    1. Time to wind down. I try not to do anything mentally stimulating after dark.

    2. Dinner a few hours before bed - not necessary but I sleep better if I'm neither hungry nor full

    3. Darkness. I have a dim clock (could be dimmer) and a nightlight for my kid that I kick under his bed so you can barely see a glow

    4. One thin pillow. I think hotel pillows are way too thick.

    5. Nothing tucked in around my feet.

    6. Temperature wise it doesn't have to be perfect, cool is best, but I need to be able to adjust the blankets/ sheets in my sleep.

    7. Quiet. A fan is OK in the summer. When I had a white noise machine I would wake up in the middle of the night to turn it off.

    I find that I don't need a certain amount of sleep every single night to function, but if I get less than eight hours on consecutive nights, it starts to catch up with me after just a few nights.

    To be tired enough to fall asleep.
    All else is optional.

    I used to think I needed dark and quiet until the hum of an office and the flicker of flourescent lights started to put me to sleep.
    These days, I can't sleep unless I'm pretty much worn out, primarily because I don't like sleeping.
    I used to think it was insomnia, but the truth is, I'd rather be awake.
    Except for when I'm told to be up, then I want to be asleep.
    It's an autonomy issue since childhood.

    I put trashbags over my window so it's completely dark.

    Turn on a fan for white noise.

    Sleep in boxers and undershirt

    Need at least a tiny bit of covers on me, never completely uncovered. Usually don't cover feet.

    Pillow for my knees.

    8.5 hour window between lights out and alarm going off, and it must always start at the exact same time, down to the second. That time is 11:30 right now, but can be adjusted on a long term basis depending on when I have to go to work or whatnot. If I don't wake up by the alarm, oh well, I won't be too tired. If I do wake up before the alarm, I can hang out and read my phone for a bit.

    I like sleep when it feels wrong, that's always the most relaxing sleep, like calling in sick and playing video games.

    Be tired enough to sleep and feel safe doing so.

    Optimally be at home and temperature under 67 degrees F. I am a sweater
