Turn off everything with a lighted screen 2-3 hrs before bedtime. This includes, but is not limited to, TVs, computers, cellphones, iPads/iPods, etc. Also, try to eliminate all sources of light in your bedroom, like the LED alarm clock, the light from your charging cellphones, etc. All of these light sources interfere with the body's wake/sleep cycle & production od serotonin. Turning on the light if you go to the bathroom during the night also resets this cycle.
Help If You Have To Take A Ton Of Medications A Day
I have so many medications to take and have to take them at different times. I finally went out and bought 4 identical alarm clocks and set them for the different times that I need to take the medications. Then I went and got more to remind me to eat and when to take my blood sugars.
I just didn't want to keep resetting the alarm clock for each event so I got a clock for each one. My life has been so much easier.
I WAS WATCHING DR.OZ AND HE SAID THAT SLEEPING TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE CAN ADD TO WEIGHT GAIN SO I SAT MY ALARM FOR 7AM AND AS SOON AS IT GOES OFF,I TURN IT BACK ON.AND IM THINKING IT RESET MY INTERNAL CLOCK.NOW,IM READY TO JUMP UP AND FEEL GREAT!OF COURSE THE EXERCISE I GOT BACK TO IS A GREAT FACTOR IN IT ALL
