Doing better this week. Working out more to increase the likelihood that I'll be able to fall asleep by 11pm. That way, I can get up at 2:45 to greet my husband when he gets off work and get him a meal. Then it's off to bed from about 4am until about 9 or 10am. That gives me about 8 hrs. This may change in mid-July when my son starts band camp at 9am Mon.-Fri.

I have been following all the tips for better sleep but I have not been able to sleep all that great. Summer is particularly hard for me because my illness flares and then I am not sleeping as well.

HI.. I have made it to bed most days but 2 times just 15 and 20 min off and I am up at the right time. One night due to a storm I did find I did get out of bed and on the computer. I think I am getting better at creating a pattern... and not getting out of bed.

So far I've stuck to my goal of going to bed before midnight every week. I've found that I'll wake up between 7 or 8 fully rested and I'll get up. I usually don't wake up that early. On weekends or days when I get to sleep in, I'd sleep until 9 or 10 and I'd be tired when I woke up and tended to stay in bed longer, but not anymore. I feel better already and I'm being so much more productive.

Week two goal is to continue relaxation routine at night. Usually sleeping 11:30 till 6:30. Noted nights I didnt I ate later than normal and a couple of times late night snack may have caused sleeplessness and weird dreams. Changing those things this week

Good better best never let it rest until your good is better and better is the best

Update: I have done this most of the time, although I did stay up late last night, which will probably happen once in while.

This week my new goals are to keep up with relaxation before going to bed and not too eat much after dinner late at night. I will continue my goal of sleeping from 11:30 to 6:30. Seven hours works well for me.

Terrible sleep last night - went in intervals. Up at 4:15 this am doing "Spark" stuff on the computer. How ironic that I'm doing Week 2 better sleep challenge on a morning that I can't sleep! My mind has been on "fast forward" since 3:00 am - gearing to get back to work on Monday and already feeling stressed after 2 weeks holidays. Oh well, guess I'll try to go back to bed seeing that I don't need to be up early.

Making sure I don't eat passed 8:30 pm has definitely helped!

My friends,
Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who make this earthly pilgrimage with us. So be swift to love, make haste to do kindness, shower abundant hospitality on friend and stranger, walk in justice, that you may follow the path of mercy and love.

My issue is that I'm a restless sleeper and always have been, and there aren't a ton of resources out there for how to fix that. The ones that I have found all say that this is something that'll take a long time to fix, if I can fix it at all. I recently started practicing mindfulness meditation in the evenings and am taking melatonin before bed, but as predicted, the FitBit isn't showing much change. I know this is a long-haul process, so I'm not expecting much concrete progress by the end of four weeks.

I try to turn off my computer at 9pm. I'll drink a cup of hot herbal or sleepy time tea, take a hot shower and turn on my heated blankets so they are warm when I climb into bed. Now that the Olympics are over I am usually in bed by 9:30 - 10pm and sleep good through the night. I turn on a fan for white noise to drown out hubby's snoring and his pager and police scanner.

Making sure that I don't take my kindle to bed with me has helped my being able to go to sleep. I still wake up and have a hard time going back to sleep, if I get to sleep at all, but I am working on it.

I dont have a problem going to sleep, I have a problem staying asleep between the chronic pain and the muscle tremors. But, I managed to sleep 8 hrs per night 3 times this last week. Will be working on sleeping 8 hrs more often.

W2D7 - I've decided I'm a 8-9 hr person. 8 pretty good hrs last night. I wish I could have gone to bed a little earlier, but it was possible only one night this week. Still, the latest I've been up is 10:15.

Since I want to get up at 5 am, I have made 9 pm my bedtime, even on weekends.

I have noticed is I feel rested in the morning, even waking before the radio comes on.

The change I like the best is that I am more clear-headed and in a better mood. I am able to accomplish more of the things on my to do list. I feel like I am more in control of me.

Because of this challenge, I really do sleep better.

I like the way I am taking care of myself.

W2D1 - Slept nearly 9 hrs and had a 2 hr nap. I feel like I needed to catch up from running short all week. I meant to get up when the phone rang after 1 hr, but didn't wake up enough to get up. Hoping new HRT will make some difference.

I'm doing better with sleep this week. This is the only day I woke up at 2:30A. I find that it's when I'm stressed about something that I wake up early and then I need to analyze what it is that's got me stressed and then I take action so I can sleep good again. I'm also learning the importance of a routine so now when my alarm tells me it's 7P, that's when I do my bed time routine which is change into my PJs, brush my teeth, put lotion on my hands and feet if I feel I need it and get relaxed and into bed. It's been helping.

What's hard is we should eat 2 to 3 hours before bed, but that's like impossible for me because I work and when I get home and get dinner cooked, we are usually eating at 7:30-8P so going to have to work on that.

I used to wake up at 4 AM every morning. I didn't know why until one time I wore a sweater to bed. And I have not been waking up for the past week. I noticed that I am at my best when I sleep 10 hours. But since that is not possible very often I usually am okay with 7 and a half to 8 hours. I still need to start going to bed an hour earlier and read because that makes me sleepy.

I have noticed that I sleep better when I do not eat anything after 7 pm. I am very hungry when I wake up in the morning, but I do not wake up in the middle of the night. I wake up to go the bathroom at around 2 am each night because of all the water I drink, but I am not going to stop the water. I have not had trouble getting back to sleep after the bathroom but going to bed 30 minutes earlier at 10:30 pm and waking up 6:30 am seems to be making a difference for me. The mornings are not as stressful and that is the result I am looking for. I have even been cooking breakfast of eggs and pancakes for my girls in the morning before school. So nice!

I noticed that when I am extremely stressed during the week I have a hard time unwinding at night even if I am exhausted. Now I usually have to decide to go to bed at say 11:30 pm or 12 am. So far it has worked. I feel better when I get up earlier now. I have recently started to do relaxation techniques and learning how to cope with stress better. Since then I have gotten much better sleep.

I didn't get to sleep as early as I wanted to last night. I had trouble getting to sleep again. I have an idea I am going to try. I am wanting to try melatonin...I have heard it does help you sleep better, I don't want to use it all the time, just for a while to get into a pattern of going to bed early. I need to become stronger for me....be a little more strict on myself when it comes to sleep and exercise. My eating I think I am doing pretty good with for the most part. I can track everything and know how important that is. I know after looking back that I need to make better choices in the types of food I eat. I am going to be working on that in the next few weeks. I am going to really start working on this project and change my lifestyle for good.

pm.I am in the middle of week 2. I have realized that when I put my mind to it I sleep better when I get to bed early. my goal for the rest of this week is going to be getting to bed by 11 pm. I want to start exercising in the morning so going to bed early is a must. I will let you know how things turn out.

Had a really hard time sleeping last night. I'm not quite sure why, but two candidates come to mind. First, my husband and I watched a movie on our tv last night. It was a musicial with Barbra Streisand, so not exactly warfare, gloom and doom. Just fun and great music.

Also, I woke up later than I normally do yesterday. For the past few days I'd been up before 10:00 am, which isn't that normal for me. I lost track of the time I was in bed, though, and didn't get up until after 11:00 am. I think that may have done it.

I checked the clock and got myself out of bed a bit before 10:00 am this morning. I'm tired because of it, but that might help me sleep better tonight.

So for week 2, I chose to get to bed at least a half hour earlier and try to get into a routine. Both worked for the most part. The routine was a little easier because I already had the beginnings of one before starting the challenge. I found that I was able to fall asleep faster and get up without hitting the snooze button so often. Looking forward to week 3.

Going to try and get a set "bedtime". Also to exercise each morning I am able. And stay away from food and drink before bed. Will post in a week and update on whether or not I stuck to this and/or whether or not it worked!

I have started making sure I got to bed "alone" (without my phone). I put it to bed so to speak. I have been watching my naps more. 4 hours isn't a nap. I feel I have been sleeping better by these 2 things.

Go back to the Sleep Challenge home page and near the top you can see the steps for each week. There is a box to check when you're finished.

I'm sleeping so much better, starting to be able to turn the lights off within half an hour of my target time of 11. Getting 7-8 hours and not waking up more than once. Weekends are most difficult as it's impossible so far to get up at 7:30 when there is no real reason to. This seems to be all about discipline for me instead of physical. Going to the gym, stopping caffeine by early afternoon (coffee AND chocolate), and getting to bed consistently at 11 makes all the difference.

Good luck everyone,
Cat

I think I'm sleeping better because I've been exercising for 30 min each morning. Haven't seen a change in my weight but I'm finally able to sleep through the night instead of suddenly being wide awake at 3am.

I have added melatonin to my before-bed ritual and I avoid caffeine throughout the day.

Big difference between now and the beginning of week 1. Behavior modification patterns are becoming easier - going to bed at 11, watching what I eat after dinner. I find that now that I'm sleeping better I've missed hearing my alarm several days and ended up late for work. Used to be I'd be lying awake waiting for it to go off after not much sleep at all. I think my nerves are settling down.

I've found that since I started exercising regularly that I fall asleep more easily and also wake up more energized. This is the first time in my life that I have been able to wake up in he morning, sometimes before the alarm goes off, and feel really ready for the day.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

I'm sleeping better. My 5 year old is sleeping through the night and not waking me up, but I still get up 3 to 5 times a night to go potty. I'm trying to start drinking my water earlier and stopping earlier so I won't be going all night.


With Christ's love to all,

Dee

Goals for 2013:
Get started again with wheat or gluten-free eating and I'm going to make it this time by doing little steps.

I still have to work on getting into the habit of going to bed by 11 so I can 8 hours of sleep, but my sleep is better. I attribute this to renewed efforts at a regular exercise schedule. The exercise has helped me manage my stress and sleep better. Diet, stress management, sleep and exercise go hand in hand. You need all 4.

Didn't sleep very well last night but it is entirely my fault. I love to listen to Stewart McLean but the only time I can catch his program is at 11:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. I managed to stay awake for most of it last night but had a hard time falling asleep afterwards.

Tonight I have not excuses so hopefully it will be better!

It's hard for me to get 8 hrs during the week. I seem to catch up on sleep over the weekend. Weekdays average 6.5 hrs and the weekend average about 9.

Aiming for consistency. Trying to go to bed at same time each night and get up at same time, even if it was a rough night. Also trying not to take long naps.

I made some changes:

1. Moved bedtime up by 1 hour
2. I read for 1/2 hour and then turn out the light.
3. Cover the clock face of my alarm clock because it gives off a lot of light in the room.
4. If I do wake up I do not look to see what time it is.

I had three or four better sleep nights - averaging 7 - 8 hrs. per night. But then last night I had one of those toss and turn kind of nights so I don't feel so rested.

Tonight I am going to do Yoga - hopefully that will help me relax. At least I feel like I am making some progress toward quality and quantity sleep. emoticon emoticon

I am making changes to get 8 to 9 hours per night. Last night in bed by 9:30 AND UP AT 5:30 A.M.
The problem that I am having is my wife likes to stay up and watch TV in the bedroom. She also keeps lights on through out the house that shine into our bedroom.

Plus having a dog that barks whenever he hears a noise.

Reflections on Week 2.

Keeping up with both my dream diary and my sleep journal has been a bit of a challenge. I stopped having previous company nightmares. This is a good thing. I've also noticed that doing my leg stretches at night just before going to bed helps relax my body completely. Now to work on my neck and lower back - when I wake up - they are stiff. I don't know what is going to happen if I go back to a 9-5 job. I have found my sweet spot for time (stay up until 12-1am get up at 9-10 am) And I don't have that falling asleep all the time feeling.

Week 2 reflections, have been working on my sleep environment and more consistency in the times I have designated for going to sleep and waking up. Think that is progress.

Seeing a correlation between sleep quality and my morning blood pressure readings.

I started meditating just before I walk up the stairs to go to bed. This has really helped with my wake ups during the night. I now have 3 days when I have only gotten up once during the night. I have also managed to get 7 hours sleep for the same 3 nights.

goal is to be able to walk again

After starting this challenge, I've been able to notice a few of the triggers that wake me up at night. I was waking up 7-8 times a night on average, and I've gotten it down to just 2-3.

I'm still really struggling with getting up right away in the morning. Right now I've got a cold, and with my asthma trying to lie down at night is a big challenge. My lungs hurt and the albuterol gets me really jittery. But I'm going to aim to get into bed even earlier to help encourage bed time.

My husband and I had a wildly filled 2.5 day weekend vacation. Usually we go away to the mountains or lake for about 7 to 10 days but this time we went to see family and go to the AZ State fair. We had a lot of fun and were blessed with many breaks that stunned us. WE did NOT however, get near enough sleep. I started feeling like I was coming down with a cold on the drive home, which I hoped was just being over tired...no luck. I managed a broken up 6.5 hours, but truly after the weekend and now illness attacking, not enough. Here is to a better sleep week and getting well! emoticon

I am turning off the TV by 9 so that I can be in bed by eleven. I started this challenge on about 4 hours sleep a night. By the end of the first week I was up to 5-6 hours a night. my goal right now is more than 7. Right now I am getting 5-7 hours. I always wake at 6 AM that is not going to change, so I have to work on getting to bed. Slowly but surely I am making progress.

goal is to be able to walk again

Working on this challenge is helping me to really focus on getting 7-8 hours of sleep. Not that it always happens, but I've been doing much better. As always, sleeping regularly helps me work toward my other goals in life. I'm not overeating or finding myself eating processed or overly 'carby' foods in a futile attempt to jump start my exhausted brain. And, of course, I have energy to get out and go for a walk, and the will to stay focused on my goals.Now, how do I get myself to stick with this once the challenge is over? I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that might be a problem, having just rambled on about how important regular sleep is to my healthy lifestyle.

I sleep in a recliner because of the same problem. When I travel I use a zero gravity chair. I'm looking forward to getting an adjustable bed which will be more comfortable. Have you tried pillows supporting your knees and hips?

I am glad to see I am not alone. My biggest issue with sleep is pain. I can only sleep on my side and when my hips or knees start to hurt I wake up and roll over, when that side starts to hurt I wake up and roll over. This goes on all night and I wake feeling like I never went to bed. I am limited in what I can take to sleep because I drive for a living. At this point I am willing to try almost anything.

It is encouraging to see everyone's posts and know other people are working on this too! :) Right now a big part of my sleep issues is stress. I have been incorporating a lot of new stress-reducing techniques throughout the day, otherwise it just seems to build up at night. The most helpful things are:

Journaling at night
deep breathing
Tensing and stretching muscles
letting go of perfection (haha, that's a hard one)
listening to music during the day
listening to music as I fall asleep
Trusting God more
Enjoying His peace :)

Having a small snack an hour or so before bed has been helping too, also not drinking a bunch of water before bed (Duh, I should have seen that one coming! :D)
Thank you all for the encouragement and I hope you sleep well tonight!

Week2 turned into week 3 thanks to lack of discipline. I've really learned that daily excersise and late snacking are making or breaking me. Last week was one big mess for me, my new eating habits and tsleep. This challenge is helping a lot.

Just keep trying just keep trying!

Didn't get exercise in most days, and I could tell with my sleep. I don't know why I feel so anxious right now.Soothing music going on tonight to help me sleep. emoticon

Two things are working for me so far: turn the tv off before bedtime and no late night snacks.

Week 1 was pretty much the same as any other week, but I was more aware of WHY I wasn't sleeping. One time it was taking too long of a nap while another time was exercising too late and yet another was drinking a glass of wine too late. So I will continue to keep a journal, make sure my naps are just 20 minutes, not drink anything, and exercise before 7 p.m. and see what happens at the end of this week.

Allergies and heat in summer make it difficult to sleep through the night. I use a ceiling fan and A/C at night when necessary but I'm really looking forward to cooler weather, too.

I have been sleeping pretty restless this past week... way too warm and sticky and we don't have air conditioning in the house. I live on the Coast and it is typically pretty cool and not real humid so air conditioning is maybe only needed a couple weeks out of each year. This past week was one of them. I have been making a real effort to get to bed no later than 10:30pm and have been averaging a good 8 1/2 - 9 hours.of rest. Have been eating a small bowl of cereal an hour or so before bed and that also seems to take the edge off. On to week 3!

Finally started week 2: The hardest thing for me to do and probably the thing I need to do the most is stop using my bedroom for anything except sleep and sex. My bed has been my office because my DH when he's home uses the downstairs for his office and it is all open and he's always on conference calls. So today, I'm going to shift work things into my middle son's room since he's off at college and rarely home to use it and then straighten up the bedroom so it is peaceful and calm. The only thing I can't change is the TV because the direct TV link is in this room and no others. I'm going to tell my husband and son that are still home that they need to grin and bear it for the two nights I have shows I watch. They'll cooperate, they are good that way.

emoticon Met week 2 goals. Haven't had problems falling asleep this week and using another room as my office is working well. Still working on making bedroom a sanctuary, but clearing clutter step by step. Still wake up several times, but have been able to go back to sleep.

Keeping a sleep diary for the first week was really helpful. I also used my fitbit to check on the quality of sleep I was getting. Now, I'm ready for week two and I'm going to try to make a routine. I want to try to be in bed with the lights off by 10:30 every night, and I want to try and not eat anything after 8pm too, in keeping with the 7 hidden ways to get better sleep. emoticon emoticon

I have seemed to be getting 7 hours sleep total. I wake up between 2 and 4 times a night--usually to use the bathroom -- and go back to sleep fairly quickly. Once or twice a week I may wake up unable to go back to sleep (anxiety) usually ruminating over something or other. I still wake up tired due to the lack of sleeping through the night.

Hello guys, how are you doing so far in this challenge?
I am doing better. Been limiting the caffeine. Not doing it past 2:30pm.
No snacking (especially fatty foods) after 7 p.m.
And trying not to read/ do work on the computer before bed time.
(Will continue to update you). Looking forward to week three.
I will be training as a Book Seller at the college. It is for two months.
However, will log after I get back from my shifts. Have a good evening/night.

I have managed to do a lot this week. I am almost done with reorganizing my room. I have managed to reduce my nightly snacking. I also felt better, so I got a lot of activity in. I am hoping I can keep things going after I finish the challenge, as it has helped me a lot in just two short weeks of making the effort.

Just Believe!

I feel I slept good yesterday. I went to bed at my normal time and woke up at the right time. My sleep schedule for the next 3 days will be different, as I am not working, so I will sleep during the night. I will try to get my normal 7 hours of sleep.

Thank you Rockn2rollin, they make me smile too :) Everytime I see one of my family, it reminds me to stay on track. Plus it gives me reachable goals, keeps me motivated, and they are all a big part of my life, so now they are a part of my lifestyle change. They are very encouraging. But I will admit, going from the heaviest person in the house, to the lightest is very, VERY satisfying. Next goal. Lightest in the family!
