Sleepy Time Rituals

More and more of us go to bed too late because of sleep procrastination. What are the nighttime rituals that keep you up before finally dozing off?

Due to the wold cup the sleep pattern is kinda topsy-turvy and so I’ll mention that separately but usually I follow a simple pattern.

I usually am online at my computer / laptop until 10pm on most nights and will chose either a movie or tv series episodes to watch for the night by that time. I will lay down in bed after I take off my clothes – all of them, I prefer to sleep in the nude – and put the sheets upto my chest and watch said movie or tv series episodes that is playing on my laptop. Around 12:30 am or 1 am I usually feel tired enough to fall asleep and I will switch the laptop off and the lights off and put my spectacles on the table and then drift off into dreamland.

However with the world cup in Brazil and the matches taking place at late night for us in India (9:30 pm, 12:30 am, 3:30 am) my sleep is in smaller doses and that means more red eyes and tiredness.
