Do you have to have certain pillows or blanket? Certain clothes or temperature? Do you fall asleep easily?

I can't sleep in many clothes, if they get twisted, I can't stand it! And I must have a blanket on me. Even in the summer. And when my mind is racing, I have to replay a story in my head so I can finally fall asleep.

My pillow has to be the right amount of squishy. The room has to be cool so I can snuggle under blankets, and I can NOT fall asleep in socks.

Our bedroom is in a walkout basement now and it's dang cold down there in the winter. We currently have 2 down comforters and 2 quilts on there and I still feel cold.

Next to SO! For warmth! Lol.

I love having the blanket folded in between my legs or pillow works too.

And one funny thing i hate a pillow under my head! Use to sleep with two pillows under head so dont know what brought that change on!

I will usually law on my side and fold pillow up against my chest and lay on that sides arm elbow bent above my head. Like above when i cant sleep i have to replay a story in my head too! Lol funny but it works! Itll take my mind of running thru diff topics keeping me up at night!

I have to have nice heavy blankets- just a sheet keeps me awake for hours.  I also love having my body pillow.  I sleep au naturel, and I love a cold bedroom (helps with the heavy load of blankets!).  I fall asleep pretty easily 90% of the time, especially when I'm exercising regularly nd eating well.  I can tell when I've been slacking in many ways, and sleep is one of them.

I fall asleep pretty easily...with sheet and blanket on me.  I like it cooler too!

I have to have clothes on.  It can be simple shorts and a tank top, but I have to have them.

I prefer a blanket, but since we have a newborn, we've been keeping the apartment alot warmer, so sometimes it gets way too warm.

And I don't fall asleep easily at all.  I'm hoping now that I'm starting to work out, even if it's just the little bit, that I will start falling asleep easier.  Generally, though, I take something, at least on the days I have work.

Right now on my side with pillows all around me and between my legs because I'm 40 weeks and 1 day. Its hard to fall asleep so I have to daydream. That seems to help.

I like to have heavier blankets.  I sleep better when it's cooler for sure.  65* is the best!

I do not fall asleep easily unless I'm on the couch, lol

It takes me awhile to fall asleep at night because of a certain phobia that I have :-/

I forgot about my pillow. I have had the same pillow for years. It's perfect and just the way I like it. If I ever go out of town and forget it, I can't sleep!
