1. Be in be by 12 am and up at 8 am (I will likely fall asleep at 11 and be up at 7 some nights - but this is nowhere near what's happening now!)

2. Take a warm bath before bed and read before bed. I will try to keep my YouTube hypnoses to the daytime as they are on computer (phone) screen) but they often put me to sleep.

It's so hard not to go on Fb & respond to email before bed. Maybe I can do that before the bath!

I don't know what my goal should be here - get 9 hours of sleep every night till the end of the year? as often as possible, factoring in the meowing cats and all the other causes? OK will try that.

Whoa, my housemate's horrible habit's have given me extreme insomnia problems.

Like her cat crying a 3:30 every single morning to go out.
If i don't get up and go downstairs to let him out he cries for two or three hours and i can't get back to sleep.

Can't nap properly during the day b/c the other cat is napping on my bed for hours.

house mate watches tv until like 2 or 3 in the morning with the sound very loud and all the lights blazing.

a couple of months ago i might have given myself caffeine poisoning by drinking so much coffee - i still don't feel better health-wise. trying to keep to decaf tea only.

trying to go to bed earlier and earlier.

I really ought to move out to ever get decent sleep again.

My sleep has been so off track for a long time now. Having a baby has definitely made it more difficult to get a good nights sleep, but I have also been going to bed far too late as well and then, come morning, I don't want to get out of bed.
My goals for this first week are to get to bed by 10:00 pm every night and to wake up at 6:00 am each morning. It's going to be a bit tough, since my husband is a night owl who refuses to change, but I know I can do this. I need to get my sleeping on track so I can have more energy through the day.

You must nourish:
-the body with healthy food
-the heart with joy, compassion, and love
-the mind with knowledge
-the spirit with equanimity and self-awareness"

I try to go to bed but my bf stays up watching TV which spills into the sleeping space. Although I'm sleeping not as soundly as I should. Then the dog wakes me up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. So my sleep pattern is a couple hours, interruption, sleep a couple more hours. I wear a C-pap so sometimes the suction breaks so I wake up with a dry wind burned eye.

share your goals ~
first I want to comment on watching TV at night all my life {I am 63) I slept with the TV off until I married my husband 12 years ago so I can sympathize with anyone having issues with TV I chose not to turn the TV off I know I know ! but my cable company has multiple music channels and so I put stingray spa or nature sounds there are no picture flying around but gentle music
ok goals
1. first and foremost do the sleep journal
2.go to bed at the same time
3. be active on the sleep forums I found that reading other members comments this morning has been very enlightening thanks for the information! emoticon

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.

Hi all

It's the second time around for this Challenge for me. Sleep is so important and I need to get my focus back on-track. My goals are:

* Get to bed by 10:30 pm and get up at 6:00 am to exercise
* Do a relaxation breathing exercise when I go to sleep 4-7-8
* Keep a sleep journal on my blog to keep focussed

I don't know if anyone has ever heard of the 4-7-8 technique:

4 inhale for four counts
7 hold your breath for seven counts
8 exhale for eight counts

I do a similar technique in yoga so hopefully this will be doable. I'll let you know how I get on.

-Begin the first week of the '30 days to better sleep' calendar

Week 1 sleep goals:

1. In bed by 8:45 PM (I get up between 4:00 and 5:00 AM)
2. Do a guided meditation before going to sleep (using ear buds on nights that my husband is home!)

I always get up on time (4:00-5:00 AM), but I often short myself by staying up late (past 9:00 PM). And on nights that my husband is home (2-4 per week), I often won't do my guided meditations before bed, and then I don't fall sleep well, and I have disturbing dreams. If I use my earbud after we go to bed, I can have the best of both worlds: go to bed with my husband, AND sleep well after a guided meditation. I WILL DO MY GUIDED MEDITATIONS AND USE MY EARBUD!

My week one goals have been to limit my afternoon nap to 20 min. and get to bed by 11:00pm. It hasn't worked every night, but being aware of the time and aiming for these goals has been one step forward.

I have been a member of the team for a long time, check in occasionally. So trying to make a commitment to better sleep. My challenge is that I travel for work and I am skipping across a 12 hour time zone change on a regular basis so my schedule is very odd. I am finding that spending a few minutes doing some relaxation meditation is very helpful. So committing to spending 10 min when I go to bed and do the meditation. emoticon

After keeping a sleep journal for a little over a week, I have determined I need to develop a bedtime routine. My goal for this week is to stick to a bedtime of 11:30pm.

My goals for this challenge are :
1- No electronics at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
2- Listen to meditation CD for 15 minutes prior to bed.
3- If I wake up prior to 6 hours of sleep, get up, read for 10 minutes, and go back to bed.

So far I have been doing OK, I have been up by 8:00 every morning but my bed time has been 10:00, 10:30 and last night 11:45. And of course I never fall asleep very quickly and wake up several times a night.

I'm nearing the end of week 1 and didn't even think to set a 'goal'. So here goes:
My goal this week (week 2) is to try to make sure that I'm giving myself 1 solid hour before bed with no TV or computer. I was going to say No Screens, but I'd like to be able to read on my Kindle. And to make sure that I am In Bed no later than 11 pm. If I can pull this off, I will try to adjust bedtime earlier in future weeks.

Reviewing my journal, I have a lot of bad habits.

I eat late at night
I drink a lot of water in the evening and through the night
I go to sleep with the tv on.
I don't go to bed until 1 or 2 a.m.

So my goals are to go to bed before midnight, without the tv on. To have dinner earlier (by 7 pm at the latest) and to stop drinking water during the night. I think the tv habit will be hardest on me since I have used it forever as a way to fall asleep. It gets rid of the thoughts that run through my mind and keep me awake.

I cannot change yesterday, but I CAN change today.

I want to look forward to going to bed instead of avoiding it out of anxiety. In addition, I'd like to fall asleep more quickly, sleep through the night without thrashing around, and wake up after eight hours feeling refreshed. It sounds nearly impossible, but I have hope!

Bed by 10, up at 5. Striving for 7 uninterrupted hours. That would give me a huge bonus over what I've been getting in decades. To do this, maybe 1) Continue building a habit of walking between 7-8 p.m. and 2) develop a nighttime slowdown ritual of some sort.

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.

Remember: I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!

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.

The going to bed is not a problem. My body says get there or fall asleep where you are. Right now I struggling with severe pain in my knee, sleep with it elevated.

My goal is to get at least 7 hours of quality sleep per night. Currently I am sleeping around 7-8 with only 5-6 hours of sleep. I am restless the other 1-2 hours causing me to feel tired/sleepy the following day.

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.
