Struggling With Sleep

Sunday, January 12, 2014

I tossed and turned last night. I didn't sleep until after 2:00 am, which hasn't happened in a long time. I walked for 45 minutes, which usually knocks me right out. I did watch a movie - Yentl, not exactly a high stress movie - and wondered if tv at night might be the culprit?

    It's totally possible.. There are countless studies about the artificial light from TV, computers, iPads, eReaders, etc .. acting as artificial sunlight and playing havoc with our sleep cycle.. But if it isn't a normal pattern for you to be up late watching TV it may be something else..?? Sometimes I find if I watch a show late at night that stirs a sad or old memory I toss and turn afterward because my mind won't rest thinking about the past.. Or maybe something else happened during the day??? Something that your mind was still dwelling on??
    Either way- exercise is great way to make your body tired so your mind has no choice but to switch off at night, but unless you ran a marathon, there may be other things that will trigger sleepless nights that are worth a look.

    I AM A WIDOW AND IT IS HARD FOR ME TO HAVE SET TIMES FOR THINGS. I FIND I DO THINGS WHEN I WANT--NOT WHEN I SHOULD. SOMETIMES I FIND MY SELF EATING SUPPER 9:00 PM

    There has been evidence that when you listen to television and try to go to sleep at night that it's not a good thing for getting a restful sleep because your subconscious still knows that you are listening to sound! I have been trying to learn to shut the television off at night when I start to feel tired so that I will sleep instead of leaving it on all night like I used to. emoticon
