    I definitely agree with this article.
  • This can help me out. Good article.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • At night, I have no trouble falling asleep but do have problems staying asleep.
  • Thank you for sharing. I will try some of these methods.
  • Thanks for sharing
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
