    The trick I've found, as far as using television to put yourself to sleep, is that it has to be just interesting enough that you don't mind watching it, but not so intersting that it thoroughly engages you and you wind up watching the whole thing because you want to see how it turns out. For me, it's the History Channel, but if you're a real history buff you might want to avoid that.


That always works like a charm for me. If the History Channel has something too interesting for me, there is always National Geographic, Biography or Discovery with something of just the right level of moderate interest.
My big problem with watching TV to fall asleep is that the television has to have a timer. If I find myself drifting off and turn off the TV- wham! I'm awake again.

I will parrot some other responses, but I have to use a DVD from my collection. If I just had nothing on, my mind goes a mile a minute and I'll never fall to sleep. Plus I toss and turn a good deal.

It has to be a DVD I've watched numerous times, so that my mind can focus on the words. Like others have said, it can't be so interesting or new that I desire to watch it. It will usually be a long making of featurette (like the Truman Show) that works best for me or perhaps even an MST3K episode.

Honorable mention goes to books on CD...that usually works too.

I drive a 1991 Honda Accord and it still works better than any automobile the rest of my family has despite them having much newer cars. Since I acquired the car six years I've only had to repair it once.
