Last night I thought I slept a good 7.5 hours, but the Zeo said I only slept for 5.3. I wonder who's right? I feel okay today.

You are.

This is why I don't have one of these things...same reason I don't have a speedometer on my bike anymore. Maintaining a 17mph average speed became more important than enjoying the ride...

I feel your pain because it's exactly the same deal for me. It's tough to roll over when you're handcuffed spread eagle to the bed frame.

I sleep like zeo said that you sleep on many nights. I toss and turn a lot and see the clock multiple times at night. I feel "okay" too..but I wonder would I feel a lot better if my sleep wasn't as interrupted as it is. Maybe I just got used to "okay"

Last night about 5:30am I kept cat napping until 6:30am when I got up. The Vivofit chart showed a slightly higher activity bump ... Probably just my change of sleeping sides. I think it still felt restful during that last hour.

I'm not sure I'm liking where this is going. But, then, again, maybe it's just a form of male bonding. (I wish I hadn't said that).

You guys! Sounds like you have discovered some activities that provide you with great consolation for not sleeping well, when that happens.

As for me, since I retired I have been sleeping like a ROCK (and no, this has nothing to do with sex! ). I just wonder when I will start having the usual age related sleep problems that most people seem to have. I'm no kid any more.

If/when I have sleep problems in retirement these days, they are of the "I don't wanna go to bed!" type (visualize little girl stamping foot). Once I do go to bed, I sleep like the dead until my alarm goes off. (I have to set the alarm or I go into 25-26 hour days, as I have mentioned previously.)

Insomnia Cure with 80%+ Success Rate for Me

I remember posting to a thread about techniques for dealing with insomnia, saying I listened to classical music softly.

I can't find that particular thread, but this one seems appropriate. Being back in the Midwest let me find just what that station was.

It's the local NPR FM station, and what they do is stream a program called "Classical 24". I think it is available nationally.

"softly", for me, means volume level 2 on a 20-level scale.

Edit: Ha! I guess that was THIS thread!

I went through a terrible bout of anxiety and sleeplessness a couple months ago. Once I began sleeping again the anxiety lifted rather quickly. Because I did not want to take any addictive anti-anxiety drugs or insomnia drugs my doctor started me on a regime of magnesium, 5-HTP, B complex vitamins, vitamin D, and melatonin. The melatonin works like a charm. I take one every night and within an hour I am fighting to keep my eyes open. I'm getting 8 hours again and starting to feel nearly normal again.

Marita40, what strength Melatonin are you taking? In the past, if I've taken too high a dose, I notice I'm "hungover" the next day and could take 3 naps if my j*b would allow it. I'm down to 1mg, which seems to be just right for me.

SumDay I'm taking 5 mg. Now that I'm feeling a lot better I'd like to start to reduce this slowly.
