  • I think sleep is so important that when I nap I do NOT limit it to 20 minutes. The reasons for this are simple. Your body will wake up when it needs to, go with the flow. For every hour that you are sleep deprived will take two hours to make it up. Let your body do its job, and you will be healthier! Just take a nap. If you only have 20 minutes, do NOT take a nap. Wait until you have at least three or four hours, or it is bedtime. None of this 20 minute nap business, it's NOT good for you! - 5/25/2015 1:23:39 PM

  • After reading all of these tips on how to reset sleepin g pattern and not being able to fast due to hypoglycemia, I will try the follow:

    Be in bed by 10:30 pm and try to sleep around 11 pm latest. No tv, computer by 9 pm.
    Set alarm for 8 am. Eat as soon as I wake up. Excercise and never get comfy no matter how tired I am.

    Repeat until body knows it has NO CHOICE BUT to adjust.

    In the past my sleep pattern would reset naturally within a couple months but I don't want to wait that long considering it's making me gain weight.

    Hope this works! - 10/22/2013 3:48:59 PM
  • Sleep has not been a friend of mine for some time now. I have a 17 month old who had several health issues that seem to impact his sleep, which in turn impacted mine. Now, he has been taken off all of his medications and it has begun to show. I am working on getting a routine that will help us to both get to sleep and get better sleep. Wish me well! - 6/17/2013 3:49:40 PM
  • Does anyone have any solutions for arms falling asleep during the night (besides not sleeping on your side)? My husband often wakes up throughout the night because his arms have fallen asleep. He can only sleep on his back for so long and then back to the side, and then his arm he's laying on falls asleep. Anyone else have that issue? Would a body pillow help? - 4/18/2013 10:11:22 AM

  • My sleep is impacted when I have a really intense day with lots of mental stimutation. My brain just doesn't seem to want to shut down. I to my best thinking while I sleep. Answers to some of the day's challenges are found. Of course need to get up and write them down otherwise they will be forgotten. So this resultsbin tossing and turning and less than optimal # of hours sleeping. Definitely can use some tips in this article. - 11/16/2012 5:50:29 AM
  • Since August of 2001, I would naturally wake at about 1:45 am , as time has declined I have gradually been naturally wake up sooner. I am naturally waking up at about 1:00 am. Days I am unable to fall asleep no later then 7:00 pm, I will be awake 40 to 62 hours. There has been a few incidents when I have been awake for at least 81 hours. Sleeping aide have never had any impact. There is no stress involved. I began walking several miles when waking up but has had very little to no impact. - 9/30/2012 7:35:53 PM

    My problem is not that I sleep too little, but that my hours are quite odd. I am a college student who mostly only has afternoon / evening classes, and I have a seasonal job at a greenhouse. Because I only work weekends right now, and my classes are in the evening, I've fallen into going to sleep at around 4 to 5 am, waking up at about 1 pm. I've always been a major night owl, but this is really not how I want to spend my life. I LOVE nights, but I really miss the daytime. - 9/10/2012 2:00:26 AM

    I have been making a serious effort to get plenty of sleep but for the moment have had to go onto some strong painkillers which make me feel drowsy anyway but am getting between 7/8 hours sleep at night. I am going to bed early instead of staying up when I recognise I feel tired and am beginning to feel better for it. Iactually did not feel hungry when I would normally have gone on eating so hope that I have cracked some of the reason I overeat. merrygerrysanta - 8/7/2012 6:05:08 AM

    Thanks for the ideas for better sleep. I usually get 5 or fewer hours of sleep--with one or two trips to the bathroom so I guess I rarely get to the deepest sleep levels. - 3/11/2012 9:17:42 AM
