Category Archives: Sleep Restoration Status

I am currently working on getting on a better sleep schedule. These are my daily results.

Night 11 Sleep Restoration

Standard

Ideal Bedtime:11pm

Actual Bedtime:11:30pm

Bedtime Routine: Well again I was in bed almost on time. This time no melatonin. I was still very tired so I got ready for bed and fell asleep right away.

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. I really hope I am not getting sick. I felt very well rested and had plenty of energy to get everything done that I needed to get done today. This was a welcome change, because I have felt really tired lately.

Night 10 Sleep Restoration

Standard

Ideal Bedtime: 11pm

Actual Bedtime: 11pm

Bedtime Routine: I took 5mg of melatonin again and I was exhausted. I barely had the energy to get ready for bed. The good news is I got to bed on time!

Now for the bad news. I was exhausted all day. I mean really tired and groggy. It was pretty bad. I did get everything done that I needed to do but aside from that I was worthless. I will not be taking melatonin again unless I am having a really hard time going to sleep.

Night 3 Sleep Restoration

Standard

Ideal Bedtime: 11pm

Actual Bedtime: 12am

Bedtime Routine: I tried a bit of a different routine last night. Unfortunately I did not get in to bed any earlier than I had the night before. Instead of taking a bath right before I went to bed I decided to watch TV and write the post “Who Am I”. I figured that I would write a portion of the post and then save it to continue today. I  finally completed the post, got ready for bed. I slept with the fan and laid on with the heating pad set on medium. I find that the heating ad really helps to relax my shoulders. 

Today I woke up on time. I dropped my son off at school and went back to bed when I got home. I slept for a few hours. It felt great to not have a ton of things to do today. I really enjoyed getting extra rest and felt great when I woke up from my nap. 

I will attempt to be in bed earlier this evening. Overall I am happy with my results. I am going to sleep at least an hour earlier and I feel much more energized. 

Night 2 Sleep Restoration

Standard

Ideal Bedtime: 11pm

Actual Bedtime: 12am

Bedtime Routine: I planned on taking a bath at 10pm and winding down, but I got a call from a friend and talked until 11pm. After I got off the phone I took a bath. This time I used a chamomile epsom salt. I decided not to read for fear that I would not be able to put the book down. I really wish I could read a book to fall asleep like some people, but that never works for me. After my bath I laid down, turned the fan on high and listened to sleep hypnosis on YouTube. I fell asleep shortly after I laid down.

I woke up on time. I was pretty tired through out the day though. I planned on taking a nap, but unfortunately I was too busy.

I am definitely going to attempt to get in bed earlier tonight…let’s see if I succeed.
