Me today ...
Hi My Friends,
I have good news on my progress. If anyone suffers from insomnia, I would highly recommend the program Go To Sleep with the Cleveland Clinic. At $40.00, it is worth every penny. I have learned so much from the daily lessons. When the six weeks are over, I will always have the lessons.
I'm starting my third week and the improvement is unreal. I was doing everything wrong. I was perpetuating the problem instead of solving it. Over the last week, I've gone to bed when I'm really sleepy and fall asleep so quickly I can't even say how long I'm awake. I listen to a 10 minute relaxation tape where a very soothing voice helps you relax from your toes to your head. His voice alone could put you to sleep. I am also not taking any sleep medication anymore. No naps unless for 15-20 minutes because longer naps add to the problem. In the past, naps were essential just to get through the day. Other changes I've made: getting ready for bed and off devices at least an hour before bed. I do not lie in bed awake for more than 20-30 minutes. I get up. It's all apart of conditioning your brain that the bed is for sleeping. I don't go to bed until I'm tired. Since I get up everyday at 8:30, I'm going to bed between 12:00 and 1. Of course that would be earlier if I were getting up earlier.
I feel like I have my life back and can deal with other changes I want to make!
Me no longer...
Thank you for stopping by. Sleep well!!
Temperature Blanket for LA, Calif in 2019
They had an unusually cold Jan and Feb. All the dark gray days had high temps below 63. All the light blue were only 63-65. Still cold for Calif sun lovers. Dark blue is 66-70 and pink 71-74. I should see more pink, wine (75-78) and purple (79-80) soon.
The picture doesn't do it justice. These colors are really pretty and so different from last year when I used all rainbow colors. Three months done.
