sleeping

is not going well for me these days… which is bad, cause i’m a damn good sleeper.between the CSI / Criminal Minds / 24 episodes that reveal exciting new forms of torture moments before bedtime and work/travel-induced anxiety, i either find myself standing up in the middle of the night trying to catch a plane or starting a meeting, or i’m anxiously killing TV terrorists and villains until i’m even more exhausted then when i first went to bedambiden or ambien, or whatever your name is, i’m not ready for you yet, but i see you in my rearview mirror. i’m going to pull from the thorson playbook and start with some whiskey before bed me thinks.other ideas?

  1. Many people think that having a drink of alcohol will help them fall asleep since it’s a depressant. While this is initially true, you’re more likely to wake up in the middle of the night and experience nightmares and night sweats due to withdrawal of alcohol clearing from your system. Avoid or limit your use of alcohol at least a few hours before bedtime.Thank you, SparkPeople:http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellness_articles.asp?id=860

  2. i hope this comment doesn’t post twice, but it doesn’t seem to have worked the first time.i can’t sleep either. my technique is usually just to toss and turn for hours. but you may want to read this — 1. No reading or watching TV in bed. These are waking activities. If your insomnia is chronic, it is not a good thing to do, says Dr. Alex Clerk, head of Stanford Sleep Disorder Clinic in Palo Alto. 2. Go to bed when you’re sleepy-tired, not when it’s time to go to bed by habit. 3. Wind down during the second half of the evening before bedtime. 90 minutes before bed, don’t get involved in any kind of anxiety provoking activities or thoughts. 4. Do some breathing exercises or try to relax major muscle groups, starting with the toes and ending with your forehead. 5. Your bed is for sleeping, if you can’t sleep after 15-20 minutes, get up and do something relaxing. 6. Have your room cool rather than warm. 7. Don’t count sheep, counting is stimulating. 8. Exercise in the afternoon or early evening, but no later than 3 hours before bedtime. 9. Don’t over-eat, and eat 2-3 hours before bedtime. 10. Don’t nap during the day. 11. If you awake in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep within 30 minutes, get up and do something else. 12. Have No coffee, alcohol or cigarettes two to three hours before bedtime. 13. If you have disturbing dreams or nightmares add an ending that you want. 14. Schedule a half-hour writing about your concerns and hopes in a journal every night to free up your sleep from processing your dilemmas as much. 15. Listen to calming music or a self-hypnosis tape for sleep.
