  • I can sleep standing up when I'm tired, but there are times when I am just not tired. I usually do not eat after 7pm at night and go to bed around 10pm. Some nights I have trouble staying asleep. Once I wake up, I'm up. (for instance to go to the bathroom). I try not to drink a whole lot after 7pm either. When I wake up, I get my book and read or if it isn't too close to getting up time, I will heat up some hot chocolate and sip on that. It usually does the trick and I can fall back to sleep and stay there. - 5/25/2016 8:39:03 PM
  • Exercise has certainly helped. For me, what seems to be most important for restful sleep is a light dinner, not eating after dinner and allowing at least 3 hours between dinner and bedtime. If I eat a larger dinner, more time between dinner and bed is required of me for restful sleep. - 12/16/2015 10:34:13 AM

  • I have no problem falling asleep, my challenge is waking in the wee hours. On days I exercise, I do tend to sleep better, not wake as often and have more energy the following day. Another great motivation to be active daily. Thanks for the great article. - 2/28/2014 3:44:27 PM

  • Not always the case. I seem to go in cycles. . . . Recently on the 'not so much' sleep cycle . . . although I am working out and eating right . . . and meditating and relaxation . . . and taking melatonin. . . . hmmmm - 8/26/2013 4:27:30 PM
  • I'm sleeping better since I started exercising. I realize now that being totally sedentary was causing a build up of muscle tension. Also finding that just five minutes of gentle yoga before turning out the lights helps me fall asleep better. - 5/26/2013 11:30:26 PM
  • When I came home from the doctor and I was away from home fir three months I could not sleep good for the pain in my hip. So I started to exercise and change my eating habits. My hubby say to me alot oh you slept well last night. Because I would get up and let him sleep because he had to get up at five in the morning. But if it's going to rain I will not sleep goodbecause of the pain in my hip - 5/22/2013 7:29:21 AM
  • I've been working on getting to bed by 9p so I can get up at 3a do 30 min on the treadmill then get ready for work. I bring my meals with me everyday and try to keep it healthy. I work 12-13.5 hrs, try to do another 10-20 min on the treadmill, shower, and jump into bed. Right now I have no problem going to sleep. I do however try to delay by watching TV. I love my shows. I do get a little more sleep on the days I'm off. - 5/27/2012 11:41:41 AM
    Due to a few years of big STRESSFUL situations ~ I started self-medicating by watching old movies on my pc. this led to lots of radiation and I couldn't turn them off ~ it felt like I was strapped to my couch.

    I Knew 6 hours of resulting sleep was horrible but found it so hard to change as now my adrenals were wired and got a second wind in the late evening.

    Answer to all in same boat: get Rescue Remedy Insomnia Spray. 2 tiny sprays in mouth and voila, I am yawning and go to bed to read about 8:30 to 9:30 pm and lights are out within 20 min. I sleep like a baby and I am turning my life around! so I can get up early and live my life, exercise, take a walk, yoga or just relax and be with me instead of the
    frantic treadmill of running late all day and running so very low on energy due to my past late nights and boucou radiation I got from late night pc movie viewing.

    try it! if it can work for me ~ surely it can work for anyone!

  • I like to sleep nine hours every night. - 1/3/2012 10:33:08 PM
    I find it interesting that the older people in my life as a child were farmers/gardeners who could work me into the ground, but always got close to ten hours sleep. I, too, have had times in my life when I had to work in power naps because family and work responsibilities interfered with my sleep. However, with sleep, I am healthier, happier and calmer and my family likes me better. LOL - 7/30/2011 8:30:22 AM
