So upon reflecting on the average amount of thought put into threads here on the CR forums, which seems to vary between two kind of subjects I've decided to join in.
The kind you can answer with a single short paragraph, and the controversial stuff that the 'news' likes to talk about.

So here I am, with my very own no-brainer filler, time-wasting topic.

Literally: How do you sleep? do you have a thousand pillows that takes up most of the bed?
Do you end up on the floor no matter how comfortable you make your bed.
Do you wake up lying with your head in the foot end of the bed?

Or are you one of those people that sleep with a sheet of silk on a hard bed that might as well be a hard flat rock.

Personally, I always keep a pillow exclusively for cuddling, yes it's a little (very) embarrasing, but I sleep better this way.
Probably a psuedo-teddy bear or my dream waifu.
On top of that I have a habbit of letting one leg reach outside the blanket.

I've also never been able to sleep on my back, not comfortably anyway, always on my side.

Let me hear about your quirks.
Don't be shy, share your embarrasing stuff too Unless you're still using a pacifier, you might want to keep that to yourself.


Just kidding, let's hear it

One good pillow for my head and neck, one pillow for under my knees, one other pillow in case I need it, and a blanket covering me from chest to ankle. I dislike sleeping with my feet covered unless it is very cold. I'm a fairly light sleeper so being sweaty will wake me up.

I used to sleep on my side or back, but I've switched to back-only the last few years to maintain my posture.

Just a pillow for my head. I have slept on my back for the past 3 years. Before that I was a left side sleeper. Laying on my back was the preferred way for someone to cuddle with me, so I just stuck with it. I just use a comforter, I can't stand blankets (other than the one that covers the mattress). I used to sleep with a heater on, nearby, but I don't really need that in summer (and I hope I don't have to use it next winter [$]).

On my right side with 6-7 pillows and a blanket

I have to sleep sitting up in a chair because I have severe G.E.R.D.
which makes me aspirate in my sleep and start choking.
It's so bad that eventually I could choke to death if I don't sit up.
So yeah, lots of fun.

I generally wake up 2-3 times a night too from nightmares

I sleep diagonally, with three pillows, and my right leg is positioned like I'm about to walk over something..

One pillow. I bought a memory foam one. Very good for your neck and back.
I only use one sheet and blanket. Cos its been cold being wearing pj pants and a t-shirt.
I keep the room as dark as possible. Roller shutters ftw.
I can be a light sleeper so i will wear ear plugs if theres noise around or if iam trying to sleep during the day.
Usually sleep to one side or on my stomach.
And yes, currently sleeping alone.

With a pillow for my head, a thick blanket or a pillow between my legs/knees, or using part of my blanket on my bottom leg (i usually sleep sideways), and listening to music as i fall asleep.

I'm a side/belly sleeper, 2 pillows for head, 3 other pillows (that I randomly grab when I'm tossing/turning) for legs, arms, or to rollover on lol. A thick blanket, and I have to have a fan on blowing wind on me year round.

wow this sounds agonizing.
Are you always kind of tired or is this something you somehow adjust to?

If it's too hot, I will put moisturizing lotion on my feet so I can cool down better before getting into bed. I have one pillow, and I tend to have the blanket half off and half on so that I can push it off in the night with more ease. As for the actual moment, I usually fall asleep on my side, and I get to sleep better if I cuddle my husband for a little bit first. After I fall asleep I usually roll away because I get overheated. I get why people would have a body pillow to cuddle, since before I moved in with my husband I had a teddy bear that I used for the same thing. Once you get used to sharing your bed with someone, it gets really hard to break the habit. ^^()
