Sleep challenge, week 2
Monday, April 01, 2013
Here are my bedtime goals.
1.Complete bedtime routine at least 4 times per week.
a. Go to sleep 30 minutes earlier after being able to complete 1 week of going to sleep at midnight. Do that each week until I eventually go to sleep at 10pm and waking up at 7am.
b. The hour prior to going in to bed complete a routine, current times:
i. Get ready for bed 11 – 11:30.
ii. Drink a glass of water or Chamomile tea 11:30 – 11:35.
iii. Enter information into my sleep blog. 11:35 – 11:45.
iv. Relaxation technique (i.e. deep breathing, meditation, stretching, journal,) 11:45 – 12.
2. No eating, alcohol, or caffeine within 3 hours of bedtime (currently 9pm). If I must snack, then I’ll eat something small and healthy (i.e. toast, cereal, fruit) at least 4 days per week.
3. Create and honor boundaries established with others to minimize stress.
4. Complete yoga at least 3 times per week.
Any suggestions, I'm all ears. :)
