I started having honey and lavender tea two hours before bed. I enjoy the tea.

I agree the more activity I have the better I sleep. I am getting up earlier on my days off. Now I just need to work on being more productive!

We can do this!

Week 3 pretty much the same. Bed between 10:30 - 11:00 p.m. consistently and getting up by 7:30 a.m. but still waking several times at night. I do find the days I have more activity I seem to sleep better so my coming week's goal is to be more active each day!

I always thought I was getting 8-9 hours of sleep each night. But since I started using the Jawbone up24 which tracks my sleep. I find I am averaging about 7.5 hours of sleep. Since taking the sleep challenge I have been trying to have regular bedtime and get up time. I do believe that is helping.

I had set a week 3 goal of being in bed at 11 and up at 9 but found if I had a busy day I would fall asleep quicker (at 10) and be up earlier and a little more refreshed. So I guess my new goal is to keep my days busy by exercising and getting out of the house and socializing more.

I like URSAMINOR1's goal of lights out by 10:30. This is a good cut-off point for me as well. I need to enforce another rule for myself...No caffeine (Diet Coke) after work. The cut-off time for this is 4 p.m.

Just take it one day at a time.

I set a week 3 goal of turning my lights off at 10:30 every night. I think I met that goal maybe 3 times. I'm going to repeat week 3.

Monday's are the worst, but I got up on time without pushing the snooze button. I can really see the difference that has come from following the advice of this challenge.

I have been going to bed earlier and sleeping for 4-5 hours a night rather than 2 or 3 at a time. i usually fall back to sleep after waking up but this challenge has been very helpful to me!

I'm sleeping 7-8 hours per night. Sometimes it's broken up, but I still feel rested in the morning. This might be my new normal.

Certainly sleeping better but there are still mornings when I have a hard time getting up. Also not get quite as much deep sleep as I would like but that could be because of the summer humidity...

I'm finding it easier to get to bed and up at the time I want and only waking one time during the night. Maybe it is helping with losing weight because my scales are moving down. ???

One day i drank coffee in the afternoon and i did not sleep from10pm-5am. Then the day was useless, so i gave up coffee on the spot. I miss it, but i would rather not take a chance. I need the sleep.

Now that i have been following a schedule to go to bed and to get up, things are looking up. I found i no longer need as much sleep as i thought i did..or once did. That is liberating...to know that if i sleep at least 6 hours, i can function just fine. The stories i was making up in my head about sleep were messing me up. My attitude has shifted. I am simply becoming aware of what the facts are..without my story.

I found that even though I love coffee, I should just drink less of it. If I don't need it, I should avoid it. And I should never drink it past noon. I'm good with one or two cups a week. I used to have at least two a day. I've kept with my schedule of going to bed before midnight. If I feel tired past 9pm, I'll take that as a sign that I should go to bed. I usually don't have too much trouble falling asleep if I'm tired, even if it's before 10pm. I found that I consistently wake up between 7 and 8am. It's beginning to push earlier. I'm more likely to wake up at 7 or even earlier than I am 8. I used to wake up between 9 and 10am. If I get at least 8 hours of sleep a night, I don't need any more. 8 hours used to seem like the minimum I could get without feeling like going back to bed the next day, but now I rarely sleep for more than 8 hours.

I drink a cup of peppermint tea before bed, sleep with an eyemask so i dont keep opening my eyes when trying to go to sleep, and stay on a consistent sleep schedu
E that works with all the hours of my work shifts so i dont have to adjust my sleep schedule when i work late or early. I also exercise as much as possible and stay active all day so i am tired when i go to bed.

I have been doing pretty good with my new routines. I usually have my computer turned off by 9pm. I then try to take a hot shower, drink a cup of sleepy time tea, and get into bed by 9:30. this week I had the flu so taking Nyquil really zonked me out but let me sleep.

w3d6 - ditto. I start with a sound deep sleep till 2-3. After that, I'm likely to have trouble going back to sleep and sleep lightly if at all. When I'm finally back into a deep sleep again--you guessed it--it's time to get up.

tracking my sleep has helped me to know that I naturally wake after 7-8 hours feeling rested, but I need to be in bed sometime between 9 and 10 in order to fall asleep. What a releif to be able to take charge of this aspect of my life.

W3D1 - Last night was good. I almost always sleep 9 hrs on Saturdays with no alarm clock; seems to be what my body needs. Going to bed earlier during the week does not seem to get the same results; I just wake up in the early hours and can't go back to sleep for awhile.

I have found for me to get good sleep, doing my bedtime routine at 7P and being in bed at 7:30P really helps. I'm also a fan of the slow wake up routine in the morning which is why I get up so early in the morning. I don't like rushing in the morning anymore. I like to take my time and slowly wake up and then I don't forget things. I found my key to taking care of my insomnia is to ease my worries so I'm always writing things down in my planner. Like I need to schedule some appointments with the eye doctor and gynecologist. I'm just breaking everything into manageable chunks so my anxiety stays low.

I have no issues falling right to sleep or staying asleep during the night. My issue stems
from not having time to fit in eight hours on some nights because of my schedule. I frequently get home after 10pm, try to go to bed by 11:30pm but even that's not early enough if I have to be up and out the door by 6:30am to start my next day. I love the things this challenge is teaching my but until I get a different job or make enough money to have my own car, there will always be nights where I simply can not get 8 hours of sleep at one time.

Awareness of how much better I feel WITH 8 hours vs WITHOUT 8 hours is really helping me! I am not 100% following my bedtime routine...but I do notice I'm looking forward to going to bed at 9pm. This allows me time to read and get sleepy - rather than my old routine of watching TV until I get tired, then going to bed and being too wound up to sleep!

Trying this over the holidays may not have been the best plan for me. Too many late nights trying to get presents wrapped!

I find that 8 hours is about the right amount of time for me. I can do a little less. Too much more, and my old body is sore.

This week was hard for me. I think the holidays a tossing a wrench in it and I shouldn't let them. This week will be better.

I slept 8 hours and then got up and took a long morning walk yesterday and again today. It's really helping me to get through the holidays with a healthy outlook.

I am doing better about sleeping through the night. I have struggled with this since my boyfriend and his cat moved in. This is my first cat and he will come into the bedroom and be vocal from 3-5am about wanting to be fed. He also likes to play during those times. I have tried feeding him when I get up to go to the bathroom, but he still disturbs my sleep. I ended up having to isolate him from us at night. That's better...now I just have to deal with my boyfriend's quirky CPAP machine.

I am doing great about going to sleep on time and immediately...still working getting rid of those things that wake me up after I'm asleep.

I get up and start gathering my water to go upstairs to bed. I get in bed no later than 10:15 and find that I sleep thru the night. I also am learning to let go of stuff so I sleep soundly.

I've been sleeping longer and better since I began treating my post nasal drip with a cortisone based nasal stray my doctor prescribed. Also listening to nocturnes a half hour before bedtime.

Sleeping better but I still need to work on going to bed earlier so I can get my full 7 in.

I was sick last week so I got a lot of sleep. Now I feel better and have been getting at least 7 hours a night. Much better than 4 weeks ago.

Another great night of sleep - I am waking up a little before the alarm and feeling rested. I have had more energy the past few days than I have had in a long time. I hope tonight's rest is just as good.

I just read the article...what causes insomnia...guess I will never sleep! I have almost all the risk factors, some, not many, I can take charge of, but some, are what they are and can't change them.

So, the next thing, I have tried the relaxation techniques, and am sleeping a little better. Still wake up groggy and confused, still am way tired about 2pm, but am not letting myself fall asleep before at lest 8pm. Any earlier and I am up and can't sleep at 1am.

Maybe, tonight???
