OK, I am joining this challenge today. Did well on the sleep quiz, so the problem isn't knowing about sleep, but rather putting what I know into practice. I set up a sleep diary, and will keep it starting today.

I'm very excited to be participating in this challenge! It's only been a few nights, but I have started a new bedtime routine that is soothing and really helps put me in the right frame of mind.
I haven't had the need to take a nap for two days, and that really excites me! It will be interesting to review my sleep journal and see any emerging patterns.

Have a terrific Friday night!

I'm bad about staying up too late. If I'm anxious about something that also leads to bad sleep.

I was glad to see this challenge. Definitely need to improve my sleep. I average about 6-7 hours per night, then crash for 8-9 hours about once every couple of weeks.

I've just joined this challenge. I have a notoriety for going to bed WAY too late!! I am setting my alarm now for a pre-warning to wrap up my night's activities and then a half hour later I hear an alarm for "All Screens off". That's the first step. Your support and successes will be a big boost.

The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you're no longer willing to stay where you are.

I have had trouble going to sleep my whole life, and this problem has worsened over time.
It takes me anywhere from 15 minutes on a good night to several hours on a bad night to fall asleep. In recent years I have had increasing bouts of insomnia which involve several nights in a row each week of very little sleep, lasting for weeks to months, leaving me more dysfunctional at work and anxious about sleep - a vicious cycle. Additionally, I wake up several times during the night and often feel as though I must eat something in order to fall asleep again. I have been taking a prescription sleep med for 8 years but have built a tolerance so it is no longer effective. I am in the process of tapering from this medication, which really complicates the sleep issue. I have tried many approaches to sleep hygiene, I have had some training in bed time breathing/relaxation techniques and I am considering seeing a sleep specialist. I know one of the first things they will have me do, which I have never done, is keep a sleep diary. Figured I'd get a head start and do one before I see the specialist if that's the route I go. Who knows - I might even learn something that will help me to sleep better after all these years.

I'm normally pretty good about getting enough sleep but over the summer when the majority of the students are off-campus and the traffic isn't as bad in the morning, I got in the (bad) habit of staying up too late to read or whatever. I do occasionally have bouts of insomnia, usually brought about by stress.

Two things I couldn't do without:

- a yoga nidra guided meditation, which I listen to before bed (it's not the same as regular yoga -- it walks you through each body part and you're supposed to relax it and envision it as too heavy to lift... 95% of the time I'm out before the meditation is over)

- ambient sound -- you could use one of those noise maker machines that's pretty cheap at the drug store -- I just download mp3s and put them on loop. One of my favorites is ocean waves, but I also like rain.

I just joined today on August 11th. I have always had problems with getting to sleep really late and waking up late always feeling groggy with a headache and wanting to take naps throughout the day. Which definitely makes for an unproductive, somewhat depressing day because I drag through the things I need to do every day and find myself not wanting to do anything else because I don't have the energy or motivation. I am excited for this challenge and really hope it helps.

I joined this challenge on 6th August, having had many years of sleep challenges. I have tried a wide range of things to address the problem, but success has been patchy. I'm open to trying again, and keeping a sleep journal has been really interesting.

Here's to success! emoticon

Thank you all for your comments... I am learning from them and also being able to see that my sleep issues are not in my head since a lot of what some of you reported to experience I also experience. I must say that the consistency of my schedule is helping some and I think some of the "outside" disturbances I have no control over and have to work through adapting and changing what I can...

I have just joined the challenge, too. What complicates my sleep is my work schedule-my work start time ranges from 5:30 am to 12:30 pm and I have 6 different start times.

It always seems impossible until it's done.

I have been keeping my sleep journal ... I am in the bed no later than 9:30 each evening that I am not working, read until 10, lights out -- usually wake about 2:30 am but just look at the clock and fall back asleep. Get up between 7:15 and 7:45.

I have been keeping a sleep journal for a few days and realize I sleep less than I thought!
Last night I went to bed tired at 10pm, read awhile and slept soundly for a two hour period, then woke up for BR break, fell asleep after relaxation technique only to awake with our daughters dog whining and missing her. I got sleepy again at 5am only to have my son in laws alarm wake me. He is on another floor. After trudging upstairs to shake him awake (I could only dream of that kind of sleep!) I was wide awake. So despite being in bed for 7 hours I slept four maybe. Earplugs anyone? Euthanasia for Daisy the dog? (Just kidding)

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you take more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

I have trouble going to sleep. The only thing that helps lately is taking over the counter sleeping pills. I do take a hot shower before bed. I usually read to get to sleep. It may be that I'm going through menopause?

I joined this challenge a bit premature. I went through surgery one week ago. While healing my sleep waxes and wanes. I am taking the next week to set goals for sleep while I heal. Due to seizure disorder, I have special needs when it comes to sleep so this challenges will prove beneficial. Looking forward to Week 2 - in 2 weeks!

I used to hit the snooze button several times after the alarm went off. Now I keep my alarm clock on the dresser about 10 feet away, so I have to get out of bed to hit the snooze button. The radio's blaring and by the time I walk across the room, I'm awake! This has helped me a lot.

Thanks for the advice Mojolo. I have joined several teams that I am interested in and am experiencing some overwhelm. I think that I will try to simplify my teams and add teams back in when I can fully commit to the team goals. It's hard for me to let go of teams that I like. I have the same issue with organizing my home. I have a hard time letting things go. Letting go would probably help me sleep better though. emoticon emoticon

Have a restful evening.

I haven't started my sleep journal yet and this really stresses me out. Can I start the four weeks over? Do I need to leave the team and come back again or just start where I am?

Thanks for your help!

P.S. I have stopped having caffeine in the afternoon for the most part. I am still striving to get to bed on time and to get 8 hours of sleep a night. I have a hard time sleeping through the night... especially since I've been drinking 8 glasses of water a day! emoticon

I have been using a relaxation technique and it is working for me. I lay on my back and concentrate on relaxing the different parts of my body. I stretch from my toes to my head. I also focus on my breathing and I have been falling to sleep before I reach my neck and shoulders.

The fan as white noise is a really good idea. I am a light sleeper & I constantly wake up to my husbands snoring...Then of course I have trouble falling back to sleep. I will have to use a small fan that will fit on my night stand, because my husband is always cold as it is...but I am definitely going to try this.

I have been having a lot of stress lately in my life, divorce, three of my children living with their father and not being able to see them, taking care of my mentally challenged mother, back pain, as well as with dealing with depression and and anxiety. So my sleep patterns are way off. I will be awake for days at a time with maybe two-three hours of sleep total. My doctor gave me a something to help me sleep but sometimes it's too much. I can go to bed at 10pm and wake up 6am get my son ready for school and be back to sleep by 8am and will sleep until 1 or 2pm. I know the pain medication I take will make me sleepy.

Trying to stay motivated one day at a time!

Hi there- I am joining this challenge because the stress in my life has been so high that I can't sleep. I was hoping that it would get better with time but it's not. It seems like since 11/13/13 I have had only one decent night's sleep per week.
I want to try the natural route before I resort to prescriptions- so here I am.
Hopefully it will help.

Hey everyone!

I'm almost a week in with Spark People and am still getting used to the set up of things on this site, but I liked the idea of this group and joined.

In the past, I've taken psychology courses that required me to keep a journal and to find my 'perfect' amount of sleep. Back then, it was 9 hours, but now that I'm a little older, it has decreased to 7 1/2 hours. My biggest problem is trying to fall asleep at night. I get uncomfortable, toss and turn, and periodically will wake up thirsty in the middle of the night.

My main goal in joining this group is to begin a night routine that calms me down and helps me fall asleep quicker. My second goal will be to not hit the snooze button so many times ( or change my alarm altogether) before I get out of bed.

Thanks and happy sleeping!

I don't know what to do to sleep 8 hours a night. some times I do but rarely.
I go to bed at about 10 or 11, I feel tired and ready to sleep. I lei down turn off the lights. Next step try to do meditation deep breathing and for the last 3 to 4 weeks I can't stay in the moment to actually sleep. I can't stop thinking of things that pop up in my head. Then before you know it I am wide awake again, so I sit up and start reading a good book emoticon emoticon

I started a month ago , but I didn't go nowhere.
Why? I am finding everything I do tiresome and very difficult. I am trying to continue and get somewhere with my fight for a better life. My health has been going down in the last 5 years. I am 73 and recently I am experiencing quite a bit of pain with this injury of a sciatic nerve. Of course that has nothing to do with my continued to eat things are not beneficial for me. I believe depression is the cause of wanting more sweets, is my weakne

My sleep is in 3-4 hour intervals. Frustrating is the fact that I totally represent that segment unable to sleep and unable to lose weight. I am retired the past 4 years and unable to break the getting up to go work wake up call.

I have trouble staying asleep. I can fall asleep pretty easily. I don't watch TV...never have...don't have a TV in my bedroom. (Ahem, It kills the romance! lol) However, since I was 16 I have been plagued with waking up after 4 hours feeling as though I slept for 8 hours. I am wide awake at that time. I have always gotten up and cleaned the house until I was sleepy again. This makes people think I have OCD but really it is just insomnia.

One thing I found that works is to be good and worn out by the time I go to bed....so time to crank of the exercise!

Good luck everyone! emoticon

My difficulty is that I stay up too late most nights and every night then is a short night. I also have sleep apnea and use a CPAP which makes a difference. I am also on a pain medication that makes me groggy even in the morning. Where would I be without coffee? LOL

I recently decided to do a TV fast from Sunday evening to Friday evening as watching TV often kept me up watching what I had recorded on my PVR. Watching TV also led to night time munching.

Trying to work on preparing for bed around 10:00 PM .... doing a few stretches, etc. This week I am going to try hard to be in bed by 11:00 PM.

I have created two challenges for myself:

1. Start my bedtime routine at 7:00 pm, and in bed by 10:00, and
2. Start my day at 7:30 am, and dress for the day's activities.

I will be in bed by 9pm and I will turn my TV off so that I get at least 8 hours of sleep :)

Keep your mind on the goal and you will achieve.

Its better to feel like Jello after a workout than look like Jello by not working out.

This group and challenge is new to me. This is my second post in total with SP.

I am finding that going to bed once tired at between 2-3:30 and sleeping until 7:30 is not working well and hope this challenge will provide some ideas and accountability for making adjustments.

I am today 76 years old and reading about getting up early every day and going to bed late as well, it reminds me of me . May be with got into the habit of it as mothers. My children are long gone I still stay up late as if something needs to be done yet. Is it insomnia? emoticon emoticon I don't know

I started a month ago , but I didn't go nowhere.
Why? I am finding everything I do tiresome and very difficult. I am trying to continue and get somewhere with my fight for a better life. My health has been going down in the last 5 years. I am 73 and recently I am experiencing quite a bit of pain with this injury of a sciatic nerve. Of course that has nothing to do with my continued to eat things are not beneficial for me. I believe depression is the cause of wanting more sweets, is my weakne

Working at a hospital and moving from shift to shift has really confused my internal clock. I have always been a night person, so this has added to the problem.

My goal is to get to bed by midnight, so I've tried to give up TV after 10PM, using a Qi Gong app to relax before sleep, reading a book and having "quiet time."

with my chronic conditions I sleep when I can which sometimes makes for a sporadic sleep, however, lately I have been able to be in bed at 12 midnight and stay in bed until 6, am getting about 6 hours a night but sometimes I fall short a couple days a week with getting 5, but for at least 5 days I get 6 hours...which is all good...drinking a cup of hot milk at night before bed usually helps me to settle down...

I seem to have some of the same things going on as a lot of you. Trying to burn the candle at both ends. I am currently a stay at home Mom to 3 teenagers. Even though they are older I still find a million things to do in a day. I get up at 6am at least 5 days a week. Problem is I don't go to bed usually until after midnight. Sometimes 2am or later.


The best way to get something done is to begin.

My goal is to be in bed prepared to sleep before 10 and to stay in bed until 6 or longer. I seem to want to burn the candle at both ends - staying up really late to get things done and getting up really early so as not to miss a thing.

I'm new to this challenge, and am hoping to sleep better as a result of working on these steps and goals. I wear a Fitbit to bed, so I know that my sleep is very choppy. Last night was 75% efficiency. I woke up 10 times and got up to use the bathroom once.

I start work (at home, online) at 5am, so in a perfect world I would get up at 3-3:30 to exercise, shower, and be ready to teach my first class at 5am. It vitrually never happens like that.

I go to bed too late. Now that baseball season is over, I plan to get into bed earlier, read for a bit, and sleep earlier. Now that DST has taken effect, it's finally dark when I should go to bed, which helps.7pm would be ideal. It's difficult, as my husband stays up much later. Also, we have a lot of pets who sleep in the bedroom. If we don't let them in, they scratch on the door and cry all night. But they take up a good bit of the bed, get into little spats, puke hairballs, and the Golden has developed an allergy and scratches loudly.

I need to relearn how to sleep like a log as I used to.

Hi, I am new to this challenge. I have gotten through the power surges and night sweats and don't have any trouble falling asleep. I have my water regulated through the day, now, so awakening for that bathroom trip is no longer an issue. My problem is that my husband of 35 years has sleep apnea and has always had sleep problems. When he gets up at 3 or 4, I wake up. Sometimes this causes me to stay awake, too and then I feel lousy all day long. I used to love naps in the afternoon, but now I am reading that this causes problems at night. I'm baffled.

SCRAP40SLK sounds like me 7 years ago. (Not able to go to sleep, waking up in the middle of the night) I was depressed! You may want to consider seeing your family doctor and asking for a screening for depression. It changed my life!

I am new to this challenge. I am so glad that I found it. I have had trouble sleeping since I was a teen. I am now 40ish and still having problems. My biggest issue is just getting to sleep. I try reading and some nights I can't get to sleep until 1-2 am. In fact last night I was wide awake watching tv at 12:45. I then tend to wake at 4 am 5 am and 6 am then by the 7 am when I actually need to get up I can barely get out of bed. About 10 am I get a surge of energy and 3 pm I want to take a nap. Any help would be appreciated. I have read some of the posts but may take me a while to read all of the them. thank you ahead of time.

If I was taller I would be skinnier.

Hi there! Like many of you, I struggle with insomnia. I go to bed by 10pm ( I know that is early for some!) and I read for at least 45 minutes. There is no TV in my room and I have a fan blowing on me (you know - for those nightly power surges! ;) I try to do all the right things. And I will fall asleep. Unfortunately, way to often, I am awake around 3am and it is hard to get back to sleep. UGH. So here I am with this challenge, hoping to learn something new! I hope you ALL get a good night's sleep tonight! :)

have you had a sleep test? You could have sleep apnea and be unaware of it. It will make you tired all the time. If you do not have insurance there is a device at radio shack that measures how many time you wake during the night, which is often a sign of sleep apnea. It costs $80 when it is on sale. It is available at other places I just do not know which, it also measures your energy output.

goal is to be able to walk again

I've been contemplated whether or not I want/should become an insurance agent. This has been going on for a few months while I've been studying for my licenses and going through training. After Saturday morning waking really early from horrible dreams and being extremely sensitive all day I decided that this probably is not for me. Then yesterday after feeling better I decided I should really give a chance and just go for it get out of my own way, what happened, another night of horrible dreams and waking up really early. OK, OK I think I get it this is not for me

While I think walking/exercising outside is great, I have found that when the weather/ temps/seasons change, my sinuses give me trouble and I walk at the mall. Usually the doors are open before the stores so I can get in (along with many others who need flat, dry surfaces). I have also gone to my town's Federal building (happens to be the tallest) and climb stairs. If there is a university that has a tall building (dorms), you might try that to keep you exercising and not "in the elements" and pollutants of outdoors.

I too am new to this challenge. I have started walking everyday to hopefully help me to sleep better - as well as lose more weight. I suffer from allergies which aren't helped by where I live. I am thinking of getting a mask to wear so I can continue to enjoy walking even though the leaves will be dropping and leaf mold will be everywhere.
We have to do whatever we can to enable ourselves to continue on in our quests. Sleep is important, especially when it starts to affect our daily living. I am a nursing student who is very active and now looking for a job to supplement my income. It's always a new day so we have to keep our enthusiasm up and continue on! Good luck to all who are on this quest with me. emoticon

New to this challenge. I definitely need to sleep better! It's currently 1:50 AM and I'm still on the computer. My usual bedtime is 2:00 and I usually get up around 7:00. And I wonder why I need caffeine?! emoticon

I can do this, with God's help!!!

With God, ALL things are possible!!

I usually use the "sleep timer" on my tv.....my dog is a bit skittish falling a sleep in the dark. If it just us upstairs will set it for a half hour *because I can't sleep with the tv on~I like it completely dark. If my boyfriend is going to bed at the same time, will set it for longer because takes him little longer and says he "needs" it on to fall asleep.

I don't have to ask for proof, he shows me he loves me more and more each day!

I've been sleeping well the last few nights, but I can't manage to get up without the snooze. Plus, hubby and I will be moving in 2 weeks and we'll have to leave the house about 45 minutes earlier, so the time I'm actually getting up to get ready will be the time I actually need to leave for work. Any tips?

Why? I am finding everything I do tiresome and very difficult. I am trying to continue and get somewhere with my fight for a better life. My health has been going down in the last 5 years. I am 73 and recently I am experiencing quite a bit of pain with this injury of a sciatic nerve. Of course that has nothing to do with my continued to eat things are not beneficial for me. I believe depression is the cause of wanting more sweets, is my weakne

I am having difficulty sleeping deeply, although I love to sleep. I stay up too late and often fail to relax properly. In addition, I often sleep in strange positions that eventually lead to neck and back cramps. Any suggestions? emoticon

I was away to visit my son for a week , I loved to see my grand children and his family . We had a wonderful time. Now I am glad to be back to be here tracking my food, exercise and everything else. Talking about sleep, emoticon emoticon emoticon It is difficult for me to sleep , I don't know exactly why . I don't want to go to bed as if I am going to miss something. But I also know that when I go to bed I lie there for at least an hour before I can fall sleep and that makes me feel very uncomfortable. I don't want to take sleeping pills , I tried before , after a while , they don't work and it is just unnatural. I maybe feel anxious about something , I really don't know . It was not always like this. .When I have lots of pain I take ibuprofen , aspirin I try not to take anything stronger it's not good for the organs.Thank you for asking

I hope you've been sleeping better over the last few days. It's hard to sleep when you're in pain. Are you taking medication for the pain?

Never, never, never give up.

I hear you on that point. I was sound asleep last night. I even went to bed on time. About 3 a.m., my daughter wakes me up screaming about a bug on her neck. She's in her twenties, and just graduated from college. Seriously? ...I was totally frustrated. I had so much energy yesterday and barely any today. I am going to push myself through in hopes that I can prevent eating through the day, which is often what I do when I am over tired. Hope things go better for you!

Just Believe!
