Ok so this isn't really workout related but, I have issues with being a night owl of sorts. I am usually up till 3am and sleep most of the time till noon. I have a late kinda life where my son is the night owl as well. I just want to know what can I do to help get a better sleeping pattern and sleep less then 10 hours. I like my sleep and so does my son but my problem is just falling asleep at an earlier time. I've done the Tylenol pm and things like that but it doesn't seem to help me. I feel so useless during the day cuz I'm still tired. If anyone knows any remedy or just a helpful tip, I'd be very grateful. This all just seems to be my normal since I became a stay at home mother to our 1yo. I'm desperate for better sleeping habits for all of us.
You can try diaphragmatic breathing.
I have the same problem and I try to get in a really good work out then take a long shower and it usually helps me sleep. Then I set my alarm for an early hour so I get tired earlier. Hope this was helpful
You know what you describe is same as me..I find myself at 2-3am reading something totally useless but cant leave it alone or looking on ebay for that thing Ive always wanted but not interested the next day.
I sometime think my body clock is a few hours out, but as the other person said...up early, tired earlier (sometimes) the weekend throws it out again a constant circle.
Try Melatonin. Its a vitamin. Helps with sleep. When I take it I crash. I have the same issue. But its bc I dont get home from work till 11pm. So once I get a normal job ill end up with the issue of trying to get regular sleep patterns haha
I started the melatonin last night but the only downfall I have from it is it makes me want to sleep longer then normal. My son still gets up in the middle of the night too. I will continue the melatonin and see if it gets better. What are some good meditations to do? And where can I find good ones.
