  1. I would like to find some way to create a large and focused amount of pressure on me, usually for sleep but otherwise for relaxing. I want to emulate the effect of a weighted blanket but without actually buying one. I also am rubbish at DIY so I couldn't make my own unless it were very simple. Does anyone have any ideas of some material/s I can get in order to create such a focused pressure that can cover as much surface area as possible? I cannot use thicker blankets because heat is a continuous issue. The heavier the better. So ideally something heavy but spreadable.
  2. Why is it that we don't function as we normally would when first waking up?

    How do you sleep?

    I sleep in the middle of my bed and pull my covers around me till I am comfortable and kinda sleep on almost a ball.
  4. Hey everyone. Hopefully I don't offend anyone in this post. This is my first real deal topic, so I'm sort of nervous. I have always had issues with sleeplessness and nightmares. I am totally terrified of the dark and my thoughts always drift towards negativity once nighttime hits and I'm alone or not preoccupied with something. I was wondering if anyone else here experiences severe nightmares or night-terrors? And how do you deal with them? Also, I was told by a close friend that maybe a weighted blanket would help. I thought about it and I really do think that it would for me. I was wondering if anyone else uses one, or maybe knows if they help with calming down and just relaxing enough to sleep? Thank you in advance to anyone who answers.

    32 hours for nothing :(

    I stayed up and didn't sleep Sunday night and went to bed and was asleep by 10pm Monday night and awake at 7:30 today yet I find my self still wide eyed right now!! So frustrating, I'm tired but just can't sleep or settle! Maybe I should try wearing ear defenders too bed? Do you think that may help? Sometimes I think I shouldn't take my phone upstairs but it's my alarm and I feel uncomfortable without it and it would keep me awake not having it too. It's Christmas this time next week and I really don't want to have a half day or been really tired plus I start work in the new year and need to be able to sleep then!! Any ideas of a solution guys? I can't take sleeping pills as they freak me out and I'm scared of not waking up! I'm already scared enough I won't wake up without pills /:

    Quality Of Sleep

    Does anyone else have problems with sleeping at night ? It often takes me a long time to fall asleep and I have quite disturbed sleep too. I often wake up (half awake and half asleep) and hallucinate in the middle of the night. An example is I will see loads of bugs on my walls or in my bed ro shadows on the walls will appear as people for a split second. I will run outside and then realise I was dreaming and go back to sleep. This can happen to me several times a night or not at all for a month. I think it's related to stress but it has been quite disrubtive over the years. I also sleep much better through the daytime as well (like a baby), sometimes I wonder if I have Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder which means that your body wants to sleep during the day instead of at night. There have been times in my past where I have been nocturnal and my body is always trying to fall into that kind of rhythm (sleeping later, and getting up later). So does anyone else have sleeping issues ?
