I don't know about the rest of you, but i'm rather fond of sleeping; as a student, i don't usually manage to get a whole lot, though. but i'm wondering, how do you guys get to sleep? has anyone actually tried "counting sheep" (or some other barnyard animal)? has it worked for you? do you just kind of settle down and lose consciousness? for my part, when i lay down to go to sleep, my mind usually races around with no particular place to go. i think about things i did during the day, things i wished i'd done/said, a homework problem i'd been trying to solve before going to bed, and so on, heck, i was trying to get to sleep when i had the idea for this thread. lately, i've been having a good bit of trouble getting to sleep. i think it might be because i'm often rather hungry before bed, but i'm not sure. also, i sleep on my stomach with my head turned to one side or the other. how do you sleep?
