I was addicted to melatonin for a year or two and couldn't sleep at all after I developed a tolerance to it. Now it's been a while since I've been off of it and I sleep like a rock. I wouldn't mess around with pills and unnatural stuff. That said, you can use magnesium in powdered form in a glass of warm water before bed. You cannot develop tolerance to that as far as I know and it really helps me chill before bed.

Bit of soft classical music helps. Or other quiet music (no vocals) played quietly. One tune that helps is `The Homecoming` by Hagood Hardy.

i recently started listening to binural beats. I let them play in the background [not to loud] and lie down, focusing on my breathing and relaxing my body from my feet to my head, I think it's called progressive meditation

Knowing that I don't have to get up to an alarm and I can sleep until I naturally wake up has helped with my sleep tremendously.

the most important thing for me is locking my bedroom door at night

i have really bad helusinations, and it just reasures me- if something did try and actually get in, it can't anyway because the door is locked

Thanks for the recent advice. I'll definitely look into the progressive meditation

Your body temperature drops as you fall asleep, so it might help to increase your body temperature for a better rest. Some people recommend to take a hot bath or shower, but this never helped me because I would always feel cold afterward...

And then this winter, I bought a space heater. I keep it on my feet when I get cold. It's usually on the highest heat setting, and it works really well... too well. I find myself getting too warm sometimes, and it makes me really tired. This thing has made me so tired that I would actually take naps, and I'm not a napper. Now I have to turn it off when I start to feel too warm.
