    Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked

    (Acts 20:9)​

    For those of us who know what it is to experience large blocks of time without sleep when we know good and well we are hours past needing it, what have you done who once experienced near chronic insomnia to finally tip the scales in your favor?

    Two things I have noticed over the years that have played heavily into slumber’s hands; One, resisting the late meal and two as the above sleep sufferer indicates, try sampling sleeping elsewhere for a possible change.

    After a day at work when I come home, if I wanted to there is a recliner I have in the center of the house for reading or TV that can put me out every time, deeper and deeper into full sleep status. Such that it exceeds the effect of the customary bedtime hour.

    Of course this thought is not meant to diminish our state of mind,

    , , to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

    (Romans 8:6)​
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Interesting topic,'rock'. I wear a sleep apnea mask at night in order to sleep well. Otherwise I keep waking up at short intervals. Now the constant airflow gives me deep sleep!

    I can remember times when I have felt sleepy in church. Fortunately I was'n't sitting on a window sill at the time! My wife nudges me,if I get sleepy!

    Now when I sleep, I am not choking for air and can actually sleep :]

    I found this out for myself when I fell asleep in the back of a noisy utility van with some other guys up front complaining (Yikes!).

    But the wife has found for me the one position I have that permits peace for all involved. :idea:

    Yes, when I can't sleep I pray for all my friends and my family. I couldn't sleep last night at all, so got up at 5am and made a coffee...then went to sleep.:oops:

    My above mentioning of that recliner is something I occasionally succumb to :), and what you mention here is something I did after a futile attempt for regular bed-time, I got up at 1-am and made eggs and a pot of coffee and shortly thereafter got a good rest of the night's rest.

    I hope that this forum never becomes known as 'the deep sleep zone!'
