First post of the day! Good morning people!

;)


Lets keep this thread moving people!!!


End of kindergarten party: check.


They're at the end of school year assembly now.


And in a half hour I have to go pick up the kid. Yay, school's out.....For about two weeks. Then summer session starts.

I dream of year round school!


Year round school does have appeal. But I have to get up even earlier to get him to summer school than for the regular school year. And I am not a morning person.

I am so not a morning person...many alarm clocks have died tragic deaths at my hands!

Life has forced me to become a morning person. I had so much more energy when I worked at nights.I used to be able to go for 20-24 hours when I was doing that.

I go on about 6 hours of sleep a nite! Enjoying it while I can...once I finish school it will be early morning classrooms for me!


Only 162 posts...I am slacking!

I used to have to buy the metal ones with the bells.

*Ring* *thud* *crash*

Every morning as I lobbed it into the wall as hard as I could. I still don't know how those clocks managed to survive for months at a time.

Yep, me too. As long as I get my six hours I'm good. But it's going to be really hard getting that six hours when I have to get up earlier. Because there is no way in the world I am going to be able to go to sleep earlier. Stupid insomnia.

Keys to getting to sleep earlier:

No sugar or caffeine six hours prior to going to bed.
Eat a good meal, then exercise.
Read.

Regarding the sugar caffeine, my doctor explained it to me when I was being treated for High Blood Pressure (over that, thank you very much). When you constantly have sugary or caffeinated foods/drinks, your insulin level spike and crashes at high peaks and troughs and a shorter wavelength since the sugar and caffeine "burns" quick and fast. If you have a meal full of carbs/proteins, they burn much slower so the insulin levels remain more constant. Sugars/caffeine = gasoline; carbs/proteins = coal.

Exercising helps you sleep by working out that last bit of energy and toning your muscles. After a good workout, the muscles need to repair the damage done from the exercise (when you work out, you're doing minor damage to the muscles so that when it repairs itself, it makes the muscles stronger and more flexible).

Having the good meal and getting some exercise tells your body it's time to start processing all the internal stuff, so blood flow will elevate to the areas it's needed (digestion/muscle repair) and away from you're mental exercises.

As for reading, that's my own personal advice. I find that when I read, my eyes have less strain than watching television, and I relax more with the quiet.

I'm hypoglycemic so I have to watch what I eat/drink all the time anyways. I'm very familiar with the whole blood sugar crashing thing.:)

None of that stuff helps me get more sleep. Glad it works for you though.

Ah well.

There's always drinking a bottle of wine until you pass out. ;)

Doesn't help much the next morning, though...

<<<caffine addiction, without soda or coffee I get migranes. Also when I work untill midnite it is hard to get to bed before 2 am, trying to get settled and wind down from work.

I almost bought one of those last nite, but I felt they would be harder to ignore!

Lol :)

I'm pretty limited on my alcohol intake anyways. It increases the vertigo a lot. (Stupid water-retaining ears) I've only ever drunk enough to end up with a hangover later once. Not looking for a repeat performance. :)

Why let being at work stop you?

Because my customers get real mad when I log on to their computers when I'm supposed to be treating their homes.
