Hmm...after a whole summer of going to bed at 4 and waking up at 12 has really caught up with me, and now it's time for school again! During the school year, I always have the same sleep pattern problem. What's a good way to get to sleep fast?

well, i find that the fastest way to kickstart things is to just get up earlier. set your alarm for 11, then 10, then 9... etc. and actually get up; that way you'll be tired earlier. (i know, i know. i never want to get up that early either, but some things must be done.)

as for the actual getting-to-sleep part, i try to relax as much as i can. don't do anything stimulating for about an hour before bed, and get into that "sleepy" frame of mind. eventually you'll fall asleep.

we're just two lost souls, swimming in a fishbowl
year after year
running over the same old ground
what have we found? the same old fears.
wish you were here.
