This morning, while searching for things to do in the morning when everyone else is still asleep, I ran across this article I thought I would share: 17 Ways to Wake Up Feeling Fresh in the Morning.

Yes, it has a long name, but it made me realize (even more) the importance of having a regular schedule and healthy habits.

I would love to hear your thoughts about any/all of these and any other suggestions that have worked for you to have a restful sleep and wake up feeling good. :)

May the Force be with you all!

I've had sleep issues for many years now. I'm a light sleeper and I frequently awaken during the night. On top of that I am also a heavy snorer (my fiancee loves this) and suffer from sleep apnea. The fact that I have to get up at 5 am doesn't help either. So I'm usually always tired to some extent.

Nobody should underestimate what a good night's rest could do for you. It's not only beneficial physically but emotionally and mentally as well.

Thanks for posting this. I hope some of these can prove helpful to me.

That's a good article and there are a few pointers I definitely need to be better at:

1) Get up straight away (no snoozing)

2) Go to bed and get up at the same times each day (something I'm failing at as I type this, haha)

----

On the other hand, I am definitely a night exerciser; if I exercise in the morning, it seriously tires me out the rest of the day. I exercise at night and am usually exhausted and fall right to sleep.

Anyway, thanks for posting the article!

I think I'm going to bed now, haha.

The other person in the bed can be a distraction if they toss and turn. We tried getting rid of the big mattress but kept its base and got 2 single mattresses onto the larger base... and it was enough difference to not notice the other person rolling around. Pillow top mattresses seem to make the edge borders, which would otherwise stuck up in the middle, almost unnoticeable - so its just as big, but better buffered being technically separate. Works good!

PS: King base + 2 Long-size Single mattresses fit perfectly, so 2 long singles beds next to each other must be the same as a King size bed but probably cheaper!!

What about sleep number beds? That's what I have. It's a king and it's on the ground on the bases.. There are two bases..?

That's a really good idea Adder. I'm a fitful sleeper, constantly kicking and tossing and turning. I think my fiancée would like the idea of two separate mattresses on one frame.

Yes your right Reliah, the King is on two seperate frames, but we have the little hook thing connecting them so a it tends to behave like a single unit. Its also really easy to move the bed if you move houses!!!! Sorry for the confusion. I hadn't seen sleep numbers, looks interesting thanks.

I've always had trouble sleeping, there are times where I lay in bed and can't feel tired or even drift into sleep at all, or constantly awaken. Then there are days in which I sleep perfectly, wish I could pinpoint whats going on. But I might have to look into changing up my sleep habits even if it might be a tad difficult :P

There's an app I got on my HTC called SleepBot and basically it tracks how long you sleep for each night and then shows how much debt you have. So if you need to sleep more or less. Its been really useful recently

    • Ryder, I hope you don't quit. This (to me) is a fairly mild confrontation with valid questions and observations. Yes some might have been made in a gentler tone. But if that unsettles you what will happen when some real shit goes down? The glass is a great idea. This one is around $10 at Amazon. I'm sure you're curious to rule out any breathing or air currents in the room especially ones you may not be aware of. If you put your experiment in it and it still works that's very interesting. If it never works that tells you something too. Stick with non-magnetic materials too. I'd be delighted to see it work under the dome myself. [attachment]
    • Meditation (Last post by Bradyn2468)
    • So since joining the Temple I have, as I am sure most have, began meditating more often. Through reading about it and experimenting with both the position and technique I have found that personally the Sieza position combined with breathing exercises works best for me. Through this I continue to learn more about myself and I can feel myself becoming calmer and more patient. As a matter of interest I would like to know now: How do YOU meditate? Thank you and MTFBWY.
    • Jedi do not smoke. (Last post by Bradyn2468)
    • Whilst I have never smoked myself and therefore can not relate to how you are feeling I do have complete faith that you can do this. It takes strength to quit, and I admire you for that. MTFBWY
    • Controlling anger (Last post by carlos.martinez3)
    • For me, controlling anger is like trying to shoot seagulls with a squirt gun... Personally , my anger is fine where it is. If its time to be angry then let it out. Most of the time we have problems with when anger shows up when its not supposed to. Who invited the Hulk to a Pick nick? lol Then what. Anger has a place in everything. It will consume if you allow it. Rather than control my anger...something a part of me and something have learned I need, I have learned to control my self. Better yet ive learned when and where things are needed. Ive learned this best thru... trial and error. Simply Trial and error. www.templeofthejediorder.org/sermons/2307-dealing-with-failure The best thing about anger I have learned is that its a stumbling block or...a brick in a greater idea. Its all in your focus and your own ideas. how do I control it, by controlling my self. Meditation to de fuse the good old fashioned green envy at the moment of contact but mostly just remembering my family is watching and so is the World, how much better if I can control my tempers and feelings and exibit ... what I practice and study, right in motion. Feel free to pm me if you have questions friend. We all have different ways of dealing with things and ourselves. I learned by doing and in doing I have learned how to calm my own anger and feelings. Do I recommend it, uhh yea! Will every one get it, sadly no. But that's ok too!
    • If you had one week left to live... (Last post by carlos.martinez3)
    • I think every one has a list of things mentally they would like to do before we pass, mine is no different. A lot of them are accomplishments more so I wouldn't have time for feeding on whole country for a year or rid a city of the current power grid... but if I were given a week ... That's Easy, I wouldn't tell any one and I would...do what...im ... doing now. I wouldn't change a thing, for me its the come home late and im tired so....foot rub heaven or shoulders sore touch of love or that days' wake up and its 6 30...and im tired... my focus is way different but those are my heavens, my daily heavens, the time when I get to release and connect. If I had a week to live I wouldn't waist it, ide continue to make more time...with my choice of people, the ones currently here! I would live in what I have built. Its a hard thing to pen and an even bolder statement but it is totally possible. if I had a week I would turn to those present and ...be with them . Thanks for the idea Rosalyn J! ps. I have been ready for death for quite a many years now. This idea rarely frightens me and only the Terms are in question and, if I do it right I won't have to worry about that part its pretty much a 50 50 shot I can or wont be in control of it.
