    I am like NELLIEC, nighttime bathroom trips wake me up and I use nitelights to get there and back. I just get back in bed and do deep breathing and I usually fall back asleep. If I wake up earlier than usual, I have been spending the time stretching in bed. It makes me feel better when I do get up.
Keep on your challenge, you'll learn a lot about you , and I did have to cut way back on coffee. Ugh.

    When I wake in the middle of the night, it is because I need to go to the bathroom. I don't turn on any lights because I do have nightlights to show me the way to the little room. I stagger back and turn on my Christian music softly. Very shortly I am asleep again.
