What Keeps You From a Good Night’s Sleep?

Okay I have to brag. I am SO proud of myself! I have been two weeks now without any caffeine! YAY ME!

The first few days were really hard, and I stayed in a major fog most of that time, but since then I have discovered a couple of positive changes in myself – one of which is my sleep patterns.

Since I have been caffeine free, I find myself able to sleep better at night, a lot better! I fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly, and I don’t toss and turn like I did before. The other change is that my stomach is shrinking. I am super excited about that.

Did you know that there are other culprits that play havoc on your sleep patterns?

I saw this really cool infographic the other day written like a fairy tale that explains a little about the foods and routines that mess with our wonderful sleep.

    My husband. As much as I love that man he can be havoc to my sleep. He likes to stay up late and watch t.v. Not a big deal but don’t come in the bedroom and ask “Are you sleeping?” I have been in here for 30 mins. I have no problem hitting that pillow and falling asleep. On top of that I gave him his hug and kiss good night.
    Besides that he wakes up at 4:45 a.m. to get ready for work. Not the most quietest person in the world. He tries to be quiet but I still hear him. This isn’t so bad. I am a morning person. By 5:30 a.m. he is leaving for work and gives me my hug and kiss good-bye. When he leaves I say my prayers in bed. A perfect quiet time.
    I know what I need for sleep. If he would just quit with the night time interruptions.

    I gave up caffeine too, about 20 years ago, because even one cup of coffee in the morning seemed to be enough to wreck my sleep at night. Now if I have even a little bit of caffeine I get totally jittery. My best advice for sleeping soundly is to keep the room really, really dark. Blackout shades. Eye mask if necessary.
