Massive issues with WBTB

Postby Ender_brine » 20 Jan 2015 05:29

Hi, I'm back. So last night I performed the Wake Back To Bed (WBTB) method to achieve lucidity. I went to sleep at around 9pm, and woke to an alarm at around 3am. I got up and walked around a bit, got some water, then went to bed. But I couldn't fall asleep. This has happened all but one time while using WBTB (the only successful attempt was my first), so I decided to try to troubleshoot it. When I went to sleep at 9pm, I went down playing a binaural beat video (my earphones always fall out about an hour in though) I also used only a red light in my room when my alarm woke me up, I heard red light won't startle your brain awake as much as white light. After being up for like 20 minutes, I went back to bed and restarted the binaural beats. but once again I couldn't fall asleep. I did, eventually, but that was like an hour and a half later. Why won't the WBTB work for me anymore?

I don't really know but you should quit this technique if it doesn't work for you. Just try MILD.
