I may try moving my bedtime from 11:30 to 11:00, but when I tried that before, I still woke up early and just had longer to be quiet in my room before the cat and I opened the door to the rest of the sleeping household.

I'm going to try and go to sleep earlier than I normally do. I go to sleep about 11P or 12. I wake up at 7:30 but I still feel tired. My goal is to sleep about 8 1/2 hrs.

My goal is to improve the quality of sleep... I wake up in the night for the bathroom a couple of times, and , with an early start each morning, I often find I haven't slept well.

My goal is to get up to 6 hours of sleep per night in the next 30 days. After that, I see the doctor, and they can hopefully help me get up to 7 or even 8 hours per night. Right now I am getting 2-4 hours per night even though I'm in bed 9 hours.

I'm pretty good about getting to bed at the same time each night. I am good about falling back to sleep at 2 a.m. when the little dog needs to go outside.

Right now the weather is swinging between, snow, sleet, and sun so I want to take a nap. This too will pass, here's to life's interesting challenges. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had been down to the college where the young ones learn to be dental technicians. She did an excellent job cleaning my teeth. The disturbance irritated one of the teeth. During the night the pressure from the C-pap mask added a little more excitement to the mix. Abbreviated version, got into the dentist, something was wrong with a old filling, repaired, I should be as good to go tonight. See keep up on good health on many fronts.

emoticon Some nights I get 8 hours. Depends on if the dog needs to go out? Most times I can fall right back to sleep other times it is read a book for awhile.

My goals are to get at least 7 hours of sleep, 5 nights a week, and to start getting ready for bed by 9:30, 5 nights a week, and be in bed by 10, again 5 nights a week. I keep pushing myself to get one more thing done, then another, and going to bed later and later.

And you will look fondly back on those childhood years.

I did not get to sleep till 1:30 last night. So much for my 11PM goal. I think it was the Matcha tea. No caffeine after 11AM needs to be added to this goal for me.

Lights out by 11PM and maybe add some meditation or healing music to help combat the pain in the shoulder that keeps waking me. No food after 8PM either .

It's that lag time of the year when I want to hibernate.

I usually go to bed the same time. I have a special needs son. As soon as he sees me he vents about whatever is irritating me. After listening and doing what I need to get through those episodes leaves me drained of all energy. Then try to get back on track of what I need to complete in a day. You can try to tell him "I have xyz to do" that usually fans the flame for more confrontational responses. Oh bother it is one day at a time. Things got to get better.

My goal for week 1 is to really understand my patterns using the tracker. I fall asleep on the couch, then wake up at 3 in the morning to watch TV. It is a bad habit that has spilled over into my life since my father became ill. I am hoping that my determination is enough to undo this 2 year mess I am in...

Day 2 - up at 3am again. Ughh. I guess I knew nothing changes overnight. Hope to sleep through night 2....

Day 3 - fell asleep on the couch, but when I did get to bed I slept great. Feel refreshed today.

Finished week 1 - lack of routine is clearly my problem...Now it's time to realign!

My goal for tonight is to get to sleep by 1:30 a.m.! It's Friday and I bit off more than I could chew tonight. I had catch up since I hadn't been feeling well. So, threw caution to the wind and here I am on Spark just a few minutes past midnight. I plan to sleep in tomorrow. Though, this is obviously not ideal. I had planned to be done at eleven.

My goal for the week ahead is to do relaxation by 9:30/10:00.
I've got to turn the computer off earlier. I usually do but every once in a while, I overdo it.
I've heard no screen time an hour before bed. Does anyone else practice that?
I'll have to think about it.
I'm going to start with the relaxation goal.

Good night, friends!

I usually go to bed at the same time each night.

My house guests chooses to stay up later, he likes to watch those scary movies, which in turn spill sounds into the sleeping area. I do my best to tune him out. Then the dog has to make her trips to the bathroom. Little dog, little bladder. I usually fall back to sleep no problem. Sometimes I wake feeling like a train ran me over. Always room for progress. emoticon steps.

My internal clock usually wants to go to sleep early morning & sleep late into the day. My life requires I be up at 5am & getting home between 8 & 9pm (sometimes later). I use carbs for energy & to stay awake. It is all catching up with me & I want-need to change. Having slept last few days, this seems like a good day to begin a better schedule.

I need to reset my internal clock. I want to sleep at night and be rested and awake during the day. Is that too much? I'm not able to work anymore so my alarm clock is only used for appointments. I started staying up later and later until now my internal clock and chronic pain have made me a nap taking vampire.

My goal is to get 7 hours solid sleep. I have a fitbit and it seems to track it pretty good. Looking back... I see a couple of naps I took last week... and surprisedly, both happened after the only 2 nights where I actually did get 7 hours sleep. Hmmm. Perhaps I do better with 5.

My second goal is to do the diary although from looking at what fitbit showed last week... that may be a better indicator of how I am doing.

I am trying to combat stress, and that means getting more than 4-5 hours of sleep. So my goal is to get no less than 8 hours of sleep each night...more on the weekends.

I've struggled with sleep at least since I was a junior in high school. Now I'm 45 and due to my life's only getting busier, I've realized I can't delay fixing this behavior.

My problem has mostly stemmed from FOMO (fear of missing out), I think. I've had a sleep study and there was nothing abnormal.

Over the last few years, with therapy, reading, and the support of my partner, I've learned a lot about good sleep hygiene and have implemented solutions here and there. The main thing I've struggled with, unfortunately, is the real key piece of this whole endeavor: getting more sleep. :-) Consistently and sustainably.

I've always been the kind of person to fall prey to the all-or-none thinking traps, and the same applies to sleep. I've felt like, "Well I need to get 8, 9, or 10 hours of sleep every night or else what's the point!" Obviously, that's not helpful. I assessed where I am, and what I can do right now. I've decided that getting at least seven hours of sleep per night would be a HUGE improvement over where I've been for the last few decades. I can get a little extra on weekends, so I also have a weekly sleep total in mind, which is fifty-one hours.

So, here are my sleep goals:

1) Get 7+ hours of sleep every single day, unless there are really exceptional circumstances that can't be avoided.
2) Don't use getting home late or missing bedtime in order to fit in my dinner or other "essential" activity become an excuse for missing my bedtime and getting sleep, which is by far the more important thing for me right now
3) Get 51 hours of sleep per week
4) Stick to my bedtime no matter what

Thanks for reading!

I joined this challenge Oct,11, 2016 and have thus far failed to complete week 1, but I AM NOT GIVING UP UNTIL I'M DONE! My goal is to get in a good, 8 hour UNINTERRUPTED sleep, which I've learned how to reach b:y:

1) Limiting caffeine to below 400 mg/day, and then before noon! I used to drink up to 9 Monster Java coffee drinks throughout the day! That was almost 2000 mg caffeine/day!

2) I've also readjusted my nights from days, back into nights and days from nights, back into days by setting an alarm clock from 9 pm - 6 am, giving myself "Thunder and Rain"music off youtube and an hour to fall asleep! That's been working very well. I especially like:

This reminds me of holding hands with my younger sister during a particular heavy thunderstorm where the house was shaking during the thunder. Was scared then, but now, soothed from the love we had as sisters!

On my better sleep challenge, I am writing on my journal. I dont have trouble falling asleep because I go to sleep at 11 or 12 . If I go to sleep earlier, Im not able to sleep. But I do wake up tired. So I am going to work on my sleep.

I have a C-pap machine and it let's me know how many hours I sleep. It became an required for me because I have a commercial license. One of those sitting on the border so doctor elected here you go add this to your repertoire to stay healthy.

Goals..
Keep the sleep journal is one, definitely. I think I need to learn to stay in bed when I first open my eyes. Once that happens, I am up!! And want coffee!!

For now a more realistic goal is to go to bed at a reasonable time, like 9 or 9.30 PM. Sometimes I get caught up in what I'm doing, like walking on the treadmill, and forget to go to sleep at a good time.

I think those are good for now. Thank you!

I have so many goals in this area of my life and I have been working on and off on this for a couple of years and having short term but not long term success. I realized recently that this has got to be higher up on my to do list if I am going to be able to make other things happen with weight loss and exercising.

My goals for week 1 are:

1) keep the sleep journal

2) review it the following day and make a new goal list to start to follow the second week.

In this hot humid weather it I hard sleeping. The fans are running....we do not have AC, at least the air is moving. If there were no kids in the house I might elect to sleep totally in the birthday suit.

My goal is to get at leas 7 hours of sleep, because actually I'm having between 5 to 6 hours but I feel tired, blue, irritable, and I've gained a lot of weight.

Going to bed a 1/2 earlier than when this becomes easier I;ll do another 1/2 hr earlier.

This weekend I HAVE to be up on Fri by 7:40AM,,, so if I can sleep by 1 that'll be TERRIFIC, but not if I'll sleep. If I can even just get myself to relax when not sleeping at that time,,, I'll do well enough. Saturday I HOPE to be asleep by 4AM. Etc,, this challenge DOES WORK I did this in 2012 ,, I had to do it twice,, back to back (Along with a friend and co leader on another team a part of the 5% ,,, where we do our best to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks) so I am hoping she'll rejoin and we can encourage each other.

I already have a set bedtime and wake-time; it's taken 6 months to make them a habit. Now I need to work on relaxing before bed. I'm going to try showering at night instead of morning, then reading before bed instead of watching TV or working on the computer. My goal:

** Bathe at 9:30 pm, then relax until bedtime. I will do this at least 4 out of 7 days this week, starting today.
