  1. It's the same for me. For example, if time permits, I start reading immediately after breakfast, that is, in the morning, when I have had a good night's sleep. Or by drinking a cup of coffee. I agree with “small portions”. Divide the number of planned pages for the day into 3-4 parts and spend at least half an hour at a time. Long reading for 2 hours at a time is really very tiring and it is logical that you start to fall asleep. Before going to bed, I would not recommend reading, especially difficult literature for the brain. I can't even hold on to a book for 15 minutes, especially after a hard day at work. The brain does not perceive the text in any way, so you have to reread the paragraph, etc. The same goes for movies. Start watching at least 7-8 pm, so that you are already in bed at 9-10.

  2. I suffer from the same problem. My advice to you is not to read lying down or reclining in a soft chair. It is best to do this in a position that does not put you to sleep, and healthy sleep is very important here. Non-compliance with the work and rest regime often causes us to be overwhelmed by the evening, and then any information is difficult to assimilate (if last night, for example, I didn't get enough sleep). Think back to your school/college years (if any) and how you did your homework. Personally, I've always done something like this while sitting at the table, but I don't know about the rest of them.

    Alternatively, don't read more than an hour or two before bedtime. If it doesn't help, write it down and we'll think about it again.

  3. Maybe you should read “in small portions”?) If I read for more than one hour, I also start to fall asleep, which is natural. Movies for me were also tiring to watch, I paused 100 times, came back, but this is most likely from restlessness. You may have trouble concentrating (I don't know how to treat it, I just drank glycine and tried to pull myself together)
