      YouTube asmr, the app “loóna”, or meds. Alternate trazodone and unisom cuz I get a tolerance. Melatonin does not work for me

      The headspace or calm apps are great 😊

      I realized I couldn't sleep because I distracted myself from my issues all day and had to think through them all at night. Now I give myself a few hours, usually while I'm eating, to think about what's happening with my life and it's helped me fall asleep in half the time

      Me too. I use amitriptyline occasionally and that helps a lot. Other than that I use CBD or THC and listen to some relaxing music and snuggle with my dog until I fall asleep. The hardest thing that helps me the most is when you can’t sleep DO NOT open your phone and go on the infinite scroll… I’ve stayed up till 3 am on accident just scrolling and scrolling. Instead of using my phone which is a struggle sometimes I will put my attention on my dog, or just watch my axolotl vibe in the tank until I get sleepy

      I use an app called loóna it has coloring, stories, and music. It helps to relax me and the stories are interesting

      I’ve been struggling with this more recently too but for me taking melatonin, listening to calm music or guided meditations, smoking weed, reading, and doing yoga/stretching are some things that have helped :)

      Guided meditations, podcasts, music without voice (like video game music or instrumentals) reading, audiobooks, basically anything that produces sound I can focus on instead of my thoughts.

      I have found I like listening to voices. Either a guided meditation or a book on tape or a quality podcast. It’s like being told a bedtime story. Most apps have a sleep timer on them. For supplements I like to drink OMG Magnesium like an hour before bed.

      Melatonin helps me, but I also sit on FaceTime with someone and they’ll end the call once I fall asleep been doing it for a few weeks now and it has really helped me.
