    RE: take 5 hours to fall asleep

    The most obvious response is to use in-bed relaxation methods, which can range from the age-old counting sheep to more elaborate progressive muscle relaxation combined with deep, diaphragmatic breathing.

    That said, probably better to identify the underlying reasons why your sleep is disturbed. There can be a variety of causes, but for those causes that are nonmedical (bad sleep habits, excessive worry), you can try CBT sleep training programs. They are the gold standard.

    RE: take 5 hours to fall asleep

    hi peter7890, to add to Morpheus15's comment, which is great, maybe you can : try to write down all the things you're thinking about or read a book. You can also try some natural products like melatonin, which can help you to fall asleep. I tried it and it worked the first time (sublingual spray, better effect than pill).

    Hope this will help you!

        It’s a great idea. Let me know if it works. If you don’t know a place to buy melatonin (sublingual spray), dm me.

        Just make certain it is not clashing with any meds you may be taking.

    Melatonin is an easiest way, but also you should care about sleep hygiene.

    Hi Peter,
    Newbie here. Hope your sleep has improved by now. If not, what I found helps (besides the usual you've heard), is ASMR. There's a ton on You Tube. Find the one(s) you find soothing & relaxing. Just plug in your headphones and listen rather than watch the videos. Your mind should drift off. Hope it helps!
