For almost my entire life I've not really had issues sleeping; not any prolonged issues with insomnia, or ability to fall or stay asleep, etc. But this year has changed that. I attribute it to the world at large/ the state of my own country / it all rubbing off on me negatively. As such I've had increased issues falling asleep as the year progresses and the bigger issue is waking up like every two hours. Also apparently the silence I've always had my whole life and been ok with is no longer ok for me. So as of a few nights ago I've started leaving the classical music station on all night long and I like that a lot more. I still wake up multiple times a night but I'm not greeted with silence and my imagination/thoughts as much. So it's a big improvement.

Edit: The jury is still out on whether Valerian root or melatonin actually does a thing for me. I do think they help me ease into sleep, but so far neither has kept me asleep more than four hours or so. Maybe too I'm pre-menopausal. That's possible, ofc. I think sleep can alter when that starts happening.

Yeah.. old age means sleeping problems. :(

Magnesium helps me, though that sometimes means I wake up to pee. :(

I haven’t tried the melatonin. This time will pass.

a warm milk does help me get into the mood to sleep too, mainly the warmth feeling and the full feeling from drinking milk does make it cosy.
