How to stop viewing sleep as a chore?

Hey all, how can I stop seeing sleep as a chore, as something I have to do, instead of something pleasant or that I want to do? I think part of my problem is I tend to view sleep as an obstacle getting in the way of the things I wanna do. To me it's a waste of time. Another issue is that I never really know what to do with myself once I'm lying ...

Why do I sleep better on the couch than in my own bed?

Hello all, I hope this is the right forum for this! I don't know whether or not you could say I have insomnia, but I do find I have an easier/better time sleeping on the couch than in my own bed. But why? What is it about the couch that is better than my bed? Is it the mattress or my pillow? Is it because there is less pressure to fall asleep when I'm lying ...

Hi. Just joined.

This is my first posting. I've always been a light sleeper. I'm going to jump right in here if that's ok.

New Member with Question re: Is this a form of Parasominia?

Good morning. I have just found your website after days of searching for an answer about an activity I do as I sleep. I am a 58 year old female with severe sleep apnea. Currently being treated again after 7 years, with very poor results to date. With the help of another forum things are looking up a bit.

However, one thing they have not been able to figure out is the following:

When I ...

Benefits of Listening to Sleep Meditation Music

Unfortunately, not all of us can fall asleep easily. And I'm one of them. Every night is a battle for me just to get a good night's sleep. I didn't know what position I would take just to sleep.

I didn't believe it at first, but music works. Maybe for some, it may take a while before it works out but it all worth it eventually.

Here are some of the benefits of listening to ...

I have had insomnia now since I was 12 and am coming to a few conclusions. I rather think the creative brain may not help - I'm an author, poet and musician and just cannot switch off, ever, it seems. Ideas, thoughts, material; all swirling around and making it impossible to think of anything else or go to sleep until it's written down.
Also, my father's job. He was in rather a dangerous profession and ...

Hi there everyone and thank you for reading. I am desperate for help!

I have chronic insomnia and OCD linked to bedtime rituals.

Can hormones be a cause of insomnia?


I’ve been struggling with insomnia for over 10 years. I’ve recently decided to try to tackle my sleep problem due to having a 10month old and not wanting to be medicated anymore.
I’ve tried it all (sleep hygiene, meditation, herbs, relaxation, CBT, healthy eating, exercise, and prescribed drugs)
I’m currently trying light therapy (blue light blocking sunglasses at night and bright light sunglasses in the morning) and sleep restriction although it is hard it’s ...
