    I Have No Self-Discipline When It Comes To Sleeping.

    Sleep… I've had 20+ years to get it right, yet I still feel that I may just need lessons or something. I've never met anyone with sleep habits more random than my own. Though, I should probably mention that I have a chronic illness. It's not so much an excuse really as it...

    These past three to four months, I've slept like I used to sleep when I was 10. Before that, it used to be 4,5 hours every day.

    Falling Asleep Yet?

    I thought I was gonna fall asleep the other day after 30 hours of being awake, but then after thinking it would happen, I stopped- well, falling asleep. I've read about and watched programs on so many methods on getting to sleep, but when I try them, I either find they prolong...
