    Up until 4-5 years ago I could break records for sleeping but that has changed.

    I typically get up around 8am but go to bed around 2am. I've realised that I just don't need a lot of sleep. Now if I were to go to bed at 11pm I'd wake round 4am. So I go with what my body tells me. Anywhere between 4-6 hours is enough for me. We are all different. :wink:

    My Mother who is an extremely young and healthy 71 year old typically sleeps 10 hours every night. My Father is an equally fit and healthy 73 year old only manages 5-6 hours sleep.

    I think we are brainwashed into thinking we all need 8 hours sleep a night. We don't. Some do and some need a lot less. Just listen to your body. If you can't sleep just get back up and do something constructive that you have been putting off. I catch up on our account often in the middle of the night when I can't sleep.

    Luka, how much do you normally sleep?

    I do a little 15-minute yoga set if I have a notion I'm going to find it hard to fall asleep.

    Most of the time, it works very well.

    I recommend it.

    Well a sleeping pill chased down with a shot of Grand Marnier really works wonders, but something that works just as well is having a warm glass of milk with honey, and then lay down and put on quiet soft music and think about all of the people that you have ever loved in your live and why in order and you will be sleeping like a baby in no time.

    If you were working the fields in the third world for 12 hours a day you'd sleep!

    Luka's job is better, he works a busy corner :tongue: :biggrin1:
    (and he still isn't tired, maybe he needs to get back out on the corner...)

    I jack off. That usually puts me to sleep. Something about cumming makes a guy sleepy - maybe the release of all that tension.

    Orgasms not pills.

    Eight years ago I would have said, 5 mgs of Klonapin with a chardonnay chaser. :rolleyes: These days I'm a fan of hot cocoa with mini marshmallows, Trader Joe's Bedtime Tea with a dash of cream and some honey, or I play Bejeweled 2 on my cell phone. I think the flashing lights help to sedate me. :smile:

    5. play with your nuts
    6. watch tv
    7. turn on the air conditioning really cold - you'll sleep better if you are shivering cold and need a blanket

    Read a philosophy book or something that requires you to think. Lights out in about 10 minutes for me.
