It typically takes most people 10-20 minutes to fall asleep because the body needs time to relax and transition from a state of wakefulness to sleep. Falling asleep is a gradual process that involves slowing down both physically and mentally. This can include slowing down your heart rate, relaxing your muscles, and reducing your level of alertness.
The time it takes to fall asleep varies depending on stress levels, alcohol and caffeine intake, exposure to blue light, and general sleep habits. If you regularly have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, it may be helpful to speak with a doctor to determine the underlying cause and develop a plan for better sleep.
