It would be nice if we all had jobs that allowed us to get enough sleep. Too bad we don't.

I don't get enough rest from a night's sleep. I awaken about every hour, perhaps 1/2 hour. I do better if I take an arthritis Tylenol at bedtime.

My sleep has never been great. I went to my doctor and she sent me to a sleep specialist. After the sleep study they said I would benefit from a mouth guard, my dentist refers to it as a splint. I was leery about wearing a two piece hard plastic device in my mouth. After it was properly fitted, I adapted in about a week to having it in my mouth. My partner says I no longer snore. He was surprised how quiet I am at night. I sleep more deeply. My dreams are more vivid too. I 'm more rested in the morning.

I joined the Spark Sleep Challenge to help me overcome insomnia. I deal with heart issues (palpitations often brought on in middle of night) and I'm considered pre-diabetes. i had no ideas that lack of sleep can elevate blood sugar levels. Going to redouble my efforts in week 2 to sleep for better health!

For some strange reason I do need to watch TV before I go to sleep; I have tried not watching TV, but I find that I can't sleep unless I am dead tired and usually that means watching TV until I really can't stay awake.

I've slept poorly all my life -- and have all the health issues mentioned above to prove it! Now I am paying attention to getting more sleep and I already feel better -- amazingly.
One issue not mentioned in this article -- and a major culprit for me-- is LATE NIGHT EATING! It disrupts sleep! Eating lightly and earlier in the evening really helps me both get to sleep and stay asleep.
I ate at night to stay awake. Therapy has helped me learn to relax, as well.

Most people spend more money for the bedroom furniture than they do for the mattress they sleep on. I always think it is so important to have the best one, since you spend 1/3 of the time there. Also, buy a good pillow.
