What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?
I think it kinda depends on the day I have had and how tired I am. Mostly I do need to feel really tired and sleepy to just lie in bed with the lights off and close my eyes and I will be off to la la land. There are nights that I have had those. All I need to do is take off my clothes (I like to sleep naked in my bed) and switch off the lights and slip in between the sheets and I go zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Other nights I take a while. I am a thinker and I dream of a lot of stuff too but mostly its the fantasies that I create in my head. Of a better, more exciting and super awesome life. In science fiction glory. With spaceships and lazers and fighting evil aliens on alien planets. You know? And sometimes I even drift off while thinking of a nice cozy log cabin in the mountains with just a couple of pets and a hot woman by my side. Cozy up by the fire with some hot cocoa and some marshmellows and deciding what movie to watch that lazy afternoon.
Good dreams. So if I am not too tired, I tend to like to lie in the silence and the dark and think about nice things and let sleep take it’s natural course. And if I am lucky those thoughts replicate it-selves in my dreams too. Which means for a really good night.
