How's your sleep these days? Energy levels?

Metranger, I got a new formula now are you still cramping up?
It's been pretty good actually man thanks for asking. I got a new bed not too long ago that's made a huge difference, I sleep through night way more. My energy as of late has been a ton better. I do still get tired during the day, but not quite to the same degree nor as often. In the past few months I've been working out consistently which has helped a lot and my caffeine/weed consumption have both gone down. All three are noticeably helping a lot, I've been feeling great.

Any suggestions for a good pillow? Is buckwheat any good? Best bets in different price ranges would be appreciated (<$100, <$200, and <$300). Thanks in advance

I use a pacific coast down pillow or some shit I actually prefer a flatter pillow so it doesn't hurt my neck but I know metranger had a better quality company he recc'd earlier in the thread.

No idea on buckwheat but I imagine it would be rather noisy.

Here's my latest supp rec https://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Best-Calcium-Capsules-180-Count/dp/B004KQF9LA/ref=sr_ph_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1477450063&sr=sr-1&keywords=bone+maker

Incidentally all the ingredients are conducive to good sleep and it has the right mix/quality of minerals than pretty much most anything you will find. Only downside is it's 6 caps a day so 3 of them 2x a day. Unfortunately thats't the case with any calcium/magnesium supp because those two require higher mg doses than most vitamins. It's got Vit D and k2 which directs the calcium to bones and teeth (and not your arteries) plus the calcium is in the form of mcha and mag is dimagnesium malate. Good for high bp, healing broken bones, receding gums, kidney stones, cramps, restless leg syndrome, etc as well. Babies you will be sleeping like.

Magnesium completely eliminates jaw clench, ya know if anyone ever gets it occasionally
Just make sure it's good magnesium that has high bioavailability like chelated magnesium, none of the oxide shit.

I have buckweat, its like a giant sack of noisy sand, but it keeps your head in place nice. Stays cool in summer. When I toss, sometimes I wrestle it in my sleep.

We all love clothes for sure.

But if anyone has the scoop on sales for bedding I'd appreciate a name drop. TIA

I'm looking for new bed sheets and possible a pillow. I've been having a hard time sleeping on my back and I think it's the pillow.

edit:
So I have no fucking clue about supplements but it seems like 90% of this thread is about taking pills. FWIW my sleep is okay once I hit the sack. I just need to get in a better sleep schedule, been only getting 4-5 GOOD sleep I think. When your co-workers talk about sleep habits and I roll my eyes hearing 11pm... so early. And I need to break the habit of looking at my phone while in bed. Old iPhone does not have that F.Lux software and I turn the one installed on desktop off because I can't see the true colors when shopping. Bad habits are hard to break.

Did find some links so will look through those. I remember people talking about linen sheets so going to give that a try.

Kind of interesting. A womenswear company creating a new category for basics: sleepwear.

https://www.lunya.co/

Not the traditional silk or cotton PJ kind, but the stretchy kind of stuff that feels like an offshoot of sportswear/ athleisure.

At the moment, it's just for women, but it would be interesting/ nice to see this develop for men.

So I was looking at these https://www.mrporter.com/en-us/mens/armand_diradourian/cashmere-and-silk-eye-mask/973050?ppv=2
And it seems the main website is completely sold out of it all https://www.armanddiradourian.com/collections/all/eye-masks

Do good eye masks cost that much and is something worth paying more for? I was considering picking up three to four to rotate and launder through (for hygienic concerns).

Does anyone here use eye masks? If its not noise its light that stirs me awake and I have a hard time falling back asleep especially on the weekend when I want to catch some extra 'z'.

Also, resurrecting this thread. BUMP
Hope ya'll been sleeping well/

I've tried some basic and semi-fancy ones in the past and couldn't get into any of them. I mean, they're OK, but it's somewhat annoying to feel this thing against your face. Somewhere in the middle of the night, regardless of construction or material, I just find I just toss it off. It's rarely on me by morning.

I find the best way is to just buy good curtains to block out light. Get heavy ones and extend the curtain rod a little further past the window.

Sleep is very important.

I've slept with bulky headphones on before albeit I did wake up to take them off.

I'm also trying to train myself to sleeve with my back against the mattress but finding it difficult. I fall asleep faster if rest against my sides but I'm also conscious how my body is against my shoulders. And as a result I am tossing between left and right.

Who has transitioning from side sleeping to back sleeping successfully and can provide some pointers?

What kind of mattress do you have? My mattress at home is a firmer foam one and I always fall asleep on my side but when I stay at a hotel with a softer mattress (one where I kind of "sink in") I find it easier to fall asleep on my back.

Firm to hard mattress, no extra foam layer. I actually don't mind the mattress, it's good for my back. It may be time to replace the pillow for something thinner.

Still using that f.lux lightning and sort of works.

Been also sleeping earlier to get my much needed 7 hours. On bad days it may be like 5 to 6.

For falling asleep the best thing I can recommend is get all your browsing done before you go to bed and try not to pickup your phone/pad. In those cases I find myself not remembering when I fell asleep, which is always nice IMO.

I sleep on my back. I have a thin pillow under my head and a little pillow under my knees. I read the pillow under knees was good for spine and back. Never had any problems with my back.

I had the same experience as dieworkwear with the eye masks. I tried them a handful of years ago when I was in college, sleeping in the dorms with the plastic window curtains that really didn't block much light. I couldn't ever keep the mask on through the night. Now at my own place I have dark curtains and I have noticed a huge difference in sleep since putting them up.
