The first 2 weeks were easier. I had a few incidents that cause me to go to be later than I wanted to. I did make it to bed within my range 4 times this week. I am going to work hard to make it to bed within my range every night. On to Week 4 of the challenge.

I have really made an effort to be in bed by 10, and I let myself read for awhile (until my eyes get droops, at least) - lights out has generally been before 11. When there's something I want to watch on TV or do later (closer to that bedtime), I take care of others things (shower, brushing my teeth earlier - which is awesome for helping to control late night eating, BTW - and that has helped.

I learned that I have been falling asleep in less than 10 minutes, which is GREAT.

I've been waking up a lot, and I can't figure out why. I was sick the week before last...and there were some restroom breaks, but those went down this week.

My alarm is set to go off at 6:50, although my husband gets up earlier. However, I keep waking up BEFORE, and that's frustrating. I like to stay in bed, and I like to be asleep until the absolute last minute in the morning. I wonder if I can go lights out a little bit later?

The really Big "DUH!" moment: I've been sleeping good on the days I work up an exercise sweat for at least 20 minutes. I haven't taken any OTC sleep helpers or any other meds to help sleep since I started working out every other day a week ago.

I am getting better sleep now. I usually fall asleep between 11 and 12, and wake up between 6 and 8. When I compare this to a few weeks ago, it is a big improvement. I was up until 2 or 3, and only sleeping 4-5 hours a night. I am also sleeping more soundly, sometimes not even remembering waking up.

The changes for me:
1. Establishing a bed time no later than midnight.
2. If I do wake up, staying in bed and trying to go back to sleep.
3. Avoid eating after 8:00.
4. Daily exercise. I especially sleep well the days I go swimming.
5. Not watching TV or reading in my bedroom. I use our guest room for those things, and then go to bed when I'm ready to go to sleep.

Reading before I go to bed really helps me to fall asleep!! I stick to a bedtime routine during the week, but I'm still struggling (and not really willing to) to get up early/go to bed early on the weekends..

I am beginning week three. I was doing quite well at the end of the second week, was getting good sleep. Then this week happened. A variety of things keep waking me in the night, and last night I was so swamped with things that I had to get done that I ended up going to bed late. I do have a goal bedtime but I missed it last night. I only ended up getting about 5.5 hours of sleep, and oh did I feel it today! I am going to do better tonight - I have prioritized my evening tasks and things are going much more smoothly today!

I am also doing better with my sleep habits - I have been dealing with a UTI the past week, so I was having to get up frequently (& urgently!) in the night, but with my medicine that is solving itself. I find that I don't need more than 6.5 to 7 hours sleep each night, because I am waking up naturally at that time without alarms. Now with DST to deal with, I am having to adjust again. Good challenge!

No fad diets for me!

No one said it'll be easy. It may be really hard. Let's do it right and make it a new lifestyle.

I have been sick this week, so going to bed early often skipping using a technique. Thus this has also lead to wake up on time to just eat breakfast and go right back to bed. But, when sick if my body wants sleep I will give it to it.

The little changes I have made so far is helping me sleep better. I make every effort to have a consistent going to bed time. I wake up at the same time each morning. On average, I am getting 6.5-7 hours of sleep. Because I stop drinking water a little earlier, I only get up two times a night instead of four. I still have some tweeking to do, but I have seen improvement.

Sleeping somewhat better. I'm making a point of not watching so much TV just before bed and reading something less involved as well to help my brain wind down. Also, with my increased exorcise regimen, I'm falling asleep a little faster.

So far the counting backwards exercise is WORKING! Before I would be in bed between 8:30-9:30pm. Now I'm in bed at 10:15pm, and waking up 6:30-6:45am. I'm feeling more rested in the last week than I felt in the last 3 months. emoticon emoticon

This is tough! When it works, I'm elated. When it doesn't work, I'm frustrated!
Sometimes I think I'm a hopeless case. But, I keep going. emoticon
I have been pretty well sticking to a set schedule. I've been going to bed at my set time whether I'm feeling sleepy or not and I've been getting up at my set time whether I'm sleepy or not. emoticon And, as hard as it is, I'm finding it easier to kick myself out of bed than to drift away to slumber-land.
I have often been told that if I will work more and exercise more and really wear myself out that I will sleep better. I've NOT found that to be the case for me. It seems the more I do, the more my motor goes on overdrive and I find it more difficult to wind down.
Therefore, I have decided that now I need to try and do all I can as soon as possible after rising and then allow several hours of calm, quiet, relaxing time in the evening to try and wind myself down some. And, I need to just accept the fact that I'm probably NOT going to get EVERYTHING done that I want to in a day and that it REALLY IS OK. I need to just let it go and be content knowing I've done what I can do and the world will go on... {and most everything will still be there waiting for me to take care of later along with a zillion more new things just waiting for me!!! } (Ignore all that last part... just my wound up crazy brain trying to take in the WHOLE ELEPHANT!!!)
*Breathe* So, Yep! That's what I'm going to try.
Crazy thing is I was up to around 6 hours a night for 3/4 nights in a row and then without changing a thing, I've gone down to around 4 hours a night. Guess I should be glad that it's a bit better than the 3 I was averaging, huh?
Oh well. It will work out. Right? emoticon emoticon

I have been doing very well with my sleep challenge. It is funny I keep reminding my children we have a bedtime so we are healthy. It really feels good not only getting myself on track and sying there but making it a norm for the whole family!

I am sticking with some of the challenges - trying to hit my scheduled sleep and wake times at least 3 days a week. I am shooting for at least 7 hours of sleep and have been getting that, but it has ranged from 7-8.5 hours with some fluctuation in sleep and wake times. I have been getting into bed on time most nights and have been shutting off computers and devices within 30 minutes of sleeping most nights. Overall, while my sleep is not ideal right now, I have made progress the previous weeks and "good sleep" is something I actual think about and it helps me do that. I have definitely reduced my use of sleep aids as well, I only used an over the counter sleep aid once in the past 2 and half weeks and specifically chose not to when in the past I may have done so.

I am still working on sticking to a relaxing nighttime routine. I struggle with this. I get busy & lose track of the time. But, I am very consistent with my wake-up times.

I got off track with my sleep challenge around the holidays, so I'm going to make today:
Week 3, emoticon

Some nights I do get sleepy around 12 or 1, and one night I stayed up until 5am. That particular night I was feeling creative, so I had to write down what was running through my head before I could rest. That's the same way it is with my art sometimes, although I haven't painted lately. Does anyone else have those creative bursts that keep them up?

I continue to do research on our adrenal glands, which can "burn out" over time if we keep abusing them with improper sleep. Our adrenals repair themselves between 11pm and 1am, so really I should be trying to go to bed around 10pm. I'm going to bite the bullet and try that tonight. But I believe this will just take discipline, just as I do with my eating habits. I also need discipline in my fitness, because that's hit or miss. Exercise definitely helps promote sleep.

Finally got 8 hours last night. I have some time off work so I'm hoping I can reach a more relaxed state to sleep in. The Badger sleep balm really works, somehow, and it's lovely to give my temples some rubbin' right before I hit the hay, plus a little on my lips and some on my hands; they need extra moisture right now anyway so it's good. I got a little sachet from my coworker that I put in my pillow. It has all sorts of hippy-dippy things in it, but one ingredient is mugwort which is supposed to be for good sleep and it does smell fantastic. When I wake up in the middle of the night I'm able to fall asleep much faster with a, "Don't be silly! Just go to sleep!" message for myself and a little scrunch of the sachet to make it smell good again. I hope to continue these things along with sleepytime tea when I have the chance.

So far I've been sleeping better. I think my body is selling into a routine (albeit, a little quicker than my mind some nights). I've been getting tired around the same time every night and even waking up most mornings a couple of minutes before my alarm clock.

I have been doing really well so far. I do not hit the snooze button. I have been getting really good sleep these past few weeks. I think joining this challenge has helped me because it's something I made myself focus on instead of just saying I'll get around to it. I still have issues with my sleep mask but I don't think that will ever go away.

Nothing is working for me. I had to stop the sleep journal because I was actually getting up to write down my wakeup times and then lying in bed worrying that I wouldn't remember how long I'd been awake. I stopped using my Kindle in bed and stopped my bedtime cup of tea--and lay awake for ages unable to get to sleep. Finally returned to tea and Kindle after 4 days and that proved better than doing without. I go to bed early; the room is dark and quiet; I actively practise deep breathing--actually yoga breathing for calm and relaxation. I go to bed early and get up early including weekends. I've tried all the natural sleep aids and I'm actually taking a mild anti-depressant that my doctor believes will help--and it does in terms of shortening the time I lie awake at my wakeups. It's so frustrating.

At the end of the third week I am starting to create better habits. It has taken some time to work my bedtime into an earlier one. I was so used to going to bed late that I just couldn't fall asleep at a normal time. But for the past four nights I have been in bed before 11 and have fallen right to sleep. I am sleeping better and waking up earlier which is allowing me to exercise. It's a win-win! The bonus is my husband is starting to follow my example.

I continued with my bedtime routine of lavender sheets, melatonin, and lullabies. I fell asleep in 5 minutes each night. I slept an average of 8 hours all week. My energy level was high. Will continue bedtime routine in week 4 and beyond. I go to bed at 6 pm or 7 pm and get up at 2 am or 3 am. I like being up refreshed in the still of the night emoticon

I've been going to bed around 9-9:30 each night and waking up at about 5:30 to work out. It's easy to go to bed earlier but the waking up early to work out is the most difficult. I'm working on it though.

This has been a really useful exercise. I'm not sleeping so much better yet but I'm certainly seeing the links between being tired and overeating. Also between certain foods and being wakeful. So it's progress, it's been well worth doing.

I'm at the end of the third week and incredibly pleased with the results thus far. I've been sticking to them, even when it's difficult, especially when not eating after a certain time each night, and waking up when I'm supposed to...I've been ending up getting longer, better quality sleep. And, I've dropped some weight! :D

I'm at the end of my 3rd week. I'm still having problems getting to sleep at a decent hour. Mostly it's how I process day to day life. I allow things to bother me and upset me and I dwell on them all night long. It is now 10pm and I have not started my bedtime routine yet. Oh, Lord help me.

I'm going past the 3rd week because I am still having problems waking up after I go to sleep. Usually, I awake two times in the morning befofre I get up around 9-10am. It could be my sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome. However, I am able to sleep with a sleeping pill.

I need to make sure I'm in bed at a reasonable time each night, early enough to get at least 7 hours of sleep.

The main change that I have made is to make sure that I am in bed 7.5-8 hours before I HAVE to get up. I am also working on my schedule of 'stuff' so that I can have at least 2 days a week that I can sleep until I wake up - no alarm. I had 2 'no alarm' days this week - I got 8.5 hours both days...YEAH!

On to week four!

Sleep quality, overall, is improving and getting more hours of sleep in. Sticking to a bedtime and wake up time is very helpful. I only had one night that I struggled because of leg pain--trying to pay attention to that at bedtime, so that I will take medication if needed
