My regular night of sleep is five or five-and-a-half hours. Then I'm awake and there's no getting back to sleep.

After 1 week of keeping a sleep journal, I have decided to set the following goals for myself:

1. Establish a set bedtime routine
2. Go to bed earlier each night until I am getting to bed around 11-12
3. Do not go back to sleep when I wake up if it is 9am or later
4. Pray before bed each night.

I usually do really well at anything for a few weeks, or even months, but then I kind of trail off and find myself right back where I started from. But, I will never stop trying.

My sleep better goal is to start a relaxing 30 minutes before bedtime habit instead of watching TV.

*update- I slept the whole night through last night! I had a mega workout yesterday, and I turned off the TV an hour before bed and just read a a pleasant book before bed.

My ultimate goal is to sleep about 7 hours a night without the help of any sleep aides! Most of my life has been stressful with very irregular sleep patterns depending on where I was (I traveled a lot for work). The stress is gone but the sleep still eludes me!

My goal is to get at least 7 hours of sleep between my 12 hour shifts. Also not to sleep over 9 hours on my day off. I also want and need to do something different during that 3-5 slump on my days off instead of taking a nap.

We can do this!

I get up at 5 for work and wasn't getting to bed in time to get the 8 hrs. my body apparently needs (I've been in denial a long time!).

Wasn't getting to bed at 9 until I began turning off TV at 8 (or leaving the room where the TV is) and starting my night routine then: no computer nor TV after 8. It worked: I am in bed by 9, grateful to sleep. I am sleeping better without world problems, talking heads, nor murder/crime shows in my mind right before sleeping.

Well it's been day 4 (or is it night) and I haven't even started the sleep journal so that is first on my list.
2. No TV and no iPads after 10pm - this means recording favourite programmes to watch at a more convenient time.
3. Make sure my toddler's sleep routine is set so that she's asleep when I'm asleep ie she can only have one hr nap during day. Unfortunately she slept for 2 hrs today and she sabotaged my efforts to sleep early. Now she's asleep but I'm wide awake. Hence on iPad at 12.11am!

I have chronic pain so I never sleep a full night. My goals are to go to bed at a regular bedtime...10 to 10:30 and wake at 8:30 at the latest. I have always needed a lot of sleep so that allows me 10 full hours. For the waking up part I am not sure what I can do. Right now I am trying to get back to sleep as soon I am done going potty or letting the dogs out. Maybe I will learn how to sleep all night through this challenge:)

6 sometimes 7 days a week my hubby has to work, so our wake time is 5am. My struggle is getting everything completed before bedtime, which should be earlier than it has been (10:30). My goal is to start tomorrow with an after school schedule and try to stick to it all week. I feel my best when I get to bed by 9. We shall see. :0)

After writing in my sleep journal for a few days, I realized that maybe I was focusing on the wrong issues. Since I work from home, my schedule is really up to me. So Instead of concentrating on an earlier bedtime (which I never seem to be able to stick to), I am going to concentrate on a consistent earlier wake time and ten minutes of sunlight exposure. Hopefully, this will reset my circadian rhythm and I will be tired and ready for bed earlier. I'll keep track in my journal and see how this works out. And just keep experimenting until I get the results I want.

I joined the challenge because I always seem to be exhausted. I have a really rough time falling asleep sometimes. And also because I have so little energy when I am exhausted that I can't do what needs to be done in life.

My goals for the challenge as a whole are to develop a regular sleeping schedule and to get 8 hours of sleep a night. And to no longer be a slave to being a night owl.

For this coming week...
1. I want to go to bed by 11 pm at least three nights this week.
2. And to go with that I want to wake up by 7 am the following mornings.
3. Get in my workout and reading earlier in the day, 5 times this week, so that I don't have to stay up to do them before bed.

Good luck to everyone doing the challenge! And sweet dreams!

My goal is to stay as close to my sleep pattern as I can while traveling. I am naturally an early bird for getting up. When connecting points run beyond adjustments need to be made.

My goals for the month will be:
-- Be in bed on time at least 3x/ week (8 hours before I have to get up)
-- Get up on time at least 5x/ week
-- Make one specific action towards good sleep hygiene each night for a month (such as no internet use or food several hours before bed, yoga before bed, etc.)

While I have complained about the insomnia for years, I am finally ready to really try and do something about it. My goal is to practice good sleep hygiene- turn off the screens an hour before bed, etc. The screens are my worst hurdle, but I am ready to do whatever it takes to improve my sleep.

I joined because I need to start getting more rest.

My goal for this challenge is to start getting to bed by 11:00pm and getting up by 6:30am.

I would like to learn to be a morning exerciser and to do that I will have to be up no later than 6:30 in order to leave on time for work. emoticon

I noticed that I have very little issue going to bed at the same time every night. It is staying asleep or getting right up at the same time every day when the alarm goes off.

I've always been a night owl and usually stay up util 1AM. But it's hard because I have work or class the next day and I'm exhausted for the rest of the day.

I haven't been sleeping well as of late- I go to bed too early and wake up several times throughout the night (my cat wanting out at 3am doesn't help much either!). I am finding myself tired and worn out by early afternoon- my motivation has certainly been lacking! I joined this challenge to set better sleep habits and get more of a peaceful night's sleep!

God is good- no matter what!

I have not had computer for a lil while but a lot has been going on and it has made it even harder yet for me to sleep. Beginning of October I quit my job. Spent 20 wonderful days with family and now moved to Egypt. 8 hour difference with Minnesota but I had always worked nights and slept days do to my job. I had thought the move would have been easy on my sleep patternsbutin turn it has gotten even worse.I cannot seem to fall asleep until about 4 am. I have been trying to go to bed around 11-12 but I just toss and turn.I am finding that once I get to sleep I seem to get enough sleep but by 6pm I need a nap. I do not let myself nap or I cannot get to sleep even by 4 am. Any suggestions?

Two simple goals for me:
1. Lights off by 10:30 every week night.
2. No eating within 2 hours of sleep time.
