Another thread from the old site! By 'sleep ritual' I mean the routine you go through each night to help yourself drift off. Examples would be one comedian I listen to who says he imagines himself as a sniper, wrapped up in blankets, or my mother who doesn't "visualise" anything but has to lay in a specific order of positions before she can start sleeping.
When I was a kid, mine used to be that I'd run a continual story through my mind until I fell asleep, adding a new chapter by the night and picking up where I left off. I even did it a little up until my late twenties.
It's kind of sad that my ritual now is just staring at my phone for 20 minutes longer than I intended to...
I don't really have a specific ritual. Normally by the time I stagger to bed I'm so tired that I drift off fairly quickly. Sometimes I wish I could be one of those people who could take themselves off at a reasonably early hour and get a proper night's sleep, but my mind won't allow it.
Does falling asleep regularly on the sofa under the cat count? Sofa, inane TV, cat... it's a lethal combination.
I use a sound machine now as my neighbors below are a bit loud in the wee hours of the morning. So that goes on, and then I also put on a subrosa album. By then, I'm fighting the cat off to get into bed and under the duvet. Baal usually curls up in the crook of my arm. Then... sleep.

I have wicked insomnia lately (go figure, the kids all finally sleep through the night and I still can't sleep)... My routine usually involves beer, and reruns of a favorite show... Then I can close my eyes and still "see" what's happening in the show, and fall asleep to it. Smoking works really well, but I tend to have a harder time hearing if the kids wake up.
Slightly embarrassed saying this, but I make up little stories in my head. It helps give shape to my dreams and I am a lucid dreamer. So not only do I remember my dreams, but I have more or less control over them as well.

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
