Don't smoke, you always smoke
Stop hanging around with crickets or cockroaches, they are bad influence (b/c blithely nocturnal) but you love to hang out with them, so you are prolly fuck'd, sorry
So simple to fix your problems man, but you won't, so

I nearly always feel exhausted whether I get 4 hours 6 hours 8 hours or 10 hours, but I do second the suggestion of intense exercise, especially cardio, which seems to help a little bit for me.

i've never tried weed before but i bought some cbd oil in a shop last year. it seemed to help with general mental health stuff. thank god that's illegal now eh

no matter how much i exercise in a day, i "forget" about it by nighttime and it doesn't seem to affect my sleep at all

i take benadryl every night to sleep. it works pretty well

Teh b0lly on a more srs note: i've been dealing with insomnia most of my life. exercise helps. a long walk (one hour at least) after dinner used to do the trick for me. but when you're engulf by worry or anxiety or guilt etc... you just have to wait it out. sometimes its sheer exhuastion that breaks my insomnia. every once in a while i get 10 hours of sleep and its. glorious.

I know weed makes it hard for a lot of people to wake up feeling rested the next day, and I did used to experience this... but I haven't smoked in over 2 weeks and I have seen no change.

for me, the correct time seems to be about 4 hours before bedtime. I've heard that exercise at night will keep you up, but I like to go run a mile or so and then do some weights and shit in the gym room in my complex sometime between 9 and 11 PM. Then when I am ready to crash at usually around 2, I feel tired.

i wake up every 1-2 hours. the idea of even 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep makes me weep

How many hours do you get in total each night? Does it take long to fall asleep?

I hate functioning on little sleep. And since March or so I wake up to use the bathroom anywhere from 6 to 3 hours after falling asleep and immediately i start stressing and over thinking and no more sleep. :(

reprise85
07-04-2017, 10:08 AM
it varies a lot. usually, it doesn't take that long to fall asleep. and i go back to sleep fairly easily after waking up. as for total... sometimes i get 3-4 hours. sometimes i get 7-9. it really depends what i need to do the next day

Do you feel rested? When I wake that often I don't feel like I'm getting the sleep i need..

I just slept 1700-2100 and 0100-0500. Feeling pretty good.

reprise85
07-04-2017, 12:11 PM
most of the time i feel rested. but i think i've just forgotten what feeling really rested is like.

i understand that people sleep through the night because i used to once in a while. otherwise, i wouldn't even believe it. sometimes i can sleep for 3 hours straight if i'm taking a nap and am really full. and it feels glorious. and i remember when i started sleeping more like crap, once in a while i'd have a good night's sleep and it'd be like whoa that was awesome. i wish i could take a benzo once in a while and have a good night, but of course i can't have them for my own good

i rode a stationary bike for 5 miles today followed by .75 miles running. and two supersets on machines. for those of you who don't know, a superset is an exercise (10 to 15 reps) followed directly by another (10-15 reps) and that essentially counts as one set and you repeat that "set" 3-5 times.

since most of you proposed propositions that would have made me actually go out and do a bunch of shit and stuff, i tried buzzard's suggestion, of attempting to time my awakenings at the end of sleeping cycles. there does seems to be some improvement! i'm still exhausted as fuck but at least getting out of bed is somewhat easier

i slept pretty well last night. i think i had a solid chunk of 3-4 hours in there. or at least i don't remember getting up until like 4:30 am and i went to sleep about 12:30-1am. after that i got up like 3 times tho
