I SEEM TO WAKE UP ON & OFF ALL NIGHT. IT IS HARD FOR ME TO GET 6-7 HOURS OF SLEEP. EVEN WHEN I TRY TO STAY IN BED I CAN'T FALL BACK TO SLEEP. EVEN ON WEEKEND WHEN I DON'T HAVE TO GO TO WORK I AM UP....UGH!

ANY IDEAS??????

Thanks so much for the tips. I think this is one of my problems why I am not losing weight.

What are we risking?

Lack of sleep is linked to WEIGHT GAIN, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, depression and substance.

Tips for getting a good night's sleep.....

1. Stick to a regular sleep schedule.
2. Avoid exercising closer than five or six hours before bedtime.
3. Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol before bed.
4. Avoid large meals and beverages late at night.
5. Don't take naps after 3 p.m.
6. Relax before bed, taking time to unwind with a hot bath, a good book or soothing music.
7. If you're still awake after more than 20 minutes in bed, get up and do something relaxing until you feel sleepy. Anxiety over not being able to sleep can make it harder to fall asleep.

I can remember a period when I stayed up later which resulted in me eating Debbie snack (not just 1 but numerous ones-I just couldn't stop eating them) and going to bed around 2pm and needing to get up for work at 6am. This could have been related to stress/work, hormonal changes or food comfort.

I've gotten up an started reading again or just changed to a different bed (hubbie snoring), Yes he tells me I snore also.

Lately, Bill & I have done word search puzzles since nothing good on that (TV). Lots of times, I'm reading now at nite.
