Official Better Sleep Challenge - Week 2

Friday, October 26, 2012

Week 1 went well. I slept 8 hours or more 3 days out of 7. Not bad, but my goal remains to sleep 8 hours every night. I learned how to make a bedtime routine and followed it each night. I went to sleep each night within 5-10 minutes. I used to lay there for hours. When I didn't sleep 8 hours during week 1, I found my problem was I couldn't sleep through the night and woke up too early because I was going to bed too early.

My goals for week 2:

1. Sleep 8 hours per night, going to bed at 8 pm and waking up at 4 am.

2. Continue journaling every night and morning.

3. Develop a middle of the night routine if I do wake up to go to the bathroom.

4. Don't go to bed before 8 pm nightly.

5. Stop drinking my 10 cups of water at 5 pm each night.

6. Cut coffee down to 4 cups at 4 am, first drinking 16 oz of water each morning. This will be the hardest!

    I too had the late water drinking habit, which affected my sleep quality. Getting up and down to go to the bathroom. I started drinking a cup of water in the morning after each cup of coffee. That helped a lot and made me feel better. Coffee, caffeine tends to dehydrate. Morning water is a good habit to get into.
You have good goals to work toward. Keep pushing for the prize, 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep!
