A lot of people fall asleep easier with the tv on. I heard an interview with a sleep scientist last year where he said he knows that it is not a popular opinion, but if that works for you, use it.Hey Martin Z,
This works for me every time without fail. The volume is really low, but just loud enough to be able to understand the words and ...boom.. asleep.
Experts say a lot of things. They research, get data then draw conclusions based on that data. Maybe they put it in a nice pie chart, present it in a respectable journal and then get kudos from their fellow staff and peers.
I prefer trying sh#t and seeing if it works. And this sh#t works for me. So experts can say what they want. Try it and see if it works for you.
I understand why it works for me. I can't control my mind. It goes nonstop 24/7 about everything and anything. The episode quietens my mind as it needs to process what the guy is saying. The narrator tells the story in such a way, that its interesting, so my mind stops for that period.. and then.. bang.. lights out.
If I can't stop thinking and am finding it hard to sleep, I'll put some random episode of something I've seen before on my laptop, close the screen so it's audio only, and am asleep in 5 to 10 minutes. I think this is quite a bit different to falling asleep with the tv on though, as after 20 mins the episode ends and my laptop will hibernate.
Meditation to try help with insomnia actually frustrates me more. May as well use TV for it's real purpose: to turn you into a mindless zombie lol.
