Ha epic fail night #1. Toss and turn for an hour and then up to the couch for some TV. I am going to give it my best shot for this challenge and do again if needed. This eve I am logging off electronics 1 hr before bed. Having a cup of warm water and relaxing with a magazine.

The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

I made the mistake of enjoying three glasses of wine last night - I woke up at 2:50am and tossed and turned the remainder of the night. Yes, life is unfair and alcohol causes me not to sleep at night. That's just the way it is.

I went to bed at 9:45PM last night since had to get up by 5:45AM. It took a little while to fall asleep even though I was really tired. I got woke up at 12:20AM and again at 4:15AM to go to the bathroom. I did get up without hitting the snooze button. I really should be getting off here and getting ready for bed but don't have to get up early tomorrow.

I have been cutting down on my caffeine to help me sleep better at night (and lower my anxiety level). I now drink just two 6oz cups of coffee first thing in the morning (5am). I find that I am tired throughout the morning, but that I usually feel more awake around 2pm. I started thinking that perhaps the coffee is making me more tired - so I did a Google search. The article I found (not sure of my source though) does suggest that I may feel more awake if I cut out my morning coffee all together. I have two weeks off for Christmas so I plan to use that time to cut out all coffee from my diet. This should be interesting!

I slept good last night. I guess it was a matter of telling someone about the visits that may have stopped the visitors. Well, I did get some restful sleep.

No. I sleep for approximately 1.5 hours then I wake up because of family male visitors. They are not really here; however, they feel as if they are here.
