When you can't sleep, or wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep -- don't reach for sweet snacks! Have a half of a banana instead. I heard that bananas have something in them to make you sleep well, and it sure works for me without fail and guilt!! Our kitchen is never without bananas.

Hey everyone, was having a bit of insomnia last night and tried this free phone app called Rainmaker. You can find it in the App store as Rainmaker of if you search for insomnia. It's a sound program that creates all different kinds of soothing rain. It really helped me get back to sleep last night.
Sleeping consistently is one of the BEST things you can do to help weightloss
Insomnia, Stress, Anxiety, Depression and other things that can upset sleep regimens can seriously halt your weight loss success. Using a sleep mask ($4 at walmart) and also some over the counter melatonin ($7 at walmart) will help when insomnia is bad or you are a day sleeper and can't rest. It is safer than sleeping pills since it is a natural element in your normal system and you won't have that groggy feeling when you wake up.
