VEG954 did you change up anything on your list yesterday? Hopefully you'll sleep better tonight. Usually my problem is getting to bed late and getting up late which makes my meals later and later. Since I started the challenge though, on Friday I laid down at my appointed time and read a book, turned the lights out and I tossed and turned for 3 or 4 hours. I didn't get up and watch tv like I've done in the past. yesterday I focused on the things you suggested and things went better. The whole day went a lot better but I didn't go to bed as planned, ugh. So I'll work on that. emoticon .

Think I should join the sleep challenge again.
Didn't sleep well last night.
If this goes on for a few more nights I will begin again.

I have experienced many obstacles when it comes to developing healthy sleep habits.
Here are some of the things I've learned/experienced over the years...

Bedroom is used for sleep and sex only.
No TV in bedroom ever.
Room darkening shades are essential.
A cool bedroom is essential year round.
Limit fluids after 6 pm.
Close the kitchen at 7 pm nightly.
Nothing with caffeine after 2 pm.
Turn off TV and computer an hour before scheduled bedtime.
(Reading a boring book helps me.)

If all this fails to improve sleep quality you may need to have a sleep study test.

Good luck to everyone in the challenge.
Hope these suggestions will help.

Thanks VEG954 so much for the words of encouragement. w1d5, still not at my goal but making progress, lol. I'm going to make some interim goals to get me to my final goal. I've been establishing these bad habits for a while, so I shouldn't expect to change them overnight.

1. In bed by 1 or 1:30, lights out at 130 or 2, will gradually work on getting to bed earlier
2. Get up between 10 -11, breakfast nlt 12
3. Dinner by 9, kitchen closed nlt 10

Thanks again VEG954, I am making progress. w1d4, ate an hour after cutoff, got to bed an hour after planned but got up much earlier as a result of going to bed earlier. Rather look at this as not hitting my goals, I'm gonna look at my journey as making progress towards my goals. emoticon

This is a Challenge I'm motivated to do. Sleep is an issue; more than sweets. So here are my goals:

1. Start prepping for bed around 8pm.
2. Drink Bedtime tea around 7pm.
3. Shower.
4. Turn on fan for white noise.
5. Turn off phone.
6. Be in bed by 10pm.

My worst habit is having my evening meal late at night so I will try for starting it at 9.30 at the latest. That many not sound early but at present it's often between 10-11. If I can establish that as a habit I will then add another one.

Last drink of the day 8pm, Stop whatever I'm doing at 9.00pm to relax and get ready for bed. Lights off 10pm. Alarm 7am.

Those are my goals to begin with, I'm not sure what the best time for going to bed is, so I'm going to try it and see.

I'm an elementary teacher and have fallen into the bad habit of bad sleep in the summer. Staying up too late, sleeping in, and taking naps throughout the day. I've never been a good sleeper, but summer is worse. My goal is to back on track this month. Get to bed by 10:00. Get up by 7 (at the latest). Get moving and quit taking naps. I NEED to do this in order to be ready for school again!

My goals are a little scattered. I've had trouble sleeping pretty much my entire life. It's only gotten worse in my adult life. So my first goal is just to start the journal. Small steps.

my goal for week 1 is to keep my sleep diary and see if there are any patterns to my sleep. Another goal for the week is going to be to TRY to turn off all the devices at least half an hour before bed. I'd like to aim for an hour before bed, but I'm going to start with half hour and try to move up.

good luck to everyone!

Never made it to bed on time last night at 10 pm.
I just couldn't sleep.
Tried to nod off for half an hour and gave in.
Got up and read for a bit.
Back to bed to bed again.
Finally I nodded off at 11:30 pm.
Up at 6 am and full of energy.

My challenge is that I am a play at home mom to a 2 and 4 year old who get me up at different times in the morning, although lately it's right at 6:45. So with that said, I plan to go to bed by 11 pm to get my 8 hours of sleep. Unfortunately, I am married to a deputy sheriff so I rarely get to bed that early. I'm going to try to commit to this for the 4 weeks and see if it helps me feel better and help get my body back in shape.

This is probably going to be the toughest challenge I've ever done. I'm the type of person who sleeps odd hours (4am - 11am). Now that I'm on summer break from work, it's going to be exceptionally difficult do this. But.. Let's do it. I need to make better habits.

I read about the most restorative sleep is before midnight.
Bedtime has been 11 pm, doing very well with it.
I am up at 7 am every morning.

Over the weekend I am going to shift my sleep schedule.
I will go to bed at 10 pm and up at 6 am.

It gets so hot later in the day.
Getting up an hour earlier will give me the incentive to walk in the cooler morning.

Wish me luck!

My overall goal for this challenge is simply to form habits that I can still get the proper amount of sleep with everything I have going on. I am a full time college student, writing an honors thesis, I work 2 jobs, and am directing a show. Summer usually is not an awful time when it comes to getting slepp but I want to be prepared once school starts up again!

The minefields of life never go away, we just get better at navigating them.

The only place success comes before work is the dictionary.

For I know the plans that I have for you says the Lord, plans for good not disaster that shall give you hope.

Have been on a good sleep routine for over two years. It usually works except when I shake up the routine.
I do this by eating too late, stay on the computer too late, eat too late, exercise in the evening.

Thanks. Last night, he got home on time, but I still found it hard to sleep, and woke up later than I wanted. I'm glad that our summer plans don't start until the middle of next month. That gives me time to get back on track.

Yes I have trouble getting to sleep at night cause I tend to dozz during the day. I fight to stay awake and its hard. Then I get to a point then I'm wide awake again then I can't get to sleep at night when I'm to go to bed.

One Day at a time, and one step at a time. With God's help I will make it to my goal.

Clonazepam is the drug of choice for restless leg syndrome. I take it at night. I can see how taking it during the day would make you sleepy.

I should add also that I take medication that makes me tired. They are not sleep medications. They are anti-depressants. Wellbutrin, paxil, clonazapem. Also, I take quinapril for blood pressure control and metoprolo for blood pressure also. Both make me tired also. So, it's a real challenge trying to stay awake during the day. So, I end up sleeping and then at night I can't sleep. Like I said before, I have my days and nights mixed up.

Went to bed the first time about 11:30 pm. I didn't give it a chance! I got back up almost immediately.
When I finally tried again was 2am. Slept until my wife got up to get ready for her job. (I'm retired). After breakfast fell asleep from about 8:30am to about 10am. I guess that makes about 4.5 hrs. total.
Crazy schedule!
My first goal is to go to bed around 11:30pm and stay there until 7am.

My goals were to not let the stress of my daily life of living with an alcoholic husband affect my sleep. I did pretty good a few days but some days I let it get to me and I didn't sleep well. I am so very tired this morning. I always go to bed on time but I guess the worry follows me because I wake up in the middle of the night and then can't get back to sleep. I need to pray for my own peace and serenity more so I can sleep. Being so tired wears me down not only physically but also mentally. Here's to a new week!

My goals for this week are to
a) Be in bed before 11.
b) Wake at 6.


I do not have any electronic devices in my room at all. 3 years ago, I took them all out. I prefer it that way. No lights or humming to distract me. I don't even have an alarm clock. I use the alarm on my phone. I have 5 kids and the largest sleep challenge for me is to get the house settled and get myself in bed. I have no trouble sleeping, it is just getting ENOUGH that seems elusive.

My goals are to have my son a sleep by 9:30, which means story at 9:00. So, at 9:30 I would like to read and be asleep by 10. My main goal is to decrease my reliance on energy supplements and caffeine.

My goal is to be in bed by 10 pm on nights I do not work and by 1130 on the nights I do work. I will allow myself to wake up naturally in the AM but do not want to stay in bed any later than 8 am any morning.

My goals for the next week are the following...

1. Be in bed by 11 pm
2. All electronics are off and away from me by 10 pm
3. Journal, as detailed as possible, every day about my sleep

I think getting better sleep will help me be more motivated to work out during the day! This is currently my biggest hurdle to overcome :)

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

Tell us why you joined the challenges and what goals you hope to accomplish during the next four weeks!


My goal the first week is to be consistent with the sleep journal, get used to doing that.

Overall, I'd like to be comfortable going to bed at the same time every night and getting up at the same time every morning feeling refreshed and like I had a good night's sleep, with plenty of energy to start the day.
