I sleep terribly most nights. I used to think it had to do with alcohol consumption, and often times too much wine does contribute to a 3am wake up. Lately however, I have been abstaining from wine with dinner and I am still having trouble with the mid-sleep wake ups, but now I am struggling with just getting to sleep. My neck always feels jumbled in the morning, especially after the deep sleep I finally do get between 4am and 7am.
After doing some research, I am trying some different supplements to help the rest come more naturally, than say an ambien. First, I tried the Sleep chocolates when I was in Coloma last May with H and his classmates as a chaperone. They did work, although I was a bit sluggish the next day. Not having read the label, I ate four of them (the max, I later found out) which was clearly too much. Last night I tried three, and I needed a bulletproof coffee to start the engine this morning. A friend had suggested I try the Calm Magnesium drink before bed. That will be tonight’s plan. I understand magnesium has many other health benefits as well, so perhaps it should be in my program anyway.
What do you do for a restful sleep?
