People Explain Which Things They Cannot Fall Asleep Without

There is little more important than a good night's sleep.

But getting a good night's sleep isn't always easy to come by.

As a result, many people have an important ritual or method which helps them fall asleep easily and wake up feeling rejuvenated.

So much so, that if they attempt to sleep without this method or helping hand, they might find themselves staying awake all night.

Redditor AdministrativeFox784 was curious to hear the things which were necessary for people to have a peaceful night's sleep, leading them to ask:

It would be nice if we all had on/off buttons which allow us to sleep undisturbed.

But until we do, our own, personal rituals will have to do.
