I don't think that I can remember when I last has unbroken sleep as I never get more that 5 to 6 hour broken sleep for at least the lost 30 or so years.

Since I retired I do have around 20 minutes after lunch some days. Even walking 10 to 15 mile never help, so I take it as it comes.



Join the 10 minute challenge and get exercising.

Put mind into gear and you can do anything.

Don't forget to make your workout fun so as not to get bored with it.

Hi Kittykatmn!

You could try melatonin 1mg or 3mg depending on what a doc. might suggest for a short term that may help your natural melatonin levels and also try not to exercise for 2-3 hrs. before bed

Plus check out the spark coach Tonya's suggestion emoticon

I can only have a light snack before bed since a small meal will bother my stomach and sleep emoticon

I was waking up almost every night at around 3am. I did a saliva cortisol test and found out my cortisol is high. I started taking some supplements and trying to destress. I also through that process found a great OB gyn who tested my sex hormones. I was low in testosterone and non-existent in progesterone (meaning I was estrogen dominant.) Since I started taking progesterone at bed the last 2 weeks of my cycle I'm sleeping much better. Magnesium can also help.
To lower cortisol I was taking Vit C and Fish oil...need to get back on those. But all my labs have improved and I"m overall feeling better.

A goal without a plan is just a dream.

Just got a Fitbit One and have been tracking sleep quality. Ugh, not so good. I am not sleeping nearly as long as I thought I had been. I have had a sleep study done, and use a CPAP faithfully, but I obviously have a lot of work to do on my sleep hygiene.

Words mean things.

I slept really well. Was tired from a long day at work and sleep was just what I needed.

Slept like a baby!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Last night I wanted to focus on getting more sleep, since that is one area I am notoriously terrible at. I was pretty excited when I was tired after my belly dancing class because I thought it would be easy to pass out at a decent time and I was right. After a small late dinner, I was able to get in bed at 11 and fall asleep within about 15 minutes! The only problem was that I woke up about 12, went back to sleep, then woke up again around 3 and 5:45. I set my alarm for 6 and hit the snooze a few times so I actually wake up, but my sleep pattern was all off...so even though I got about 8 hours of sleep, I don't feel it was the most quality sleep.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get more of a better night's sleep????
