How about you? Do you have any negative habits that might effect your sleep? Do you drink caffeine before bed? Stay on the computer til bedtime or watch tv until you fall asleep?
What's your prebedtime routine if you have any? Do you get a set amount of hours of sleep during the week? Do you get more or less sleep on the weekends? Etc....
I drink coffee in the evening, it works wonders, I am asleep almost immediately from it (only Red Bull and those pre-surgery medications they put through an I.V. can render me unconscious faster)
I used to stay attached to the computer up until I felt groggy enough for sleep, then realized that shutting down and placing the unit (laptop) back in it's holding cell reenergized me. Tele goes off at least a half hour prior to sleep unless I am feeling under the weather.
Yeah, my general 'routine' is to take a last minute visit to the bathroom, then brush teeth, rinse face with cool water, then check to make sure door is locked, all faucets are off and the doomie-jiggies on the stove that turn the gas on are shut off fully. While there, I make sure the refrigerator door is shut tight. Then, and only then I am ready for the next decision.
Sometimes a last minute food noshing, sometimes not. A few quick sips of water and then I lay down, listen to some music (either in the radio or through the phone (android) ). Do some last minute leg exercises, feel tired, shut the music off and attempt to sleep.
If the phone rings during these moments, there's a 99% chance I won't answer. Talking on the phone just screws up my sleeping ability as I end up with all that chatter stirring around on the outer banks of my brain-very annoying.
Mind you, the above is just a usual routine, I like to change things around occasionally.
Amount of sleep is usually between 5 and 8 hours (6 being an average in recent times), same schedule holds on the weekend. If I need more rest, there are the naps (something insanely new for me) in the afternoon which can be anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours (which really messes with my sleep for the upcoming night).
