Hi Jillita,
Judi gave you excellent advice. Another suggestion is to set an alarm for 3:30--take a short "power nap" but control how long it is. I'd also suggest you discuss it with your doc to be sure there isn't an underlying problem

Hi Jillita. I put the above link for you. It can lead you to the "Better Sleep Challenge", as well as several articles that might be helpful.

If you consistently feel tired mid-afternoon, take a look at what you are eating at lunch. Try to have a mix of protein, carbs, and fat - this will even out the blood sugar so that you don't have an insulin spike and crash (making you feel tired).

Hope this helps,
Judi

I am tired in the afternoon. Some times I fall asleep on the couch and wake up in the middle of the night. It happens about 3 times a week. It really messes up my sleep schedule. It is 3:30 afternoon now and am tired. I am going to have to stay awake until at least 10:00 tonight. Hopeful of sleeping all night. Any one else have weird sleep habits?
