on average,how long after your head hits the pillow does it take for you to fall asleep? don't count days where you read something or watch tv beforehand. i think the happiest and most self-accepting people fall asleep the quickest. my dad and brother fall asleep within 1 minute (i've seen it happen ). on the other hand, i think unhappy people spend the day brooding over what went wrong, how much they hate themselves, dissecting each and every single aspect of their day, etc. so it takes them longer to fall asleep. in some cases, much, much longer. what do you guys think?
